How Does LED Lighting Save Your Company Money?

Many businesses require tons of lighting in their buildings or stores and with so much electricity being required, lighting can be a huge expense for your company, but it can also be a good way to save money. By making the switch to LED lighting, there are tons of benefits for your business but the number one benefit is that it will save your company money in the long run. With its multiple advantages, there’s no reason not to make the switch, especially if your business is looking to reduce its carbon footprint.


  1. LED lighting is more energy efficient

Compared to regular lights such as incandescent bulbs, LED lighting is much more energy efficient with about 80% of the electricity being converted to light and only 20% converted to heat. In comparison, regular lighting options instead only have about 20% electricity being converted to light and the rest is just given off as heat. With all that energy being lost, users of traditional lighting are basically throwing their money away.


  1. They produce less heat

Since LED lights produce less heat than traditional light bulbs, they keep the environment at a cooler, more comfortable temperature. This means that your AC units have less work to do and you can save money on cooling costs.


  1. They last longer

Compared to traditional incandescent light bulbs, LED lights last up to 25 times longer! They last 8 to 25 times longer than halogen incandescent bulbs.


  1. Instant lighting rebates

If your Connecticut business is looking to save money by installing LED lights, there are rebates available through the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund to help offset the initial installation costs. You can learn more about eligibility requirements and qualifying lighting at


  1. Better light distribution

Another benefit of LED lighting is that they have a better quality of light distribution. Traditional lighting tends to emit light in all different directions which can waste energy, but LED lights generally focus light in one direction. Ultimately this means that you won’t need as many LED lights to get the same level of brightness so you can save money.
