Do more, save more.

If you’re looking for a solution to reduce your energy bills a simple answer would be to look at your existing lighting – is it energy efficient?

Fluorescent, incandescent and halogen lamps all have incredibly high energy consumption all whilst producing low quality lighting.

Here are 6 reasons why you should consider switching to LED to help with your energy consumption and reduce the hole in your pocket…

1. You’ll Save Money

LED lighting provides a huge financial advantage over incandescent, fluorescent, and halogen lighting by being far more energy efficient, and because LEDs last longer, you’ll lower maintenance costs and disposal fees.

2. They Last Longer

LEDs outclass the competition when it comes to durability. The run-of-the-mill incandescent bulb lasts roughly 1,000 hours. A fluorescent bulb gives us a bit more run-time at 8,000 hours, which is no where near an LED light which can last as long as 60,000 hours.

3. They’re More Durable

Because an LED light lacks a filament or a glass enclosure, they’re more resistant to vibrations or other heavy impacts, unlike other bulbs which often can’t stand minor bumps or drops.

4.They Help the Environment

LED’s have high-efficiency as only 5% or less of its energy is wasted. Efficient energy reduces our carbon footprint and an LED’s long-life helps towards slightly less landfill waste. To top it all off, LEDs are mercury free and contain no hazardous materials.

5. They Provide Higher-Quality Lighting

Going from an incandescent to a high-quality LED light bulb provides an immediately noticeable difference. Enhanced ambient lighting can give you a more polished, professional appearance instantly.

6.They Can Improve Workplace Performance

Studies show that poor lighting reduces employee motivation. In addition, insufficient or improper lighting can create glares or reflections, making it harder to concentrate on a task and get comfortable. Poor lighting can also create workplace incidents, due to lack of illumination. With LED Lighting, you don’t have to worry about those factors and can create the perfect ambience for a more happy and focused work force.
