Why you should Switch Your Business Lighting To LED Lights?
The next time you’re flying over a metropolis at night, look down upon the city’s Night Light. You will be deluged by the sight of cool, silvery lights giving the city a clean glow against the black of the sky.
Just for the record, this view had not always been so calming. Look some fifteen years back and you will be met with memories of yellow-orange blanket of murky light over the cities clogging the air. It wasn’t until the late 2000s that the world became concerned with pollution caused by artificial lights and took measures to fix it.
Consequently, an LED revolution overcame the developed countries of the world. Pakistan followed suit only recently, but better late than never. Presently, very few companies are manufacturing LED lights in Pakistan, one of which is Crest LED Lighting.
Large scale firms and businesses have a great role to play in supporting the LED revolution in Pakistan. They have financial and ecological benefits for themselves, too. This article discusses precisely how.
Industries Make Large Scale Use of Lights
We are well aware that LED lights are a more sustainable and eco-friendly lighting option for commercial use.
Lights are used in enormous bulk amounts in factories, store sheds, outlets, and processing units.By making the switch from Incandescent bulbs or CFL to LED lights, the amount of pollution and mercury that the air could be spared of would also be enormous.
LED Lights Have Extended Lifespan
The commercial sector cannot afford to replace lights ever now and then. LED lights are an intelligent solution to this issue as well. They can live up to 50,000 hours before beginning to flicker only slightly.
This means that they can serve commercial businesses for 15 years, with 10 hours of use every day! Low maintenance, high sustainability!
LED Lights Offer Multiple Lighting Effects
LED lights have intricate electronic circuitry built in their drivers. This makes them perfect for lighting up offices, retail showrooms, hotels, etc. in style. They come with multiple dimming, color changing, color tuning, and controlled optical distribution options which can give an edgy overall outlook to the space.
Easy on the Economy and Environment
LED lights currently have a general efficacy of 200 Lumens, and this value experiences a good increase every year. Hence, they are not only economically viable but offer a payback within a couple of years, as the prices are gradually falling and the efficiency rapidly increasing.
Together with being more efficient economically, LED lights have 70% less impact on the environment than CFL. They produce significantly less heat than conventional lights. Unlike their HID counterparts, LED lights pose no apparent threat to sea life by discharge of hazardous substances such as mercury in any of the processes they undergo.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, “Widespread use of LED lighting has the greatest potential impact on energy savings in the United States of America. By 2027, widespread use of LEDs could save about 348 terawatt hours (compared to no LED use) of electricity: This is the equivalent annual electrical output of 44 large electric power plants (which is equal to 1000 MW each), and a total savings of more than $30 billion at today’s electricity prices.”
Equipped with this knowledge and the goodwill of adopting sustainable lighting solutions for the well-being of our country, there is no reason that the commercial sector refuse to promote the use of LED.
The advantages of going pro LED for businesses in Pakistan are plenty, economically, ethically, and environmentally. And we hope to see more and more businesses realizing this.
