Why upgrading to Led lighting is a good idea

Why upgrading to Led lighting is a good idea

There are many benefits of upgrading to LED, here are a list of the most important ones -

Financial Reward
Buildings today that have not upgraded to energy reducing lighting roughly spend on average 30-40% of their electrical bill in this area. However if you use 50w bulb and reduce to 5w, you can reduce energy consumption by 90% and your electrical expense will reduce significantly.

Maintenance Free
If you manage a building which has a maintenance contract, you can reduce your bills because the LED lamps carry such a long shelf life, the good side about this is that they are also maintenance free, and you won’t need to worry about paying a contractor to replace the bulbs on a regular basis.

Return on Investment
With such large reduction in energy bills, some lighting upgrades can facilitate a return on investment in little as 8 months in some circumstances. With this length of time, it can be calculated for each project prior to deciding on the options for the upgrade.

Improved light quality
In any LED lighting upgrade, optimal light quality should be at the forefront of any installation. Over time, different wattage and style bulbs can be used in a standard light fitting, when upgrading be sure to use a contractor who will inform you about the appropriate light (LUX) levels required for optimal light quality as well as cover any government regulations in workplaces, residential blocks or homes.

It’s good for the environment
When taking a step back from all the financial benefits of upgrading to LED, just remember that you are also making a genuinely positive impact to the environment by consuming less energy.

You can have a pilot installation
If you have many fittings in your building, but don’t want to commit to a full installation until you know that it may look and feel right, you can always upgrade a small portion of the building as a pilot project, and decide if you want to finish it or not.
