When it comes to lighting, you may think it’s as simple as “do they turn on?” But that is not the case - by a long shot. Inefficient lighting products can cost untold amounts of money over time, both in consumed energy and maintenance replacements. Additionally, if you’ve never been exposed to higher quality lighting, you may not know what you (and your tenants, customers, etc) are missing. Here’s why industrial Led Floodlight is superior to other lighting technologies in these three respects
Reduced Energy Consumption: Conventional lighting technologies generally use a gas or other fuel source that mean your energy bill is much higher than it needs to be. LED industrial lighting, by contrast, uses semiconductors to emit light, which basically means that electrical current causes light to be emitted. Industrial LED lighting also beats other technologies on efficiency because the emitted light is directed where you want it. On the other hand, conventional lighting is omnidirectional, which means it emits light 360 degrees. This has two negative consequences: housings or fixtures are required to direct the light where necessary, and a lot of energy is wasted due to unusable light emissions.
Lower maintenance costs: While the upfront costs of completing an LED retrofit may strike you as high, consider that you will save a lot of money on bulb replacement and labor. Some industrial LED lighting bulbs have four to forty times the useful life of conventional lighting solutions, which means big-time savings on replacement costs. Consider all of the bulbs in your facility or parking lot, and what a difference it would make if no bulbs needed to be replaced for, say, 15 years. Additionally, switching from gas-discharge lamps to LED technology will help eliminate waste disposal issues.
Higher quality lighting: Industrial LED lights will typically score better in a head-to-head comparison against most other bulbs when it comes to Color Rendering Index (CRI), Correlated Color Temperature (CCT), and Foot Candles. CRI is a measurement of a light’s ability to reveal the actual color of objects as compared to an ideal light source (natural light). In non-technical terms, CCT generally describes the “glow” given off by a bulb - is it warm (reddish), or cold (bluish white)? Foot candles compare the amount of light coming from a source and the amount of light hitting the desired surface; they’re basically a measure of efficiency. On all three fronts, industrial LED lights perform very well.
