Reduce Energy Use
LEDs are more energy efficient than traditional fluorescent lighting. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, LEDs can be up to 45% more efficient.
LEDs are much less fragile than fluorescents and therefore less prone to breakage. Plus, they contain no mercury which simplifies the disposal process.
Old Lights Prohibited
US Congress has enacted legislation to prohibit the manufacture of T12 lamps, some T8 lamps, incandescent lamps and other inefficient technologies as a method of moving energy consumers to be more efficient.
LED lights have much longer life spans than traditional fluorescents, reducing your replacement and maintenance costs. The typical, expected useful life is over 50,000 hours. By incorporating dimming controls, you can extend the life span even further and increase savings.
Switching to LEDs means that your lighting system is now free of ballasts. All of the service calls related to ballasts will become a thing of the past.
Improve Light Quality
LEDs produce an even, bright light which can improve the comfort and productivity of your employees.
Reduction in AC Load
With very low operating temperatures and no heat generating ballasts, the use of LEDs will reduce your AC load significantly, especially in the warmer regions of the U.S.
