What are my LED Lighting Choices?

April 9th, 2014

Lighting represents 40 percent of the electrical consumption in a commercial building, affecting other building systems through its electrical requirements and waste heat production. Lighting retrofits can decrease lighting electricity consumption by 50 percent or more, which makes it one of the first considerations for reducing utility costs.

Technology

Commercial LED applications are one of today’s most energy-efficient and rapidly-developing technologies. The electricity used over the life of a single incandescent bulb ends up costing 10 times the original purchase price of the bulb itself.  Replacing conventional lighting with LEDs will reduce lighting energy use over the lifetime of the bulb, (up to 50,000 hours), thereby reducing operation costs. LED technology has also made major advancements in color temperature, which results in a “warm” atmosphere that also maximizes lumen/watt output. Available features like dimming, motion sensors, and automatic daylight shut-off further increase LED efficiency.

Products

LED bulbs are currently available in many forms such as LED Replacement  for 4-PIN & 2-PIN CFL making upgrades even easier and more affordable.

Other exciting new products available are 3-way LED bulbs which replace the 3-way incandescent counterparts found in most hotel guest rooms table lamps.

Additional LED bulbs are available include replacements for 40W, 60W, and 75W traditional incandescent, reflector bulbs often used in recessed fixtures, and small track lights.
