5 Reasons to Upgrade to LED Light Bulbs

If you have a large space that needs to be lit, you may have some very practical reasons for not having switched over to LED lights just yet. Perhaps you don’t want to go through the effort and expense of changing your bulbs and fixtures over to the new standard. However, the many advantages this technology provides can make the process well worth it. Here are five of the best reasons why upgrading your lighting to LED makes a lot of sense.


No. 1: Greater Energy Efficiency

Perhaps the primary advantage that LED lights have over traditional incandescent or fluorescent lights is how little energy they use by comparison. LED lights use an average of 50 percent less electricity. That cuts down significantly on your dependence on the electrical grid. It will also reduce your utility bills. The effect may not be very noticeable in a home. However, in an industrial facility in which thousands of square feet must be illuminated for extended periods of time, you certainly will see an impact on the bottom line.



No. 2: Flexibility

With many lighting options, what works in one situation doesn’t work at all in another. For example, an incandescent bulb may light a small room, but it doesn’t fill the bill when it comes to larger spaces. This can result in a mishmash of different types of lighting being used throughout a building. LEDs are different. They offer a lot of flexibility so they can be used in various applications. The beam can be focused or widened, creating either a concentrated spotlight or a more diffuse arc for illuminating large areas.



No. 3: More Color Choices

Another significant feature of this technology is its ability to reproduce virtually any color you want. This means that in addition to bold lighting colors, you also have the option of more subtle variations. For example, you can outfit a workspace with white light that’s cool but bright to bring detailed work into focus. You also can change the color temperature for a warmer glow that will prevent eyestrain. The potential is limitless, so the lighting can be changed to meet your facility’s precise requirements.



No. 4: Longer Lifespan

How many people does it take to screw in a light bulb? In a commercial or industrial environment, the answer usually is “too many.” Changing burnt-out bulbs is no simple task, which means the less you need to do it, the better. Fortunately, LEDs can last as much as 10 times as long as other varieties before they must be replaced, depending on the type. This means less time is spent replacing them.




No. 5: Cost Savings

Although the earliest examples were much more expensive, these lights have come down in cost considerably in recent years. Combined with their reduced energy consumption and longer lifespan, they can save your operation a considerable amount of money in the long run.
