No matter your business, investing in better lighting is a great move. Picking the correct type, however, can seem like a daunting task. A commercial electrician can help alleviate some of that stress with a quick tutorial on what to look out for.
There are three main lighting fixtures to choose from: incandescent, fluorescent, and LED. While all have their upsides, LED lighting generally wins the day and will ensure that you don’t have to worry about lighting for a long time. Here are a few reasons upgrading your lighting can save you some headaches and money.
It creates a safer and more accommodating workplace
While lighting can improve mood and aesthetics, it can also help reduce physical limitations and improve productivity. Poor lighting can cause eye strain, fatigue, headaches, and an inability to concentrate. With LED lighting you can customize and adjust the warmth of the light to fit the line of business you are in. Industry warehouses, for example, tend to focus more on a brighter tone so employees and customers can safely traverse the space; brighter light also suggests a healthy atmosphere and lower prices. For more up-scale restaurants, however, a darker lighting could be utilized to impose an intimate, relaxed experience to induce happier customer satisfaction.
Durability & Longevity
With LED light bulbs, you have an increased lifespan because they are designed to turn energy into light rather than just heat. Most LED lights can last up to 50,000 hours or about 50 times longer than your average incandescent option. On top of how long they last you don’t have to worry about any toxic materials or heavy disposing fees because they do not contain any mercury filled fluorescent tubes. They are also perfect for bigger open spaces and can withstand a wider range of temperatures and environmental factors, giving you the most bang for your buck.
LED light bulbs have come a long way in price, too. Because they generate light by emitting electromagnetic energy, the efficiency will drastically reduce your electric bill. If reducing your monthly electric bill isn’t enough, depending on your location, many utility companies will offer rebates for the use of energy saving bulbs.
Making such a big financial decision can come with a lot of apprehension, as well as choosing the right electrician to complete your project on time; but there’s no better time than right now to cut some costs and embrace more efficient technology for your business. Whether it’s an office building, warehouse, restaurant, or all of the above LED lighting can transform your workplace and create a much more happy and healthy experience in your business.
