6 Benefits of Using LED Lighting in your Business

Lights are essential to business and carry an ongoing cost. So why not make a change that’s good for your bottom line and the environment, too?

  • LEDs save money. In addition to energy-efficient cost reduction, LEDs lower maintenance costs by reducing the need to replace bulbs and pay disposal fees. Also, rebates can offset the upfront costs of installation for your business. 
  • LEDs last longer. Lifecycles of LEDs are measured in tens of thousands of hours, which is exponentially longer than other lights. Even after exceeding the rated number of hours, you still get sufficient light from LEDs as they begin to fade.
  • LEDs are better for lighting. LEDs provide great color rendering, sharper focus, and enhanced ambient lighting to improve your facility’s appearance and give customers and employees a better overall experience. 

The Versatility of LED Tube Ready Fixtures

With so many options in commercial LED lighting, it’s hard to know where to begin.  When it comes to selecting fixtures for your commercial building and office workspace, you may want to consider LED tube ready fixtures. 

The Dollars & Cents Advantage 

No matter how big or how small your space is, LED tube ready fixtures will save you money over the long haul.  In general, these fixtures cost less than dedicated, embedded LED fixtures.  In addition, they are incredibly versatile which allows you to easily replace the T8 tubes in the fixtures without the assistance of an electrician.   Of course, with the tubes long life of 50,000 hours, this will not happen very often.   


With LED lighting, the lumen output will remain the same over the life of an LED whether you replace just the tube or an entire fixture.  Consider an office space filled with cubicles and copiers.  Instead of paying an electrician the going “after-hours” rate to maneuver around these obstacles replacing costly fixtures, you can pay your maintenance staff to simply switch out the dimming T8 tubes with new ones.
