Outdoor Lighting for Commercial Buildings: 3 Reasons to Choose LED

Jul 13th 2017

Up until recently, LEDs were only really used in commercial settings for very specific lighting purposes. LEDs weren’t considered a great option for general lighting in or outside of commercial spaces. Fortunately, technology has finally caught up with the expectations of the lighting industry and right now LEDs are better than ever. Here are 3 reasons why you should choose LED lights for exterior lighting on and around commercial buildings.

1. LED Lights Save Time, Money, and Energy

Compared to other lighting solutions, LEDs are more cost- and energy- efficient, and last approximately 10 times longer. LEDs provide a crisp white light comparable to daylight, and when used in conjunction with floodlights, are capable of providing thorough illumination for commercial properties.

Even with the blue-hue LED light bulbs, energy savings has always been LED’s leading advantage over other light technologies. It’s common knowledge by now: If you install LED light bulbs and fixtures, you might spend a little more money upfront, but in the long run you’ll save money by spending less money on energy bills and replacement light bulbs. Additionally, LED light bulbs and light fixtures are dimmable and can be set up to be motion-activated. Many conventional light options cannot be dimmed, and some even take a while to turn on. LED lights are instant on, do not hum, and do not contain any toxic materials (like mercury).

With longer lasting LED light bulbs, you can successfully reduce the need for maintenance. Some LEDs last 10,000 hours, while others can last as long as 100,000 hours. The longer it takes for your LED light bulbs to burn out, the longer you get to wait to replace your light bulbs.

2. LED Flood Lights Increase Security

Sufficient and strategically placed lighting makes customers and employees feel safer and discourages potential troublemakers from partaking in criminal acts. Floodlights are normally installed throughout parking lots, parking garages, and other commercial property locations because they are able to illuminate large areas effectively. Without light, criminal activity is more likely to occur because there is generally a lesser chance of offenders getting caught.

3. There Are Plenty Of Options To Choose From

Every kind of light fixture offered in halogen, fluorescent, and incandescent has an equivalent LED—and LED far surpasses all of them in terms of energy-efficiency, cost savings, and longevity. Superior Lighting, a top distributor of LED light bulbs and fixtures, is the proud supplier of hundreds of high quality and high performance LED flood bulbs.
