12 Feb Why Choose LED Lighting for Your Business?
Here at JLM Electrical, we understand that business can sometimes be tough –and when it comes to running costs, a little saving here and there can make all the difference.
So what if we told you that by making one simple change – and one that won’t alter the way in which you operate – you’ll save pounds? We bet you’re eager to know what we’re referring to, and we can tell you it’s a simple, three-letter word: LED.
In short, installing LED lighting will fast prove one of the best things you’ve done for your business. Thousands of business owners just like yourself are already saving a lot of money by making the switch to an LED lighting system and we’re here to give you all the details.
For a start, on average LEDs last for more than five years of constant operation. They also consume around 80% less energy than standard incandescent bulbs and contain no mercury. If you want more figures, here’s one: LEDs emit only 5% of their energy as heat. Not only do they last longer, but they use less electricity too, which means you’re trimming down your overhead costs in one simple move.
Once your LED lighting is installed, you won’t have to give changing a light bulb a second thought. Why? Offering up to 10 hours’ usage per day, LED lights like the ones we install regularly here at JLM Electrical, have an average lifespan of 10 years – that’s a lot of time spent in business! It’s also worth knowing that even after 50,000 hours of use, LED lights will only lose a certain proportion of their luminance.
We know that as a business owner, you’re probably also aware of the responsibility to make good, honest choices, too. So you’ll be pleased to discover that LEDs aren’t harmful to humans, due to their lack of mercury, so you can be sure there’ll be no deadly compounds in the air as your workforce goes about its work. Lights like this also don’t emit UV or IR light, both detrimental to a person’s health.
Another benefit that comes with choosing LED lighting for your business is the design element. LED lighting looks great; it’s available in a wide range of colour temperatures that turn on without an often-frustrating flickering you get with so many other lighting choices.
What’s more, you’ll be able to easily integrate your choice of LED lighting with networked systems for greater operation in the workplace. Light can be controlled via remote control systems or software applications – ideal if you own a trendy gym or studio.
Installation is generally pretty quick, too, which means your business will be back up and running as soon as possible.
