To look at how we can reduce energy consumption, we need to look at the energy source. There are other blogs where we can look at heating consumption or appliance energy reduction, but we’re OEO and we know lights. Let’s see how LED can save energy and we might just see how it can also save you money.
Replace Your Bulbs
First we have to make a big decision about your commercial property. If you own a commercial building, your lighting requirements will be strictly regulated. You'll need enough light to illuminate industrial-scale properties, which means lots of light bulbs.
However, compared to other industrial lighting options, such as high-density discharge bulbs, replacing the bulbs can save up to 80% of the electricity. If you only change half the light bulbs, you can only reduce your energy consumption by 50%. As technology has become more widespread, LED bulbs have become cheaper to install and less expensive to install.
Don't change your lights
Changing to an LED may cause you to worry about installation costs, but that's not always the case. In a few cases, you will have to install a new light fixture. The rest you have two options. You can use our modified LED to bypass ballasts in metal halide and high pressure sodium lamps. Alternatively, you can start reducing energy consumption immediately with our plug and play replacement bulbs.
Using motion sensors
Unlike HID bulbs, which take a lot of time to get the light to the desired intensity, leds reach full light output in fractions of a second. While this is convenient in terms of not waiting for work, it also allows for another aspect.
Motion sensors can be connected to LED lights, so they can only be used while a part of a commercial building is running. This reduces energy consumption because they do not open when they are not needed. This not only saves energy and money, but also serves as an additional safety aspect to prevent accidents and crime.
Program your lighting
Motion sensors aren't the only technological advance in which leds can help save money. LED lighting is more programmable than most other lighting options, especially in commercial environments. You can program them to open at specific times of the day so that they open zones only when needed. You can set up different program Settings for different actions without requiring people to manually rotate individual controls.
You can control not only the LED lighting on and off, but also the type of light output they create. You can have brighter white light earlier in the day and then let the light change over time. This can be controlled by light sensors, which means that the bulb itself can measure the amount of natural light and adjust the bulb accordingly. Light sources no longer unnecessarily waste bright light.
Can be better used with renewable energy
LED lighting does not require as much power as its competitors to produce the same light output. It doesn't waste energy on heat. Like HID, it lasts longer and does not depreciate over time. Lower energy consumption means they are better able to power alternative energy sources like solar or wind without compromising quality.
While these lighting options can help reduce commercial real estate's energy use, don't forget that's not their only benefit. They are also safer and can save you money. Commercial property owners are helping themselves, their customers, their workers and the larger industry by turning to LED lighting.
