LED stands for Light Emitting Diode and these types of lights come in a range of different shapes, sizes and colour temperatures. Lights can be chosen to suit the tasks or activities performed in the space. They are more flexible than the often-harsh white light of traditional commercial lighting options.
There are many befits that result from upgrading old lighting technology to more energy efficient, LED lighting. These range from significant financial savings to improved safety and a more comfortable environment to live, study or work in.
There is typically a very large difference in the wattage of older technology (such as tubular fluorescent lamps) and newer LED options. Replacing old lights with more efficient LEDs can reduce their energy use by more than half. Plus, the output of LEDs remains more consistent over their lifetime compared with less advanced lighting technologies.
LED lights can last considerably longer than fluoro models (which are often used in commercial properties, car parks and schools) and can therefore have a big impact on your maintenance costs. A longer lifespan also means less interruptions to your day-to-day business operations.
