Why You Should Light Your Commercial Building With LED Lights


Previously, the only options you had for lighting premises were incandescent lights, fluorescent bulbs and halogen lighting. Today, another option (LED lights) is available. This article discusses why LED lights would be good for your commercial building.

They Are Durable

LED (Light Emitting Diodes) lights can outlast all existing sources of light. This is because the LED lights have no filament that can burn out. They also do not generate heat that can accelerate their aging. This gives these lights their superior lifespan (up to 100,000 hours of use). This has massive cost saving benefits for you since you will not have to replace them as frequently as you replace the other types of lighting (such as incandescent lighting). You will also incur lower costs to hire personnel to replace worn bulbs.

Energy Efficiency

Any business survives by keeping its operating costs low, and that is exactly what LED lighting will do for your commercial building. LED lights consume less than 30 percent of the energy consumed by other kinds of lighting. This can have a very significant impact on your monthly energy bill, resulting in significant savings over time. Those energy savings will mean more profits for you at the end of the month. 

They Are Adjustable

You can control the intensity of an LED light according to your needs. For instance, you can focus all the light that the bulb is emitting onto something that you wish to draw attention to (such as a portrait). This focused light will make that object very attractive to viewers. Such capabilities make LED lights ideal for commercial premises where works of art are displayed, such as in museums. They can also improve the aesthetic appeal of your commercial building since the lights can be designed to change the appearance of the walls on a daily basis.

They Don't Emit UV Radiation

LED lights also have the advantage of not emitting UV light (which can lead to aging of upholstery, pictures and fabrics). Thus, your furniture may last for much longer if you light the commercial building using LED lamps or bulbs.

The initial cost of procuring LED lights may seem much higher than the cost of buying other lighting alternatives. However, the long-term benefits outweigh any temporary high cost you may incur. Talk to commercial electricians in your area, such as those at Lollo & Allan Electrical, and discuss how you can transform the lighting in your premises so that you enjoy the benefits of LED lighting.
