LED Lighting Tips for Commercial Use
Date Posted:9 September 2016
At Creative Lighting Solutions Aust, we’re used to answering questions about green renovations and upgrades. As the world gradually wakes up to the reality of global warming, more and more businesses are turning to eco-friendly lighting products. This is great news for the planet and for their annual energy bills, but the decision does come with some challenges. For instance, how do you replace and upgrade all of the lighting in a commercial space?
What is the best way to make the switch, while keeping expenses low and avoiding downtime? Well, as we always tell businesses, the first place to start is with the size of the task. Are you hoping to replace all of the fixtures with LED alternatives or only a portion? How big is the commercial space? Can the upgrade be split into sections? These are important questions and the answers will advise you on the best way to approach an LED upgrade.
This guide to the main benefits of switching to LED lighting in your commercial space will explain why the transition is always worthwhile.
Kinder to the Environment
LED bulbs and fixtures are the most energy efficient option on the market; certainly that can be used large scale, across a sizeable commercial workspace. They are significantly more economical than CFL products. Yet, they are as easy to install and use, as well as being more affordable now than ever before. So, if you are concerned about the health of your environment and want to contribute to its maintenance and care, LED lighting is the right choice for your business.
Cuts Energy Bills in Half
A single LED bulb, when used to replace a standard one, can save a business as much as $40 over the course of its lifespan. Just imagine the size of those savings if you swapped all or most of the traditional lighting in your building with this greener, leaner alternative. This extra money would give you the opportunity to invest in new directions, fresh objectives, and innovative developments. And, all you need to do is change your bulbs; it really is that simple.
Keeps Workspaces Cool
One of the benefits of LED lighting that tends to be overlooked is the fact that it doesn’t produce excess amounts of heat, as standard bulbs do. This not only saves money on wasted energy, it keeps the commercial environment cool and comfortable to be in. We’ve all found ourselves stuck inside a sticky, hot office on a scorching summer day. It is not a nice place to have to focus and be productive, so why add to the pressure with highly inefficient, heat based lighting? Keep your workforce cool, calm, and collected and you’ll get a lot more done.
Stays Stronger for Longer
We now know for sure – studies continue to prove it – that LED lighting outshines incandescent and halogen products by up to 25 times. It is no overstatement to say that a business can go years without ever having to replace their LED bulbs. So, not only will this small investment help you maintain high productivity levels, it will shrink your general expenses. The typical LED fixture will stay illuminated for 50,000 hours, which means that you could keep the bulb burning for five years before needing a replacement. This is, of course, terrible for the environment, so we don’t recommend it, but it is a pretty impressive statistic.
