LED Lighting for Warehouses and Factories
Would you like to lower your factory’s energy bills? Factories and warehouses use a significant amount of electricity, with essential utilities such as lighting and heating making up a large percentage of each energy bill.
Using energy efficient LED lighting, you can reduce your building’s electricity usage, saving thousands of pounds every year, all while reducing your factory’s emissions and becoming a cleaner, greener business.
There are numerous advantages to LED lighting. LED light bulbs use less electricity than similar fluorescent and incandescent bulbs. They also last longer, with a total lifespan of up to 50,000 hours for high quality LED lamps.
Not only do LED lights cost less to run and last longer than CFLs and incandescent lighting – they also provide a higher quality, more natural light that minimises the effects of sick building syndrome and creates a more comfortable workplace.
The larger your warehouse or factory, the more you can potentially save by using LED lighting. In some cases, you may be able to reduce your lighting-related energy consumption by as much as 75 per cent.
Would you like to learn more about LED lighting for your building? Read on to learn about the unique benefits of LED lighting and the cost savings you could experience by switching from CFLs or incandescent lighting to LED light bulbs.
Affordable, reliable and increasingly popular with manufacturers
Did you know that lighting represents, on average, as much as 37% of a warehouse or light manufacturing facility’s electrical consumption.
It’s an incredible figure, but it’s true. Because factories and warehouses have such large areas, the cost of lighting a manufacturing or storage facility around the clock or simply during working hours can be immense.
If your manufacturing facility or warehouse uses incandescent or fluorescent light bulbs, it could reduce its electrical consumption by as much as 75% per month and save thousands of pounds on its electricity bills by switching to LED lighting.
LED lighting, once viewed as a modern and effective yet expensive option, is now a far more cost effective solution than other lighting options. Thanks to the incredible efficiency of LEDs, lighting your building using LED light bulbs is very inexpensive.
Over the last decade, LED lighting has become increasingly popular with many of the world’s leading manufacturers. Ford Motor Co. recently invested $25 million in LED lighting for its manufacturing plants throughout the United States.
Save thousands of pounds in electricity over the long term
LED light bulbs cost more to purchase than similar incandescent or fluorescent light bulbs. However, because they’re so efficient, they only cost a fraction as much to use and last for five to 50 times as long as other light bulbs.
On average, LED light bulbs use less than 25% as much electricity as incandescent light bulbs. Amazingly, a nine watt LED bulb can produce the same amount of light as a far more demanding 60 watt incandescent bulb.
LED lighting is even more efficient than the energy saving CFLs installed across the UK in many factories and warehouses. On average, LED light bulbs cost 12% less to run than equivalent energy saving compact fluorescent light bulbs.
The low running costs of LED lighting mean that installing LED lights isn’t simply a quick cost-cutting measure – it’s a serious investment that can help your business save tens of thousands of pounds on its energy bills over the long term.
LED lighting has unique benefits for manufacturers and warehouses
Because factories and warehouses have significant lighting needs, LED lighting has unique financial and environmental benefits that have greater value to warehouses and manufacturers than office or home users:
Save tens of thousands of pounds on electricity
Lighting is a major source of electrical consumption for factories. Warehouses, due to their large square footage and lighting needs, often consume significantly larger amounts of electricity for lighting and heating than other buildings of similar size.
LED lighting is highly efficient, using more than 75% less electricity than equivalent incandescent lighting. Switching to LED lighting can result in a significant reduction to your building’s lighting-related electricity costs.
Reduce your building’s carbon dioxide emissions
Incandescent and fluorescent lighting isn’t just costly to operate – it’s also quite a wasteful choice. Even energy saving CFLs, which are marketed as a green lighting choice, contain toxic chemicals that significantly reduce their recyclability.
LED lighting uses very little electricity and thus produces little carbon dioxide. The materials and components used in LED lighting are also largely non-toxic and easy to recycle, making LED light bulbs an environmentally sound choice.
Lower your building’s maintenance requirements
On average, LED lights have a function lifespan that’s between 30 to 50 times longer than incandescent light bulbs and three to five as long as energy efficient fluorescent lights.
Switching to LED lighting doesn’t just reduce your building’s electricity usage – it’s also a great way to reduce its maintenance needs by purchasing bulbs that last for longer and need to be replaced infrequently.
Create a healthier, more productive environment
Finally, LED lighting is an important element of creating a workplace environment that is healthy, efficient and productive. Research shows that buildings lit with LED lamps have higher average productivity than buildings lit using CFL lighting.
LED lighting has no contribution to sick building syndrome (SBS) – a condition that can arise from poor air circulation and low quality fluorescent lighting. This makes energy efficient LED lighting a great choice for creating a healthy workplace.
Make the switch to LED lighting
Would you like to spend less on electricity? Lighting is a significant cost for many warehouses and factories that can be reduced through investment in LED lighting.
Switching to energy efficient LED light bulbs can reduce your building’s electricity usage, downsize its carbon emissions and effect on the environment and lead to a more healthy, productive and comfortable work environment.
Every year, thousands of manufacturers replace their inefficient fluorescent lighting with energy efficient LEDs. Join a growing movement of manufacturers and storage businesses and become more energy efficient.
We specialise in energy efficient lighting and renewable energy and can help your business make the switch to LED lighting. Our team of experts have provided LED lighting equipment, advice and assistance to a wide range of UK businesses.
