LED Lighting: What's the Big Deal?

As a business owner, you are probably looking for the most economical way to light your business.  LED lighting seems to be all the rage these days, but what benefits does it truly have to offer?  We’ve compiled some of the most important benefits for you below:

  • Money-saving: LED lighting is highly energy-efficient, saving up to an impressive 70% in electric costs over traditional lighting. The more traditional bubs you replace with LED bulbs, the lower your electric bill will be, making LED lighting an excellent choice in the long run.
  • Long lifespan: LED lighting, on average, lasts two to four times longer than other traditional lighting sources.  An LED bulb can last anywhere from six to twelve years, which is impressive!  They cost more than conventional bulbs up front, but their ability to last for a long time makes up for it.
  • Environmentally friendly: Today, eco-friendly products are important to consumers, and LED lighting fits that bill.  Unlike fluorescent bulbs, LED lighting reduces energy consumption and can be disposed of easily without special handling. In addition, their longevity allows fewer materials to be used, saving landfill space and appealing to consumers.
  • Heat free: LED lighting does not emit heat, so the bulbs are never hot to the touch like traditional or fluorescent bulbs, making them easy to swap or replace.  This makes LED lighting less of a safety hazard as well.
