Most of us have memories of parents yelling, “Turn the lights off!” whenever we left a room. Who knew that mom and dad were so far ahead of the energy-conservation curve? About 19% of all electricity produced globally is used for lighting. However, today the emphasis isn’t so much on turning the lights off as it is on ensuring the type of lights we turn on in the first place are as efficient as possible.
Foley Mechanical can help maximize your lighting efficiency with LED lighting.
Switching from incandescent to compact fluorescent light (CFL) can take a 60 watt bulb down to about 23 watts, while still maintaining the same brightness, yet these bulbs are not without problems of their own. CFLs’ mercury content has caused much concern, especially when it comes to bulb disposal.
The preferred alternative is LED Lighting. One 10-watt LED light bulb can produce the same amount of light as a 60-watt incandescent. Plus, it provides these great benefits:
LED Lighting is 90% more efficient than standard incandescent bulbs
LED Lighting does not require costly and frequent maintenance
LED Lighting provides 50,000+ hours of operation
LED Lighting is durable: no breakable glass or filaments
