While making the switch to solar energy has vast and obvious benefits, many home and business owners forget that they can make a change inside as well. Getting rid of incandescent lighting and switching to LED lighting offers many benefits to both residential and commercial customers.
Reduce Your Utility Costs
LED lighting is extremely energy efficient. Most LED blubs are 90% more energy efficient than that incandescent bulbs they replace. This increase in efficiency will dramatically lower your utility bill.
Reduce Your Maintenance Costs
On average, LED lighting lasts about 10 times longer than incandescent. This increased lifespan brings the cost of maintenance down significantly. If you are a business owner operating a large space, this is especially true. There is a huge benefit to having a bulb that will last years before you need to have someone come to replace it.
Incandescent lights generate a large amount of heat, which can pose a threat to safety. The heat generated by incandescent lights can lead to burns or fires. Because LED lights do not generate heat, they are much safer.
Eliminate Hazardous Materials
Most workplaces rely on fluorescent lighting, which contain dangerous materials such as mercury and lead. These materials are known to be hazardous to our health. If you switch to LED lighting, you remove these threatening materials completely.
