When it comes to running a business and managing properties, every cost adds up. One of the highest costs businesses pay is electricity. Consequently, any effort to conserve consumption can go a long way toward reducing overhead costs. Did you know that this could be as easy as just changing out the lighting on your commercial property?
LED light bulbs often get a bad rep because they cost a lot more than regular bulbs. However, the cost has decreased drastically over the years and they can quickly pay for themselves in just a few months.
Engineers have also successfully fixed some of the quirks of LEDs that many consumers disliked, such as harsh lighting and difficulty dimming them. Additionally, LED lights have a much longer lifespan than fluorescent lighting, no matter how often you turn them on and off.
Energy Efficiency and Marketing
LED bulbs are 80% to 90% more efficient than traditional bulbs and generate less heat. The main reason you might want to enjoy energy efficiency is the cost savings. However, increased efficiency also means reduced stress on the electricity grid and the environment to produce the fossil fuels that power commercial buildings.
If your business is interested in committing to sustainability efforts, LED lights are a great start. The new generation of consumers tends to pay close attention to energy efficiency and environmental concerns. Some companies have successfully set themselves apart from the competition on these factors alone.
Ease of Transition
Whether you choose to install LED lighting indoors or outdoors, it is one of the simplest upgrades for your business. Provided you have the right tools you could complete much of the indoor work on your own. For exterior lighting, work with your landscaping company to determine the best options for aesthetics and safety.
