LED lighting is becoming increasingly popular, representing 10% of commercial and 4% of industrial lighting sources in 2015. This number is expected to grow each year.
There are several key differences between LED lights and incandescent or fluorescent bulbs. These differences make using LED lighting a great option for your commercial and industrial lighting needs.
We’re here to tell you 4 reasons why using recessed LED lighting could be a game changer for your business.
Why You Should Consider Recessed LED Lighting
1. Lower Your Energy Bills
One of the most notable features of LED lighting is energy efficiency. Traditional incandescent, halogen, and fluorescent bulbs are inefficient and burn most of the energy they consume as heat.
LED bulbs, however, are much more efficient and use up to 50% less electricity than traditional bulbs. They also produce much less heat than other types of bulbs which can lower your cooling costs.
Additional energy savings are available using automatic controls that maximize the efficiency of the LED lighting. These controls can sense the lighting conditions of the room and decrease light output when daylight is abundant and reducing the need for interior illumination.
All of this means LED lighting solutions can save you a lot of money on your electric bills.
2. Lower Maintenance Costs
Another source of cost savings comes from the longer lifespan of LED bulbs. LED light bulbs can last over 50,000 operating hours. This means they last 2-4 times longer than other light bulbs commonly used in commercial and industrial settings.
Having to change LED bulbs less often will save you money both on labor costs involved with replacing bulbs as well as the cost of having to buy new bulbs.
3. Make Your Space Look Bigger
Recessed LED lighting will make any room look larger and more open.
One reason for this is because recessed lights are concealed in the ceiling, they do not interrupt the visual space of the ceiling. Not having a fixture hanging down from the ceiling will create the feeling of a taller ceiling and larger room.
Another way recessed lighting makes a room look bigger is through wall washing. This effect involves reflecting light on the wall to wash the wall in overlapping ambient light creating a feeling of more space.
One of the key benefits of recessed LED lighting is the flexibility this lighting option provides. While recessed LEDs are great at providing ambient lighting, they can also be used to spotlight specific areas you want to highlight such as wall displays.
Further, some LED lights can change colors which gives you the option to change the mood or highlight specific areas to meet your needs.
