Why Should I Use LED Lighting in My Facility or Building?
Energy Efficient: LED lighting is up to 80% more efficient than traditional lighting which can amount to significant savings on your power bill.
Less Maintenance: LED lighting has a much longer rated life than traditional lighting reducing costs for replacement bulbs, maintenance and possibly rented equipment to change it.
Instant on: LED’s will instantly operate at full brightness every time they are turned on. HID lamps can take up to 15-20 minutes to come back on after being shut off due to the fact they have to cool down (which tells you how much heat they generate).
Generates less heat: 80% of the energy is used to generate light instead of generating heat which reduces air conditioning energy consumption as well. (HID and incandescents use about 20% of the energy to generate light and 80% creating heat).
Silent: No humming or buzzing sound as HID lighting can give off as they approach the end of their life.
No flickering: LED will remain steadily illuminated unlike fluorescent or HID which can flicker. Flickering can cause headaches and eye strain.
Lighting quality is much better than Incandescent or HID: Quality light is very important when trying to enhance the color or brightness of what you are illuminating such as a car dealership, furniture store, or even hair salon where accurate color rendering is important.
LED lamps are mercury free and contain no toxic gases.
No Infrared or UV Radiation: LED’s do not produce infrared or ultraviolet light making them especially ideal for illuminating items susceptible to fading or deterioration due to UV rays such as in museums, clothing stores, or art galleries.
Durable: LED lamps are not as susceptible to breakage as their incandescent or HID counterparts. Special shatterproofing is generally not needed since the lamps are not made of glass.
No catastrophic failure: HID lamps can literally explode in the fixtures at any time. LED will not.
