As a business, there are countless things that you need to be conscious of. Energy consumption and efficiency are two of the most important things that you need to be mindful of and improving at all times. Each choice that you make affects both of these factors, making the weight of your choices all the heavier.

One of the most prominent items that contribute to the energy efficiency and consumption of a business is the lighting. In the last decade or so, we have seen the use of LED light bulbs increase significantly, and for a good reason. In today’s blog post we are going to cover three benefits to using an LED light instead of the traditional lighting options.

Extended Life

If you’re changing out the light bulbs in your business relatively often, you could definitely benefit from LED lights. Unlike incandescent light bulbs, LED bulbs don’t really burn out. Instead, they fail over time. If you can believe it, LED light bulbs are designed to last anywhere from 30,000 to 50,000 hours — at least!

Because these lights have such long lifespans, you don’t have to worry about switching them out quite as often. Depending on how often the light that the LED bulb is in is being used, you might even be able to squeeze a few extra hours out of them. Either way, you definitely wind up reducing the number of bulbs that you’re purchasing.

LED Bulbs Love the Cold

This may sound like a ridiculous point to make, but you’d be surprised just how beneficial this factor is. The traditional fluorescent bulbs require a higher voltage to work. When temperatures are low, the overall brightness of the bulb decreases. LED bulbs, however, thrive in these cool temperatures.

Again, this may sound like a strange point to make, but as a business owner, you surely have a few cold areas that are lit. From refrigerators and freezers to parking lots and signage, there are plenty of opportunities to make the change and enjoy this strange benefit.

Energy Efficiency

As we mentioned earlier, energy efficiency is something that you always need to be cautious of. The energy that is consumed by lighting up a facility is astounding, so when you have the opportunity to reduce that use — take it! LED bulbs are one of the more affordable ways that you can minimize energy consumption.

These bulbs use roughly 50 percent less electricity than some of the other traditional lighting options. You would be surprised how substantial the savings of this change can be.
