Not only the lamp and fixture, but it should also include lighting controls to maximize your energy savings. Sensors and switches allow you to moderate the amount of light used during the course of the day, depending on how the lighted area is used. Make sure that the controls are compatible with the lights so that they work properly.
- An LED lighting installation uses less input wattage, reducing energy costs up to 90%.
- Only 10% of LEDkWh usage is converted to heat, so your AC bills will be lower.
- LED bulbs last longer and are 100% recyclable with no special disposal requirements, lessening your maintenance expenses.
- LED lights emit no ultra-violet [UV] and little infra-red [IR] light that can damage the eyes or skin, making them safer to use.
- LED lights do not contain high-pressure gases or thin filaments, making them more durable.
