Are you a business owner who owns a commercial facility? Have you given any thought of making the transition to LED lighting for your building? If you haven’t made the switch, you should know that you are missing out on the most advanced light source available today. With that being said, here are just a few benefits of choosing LED lighting for your commercial building!
Were you aware that LED is the most energy-efficient light source currently available? An LED light bulb can last up 80,000 hours! That is significantly longer than a standard incandescent bulb. A LED bulb converts practically of its energy to light and virtually none to heat. Since this is the case, if you make the switch to LED lights, they will provide a significantly cooler environment for the inside of your commercial building.
Did you know that LED lighting does not contain any kinds toxic chemicals? When compared to fluorescent lights, they are drastically better for the environment. This is because fluorescent lights use mercury as a central component. When fluorescent lights are tossed into the trash, the neurotoxins in the lights can cause mercury contamination. As a result, animals and other forms of wildlife can be harmed from the exposure to mercury. It can also be extremely dangerous to young children if they are overexposed to these toxic chemicals.
Won’t Attract Insects
One unrecognized benefit of LED lighting is that they do not attract insects. Other light sources attract bugs because they give off UV light and considerable amounts of heat. If you tired of seeing all sorts of bugs always fly around the outside of your building, make the switch to LED lighting!
Are Not Hot
Most people are not aware that LED lights are actually cool to the touch. Compared to other lights, you will not hurt yourself by touching an LED light. Halogen lights, on the other hand, can cause a person severe burns if they come in contact with a person’s skin.
