If you own a business, one of your top priorities is to always make sure your employees and customers/clients are comfortable in the environment you are providing them with. As a business owner, it might be difficult finding balance between making sure everyone is comfortable in your business’ space as well as maintaining the daily and monthly expenses. One of your biggest expenses each month is probably your electricity bill due to how much light you’re using each day in your business.
Lighting is just as essential in a commercial space as it is in a residential space, and we’re here today to tell you how beneficial upgrading to LED lighting for your business can be. If you’ve been noticing abnormally high electricity bills lately from your business and think lighting usage might have something to do with it, keep on reading to learn about the benefits of adding LED lights to your business.
While LED lights are a bit more expensive upfront, they actually end up saving you money in the long run. They are much more energy efficient than traditional light bulbs and do not waste nearly as much energy as incandescent lights. Additionally, you don’t need to replace LED lights the way you would need to replace traditional bulbs, meaning the cost to maintain your LEDs is essentially nothing!
Like we mentioned above, LED lights require little to no maintenance throughout their lifespan, whereas regular light bulbs need to be replaced every so often. Overall, LED lights have a lifespan of up to 50,000 hours, which is about 50 times longer than traditional incandescent lights. Even once their lifespan begins to fade, LED lights are still able to produce a sufficient amount of light.
If you haven’t already joined the energy efficient party, now is the time to do so! Businesses are always looking for more ways to become more energy efficient, for both the environment and the sake of their own bills, and adding LED lights to your business is a great way to start. Overall, LED lights emit less CO2 and require less wattage than traditional lights, making them better for the environment.
Productive Work Environment
You might not have known this, but employee performance has a lot to do with lighting! Of course, no one can work in the dark, but poor sources of lighting can cause a less productive work environment. Poor and insufficient lighting can cause glares, which can negatively affect employees who use computers or screens all day long. Since LED lights are glare-free, you won’t have to worry about this being an issue with your employees. LED lights are also visibly more accurate and create a higher quality of light, which can help employees’ performance levels and prevent mistakes from happening in the workplace.
Due to their low voltage, LED lights are safe to touch, opposite to traditional light bulbs that tend to get very hot. This means LED lights are also safer to install. Additionally, since they don’t emit heat, they are safer to install in areas such as office spaces, sports facilities, and the outdoors. They are also durable in inclement weather.
