[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″]If you are uncertain about switching to LEDs, don’t worry. Your concerns are common. LED technology has been around for a while, but it is only now becoming a practical solution for lighting. And with lighting being so important to your business, the decision to switch can’t be made lightly.
We have put together this simple guide to help you answer the questions we hear most often.
Are the Cost Savings Real?
Absolutely, and they are probably more significant than you realize. Switching to LED lights can save you huge amounts on your monthly electric bill. They also last for much longer than any other technology on the market, which saves you money on the long-term cost of light bulbs. Plus, using LED bulbs at your business may qualify you for generous rebates and incentives from local utilities.
How Difficult Is the Upgrade?
In many cases, LED bulbs fit directly into your existing light fixtures. In some other cases, a retrofit or upgrade to your ballasts is necessary. But in every case, the money you save on utilities, bulbs, and maintenance will offset the cost of making the switch. It is a true win win scenario when you can get a better product for less money.
Why Should I Switch to LEDs Now?
Incandescent light bulbs are quickly disappearing from the market due to government mandates. CFL bulbs are an alternative, but they create a lot of hassles for your maintenance staff, and most experts agree that they are a bridge technology at best. LED lighting is the true technology of the future, and the sooner you switch, the sooner you can begin reaping the benefits.
Will LEDs Create New Maintenance Challenges?
LED bulbs solve a lot more problems than they create. Since they are made of hard plastic, they are extremely difficult to break. They also shine without creating heat, so replacing them requires no special precautions. When your maintenance staff sees how easy LED bulbs are to use, how long they last, and how high-quality the lighting is, they will thank you for making the switch.
What Will the Effect on My Lighting Be?
LED bulbs can do everything your current bulbs can do, and more. They attach easily to timers, dimmers, and motion sensors, plus, they can be colored, coordinated, and styled with ease. No matter what your lighting goals are, from creating intimate ambiance, to high-visibility factory spaces, LEDs adapt with ease.
Don’t think of LED lights as an unproven technology with an uncertain future. Businesses around the world, and in all industries, have switched to LEDs because they are the best available lighting source on the market right now. The quality and capabilities of this technology are growing every year because most major lighting manufacturers have committed to LEDs as the next big phase in lighting. Now is the time to start doing things differently.[/vc_column][/vc_row]
