These are some of the ways an LED upgrade can benefit you.
LED lights live 5 – 25 times longer than standard lighting, lasting an average of 50,000 – 130,000 hours per bulb.
Reduces Maintenance Costs
Since LED lights live for years on end without requiring any care, their maintenance costs are virtually nothing. An LED upgrade removes the need to constantly replace, restock, or maintain bulbs, resulting in significantly less time and money spent on lighting maintenance .
To produce light (brightness, measured in lumens), energy (electricity, measured in watts) is needed. A bulb is efficient when it can create more lumens out of less watts – i.e. more light out of less energy.
Compared to traditional bulbs, LED bulbs use less than half the electricity to produce the same amount of brightness. This high efficiency translates into higher savings.
Traditional lights are often created using toxic materials like mercury that can leak into the air if broken. This makes them really hard to dispose of without harming the environment. The EPA, for example, proposes a tedious 11-step process for cleaning up broken fluorescent bulbs, but even then dangerous mercury still leaks into the air. On the contrary, LED lights are created using non-toxic materials and are designed to be easily recyclable. Their long lives also ensure that disposal won’t be a frequent necessity, further helping reduce your carbon footprint.
With many lighting manufacturers now focusing exclusively on LED, there is a variety of decorative designs available for all applications. Integrated LED fixtures are becoming especially popular, where LED lighting is integrated directly into a modern fixture without the need for a bulb. There are also thousands of individual bulb options in a range of styles and colors to choose from. From basement lighting to a hotel lobby chandelier, LED has got that
facelift your property is looking for.
No Heat or UV Emission
Aside from posing health risks, UV radiation attracts insects and is known for color degradation. Since LED lights have virtually no UV output, they are safer, attract less insects, and don’t pose risks to colored surfaces. LED lights also don’t heat up or emit heat. These characteristics make LED lights ideal for places sensitive to heat or insects, like food-service establishments, as well as for places with UV-sensitive objects, like art museums.
Produces Bright Light
LED lights brighten immediately after turning on. And unlike standard bulbs that get dimmer with age and painstakingly ‘burn out’, LED bulbs forever retain their initial brightness.
Return On Investment
An LED upgrade will slash your electricity bill by a lot – at least 50%, sometimes more. We Green Energy’s track record has proven to live up to this potential, as every upgrade we have completed has achieved a minimum 50% energy reduction, in some cases even greater.
An LED upgrade is an investment that starts paying dividends immediately. The energy and maintenance savings add up fast, and as a result, the ROI on an LED upgrade can take as little as 6 months to realize. After that, your savings are straight profit.
More light for your energy. More lumens for your watts. More bang for your buck.
