Commercial LED lighting is being used in factories and warehouses, automotive headlamps, traffic signals, street lighting, parking lots, and even in aircrafts and aviation environments. A clear sign that they’ve moved out of the home and office and entered into virtually all industries as many more have come to realize their benefits.
While LEDs have had a presence in certain electrical applications since the 1960s, it is only recently that the popularity of the technology has become widespread, starting in the home and gradually expanding to other industries.
Why has commercial LED lighting become so popular? Because business owners and industry leaders are realizing what many homeowners already know - commercial LED lighting offer a plethora of benefits when compared to traditional incandescent lighting and even CFL (compact fluorescent) lights. Here’s a look at some of these benefits:
Cost Savings: Commercial LED lighting offers a lot of benefits, but arguably the biggest benefit is its cost saving. As we all know, LED light consumes much less energy than traditional lights, as a result, the more LED lights you’re running, the more the savings add up. Business owners and plant managers are always looking to cut costs and add money to their bottom line. Commercial LED lighting is one way they can accomplish this.
Long-Lasting: We already hit on this benefit in the above section on energy efficiency, but it’s worth mentioning again. Yes, LED bulbs can last up to 50,000 hours, a far cry from the 1,200 hours of incandescent bulbs. And while it’s generally easy to change out a bulb in your home, the long-lasting benefits of LED lights are certainly beneficial in things like automotive headlights or overhead warehouse lighting, where bulb changes are a bit more of a pain.
Availability: Commercial LED lighting is not specialty application anymore. In fact, for many, it is the norm when it comes to lighting. Yes, LED lights are widely available in a bevy of different formats. There’s really no good excuse to not be using them.
