Energy Efficient Lighting Helps Businesses Grow

Energy Efficient Lighting Helps Businesses Grow

Businesses can save a lot of money in the long run by replacing inefficient light bulbs like incandescents with energy efficient solutions such as compact fluorescents and LED light bulbs.

Energy Efficient Lighting Helps Businesses Grow

The bottom line of any business is affected by operating costs including the energy bill.  Energy efficient technology is a must in any new or old business because sticking with inefficient old incandescent light bulbs is simply a waste of money.  There are a lot of benefits to using compact fluorescent or LED light bulbs for your business's lighting needs. 

Incandescent lighting has been the standard for a century, but new lighting technology has made it abundantly clear that this particular standard is in fact substandard.  Compact fluorescent light bulbs are available in a range of color temperatures, from the incandescentesque 2700K to the white-with-a-tinge-of-blue daylight 6500K.  The best color temperature range for the display of products would probably be 4100K to 5000K; this is a clear, bright white light that allows any product to really stand out and be noticed.
While it's important to have excellent appearance, perhaps the most important aspect of energy efficient lighting is its effect on your bottom line.  Energy bills drop significantly after any compact fluorescent light bulb or LED light bulb retrofit, and the larger the scale of the retrofit, the larger the savings will be.  Consider the savings realized in this case study as a good example; this particular situation does not involve compact fluorescents or LEDs, but illustrates how a large-scale retrofit with more energy efficient technology can positively impact a business's bottom line.
LED light bulbs are perfect for spot lighting such as clearly and brightly illuminating a specific product.  Their size and lack of heat contribute to easy placement, while their extensive life spans allow you to forget about having to replace them for years.  Current LED technology is such that they are not the best for wide area lighting, but that will probably change as technology improves.  Stick with compact fluorescents for such applications for now, and you will see your energy bills drop.
