10 Reasons For Businesses to choose LED Lights
When it comes to your business, you want to save as much money as possible on overheads. While you may be focusing on things like labour and inventory, you should also pay attention to the details, such as your lighting.
These days, energy efficiency is slowly permeating our culture and landscape, which is why it’s so crucial to switch to items that use less of it. Not only will it help protect the environment and reduce our destructive legacy, but it makes sound financial sense as well.
Thus, switching the lights in your business to LED's is a smart move no matter how you look at it. Nonetheless, there are a lot more benefits you can get from making this switch. Here are ten of reasons why businesses should choose LED light solutions.
1 Longer Lasting
Unlike your home, your business needs to have lights on all day long. This puts a lot of strain on the bulbs, although the continuous operation is not as damaging as turning them on and off a lot. As such, you need lights that can last as long as possible so that you don’t have to replace them on a regular basis.
LED's are built to be durable and reliable, meaning that you can have the same light bulbs in your business for up to 10 years or so. This is even with a constant flow of energy through them.
2 Less Heat
The main problem with incandescent or CFL bulbs is that they get hot. This can be a problem if you have to put lights close to where your customers are going to sit or interact. Fortunately, LED's don’t have this issue, since they don’t produce any heat at all. This not only helps with climate control (imagine how much heat a dozen bulbs can create) but safety as well.
Another primary issue with standard bulbs is that they are made of toxic chemicals. Incandescent ones have tungsten filaments, which cannot be reused. CFL bulbs use gas, which is slightly toxic. LED's, on the other hand, are 100% recyclable. Not only will this allow you to dispose of them more efficiently, but you can also feel good that they didn’t use pollutants or toxins when they were made. Overall, LED's are eco-friendly from inception to destruction.
4 Directional Light
When you use a standard bulb, you’ll notice that it emits light in all directions. This is because of the nature of how it operates, so the only way you can point it anywhere is using a shade or reflector.
LED bulbs are much better for directional light because they can be designed to shine in a specific way. This means that you can point them exactly where you want them, which can be extra helpful when you’re trying to create a comfortable and welcoming ambience for your customers.
5 Energy Savings
The fact is that you can save up to 80-90% of the energy you would otherwise use on a standard or CFL bulb. LED's are so efficient with power that they will pay for themselves after just a couple of years.
If you operate a large office, storefront or industrial unit this can create a lot of savings for your business. Considering that they are on for much longer than usual, you will be able to put money back in your pocket every hour that they are lit.
You may think that LED's use glass for their bulbs like regular lights, but you would be wrong. Because they don’t use glass, these models are perfect for outdoor lighting, even if you live in an area with harsh weather conditions. Cold, rain and extreme heat don’t affect LED's so that you can place them practically anywhere without any problems.
If you want to make things more controllable, then you need dimmer switches. When compared to regular bulbs, LED's are much better at dimming than anything else. Plus, if you keep them at a lower level, they will last for a lot longer (up to twice as much life).
8 No UV Emissions
If you operate a restaurant or other establishment with perishable products, you have to consider your environment so that nothing spoils. Standard incandescent or CFL lights produce some UV rays, which can exacerbate the problem, particularly for raw meats. LED's, on the other hand, have no such emissions, so they are safe for all kinds of operations, even those that are highly sensitive.
9 Brighter Light
Getting back to your overall aesthetic, LED bulbs emit a pure, white light. Unlike incandescent which can be too yellow, you get a better image with LED's. This is perfect for a variety of reasons, but mostly it ensures that your storefront is always well lit and looks its best to your customers.
10 No Noise
If you have used fluorescent lights in the past, you know that they can be extra noisy. Depending on the environment, this can be a considerable annoyance, both for your staff and your clients. LED's are ultra-quiet and will never produce anything, not even a low hum.
