LED lighting has quickly become the preferred lighting choice in society today due to its affordability, efficiency and overall energy savings. Home and business owners alike are making the change and upgrading their old fluorescent and incandescent lights to new LED fixtures.
Studies have shown LED lights are 80% more efficient with only 5% of their energy wasted as heat. In simple terms, these lights are not hot to the touch which in the long run, extends the life of the lamp as the extreme heat isn’t constantly deteriorating the product making it last much longer than the typical fluorescent lamps. The energy saved with LED lighting ultimately reduces greenhouse gas emissions and other kinds of pollution.
Upgrading to LED lighting in your home is simple and worry free. With up to 50,000 hours of usage per fixture, homeowners can go about their daily lives without having to replace lamps throughout their home as these fixtures are maintenance free for 7-10 years, sometimes longer. LED lamps are available in all shapes and sizes making it very easy to transition the lighting in one’s home, improving the quality and longevity of the lighting throughout the home.
Here are just a few of the many benefits of using LED lighting:
- Long Life Span
- Low Radiated Heat
- Directional Lighting
- High Intensity
- High Brightness
- Energy Efficient
Due to the same appealing qualities in people’s homes, LED Lighting has rapidly made a huge impact in businesses. While repairing existing fixtures can get pricy, retrofitting the existing fixture allows the customer the opportunity to keep the original housing of the fixture while removing the insides and upgrading them with LED retrofit kits. For businesses, the initial cost of updating to LED lights can be quickly recovered, sometimes with less than a year ROI, through energy savings, decrease in maintenance costs and other incentives available.
