Do you know why LED lighting is more efficient than traditional fixtures?
Are you eager to learn more about how LEDs can be used to reduce your overall energy needs?
As a business owner, an LED lighting retrofit can be an important solution for your commercial space. There are design basics for business owners to be aware of that will help you understand how LED fixtures can give you better quality lighting and a more efficient infrastructure.
Did you know…?
A new LED system typically results in energy savings of as much as 85 percent compared to traditional lighting systems? While there is an upfront installation cost, the return on investment is apparent almost instantly with ongoing energy savings.
Good LED Lighting Design Can Improve Efficiency and Increase Sales!
We’ve talked about how LED lighting can improve sales before, but LEDs using targeted lighting can improve your overall efficiency and reduce cost.
According to experts, “traditional light fixtures are like candles – they give off light 360 degrees. Properly fitted LED lighting comes out of fixtures at 180 degrees, directed with optics, not reflectors, which results in a more efficient use of the energy to light your space.”
When considering an LED retrofit of your space, have the engineer analyze the following items to ensure optimal LED lighting design, according to SIB Lighting:
- Thermal management
- Photometrics & 3D renderings
- Usage vs. longevity of LED fixtures
- Spacing of the fixtures
- Lumen requirements for code compliance and productivity needs
- Multiple lighting layouts to see what option fits your space best based on the tasks being performed
- What options for lighting control are available for the space(s)
