You might have heard about or used LED lights at one point or another, but do you know exactly what LEDs are all about?
LEDs are light-emitting diodes which can improve your energy efficiency levels by up to 90%. They are used across a range of lighting applications including factories and warehouses, carparks, office buildings, sports facilities, parks, retail stores and roadways.
More and more businesses are discovering the benefits of LED lighting, including LED retrofits for their existing facilities. In addition to the immense benefits of power (watts) saved per unit of light generated (lumens), reduced greenhouse gas emissions from power plants and lower electric bills, LEDs have:
Exceptional colour rendering
Ever wondered how merchandise displays, outdoor walkways or football fields are illuminated in a way that brings out an object’s colours where it matters most? These are features of LED lighting technology. LEDs have excellent colour rendering, with high R9 levels, and exceptional aim; the result - improved aesthetics and minimal energy use.
A longer lifespan is perhaps one of the greatest advantages of using LED lights. In fact, LED lights have no trouble functioning efficiently for 50,000 hours. This means that they last years longer than incandescent and compact fluorescent lights.
Enhanced compatibility features
LED lights can be easily integrated with a myriad of advanced dimming and control options. Ranging from simple switching, on/off time schedules, occupancy sensing and daylight harvesting, these control options can help to greatly reduce total energy consumption.
Here are more reasons why business owners are choosing various LED lighting applications:
- Increased reliability and less maintenance
- Free from toxic substances
- No UV emissions
- Do not attract insects
