What is LED Lighting ?
When you install LED lights, also known as light-emitting diodes, in your facility, you’ll start to see the energy savings add up right away. These semiconductor devices are used to convert electricity into light, and they use up to 70 percent less energy than halogen or incandescent light bulbs. This can result in significant savings on your energy bills!
The Advantages of LED Lighting in Your Facility
Perhaps the most attractive trait of LED lighting is the energy savings that this technology provides. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, if everyone were to switch over to LED lighting over the next two decades, it could save $250 billion in energy costs across the United States. Aside from the money saved, LED lighting also emit a much smaller amount of heat compared to their incandescent counterparts which can release 80 to 90 percent of their energy as heat. When your lighting system doesn’t have to work as hard to produce heat, your HVAC system won’t need to work overtime to cool your facility down. At the end of the day, the less energy consumed equals less operating costs.
LED Lights are Easy to Maintain
In addition to reduced energy consumption, LED lights are much easier to maintain compared to traditional incandescent bulbs. LED bulbs can last between 35 to 50 times longer than other light bulbs, and their diodes have an outstanding operational lifespan of up to 100,000 hours or longer. A comparable compact fluorescent bulb can last anywhere between 8,000 to 10,000 hours. Instead of constantly replacing traditional light bulbs, you can reduce labor costs in commercial industries by upgrading to an LED lighting system.
LED Lights Are Very Durable
Unlike traditional light options, LED lighting was created without filaments or glass enclosures, making LED technology resistant to cracking or breaking. This means that LED lighting can withstand shock, vibration, and even extreme temperatures because they utilize a semiconductor material that is extremely durable. This durability make LED lighting applicable to most any environment while ensuring high quality lighting output.
