Why Your Business Should Use LED Lighting

Sustainability is becoming an increasingly prevalent focus among business owners. There are many small steps you can take throughout your premises to increase sustainability and also simplify your day-to-day operations, and one of these is making the switch from incandescent to LED lighting.

Here are just a few examples of the benefits of using LED lights at your Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex commercial property:

  • Longer lasting: LED bulbs last significantly longer than standard incandescent light bulbs. You can expect to get at least a good five years out of them before they need to be replaced. This means over time you save a good deal of money by not having to replace bulbs as frequently, even though LEDs cost a fair amount more upfront. This also helps you save time around your property, as you won’t have to devote as much maintenance time to checking and changing light bulbs. Once they’ve been installed, you can basically forget about them for a while, knowing you have at least several years before you even need to think about changing the bulb again.
  • Versatility: There are a lot of great design options you can create by using LED lights. They can be used to create a wide range of colors, and can also be programmed to create different designs at different times. You might only want standard white lighting, but it’s nice to have options and a greater level of control over lighting should you wish to use it.
  • Environmentally friendly: As we previously mentioned, LED bulbs are a great, simple step to take to create more sustainability in your building. LEDs use approximately 80 percent less energy than incandescent bulbs (which also happens to be another way you can save money over time with their use). They also do not contain any mercury, unlike incandescent bulbs, which reduces their environmental impact.
  • Safety: We already mentioned the lack of mercury in these bulbs. Not only does that reduce the environmental impact associated with their usage, but it also cuts down on the potential safety threats to humans around them. LEDs produce much less heat than incandescent bulbs, so you’re much less likely to burn yourself if you need to change the bulbs or accidentally touch them. Finally, LED bulbs do not emit any infrared or ultraviolet lights, both of which can potentially cause some damage over long periods of exposure.
  • No flickering: One of the most annoying things about incandescent bulbs is that they will eventually start to flicker as they get toward the end of their usable life. LED lights will simply fade out as they start to wear out. This eliminates what can be a major nuisance on your premises.
  • Easy installation: LED lighting can be installed quickly and easily, which cuts down on the amount of maintenance time expended on the task.
