LED Conversion Services
While it may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think about upgrading your commercial facility, converting to LED lighting is one of the easiest ways to modernize a space as well as save time and energy.
Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology is different from incandescent or fluorescent bulb lighting in many ways, one being that they don’t have to “warm up” when first used. LED lights allow you to light a big space with fewer bulb hookups. While an incandescent or fluorescent bulb may light a small room, you can’t use one bulb for big spaces. LED bulbs are smaller than traditional bulbs and can light more space.
LED Lighting for Parking Lots
Parking lot lighting is one of the most important safety features for a commercial business. Making sure your customers are safe will prevent accidents and crime. Good parking lot lighting will also give your customers and employees an added sense of security when they come to your business after the sun goes down.
Converting to LED should be the first thing to consider when deciding to upgrade your business. Beyond increased safety, LED lighting significantly reduces energy and maintenance costs associated with keeping a parking lot lit all night. Our team can also improve the efficiency of the lighting by identifying the best placement for poles and other outdoor lighting structures.
The Benefits of Converting to LED Lighting
Efficiency and Savings
LED lights use very little power compared to other bulbs – around 50% less electricity. This may not make a huge difference in a residential setting, but when it comes to commercial LED lighting where hundreds of lights are on for long amounts of time, the savings really add up.
Lights tend to stay on for long amounts of time in commercial settings, sometimes continuously. LED lights, when continuously turned on, can last up to six years while incandescent and fluorescent bulbs would only last about four years. When turned off for even small amounts of time, LED lifespan can be as much as 10 times longer.
When it comes to lights and being safe, what could go wrong? Heat. If you’ve ever accidentally touched a light bulb when it’s on, you know what we’re talking about. LED lights don’t emit forward heat. Instead, the heat is managed through the bulb itself, not outward.
