LED lights for commercial lighting give businesses and property managers the cost saving benefits of LED lights and the peace of mind that comes from knowing they made the best choice for the environment. With their energy efficiency, durability and long lifespan, LED lights provide a reliable lighting solution that can save businesses hundreds of thousands of dollars over the lifespan of the bulbs.
Building and property exteriors
LED lights work well in a variety of commercial settings.The beam of an LED light is easy to focus and can be used to illuminate a walkway or building entrance. Combined with a motion detector, LED lights can deter potential threats. The lifespan of LED bulbs also means instead of changing bulbs in hard-to-reach places every couple of months, you’ll be changing them every 17 years with eight hours of use a day. They are also durable enough to withstand rough weather conditions and most external impact.
LED lights are available in a variety of brightnesses (measured in lumens) and color temperatures (measured in kelvins) and have the ability to illuminate a large area, like a walkway or patio, with a single bulb.
LED lights for commercial lighting and ceilings
LEDs are becoming a popular option for overhead lighting for numerous reasons. One benefit that should be considered for an office setting is that LED lights, unlike traditional lighting options, have very little heat output. While one little lightbulb doesn’t seem like it would make that much of a difference, when the heat output is magnified by the hundreds of light bulbs are in an office or commercial setting, suddenly, reducing the amount of heat output makes a difference, both on cooling costs and in the comfort of employees. LED lights are also available in a variety of light temperatures ranging from cool white to warm white, making it easy to find a lighting temperature that is right for your employees and office setting.
Desk and floor lamps
If any desk and floor lamps are currently using traditional lighting options, like incandescent, halogen or CFLs, they can be replaced with LED bulbs. Choose a bulb that is a 60W equivalent and that is a warmer color of lighting. Many people find warm yellow lighting preferable to blue/white lighting for reading and desk work. Look for bulbs that are 2,700 K or higher if you are looking for soft, warm ambient lighting.
Also keep in mind employees’ comfort and health when choosing bulbs. To prevent eye strain, office lighting should be kept no brighter than a user’s computer screen.
