Commercial LED Lighting.
In all aspects of life, the emphasis is on lowering one’s carbon footprint – going green – and nowhere more so than in today’s modern industries. Whether machine shops or office complexes, the use of energy saving materials and equipment is crucial. If for no other reason than the cost of energy continues to climb, and with it a company’s break-even point.
While modern machinery produces the same output at a fraction of what it cost 25 years ago, so the modern office is also becoming more energy efficient. Office equipment, computers, printers, copiers and the like use less power. If you choose to illuminate your office complex using the latest LED lighting, even greater savings can be made on day to day energy consumption.
Although the initial outlay of an LED lighting installation is greater than standard incandescent lamps or fluorescent tubes; lower maintenance costs, greater lifespan of individual lamps, and a reduction in energy bills soon begins to recoup the extra outlay.
For example, it’s estimated a normal incandescent lamp has an average lifespan of some 1,500 hours. Compare that with an average life of 60,000 hours for an LED lamp, and one begins to see where the savings can be made. In maintenance terms, that means your maintenance engineer would change a single incandescent bulb 40 times, before the LED ran out of steam. How many light bulbs do you have in your offices?
