In the constant struggle to bring down operational costs and increase efficiency, here’s one trick that’s a no-brainer. With a constant rise in energy costs, and an increasing demand for a diminished carbon footprint, many companies are thinking ahead and reaping the rewards of retrofitting their entire office to LED.


Ontario and Canada are both making a massive movement towards LED Lighting technologies for the undeniable benefits it brings to reducing the Carbon Impact on our planet. Businesses are reaping the rewards of reduced energy cost while making a positive impact on the environment.


If you’re still pondering whether you should make the switch to LED Lighting at your facility, here’s 10 reasons!


1. Save On Energy Bills


Your business will save HUGE on energy bills! The energy efficiency of LED light bulbs compared to other types of lighting is only 2-17 watts of electricity (which is approximately 1/3rd to 1/30th the energy used by Incandescent or CFL). LED bulbs used in fixtures inside the home save electricity, remain cool and save money on replacement costs since LED bulbs last so long.


You’ll save so much that most business will make back their entire retrofit investment in as little as 1 year!




2. Reduce Carbon Emissions


LED lights use less than 20% of the energy than other light bulbs and last up to 15 times longer. This will help you GREATLY reduce your organization's carbon emissions.


Estimates suggest that almost half of our carbon footprint is due to electricity and 17% is due to lighting alone.


3. Recent Reduction in LED prices


Many manufacturers of LED lights are looking at ways to reduce the cost of producing LED lighting products with mass production now becoming more of the norm than previous years. Quality and increasing product lifetime will still be part of the manufacturer’s product development strategy.


Philips has always been and still is at the forefront of LED lighting development. For over 20 years we have made significant investments in research and development of LED lighting technology, building up one of the most comprehensive portfolios of LED lighting system and control IP. Since the mid-nineties the market for LED based lighting products has grown and matured.


What was a breakthrough innovation ten or more years ago may seem obvious now. But at the time all these innovations were developed to address specific, difficult challenges. Read more at Philips.com


4. Energy Costs on the Rise


Energy costs are anticipated to rise by 25% between now and 2020 due to a number of factors. These reasons include an increase in network provider costs, government taxes and levies as well as and increasing suppliers costs.

5. Enhanced LED Lighting Technology


In the early stages of LED, the lights were limited to emitting low-intensity infrared light and could only produce a red colour. Their primary use was indicator lights for electronic devices and replaced incandescent bulbs.

Today, the game has totally changed. Lighting in offices and industrial spaces has a profound effect on the well-being, productivity, and worker vitality. Effectively lit and attractive environments enhance your image, help you recruit and retain high-value employees, and increase the total value of your facility.


6. Evolving Technology with lots of room to Grow


The advancements in LED lighting technology mean that the future will be geared to LED lights over any other type of commercial lighting. The diagram below illustrates the current types of lighting and their limitations versus the scope for LED for the foreseeable future:

7. Increasing Energy Efficiency


LED lights need much less wattage to light up any room or outside space compared to CFL or incandescent light bulbs which is why LED lights are more energy efficient and last longer than any other type of LED lighting.


8. LED Lighting for a Variety of Applications


LED lights are very versatile and can be used in small or large indoor or outdoor spaces because of the size (small to large), no gases, no moving parts to fatigue, no screws to loosen or glass to break, they have multiple colour variations, low temperature emissions and lifespan.


9. Low Maintenance Cost


The longer lifetime of an LED light is around 50,000 hours compared to 1,200 of an incandescent light bulb which means they need replaced less often and therefore reduces the maintenance cost of your organization's lighting.
