6 Reasons to Install LED Lighting Today
Light-Emitting Diode (LED) Lighting is a simple way to introduce sustainability to your corporate office. At Alliance Construction Specialties (ACS) we are always working to implement sustainable technologies into our construction. By installing LED bulbs you are not only helping the environment but you are lowering your energy costs, maintenance costs, and more.
Overall, LEDs use small amounts of energy. By installing LEDs in your corporate office you can reduce the amount of energy used by lighting by 60-80%, sometimes more depending on the type of LED installed.
The average lifespan of a LED bulb is 50,000 to 100,000 operating hours. That’s 40 times as long as your average incandescent bulb. By installing LEDs you are saving money by lowering maintenance costs and reducing the amount of bulbs you buy a year.
Color Rendering Index (CRI)
LEDs usually have good CRI ratings. CRI is the measurement of how well a light can depict the actual color of an object compared to natural light. This is ideal in an office setting where colors matter when working on projects and proposals.
Although specific hardware is required to dim LED bulbs, LED lights are able to function at any value of their power. When they are dimmed they are using even less power and their lifespan is increased.
If you are considering changing out the lighting in your parking lots or on the outside of your building, LEDs should be considered. LEDs can function on very low voltages as well as in extreme temperatures.
Most traditional bulbs use mercury or other substances that requires special handling. This is difficult when a bulb dies out and needs to be replaced. LEDs do not contain any of these substances.
