Did you know that, on average, most business lighting systems account for 20% to 50% of monthly utility bills? Converting your business lighting to LED can greatly reduce your operating overhead, as well as the need for ongoing lighting maintenance expenses. If you’re a business owner, building manager, or facilities director, you’re always in the market for money saving solutions. Switching your lighting system to LED can be a great solution and will help you reduce your bottom line. While LED light bulbs cost more than traditional incandescent light bulbs, the long-term savings are significant. By switching to LED, commercial building owners can cut their costs by more than 75% over a 25 year period.
If a full lighting retrofit isn’t in your budget, there are some alternatives that can save your business money.
- Always turn lights off when rooms are unoccupied and utilize natural light when possible.
- Install motion sensor lighting controls to reduce unnecessary energy expenditures.
- Invest in an energy management system (EMS) that will track your usage and help to identify potential cost savings.
