For full-time employees in America, the average worker spends 47 hours each week at the office. You might not think that lighting has much to do with health and happiness, but in actuality lighting impacts mood and productivity just as much as it does electricity bills.
1.Spend More Now To Spend Less Later
New innovations in technology, including light technology, are emerging every day. We’ve all become aware of a few ways for how we can reduce energy consumption and consequently decrease energy costs. The main argument for installing LED lights is that, although LEDs are more expensive upfront compared to other light options, LEDs use less energy to produce the same light brightness as other lights options and it costs less money to operate LEDs in the long run.
When designed well, LED lighting is more efficient, durable, versatile, and longer lasting than other light options.
2.Effective Lighting Improves Employees’ Moods, Productivity, Health, and Happiness
There’s not much you can do if someone flat out hates his or her job; however, with the right kind of lighting installed in an office building, it is proven that employees are happier, healthier, and more productive at their workplaces. We like to think office lighting goes hand-in-hand with employee outings, like office happy hours: Just like humans need a healthy dose of social interaction to be productive, they also need natural sunlight to function properly. LED lights mimic natural sunlight better than any other light technology out there.
LEDs are the ideal lighting option for office settings because LEDs are focused lighting. This makes LEDs perfect for specific lighting tasks, like: desk lamps, reading lights, security lights, spotlights, and signage.
3.Help Save The Environment
Did you know: Fluorescent lights emit harmful carcinogenic gases that are linked to cancer risks? Did you know incandescent lights release a substantial amount of CO2 into the atmosphere? Fortunately, LEDs do neither of these things. Also, in the next 5 to 10 years, the use of LEDs is expected to reduce greenhouse gases by a minimum of 10%.
In addition to using less energy to emit the same light brightness as other light options, LED light bulbs last longer (an average of 50,000 hours) and are dimmable. LEDs are frequently referred to as the ‘near zero maintenance lighting system,’ because most LED light bulbs can last for years without having to be replaced.
LED lights generate virtually no heat too. The lights are cool to the touch and can be left on for hours without incident.
