It's no secret that energy costs always tend to rise, especially when daylight is short and it's cold out. Businesses and organizations are looking for ways to reduce their expenses. LED lights offer a solution to increasing electricity prices. Let's look at why.
LED Lights are Energy Efficient
LED lights use light-emitting diode (LED) technology to emit powerful light that uses very little electricity. LED lights use about 90% less electricity than traditional light bulbs, saving you a bundle
in electricity costs yearly. LED lights also produce less heat than traditional lights, which helps keep cooling costs low as well.
Savings Over Time
LEDs have a much longer life expectancy than traditional lights. LED lights will last up to 50 times longer than regular incandescent bulbs and around 8 times longer than fluorescent bulbs. Not only does this mean less money spent on replacement bulbs, but LED lights will also require far less maintenance than other lighting fixtures, so you won't have to hire someone as often to change the bulbs if they are in hard-to-reach places.
Tax Savings with LED Lighting
In 2005, the Energy Policy Act (EPAct) was passed by Congress. It took effect on January 1, 2006, and is designed to incentivize businesses that make energy-efficient improvements to their properties. Part of this legislation, Section 179D, grants tax deductions to businesses that switch to LED lighting. This means businesses can simultaneously reduce their energy costs and be eligible for a tax deduction. This tax deduction can offset the cost of purchasing and installing LED lighting, making it an even more appealing choice.
LED Lights for Large Buildings
For large buildings such as schools and businesses, the cost savings of switching to LED lighting can be even more significant. These buildings often have hundreds or even thousands of light fixtures, which means they consume a significant amount of energy.
Switching to LED lighting in large buildings requires a bit of planning and preparation to ensure a successful transition. First, it is important to assess the current lighting system and make sure the
LED bulbs you choose are compatible with your current fixtures and wiring.
Second, the desired level of brightness and color temperature must be determined. LED bulbs come in various wattages, lumens, and color temperatures. Selecting the right combination of these factors will ensure that the lighting meets the desired requirements and provides an optimal visual experience.
Finally, LED bulbs must be installed properly and securely. Depending on the bulb type and fixture, this process may involve using special tools or custom-made connectors. Working with a professional lighting company is important to ensure the installation is done correctly and safely.
