The last 20 years have seen a huge surge in LED lighting in the marketplace, and it’s no accident. LED lights are popular for their brightness, efficiency, easy maintenance, and long lifespans. With how much money and power they save, it’s no wonder that LED lighting has swept the nation and only continues to grow in popularity. Those kinds of savings haven’t stopped in the home, either. Stores and offices everywhere have upgraded their commercial spaces with affordable, efficient LED lighting. Here are just some of the many advantages of LED lighting that managers and planners alike should consider for their commercial lighting options.
While incandescent bulbs are known to blow or burn out after only 1,000 hours or less, LED lights can last up to 50,000 hours or longer with the right quality lights and fixtures. Additionally, they don’t simply go out. LED lights to begin to dim at the end of their life. This allows for better maintenance of aesthetic in a commercial space and less time and money on light maintenance. Changing lights 50 times less often can allow you to focus labor costs on productivity.
LEDs don’t contain filaments like incandescent lights, and they aren’t typically contained in glass like most traditional lighting options. Instead, they tend to be soldered directly onto a circuit board. For this reason, they break less often and are only really susceptible to direct impacts, making them a safer option for any commercial floor (no broken glass in the case of lighting maintenance accidents!) and an inexpensive one as well. Fewer broken lights mean fewer lighting replacements.
3. Energy Efficiency
Another reason that LED lights last so much longer is that they use much less power. In fact, they use about half the power of popular commercial lighting options like incandescent, halogen, and fluorescent bulbs. This eliminates an incredible amoung of waste when it comes to lighting, which translates directly into financial savings.
