LED Lighting  


Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are an excellent solution for residential and commercial properties. Not only are LED bulbs extremely energy efficient, but they also are brighter, emit less heat and have a long lifespan when compared to traditional lighting options.

For the last decade, LEDs have seen significant technological advancements and are now being used in a wide variety of applications in the residential, commercial and industrial markets. We offer a wide range of products to match all of our customers’ needs to dramatically reduce your annual electric costs.

The Advantages of
LED Lighting

 

Longevity

The #1 advantage of LED lighting is its longevity. LED bulbs have a superior operational lifetime – up to 100,000 hours. That’s 10 times longer than compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs) and 133 times longer than the typical incandescent bulbs. This also results in lower replacement and maintenance costs. Although LEDs have a higher initial cost than incandescent bulbs, CFLs or induction lighting options, the investment may be recovered over time through lower electricity costs and reduced maintenance and replacement costs.

Energy Efficiency

LED lighting is one of today’s most efficient lighting options. In fact, when compared to traditional incandescent bulbs, LED bulbs consume between 85% and 90% less electricity. Additionally, they produce virtually zero heat, which lowers your cooling costs.

Environmentally Friendly

Where most conventional fluorescent lighting contains mercury and other hazardous chemicals, LEDs are toxic free and 100% recyclable – which could help you reduce your carbon footprint by up to a third. Additionally, the long lifespan also means that by choosing one LED bulb, you are eliminating the material and production of 25 incandescent light bulbs, which is a step towards a greener future.

Durability

LED bulbs are highly durable and built with sturdy components. LEDs are solid-state lighting devices that utilize semi-conductor material instead of a filament or neon gas, and as such, they are designed to withstand vibration, shock and extreme temperature fluctuations. Because of their high durability, they make an excellent outdoor lighting choice. They can tolerate extreme weather conditions (rain, wind, sleet and snow), temperature fluctuations and even vibration from traffic, construction or manufacturing operations.

Low UV Emissions

LED illuminations produce little infrared light and close to no UV emissions. Because of this, LED lighting is highly suitable for lighting goods and materials or UV-sensitive objects, such as those found in a museum, art gallery or archeological site.

Optimum Light Disbursement

LED lighting can be directed to a specific location without the use of an external reflector, and a well-designed LED illumination system is able to deliver light more efficiently to the desired location.

Instant Lighting & Frequency Switching

Unlike other traditional lighting options that take time to reach full brightness, LED lights, when powered on, brighten up immediately. This is a big advantage for infrastructure projects, such as roadwork lighting during nighttime construction and traffic signal lights. Also, LED lights can be turned on and off frequently without hindering the lifetime or light emission, unlike their conventional counterpart.

Note that in some regions, commercial facilities may be eligible for utility company rebates. Talk to us to see what’s available in your area.
