As companies start to hear about the benefits of LED lighting, many find out that the technology inside an LED light is fundamentally different from traditional lighting. Traditional lights involve an electrical charge passing across a filament that glows white-hot and generates heat and light.
LEDs, on the other hand, are Solid State Technology, which refers to the fact that semiconductors are the method of moving energy, rather than something like a cathode-ray tube, which passes electrodes through a vacuum. All of this to say that LEDs are part of a class of exceptionally stable and long lasting products.
This technology yields lights that last 20-25 times longer, require less maintenance, and draw less energy, resulting in lower electricity bills. Many restaurant franchises have seen how adding LEDs into their locations compounds benefits over time, while providing more easy to control and high quality lighting.
While some amazing applications for LEDs have been found in multi-location stores like restaurants, fitness centers, grocery stores, and malls, there are other industries that may benefit quite substantially from the LED lighting revolution.
LEDs for Office-Based Industries
Accountants, dentists, doctors, and lawyers all work in environments that must maintain an optimum level of light while reducing their overhead. Offices with halogen lights or incandescent lights actually experience less natural lighting, so office-based industries where employees spend much of the day inside really benefit from the more natural hue of LED lights, which can aid in motivation.
An office-based chain, like a string of accountant offices that are connected to the same larger company, can reap substantial savings by considering a multi-site retrofit that adds LED lighting and generates as much as $1000 the first year.
LEDs for Sports Venues
Industries that put lights in hard-to-reach areas very high in the air tend to spend a lot of money on maintenance and repair, as well as money on the insurance needed to have someone climb up and replace the bulbs. For these industries, the benefits of LED lights are even greater. Sports venues, for example, require large lights to make the field clear during evening games, which means that they can reap the energy cost reduction as well as employ fewer technical specialists to change light bulbs.
Even for outdoor events that are much smaller than sports stadiums, like a parks system within a city or county, it is valuable to consider LED lighting for both indoor or outdoor needs. There is more freedom in where to locate lighting when you know that you will only replace it infrequently, so your design options grow, not only your savings.
LEDs for Churches and Places of Worship with Multiple Locations
Non-profit organizations, like churches and places of worship, try to funnel the money they receive into the work they do, which makes LED lighting an especially helpful option for them. With the variable lighting hues, bright spotlights, and other options available, churches can benefit from retrofitting their buildings and pouring the savings back into their work in their communities.
Other entertainment venues also benefit from LED lighting. However, given that churches often put on performances and have weekly gatherings that require specific lighting needs, while still trying to maintain a responsible and well-managed budget, they are exceptionally good places for LED lighting installations. Lowering maintenance and energy costs can be one way to keep a non-profit organization going through lean times, and an investment in LEDs now pays dividends for years to come.
As you can see, many multi-location industries are realizing that replacing traditional lighting with LED lights is a fundamental shift in the future of their businesses; MultiSite LED is at the forefront of this work.
