The Benefits of LED Lights in the Workplace
Why LED lights? Reduce the amount your business spends on energy by switching from old fluorescent, halogen, high-pressure sodium, and incandescent lighting to LED fittings and lamps. Here are some of the reasons that LEDs are a great option in the workplace!
Average LED lights last around 50,000 hours, whereas a 15-watt fluorescent bulb may only last around 8,500 hours – so the average LED can last around 5 times longer than a normal bulb. This results in lower maintenance costs in both labour and replacement parts. This especially applies when we integrate smart sensors throughout the site, meaning that the lights will only be on when needed.
LEDs emit light in a specific direction which reduces the need for reflectors and diffusers that can trap light, as well as emitting very little heat, which helps to make them more efficient in saving energy – another contribution towards the long lifespan of the LEDs. Overall, LEDs use around 75% less energy than normal bulbs. The lesser heat emission also makes them safer than other lighting systems, typically.
Research has shown that LEDs can lead to an increase in productivity and even have a positive effect on health! The fact that the light emitted from LEDs is more similar to daylight means that there is a measurable increase in your ability to concentrate, and can contribute to both better mood and lower frustration.
LEDs can provide a huge range of options when it comes to lighting, brilliant for both industrial and commercial use. From a range of sizes, colour options and brightness settings, they can be ideal for any room to suit your preferences.
