Wondering what the best light to use to light up your industrial or commercial space? Are you comparing which kind of light to use to light up your warehouse or commercial space? The benefits for each kind of lighting system, fluorescent, halogen, incandescent and LED lights are many. However, more and more of our commercial clients are opting for LEDs to light there space. There are many advanced types of LED lights available today which are more economical, shine brighter and last longer. But since they are relatively new and are “unknown,” you might be missing out on some great opportunities. Here are three tips to on why buying LED lights is the smart move for your commercial space.
1. Design and Style
As a result of technology today LED lights are very flexible, enabling them to be installed in many differents ways. It also enables you to customize the lights into any design you want them to be in. Since LED lights come in various colors with a 80-90 color rendering, 100 being the best, they are a great way to brighten up your commercial space.
2. Efficiency of LED Lights
LED lights are a very easy way to decrease your office and warehouse bills. Because they don’t need much energy to emit light compared to fluorescent, halogen, and incandescent lights, if you have older lights you may want to consider converting them to LED. LED lights also have a much longer lifespan compared to other lights. LED lights have an average lifespan of 50,000 hours whereas fluorescent lights last about 10,000 hours. That’s roughly a 15 year difference if you have a lamp that’s on 6 hours a day for 365 days. You may see an instant decrease in your bill, up to 45% depending on the fitting chosen.
3. All the Environmental Benefits
LED lights are overall very beneficial for our environment. They don’t use mercury in manufacturing them, the heat does not build up in the bulbs, and compared to incandescent lights LEDs are five times more efficient. LED emits more light for the amount it consumes energy. Although LED light can be more expensive to purchase initially, the cheap operating costs and the much longer lifespan make them the hands-down winner in the long run for any commercial warehouse space. To make most use of every LED light, you may want to consider dimming or even turning the LEDs off when there’s not a necessity for another light source other than the daylight. This will fully make it possible for you to have the LED operating its full lifespan that can go up to even 100,000 hours. To insure your safety and the efficiency for your workers, use LED lights to light up any space.
