There are endless ways to save money at your facility. From reducing water waste to replacing old equipment with energy-efficient options, you can effectively shave off hundreds of dollars on your power bill annually. One such easy fix is replacing your current lighting fixtures with LED bulbs.
LED bulbs save energy because they require only a portion of the electricity that an incandescent bulb needs. They also last longer than other types of bulbs, meaning you will have to replace LEDs less often. They are an easy replacement for most lighting fixtures.
LEDs are often chosen for their energy-efficiency; however, there are other reasons to make the switch at your facility today:
LEDs are cooler. Incandescent light bulbs are less energy efficient, and therefore heat up much more than LED bulbs. You may not consider the temperature of your light bulb to be important, but the difference is drastic. LED bulbs reach an average temperature of 107° Fahrenheit. Incandescent bulbs, on the other hand, can get as hot as 327 degrees!
LEDs will keep pests out of your facility. Insects are attracted to the ultraviolet light emitted from incandescent lights. While LEDs emit a small amount of UV light, it’s much less than a regular light bulb. This minor change can reduce the number of pests within your facility, which lends to a cleaner and healthier work environment.
LEDs improve productivity. Offices and facilities with LED light help create a more productive work environment. Why? Unlike incandescent bulbs which produce white light, LEDs produce light with a multitude of colors that resembles natural light. This can make a major impact in tenants’ and employees’ comfort inside the facility, and therefore their productivity.
