LED Lighting: Top 5 Reasons to Switch
LED Lighting: In today’s forever changing marketplace, there are many lighting choices available for businesses ranging from the more traditional incandescent bulbs, compact fluorescent lights (CFLs), halogens, to light emitting diodes (LEDs).
LEDs are now becoming a more popular choice for general lighting applications across a broad range of applications including warehouse lighting, office lighting, school lighting, hospital lighting, gyms architectural, automotive, showrooms, entertainment facilities, manufacturing lighting, construction sites and even car parks.
Reduce Site Energy Bills by up to 80%
LED lighting is a key driver that can help businesses reduce their operations and maintenance costs by up to 80%. LED lighting can be tailored to each individual workspace including uniformity and colour rendering index (CRI), every space can be customised with the appropriate LED lighting technology from warehouses, reception areas and corridors. Working environments can be significantly improved with individually smart controlled luminaires, that can be flexibly and wirelessly controlled designed to save energy and reduce energy costs. Further cost reductions can also be achieved by generating your own power from photovoltaic solar panel installation.
Our World is Changing
In the age of IoT and a world full of automation with rapid technological advancement in machine learning, augmented reality, artificial intelligence (AI) and LED lighting systems, the transformational impact on the lighting industry is huge.
With increasing technologies and demand for connectivity, it is time to recognise our world is changing and businesses are facing increasing challenges every day. Increasing population growth and urbanisation, alternative renewable energy sources such as solar power and limited fossil fuels have also increased the demand for more energy-efficient connected lighting technology.
LED lighting can have an enormous impact on your businesses bottom line, advantages include: -reducing operational costs through reduced downtime and lower energy consumption, improve employee’s safety and productivity levels. Every LED lighting system retrofit, and new installation, presents a golden opportunity for businesses to lay down the foundation for a “future-proof” LED lighting system. If the average lifespan of an LED system is 10 years, and the incremental system cost is very modest, there is no better time to make the switch to an energy-efficient LED lighting system.
ELe’s Top 5 Reasons to Switch your Existing Lighting to LED
1) Energy Savings and Efficiency
Compared to compact fluorescents lights CFLs, LED lights are up to 80% more efficient as they require less energy because they draw far less electricity than other lighting technologies. LEDs lose 5% of the generated energy to heat the remainder is converted into light.
Their reduced energy consumption makes LEDs the perfect choice to use in buildings that can get hot such as manufacturing plants and restaurants. Less heat means less demand on air conditioning systems and cooling systems, making LEDs a safer option as they are very unlikely to overheat.
2) Reduced Maintenance Costs
Unlike conventional light sources that reduce in output and abruptly fail, LEDs do not normally suddenly stop working, reducing maintenance costs.
Making the switch to LED light bulbs offers significant energy savings over incandescent and compact fluorescent lights as LEDs consume up to 80% less energy compared to alternative light bulbs.
3) Environmentally Friendly
Switching to lower wattage LEDs can reduce overall CO2 emissions and your carbon footprint.
LEDs do not contain highly toxic mercury, compared to CFLs this helps to reduce toxic waste when the LED bulbs are disposed of. LEDs also last a very long time, using fewer LED lamps means less waste in the form of packaging and transportation.
LED technology is affordable compared to the cost of the more traditional light bulbs.
Switching to LED lighting, will use significantly less energy, decreasing your monthly bills resulting in impressive cost savings for your business.
LED lights last much longer than other lighting products. LED bulbs and diodes have a superior operational life span, they do not have filaments or glass bulbs, making them very durable.
