Brighten Your Workspace: The Benefits Of Upgrading To LED Lighting In Offices

Creating a healthy and functional workplace is one of the most essential factors to consider when running a business. When thinking about what to include, many managers forget about the importance of good lighting.

With LED lighting paving the way to the future, there are many reasons that it would make an excellent addition to your office. Let’s take a look at the benefits.

Save Money On Lighting And Energy

One of the most obvious advantages of using LED lighting is its efficiency. Compared to traditional halogen bulbs, LED light bulbs last much longer. In fact, some can last for thousands, even tens of thousands of hours before they need to be replaced.

According to energy companies, using LED bulbs could save as much as 90% of consumed energy. This translates to lower outgoings for your business and that’s a change we can all get on board with.

Mimic Natural Light

Humans are programmed by a circadian rhythm that allows us to function as we should throughout the day and rest at night. However, traditional artificial lighting doesn’t cater to these primitive needs whereas LED lighting does.

As opposed to being harsh, too bright and headache-inducing, LED lighting provides a much more natural light. The benefit of this is that your employees will feel more alert and ready to work.

While LED light is of course not as beneficial as natural light, studies have shown that the use of OLED lighting does disturb the circadian patterns less than other types of artificial lighting.

Better Quality Light

Nobody wants to sit in a dimly lit office squinting at a computer monitor and straining their eyes. Unfortunately, this is a reality for many office employees but that could all change with the simple addition of LED lighting.

LED lights produce a more consistent and high-quality light that, as I have mentioned, more closely mimics natural light. In short, this is going to feel more comfortable for those in the office.

On top of this, when LED bulbs begin to fade, they still produce the same quality and consistency of light until they are changed. They won’t ever flicker (which is terrible news for people who suffer from migraines) so this will keep your employees happy and productive.

Greater Versatility

The amazing thing about LED lighting is that it is so versatile. There are many different types, shapes and sizes of bulbs and lighting systems so this type of lighting can be used in many settings.

These bulbs provide consistent and uniform lighting within an office space but are also ideal for areas where good lighting is essential for safety, such as in a factory. If you’re running a business with several areas then LEDs are a must.

Not only this but LED bulbs are incredibly durable so can be used even in areas where traditional methods would be at risk of damage.

Low Maintenance

As I discussed earlier in this post, LED lights last far longer than traditional halogen bulbs. The great thing about this is that you don’t need to worry about changing them as frequently. While changing light bulbs would by no means be considered a lengthy job, when there are lots of them, that time could be better used elsewhere.

What’s more, the initial installation and maintenance of your LED lighting is so simple. You can choose to have an LED system installed by replacing existing fixtures or just use new LED bulbs in your current fixtures.

This is one of the most cost-effective ways to upgrade your office.

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Not only do LED bulbs consume far less energy which is great news for your company’s carbon footprint, but the very manufacturing process has less of an environmental impact.

That’s because LED bulbs contain no harmful substances like mercury or lead. What’s more, they contain no glass!

Traditional halogen bulbs have a glass casing whereas LED bulbs are made from a type of durable plastic. What’s the benefit of this? Quite simply, they’re super easy to recycle!

They Look Amazing

If all of the above points weren’t enough to blow you away then consider the aesthetic value of LED lighting.

There’s no getting away from the fact that conventional halogen bulbs look ugly but that isn’t the case with LED lighting. In fact, there are so many different designs such as strips, panels, light layering, luminaires and much more.

If you’re looking to boost the appearance of your workspace then lighting is one of the first things you’ll need to upgrade. And there’s always the possibility of working with your supplier to create something unique and attention-grabbing; perfect for office spaces where you need to have that wow factor!
