Most businesses use outdated lighting technologies. This results in everything from less-than-safe working conditions to larger utility bills.

Fortunately, the many disadvantages of aging lighting technology can be easily eliminated by upgrading to commercial LED lighting. We specialize in efficiently and effectively eliminating the problems associated with fluorescent and HID lighting.

Let’s take a closer look at the problems with older lighting technologies, the advantages of LED.

What are the Inherent Problems with Aging Lighting?

Fluorescent and High Intensity Discharge (HID) are the predominant light sources in commercial buildings, warehouses and parking lots. 

These older technologies typically produce omnidirectional light – which means only a percentage of the light produced is used for illuminating the intended target, and more powerful lamps and reflectors are needed to provide adqeuate illumination.

 They often produce unfortunate side effects like flickering and offensive coloration. This can lead to health issues, and unnecessary eyestrain, impacting productivity. And they require regular replacement – lamps a typically replaced at three year intervals and lumen output degrades dramatically over that period. It’s not uncommon in large buildings to see one ore more maintenance employees whose sole function is relamping and re-ballasting.

What Are The Advantages
of LED Lighting?

Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs) distinguish themselves from fluorescent technologies by virtue of the fact that the process of producing light by exciting hazardous gasses is eliminated. Light is created when low voltage current is used to energize the diodes.

Among its greatest benefits is the fact that LED is so much more efficient. Commercial LED lighting uses a fraction of the energy consumed by older technologies.

The light is more unidirectional and can easily be focused on the surface(s) requiring illumination.

Because LED lumen output can be maintained for much longer periods, your employees and customers will enjoy a more inviting atmosphere, and heightened safety and security, for many years to come.

Finally, LED dominates traditional lighting by virtue of its reliability. When our diodes are subjected to industry standard testing, the projected life expectancy is 200,000 hours. That means they’ll illuminate the average building for 20+ years.
