Energy Savings Improve Your Bottom Line
Any time a light is on, you're using expensive electricity. Day after day, the benefits of more efficient lighting add up to significant annual savings. Our lighting consultants can conduct a prompt and professional lighting audit of your facility to determine your current usage and opportunities for efficiency savings.
Gaining energy efficiency means more than just swapping out lower-wattage lamps. We take the time to learn how you use your facility, making sure our recommendations reflect your unique situation. We provide a detailed energy assessment, documenting the specific return on investment you can achieve with any proposed installation. We take into consideration things such as:
There are many significant benefits of LED lighting in various applications. The life of a high-power white LED is projected to be from 35,000 to 100,000 hours, compared to 750 to 2,000 hours for an incandescent lamp; 8,000 to 10,000 hours for a compact fluorescent; 15,000 to 24,000 hours for high-intensity discharge; and 24,000 to 60,000 or more hours for a linear fluorescent lamp.
LED and linear fluorescent lamps come on instantly and work well with energy-saving controls. In comparison, compact fluorescent and high-intensity discharge lamps need time to warm up and come to full brightness. LED lamps are also more resistant to breakage.
Reduced Power Consumption
Conventional light lamps waste most of their energy as heat. For example, an incandescent lamp gives off 90% of its electrical energy as heat, while a compact fluorescent lamp wastes 80% as heat. A properly designed LED circuit, however, loses only 20% of its energy as heat. LED and fluorescent technologies continue the quest for greater light output using less electricity.
Size and Efficiency
The small size and low profile of LEDs allow them to be used in spaces that are too small for other light lamps. LED lamps give off light in a specific direction, making them more efficient than incandescent and fluorescent lamps, which waste energy by emitting light in all directions.
