In recent years, there’s been a great societal revolution to find energy-efficient solutions for our everyday lives. From alternative energy to solar roofing, there are countless ways for the average person to reduce their carbon footprint.
For commercial building owners, perhaps the greatest energy-efficient solution available is LED lighting. You’re surely somewhat aware of what LED lighting is, but what are the true benefits that LED lighting can offer your commercial building? We’ve put together a list to pinpoint exactly how your company will benefit from an LED transition.
- Return on Investment
The most exciting incentive for most building owners is the remarkable ROI that you’ll experience. The payback period for an LED transition is as short as 1-2 years in most cases. You’ll also be able to expect an additional ROI of 12-15 times the original investment! Beyond this, LEDs produce less heat than traditional light sources, so you’ll save money on your air-conditioning as it won’t work so hard to cool down your building. The cost will not only be paid off quickly, but the energy efficiency will save your company wallet an incredible amount on utility bills.
- Low Maintenance
LEDs offer up to 100,000 hours of light, meaning that your staff will spend less time changing light bulbs and more time focusing on their important daily tasks. When it comes to outdoor lighting, their durability can withstand any exposure to weather, wind, rain, and vibrations.
- Versatile Options
LED lights come in a wide range of designs and sizes, so they are applicable anywhere in your commercial building. You can use LEDs in parking lots, unique displays, office ceilings, or anywhere else that you’d like to emit light inside or outside of your building.
- Safe Alternative
Fluorescent lights contain mercury, which is something that many people are not aware of. When they break, your employees are exposed to the dangerous effects that airborne mercury produces. On the other hand, LEDs contain neither Mercury or CO2! They are also not encased in glass! They produce very little infrared light and therefore, no UV emissions. Plus, LED lights don’t require a ballast to transfer electricity into the light source, so you’ll avoid the unnecessary risk of electrical exposure when installing and maintaining them.
- Quality Lighting
When clients walk into your establishment, you want to make sure their first impressions are nothing less than superb. Lighting sets the mood for an indoor experience, and LED lights can deliver more lumens with fewer lights. Don’t take our word for it, check out some case studies to see for yourself!
