By changing your halogen down lights to LED lamps you not only use up to ten times less electricity you also usually get better light. Quality LED’s also last substantially longer, so lamps need to be replaced far less frequently. These factors more than make up for the higher initial cost.
LED replacements for Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) use up to 50% less power and produce far better quality light while also lasting longer. It makes absolute sense to light up your life with more efficient LED technology, and save money by doing so. LED lighting can save up to 85% of the energy used by an incandescent bulb for the same brightness and are now also available in dimmable options and in different colours.
Upgrading standard lighting to Low Energy Lighting in commercial buildings is often the investment which yields the highest ROI and shortest payback period of all the energy saving opportunities available, yet the majority of commercial and industrial buildings still retain old, expensive technology.
The replacement of highly inefficient High Bay lights in warehouses is a particularly attractive opportunity. Linear High Bay LED lights will save 50% of the energy costs, will last up to three times longer than metal halide lamps, saving on both the capital replacement cost and the maintenance costs.
