Lower your utility costs with green LED solutions from All American Facility Maintenance.
Now you can begin to enjoy the many benefits of green LED solutions by discovering the remarkable evolution in lighting products that generate less heat and more light. The distinct features related to LED lighting can provide you with an improved indoor environment and reduce your operating costs significantly.
Artificial Lighting Evolution
Understanding the transition in replicating daylight through lighting products can give you a general idea of the improvements that have been made. Traditional electric bulbs are known to emit more heat than light. Only 10 percent of the energy generated in incandescent lights is used for illumination. Fluorescent lighting was a step-up from incandescent, using about ½ of its energy for illumination. The rest of the energy is wasted and also creates heat.
For commercial buildings in Florida, generating more heat means using more air-conditioning, which increases electricity costs and puts more stress on AC units. Lighting in commercial buildings consumes about ¼ of the electricity used, and a lot of that usage is wasted energy.
New innovations in lighting have led us to LED (light-emitting diodes) light bulbs. LED bulbs generate very little heat and are twice as effective as fluorescent bulbs in converting electricity into light. LED light bulbs provide many amazing features, such as:
- Improved energy efficiency
- Contain no mercury
- Provide a high quality of light
- Can sustainably endure on/off switching
- LED fixtures are low maintenance
Having your lighting on all the time, even when you don’t need it on in specific areas, is costly and wasteful. Many energy-conscious companies are taking advantage of daylight harnessing to provide light and keep costs down. Daylighting systems help to reduce the dependence on artificial lighting alone and can reduce cooling costs by 20 percent. As the owner or manager of a commercial structure, you should seriously think about including daylighting devices in your building.
Energy Efficient Solutions
Green LED solutions offer an improved source of light that imitates the natural light of the sun, and closely emits its unique spectrum and color interpretations. LED light bulbs release energy from electrons to create light, and a clear light field that is ideal for all types of task work. Productivity is increased and energy is harvested intelligently with LED lighting.
You will discover that energy efficiency is significantly improved with LED light bulbs because less energy is needed to produce light. Heat is also greatly reduced with LED bulbs, and together with lighting, can save you money on electric costs. LED light bulbs also have a longer lifespan that other light bulbs, require less maintenance, and are easy to dispose of because they contain no mercury.
Green LED solutions are the best choice for lighting and are used in:
- Hospital surgery rooms
- Office buildings
- Science labs
- Engineering firms
- Retail establishments
Upgrading to LED light bulbs has many impressive benefits, including a long lifespan. On average, you can expect LED’s to offer you 11 years of continuous operation, or 22 years of 50 percent operation. When LED’s are used for 8 hours per day, you can expect up to 20 years of good service before you have to replace them. Another interesting feature about LED bulbs is that they don’t burn out, but over a long period of time they emit a lower level of light that is less bright.
If you want to reduce your electric costs, and improve your facility’s lighting, you should upgrade to green LED solutions. For more information about LED lighting, contact All American Facility Maintenance today at: 855-347-1613.
