You can reduce operating costs with LED lighting with the help of Advanced Control.

It’s no mystery to commercial property owners that lighting costs are a large operating expenditure. So, learning about new lighting trends that can cut energy usage and costs is a smart business move.

One popular current trend is investing in LED light bulbs that can positively affect your bottom line. LED lighting, also known as light-emitting diode lighting, has become synonymous with green building products and energy efficiency.

LED Light Bulbs

LED light bulbs are high-efficiency light bulbs that are effective in curbing wasteful energy usage. Lighting estimates account for 21 percent of all lighting consumed by the commercial sector, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA).

By switching out dated lighting methods, such as fluorescent and high-density discharge lighting, with LED light bulbs, energy conservation is dramatically improved.

When compared to traditional lighting methods, high efficiency light bulbs, like LED lighting, are:
• More energy efficient
• Safer
• Longer lasting
• More resilient
• Provide better light quality
• Emit less heat, reducing interior cooling costs
• Are less expensive to maintain
• Reduce electric costs
• Are more versatile
LED lighting solutions can be employed in many applications, providing an instant upgrade to your existing lighting hardware. The good news is that retrofits can be applied to upgrade commercial and industrial fixtures for businesses that include: retail stores, hospitals, office buildings, schools, malls, etc.

High efficiency light bulbs can also be used for exterior lighting fixtures, such as: in parking garages and lots, ramps and walkways, exits, loading docks, etc.

LED Lighting

Advanced Control Corporation is a leader in green building design and construction, along with our proprietary software, to create a seamless infrastructure operation that is energy-efficient and cost-effective.

We specialize in LED lighting, and other devices, products, and systems that can upgrade your lighting system to meet your desired goals.

The DesignLights Consortium (DLC), which provides commercial sector lighting solutions, lists LED light bulbs as a verifiable source of energy conservation. This listing makes LED light bulbs eligible for rebates from local utility companies, in turn saving you even more money.

The U.S. Department of Energy describes LED lighting as one of the most energy-efficient, and rapidly emerging lighting technologies. LED high efficiency light bulbs can be 6 to 7 times more energy-efficient than conventional lighting, and reduce energy usage by more than 80 percent.

The ubiquitous use of LED lights has the potential to essentially transform the future of lighting in the U.S. Preferred Energy Star rated, high efficiency light bulbs use less energy, and have a longer lifespan than incandescent lighting – lasting 25,000 hours or more. This lifespan is equivalent to 3 years of lighting being continuously used 24/7.

LED’s emit light in a precise direction, reducing the need for diffusers or reflectors that can trap light. This feature makes LED’s a priority for use in task lighting and recessed downlights.

LED lights have many other beneficial features that are too numerous to mention here. But suffice it to say that your lighting system can be greatly enhanced with LED lighting.
