6 Benefits of Using LED Lights for Business

<?php the_title(); ?>

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?

As a manufacturer of commercial and industrial lighting products, we understand the benefits of LEDs, particularly for a business with extensive lighting needs.

This article outlines six main benefits of LED lights for business and provides a case study where a busy office building significantly increased their bottom line after replacing fluorescent lights with LEDs.

Benefits

1. LED lights 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.

2. LED lights last longer.
Life Cycles 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.

3. 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.

4. LEDs provide a better work environment.
LED lighting is glare-free and less tiring on your eyes. Because of this, business owners will find it improves and promotes workplace productivity which increases employee satisfaction. Also, unlike legacy lighting such as mercury filled fluorescent tubes, LED lights do not shatter, improving safety in the workplace.

5. LEDs are easy to upgrade.
Let Straits show you how these shatterproof and mercury-free solutions are the best choices for your business.

6. LEDs are energy efficient.
By reducing CO2 emissions and efficiently converting electricity into light, LEDs are better for the environment and can cut energy consumption by upwards of 70 percent.
