If you own or manage a warehouse or industrial building for your business storage or production, you know how important the lighting is. If your warehouse lighting currently operates with traditional light sources, consider replacing everything with LED lights.
Warehouse buildings have high ceilings, tall shelving, large floor space, and few windows. Because of the lack of natural light, proper LED lighting helps workers see the tasks at hand and ultimately be more productive with workflow. Here are some additional benefits of installing LED lights in your warehouse.
#1: Energy savings.
According to the Department of Energy, LED lights use up to 90% less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs. When you combine this lighting with the use of motion sensors that reduces light usage when not needed, you can save even more energy.
#2: Money savings.
Less energy use means lower utility bills. At the end of the day, that translates to more money in your pocket and greater profits for your business.
#3: Less maintenance.
Your warehouse is a busy place and finding time to continually replace burnt out bulbs can be time consuming and frustrating. But with LED warehouse lights, you won’t need to worry about that anymore. These lights often last 10 to 15 years or longer, depending on how often they are used every day.
#4: Greater durability.
LED lights are more durable than traditional bulbs. They don’t use wire glass and are shatter resistant. Also, because the lights utilize acrylic paint, they are resistant to harsh, corrosive chemicals and hold up better in extreme humidity, heat and cold. So, no matter what type of warehouse environment you have, you can count on LED lights to do their job, no matter what.
LED lighting comes in a variety of color options and some bulbs are available in different white light hues. Dimmable options are also available. You can customize your LED lights for both indoor and outdoor use because they are highly adaptable to different spaces with various temperature environments. When upgrading your warehouse lighting, also consider adding LED lights to your parking lot and entryway or pathway steps. This enhances the safety of your building.
#6: Less toxic chemicals.
LED lights are not made with toxic chemicals. They are also completely recyclable, which means you are doing your part to reduce pollution. As a Pierce County business owner, you can be confident that LED lights are a great option for your commercial building. They are energy efficient and will withstand various Pacific Northwest weather conditions both in or outside your commercial space. They are one of the best ‘green’ technologies on the market today, which is why many warehouse owners and managers have chosen to get their lights upgraded immediately. Not to mention, when you upgrade, you could be eligible for rebates from Tacoma Public Utilities, which saves you even more money in the long run.
