Troffer LED light panels are a better option than fluorescent light panels for commercial and non-commercial settings. They are more energy efficient, have a longer lifespan and have a quicker return on investment for companies.
Benefits of troffer LED light panels
Before LED lights became more affordable and commonplace, many light panels used fluorescent bulbs. Now, while many light panels are still lit with fluorescent bulbs, LED lights are gaining in popularity.
It’s easy to understand why. With all the benefits of using troffer LED light panels many companies are viewing the energy efficient light panels as an investment that quickly gives them a return on their money. Below are some of the most noticeable benefits of switching to Thinlight’s LED light panels.
The savings in energy costs that companies can expect to see from switching to a troffer LED light panel are significant. LED lights use about half the energy of fluorescent lights. For example, a building with 100 light fixtures could expect to see a savings of over $5,000. A light panel, of course, costs less to illuminate, but owners can still expect to see their energy bills drop by switching to a troffer LED light panel.
Thinlight offers multiple options to make sure customers are getting the look that they want with their troffer LED light panel. Light panels are available in two color temperatures – 3,000k and 5,000k. Thinlight also offers a variety of frame colors to match the existing decor of a space.
No fluorescent tubes
For years, fluorescent has been the only practical choice for light panels, but fluorescent lights have always had drawbacks. In addition to not being very energy efficient, they also contain mercury, a pollutant that causes health problems and that is very difficult to remove from the earth if it enters a landfill or dump. Fluorescent bulbs also have a much shorter lifespan. On average they last 7,000 to 15,000 hours. LED lights, on the other hand, last an average of 50,000 hours.
