In these difficult financial times, it is more important than ever for businesses to try to cut their costs as much as possible. One of the easiest ways to do this is to install LED lighting.
LED lighting can be used wherever your business currently uses incandescent, halogen or fluorescent lights, and will contribute to overall savings for your firm over using traditional lighting solutions.
This eco-friendly option is beneficial to the environment as they are energy efficient and contain no mercury or lead which can be harmful. They are simple to recycle and safe to use. However, the major bonus for your company is that they are extremely long lasting and durable. Whereas a standard incandescent bulb only burns for around 1,200 hours before requiring replacement, an LED bulb lasts a massive 50,000 hours before a new one has to be installed. This represents a clear saving on initial purchase costs. In real terms for your commercial premises, you are likely to get 10 years of usage out of a single LED light bulb which is excellent value for money.
LED lighting also uses considerably less energy than traditional bulbs. Over the course of a single year, a single incandescent light bulb will use 3,285 KW of energy while an LED bulb uses a mere 329 KW annually. It is easy to see how this represents a saving in your firm’s electricity bills, and when these bulbs are used to replace all your existing lighting it is very easy to see how quickly these savings mount up. This results in substantial cost cutting for your business. Statistics show that companies using LED bulbs in place of incandescent ones can make real term savings of up to 86% on their annual energy bills.
Another added advantage of LED lights is that they do not emit heat in the same way as an incandescent or halogen bulb meaning that your air conditioning system will no longer have to work as hard in order to function effectively, adding up to even greater savings on your yearly energy bills.
