Why You Should Make The Switch To LED
Whether it’s for residential or commercial environments, LED is the superior choice when it comes to energy eﬃciency with savings of up to 80% in lighting costs. LED is a much safer, better quality lighting technology that can last up to 50,000 hours. For business owners in commercial, industrial and retail environments, the better quality of light proves to significantly increase employee productivity and wellbeing. There’s never been a better time, to switch to LED, our future depends on it.
They are Energy Efficient
Australia has some pretty serious targets to meet, to reduce the impact of our carbon (greenhouse gas emissions) and ecological (impact on the planet) footprint. As a result of pollution in the environment, the damage is done, resulting in what we now know as Climate Change.
Becoming energy efficient can help lessen the severity of environmental damage in the future—and we all have a role in building a sustainable energy system for the next generation. Energy efficiency simply means achieving more with less. Becoming an energy efficient business can lower your running costs and boost profits, improve productivity and employee wellbeing.
With power bills on the rise, finding effective ways to ensure your business survives and thrives, is key. With the phase out of inefficient products, such as lighting and new legislation to meet minimum energy performance standards, there has never been a better time to be energetic about workplace energy. Whether you have 2 or 100 employees, becoming energy efficient is a good business decision that can result in energy savings of up to 80%.
They are Safe
LEDs are a much safer form of lighting compared to traditional styles. LED lamps run much cooler and can be less of a hazard. Halogen and incandescent globes can get extremely hot and can even explode in the wrong circumstances. LEDs are also NOT made out of glass materials and don’t over heat. When lamps run cooler they minimise the deterioration to light fittings, shades and decoration which can occur with hot lamps – so your light fittings will last longer.
Its Quality Lighting Technology
LED is an abbreviation for ‘light-emitting diode’, a semiconductor device that converts electricity into light. In the simplest terms, a light-emitting diode is a semiconductor device that emits light when an electric current is passed through it. Light is produced when the particles that carry the current (known as electrons and holes) combine together within the semiconductor material. LEDs are super energy efficient, using approximately 85% less energy than halogen or incandescent lighting – meaning significant savings on your power bills.
There is no delay when you turn an LED on. LED lamps switch ON and OFF instantly and are flicker free with no warm up time unlike fluorescent and HID lighting.
LEDs are mercury free unlike CFL bulbs which benefits the environment! Over the lifetime of an LED product, less electricity and replacement products are used; saving even more energy in transportation, packaging and maintenance when compared to conventional lamps. All this adds up to lower CO2 emissions, a win-win for you and the environment. As LED lamps are very efficient, they are the perfect product to compliment renewable energy sources such as solar panels or wind power.
