There have been many revolutionary practices that have taken place within the technology industry over the past few years, with one of the more notable being the switch to LED lighting. This type of superior lighting has transformed the way both retail and commercial companies are able to conduct business, and more importantly, it has provided them with a way to be environmentally friendly. When compared to their incandescent counterparts, LED lamps have the potential to reduce energy usage by more than 80%.
There are a few roadblocks associated with LED lamps, including the fact that initial expenses can be quite costly. Additionally, in retail stores, many store owners are unaware of how to best position the lamps so that optimal retail presentation is achieved. Furthermore, the transitioning process to this type of lighting is sometimes uncertain.
Still, there are solutions to each of the roadblocks presented by LED lamps. It’s thanks to these solutions that businesses can enjoy the four following benefits of commercial LED lighting.
1) They Last Longer
First and foremost, LED lamps last longer than incandescent lighting. This means maintenance workers don’t have to spend as much time changing out lamps. Instead, they can focus on core maintenance tasks, such as making sure the floors are clean and free of debris, which enhances customer experience.
2) Tax Incentives are a Plus
Depending on where your business is located, there is likely an assortment of federal and state tax incentives that you can take advantage of when going green and switching to LED lighting.
3) Fewer Carbon Dioxide Emissions
It’s also with LED energy-efficient commercial lighting that fewer carbon dioxide emissions are taken in. In turn, LED lamps can light up large retail stores for practically nothing. Take for example Buckingham Palace, which now uses LED lighting. Illuminating this structure uses less energy than what it takes to make a cup of tea, and it’s all because of fewer carbon dioxide emissions and lowered energy consumption.
4) It’s an Excellent Way to Boost Professionalism
When customers walk into your building or store, they should be ‘wowed’. If your ceiling and lighting fixtures are dotted with incandescent lamps that have burnt out, this is sure to leave a bad impression because it makes your company look as if it can’t afford good lighting. But with commercial LED lighting, your business will appear much more professional because the lamps distribute the light in a more even manner.
