How Can LEDs Save You Money?
Have you considered making the switch to LED lights, but aren't sure about upfront costs vs. potential benefits? Look no further, as Pacific Light & Energy is happy to lay out how an LED retrofit represents an economic and efficient way to upgrade your lights in order to save on energy usage and costs.
Here are four methods that LED lighting solutions will save you time and money in the long-term:
1. Increased Efficiency
LED lamps on average use 50% less electricity when compared to traditional incandescent, halogen, or fluorescent light fixtures. Over the course of time, this adds up to a notable cost-saving measure through the decreased energy usage in your facility. LEDs also boast the ability to utilize directional lighting, which allows you to aim light in a particular direction and eliminates the need for superfluous lighting fixtures.
2. Increased Lifespan
One of the greatest and most apparent financial benefits of capitalizing on LED lighting technology is the increased lifespan these fixtures maintain over traditional lighting technologies. This eliminates the need for frequent bulb replacements or fixture repairs and thus dramatically cuts down on maintenance costs. For instance, and LED light has a life expectancy between 30,000 - 100,000 hours, whereas a fluorescent bulb stands between 8,000 - 10,000 hours. LED lighting also eliminates any worry surrounding sudden burnout or failure, which is a problem that you must contend with when using traditional lighting solutions.
3. Durability and Outdoor Applications
Another factor that distinguishes LEDs over traditional lighting technologies is their durability and capability to endure potentially harsh conditions corresponding to outdoor lighting applications. For instance, LEDs are resistant to external impact, vibration, and even electrical shock, and this added durability equates to peace of mind without having to worry about added maintenance or repairs costs.
4. Ability to Withstand Rapid Cycling
Traditional lighting solutions are impacted by continuous switching on and off, and this decreases their life expectancy and correspondingly costs more money. Because they aren't affected by rapid cycling, LEDs are well suited for use with daylight sensors or light displays that flash. All of these applications for LEDs still boast the increased lifespan and decreased maintenance costs that all add up towards saving you money and time.
