Lighting is essential to the function of commercial buildings, so much so that lighting accounts for up to 40 percent of the overall energy used. In order to majorly cut energy costs, people are looking to new technologies, such as light emitting diodes (LED), for both interior and exterior lighting. LED lighting, a specialty at CTS Cabling, offers cost effective installation and maintenance and is a much cheaper and effective lighting source than more traditional options such as incandescent and halogen.
The main advantages of installing LED lights in your building are as follows:
- Long life span significantly reduces costs
- Efficient and smooth dimming improves energy profile
- Enhanced color and lighting quality increases worker productivity
- Limited heat emission resulting in lowered HVAC
- No mercury, so more environmentally friendly
Over the last five years, there has been a major increase in the number of LED options, formats and competitive options for traditional lighting. There are now hundreds of LED fixture formats for every possible need. The industry predicts that LED fixtures in commercial buildings will grow exponentially over the next five years due to the technological advances in performance and the amount of savings it will bring to energy bills. Energy is extremely expensive and lighting, which is used in mass quantities in buildings and homes daily, is a large contributor. By installing LED lights, buildings and homes will use 75 to 80 percent less energy than with older incandescent lights. Because LED is cost effective, user friendly, environment enhancing and lasts a lifetime, it is an attractive lighting option.
