Existing lighting disadvantages?
Your existing lighting system may be providing adequate light for the task they were designed for. However, desired light levels can only be sustained with constant maintenance to make sure the lamps and ballasts are operating properly. All light fixtures dim over time. Some types dim at a much faster rate than others, while some simply burn out on a fairly regular basis. Temperature is another factor that affects the brightness of the lights, their life expectancy and the time it takes for the fixtures to fully illuminate to their maximum brightness.
Advantages of LED light fixtures and bulbs
•Energy Savings - LEDs use much less electricity to create the same amount of light as older fixtures.
•Reduced heat load on HVAC - Traditional fixtures waste much of their energy by giving off wasted heat. LEDs burn cool so your air conditioning and ventilation systems can more easily keep your spaces cool.
•Long life - LED's last between 50,000 and 100,000+ hours before the either burn out or have dimmed to the point of replacement. If you were using your fixtures 12 hours a day, 365 days a year, 100,000 hours of use would be 11+ years from now.
•Low Maintenance - Because the LEDs last so long, there won't be as much need for bulb and ballast changing
•No UV Light - LED fixtures emit no UV light, preserving products and preventing spoilage
•High Color Rendering/High Contrast - Higher visibility makes it easier foir staff to perform tasks, customers to see products and makes the workplace a safer environment.
•Dimmable - LEDs can be dimmed in applications where dimming is needed or beneficial.
HOW YOU CAN SAVE
There are several ways to approach a project. Utilities and government agencies have multiple programs to help pay for LED lighting upgrades, and in some cases financing is available to help pay your portion of the cost of the project, on-bill, and at no interest for 12 or 24 months. There is different criteria required to qualify for each program. We will take the hassle out of it for you.
To get started, we recommend signing up for a free energy audit. We will also need a copy of a recent utility bill to determine the best solution path for your facility.
