Reduce Energy Costs With LED Lighting

Posted by Electro-Matic on Nov 17, 2014 6:00:00 AM

When making a lighting investment, you want to ensure you are spending the least amount of money in the long run. Conventional lighting may seem cheaper when looking at the price of one bulb, but it can become quite expensive due to frequent maintenance and need for replacement.

Our LED ROI Calculator helps you determine what your current long term energy and maintenance costs are, outlining you what you could save by switching to LED lighting.

Energy Savings from LED Lighting

When switching to LED lighting, you experience enormous energy savings. LED lighting is extremely efficient and utilizes about half of the energy as conventional lights. The fixtures direct light precisely where it needs to be, reducing light pollution. Motion censored LED lights also minimize energy costs because the lights are only on when they need to be.

Maintenance Savings from LED Lighting

With LED lighting, there are minimal maintenance costs, if any. LED light fixtures are not affected by weather conditions such as, extreme cold, wind, rain, snow or sea-salt conditions. The fixtures are also very durable, handling high shock and vibrations. LED lighting fixtures are breakage resistance, giving them a long lifetime.

Replacement Savings from LED Lighting

LEDs have the ability to last more than 70,000 hours. With conventional lighting, fixtures will need to be replaced 3 times in the same time one LED fixture needs to be replaced. With LED’s long lifetime and durability, they won’t need to be replaced as often, saving you money.

Environmental Sustainability

LED lighting is also a lot safer for the environment than conventional lighting. Not only does LED exert less energy, there is also no mercury or UV rays coming from the bulbs. This emits fewer chemicals and limits light pollution. Motion censor capabilities also ensure no energy is wasted.

LED lighting offers many advantages and savings compared to conventional lighting. Making the switch saves you money on energy, maintenance, and replacement costs. An added benefit to LED lights is that they are environmentally friendly.
