3 Reasons to Use LED Lighting in Your Office Space

Creating a pleasant environment in your office helps boost productivity as well as improve your mood. Although lighting is one aspect of office workspaces that is often overlooked, lighting has a big impact on a work environment. There are several reasons to use LED lighting in your office instead of traditional fluorescent lights.

1. Customizable

Lighting in an office often affects the overall atmosphere in the workspace. Flickering lights or lights that are too harsh or too dim sometimes be a distraction to employees or to guests who visit your office. However, LED lights give you the opportunity to choose the perfect, consistent type of lighting for your specific environment, which might help employees improve their levels of productivity.

2. Durable

When you spend an extended period of time in an office daily, having frequent issues with the office’s lighting can become frustrating. Unlike traditional fluorescent lights, LED lights are often long-lasting and simple to install. LED lightings generally do not need to be replaced as frequently as fluorescent lights, and the ease of installation means that you and those around you spend time on other important tasks that are unrelated to the lighting.

3. Cost-Effective

One reason LED lights have become popular recently has to do with energy efficiency. LED lights use significantly less energy than fluorescent lights, making them a good choice for your office and for the environment. Over time, LED lights help to lower your office’s energy bills and energy consumption. In addition to spending less on the lights themselves, you are likely to spend less on maintenance since LED lights are also less likely to need frequent repairs when compared to fluorescent lights.

LED lighting can be beneficial in the office due to its customizable features, long lifespan, and a lower monetary and environmental cost. If you are considering installing LED lights in your office, Progressive Energy Solutions can help make the installation process easy. Contact us today at 303-756-1938!

40 and 60 watt bulbs — gone the way of the dinosaur

After changing very little since the time of Thomas Edison, the common 40 and 60 watt incandescent bulbs are now illegal for manufacture  in the U.S..

Did you know?:  As of January 1st, 2014, the Federal government has placed a moratorium on the manufacture or import of most incandescent bulbs.

Why?:  90% of an incandescent bulbs energy is wasted as heat, not light. Think of them as good little heaters that just happen to give off a small amount of light.

Did you know?:  Certain types of newer bulbs, such as LED and Ceramic Metal Halide, can save up to 80% of the energy used in comparable incandescents.

Why?:  The bulk of energy powering this new technology goes to providing light, not heat.

Did you know?:  At an expected lifespan of 50,000 hours, you may need to include the new bulbs in your will!

Why?:  If you put a 50,000 hour bulb in your lamp and run it 4 hours a day, 7 days a week, you won’t need to replace it for over 34 years!

Fun facts all, but what’s the bottom line you ask? Most of us should consider the savings and improvement in quality of light that the new technology offers. When the first CFL’s (you know, the squiggly tubes) came out a few years ago, many people ran out and bought them only to be disappointed with the quality of light. They were too bright, too white, and had a terrible glare. Not so with todays offerings. You can enjoy the ambience you want and still realize big savings. The City and County of Denver offers a no-cost energy advisor’s program for residential customers to inform you as to how you can save on lighting and other energy efficiencies.

If you’re a business owner, the savings can be even greater. Commercial applications of the new bulbs and technology yield large energy and cost reductions,  often saving thousands of dollars for businesses, non-profits, schools and churches. Xcel Energy is now offering great rebates and incentives to help defray the costs involved with an energy efficient upgrade project. Plus, Xcel Energy recently affiliated with TIP Capital to offer financing for energy saving projects.

To find out more about the commercial energy savings opportunities, contact Progressive Energy Solutions, a local Colorado company that has worked closely with Xcel on these types of projects for years. They will conduct a no-cost energy audit to propose the best and most cost efficient upgrades to your facility.  You can reach Progressive Energy Solutions at 303-916-6433 for more information.
