The average person generally does not spend too much time thinking about lighting during the day. However, it might be time for them to start. Lighting is an essential aspect to any business. For offices, a well lit environment makes a great difference between sleepy, distracted workers and attentive, aware employees. In 1996, the Reno Post Office in Nevada was renovated to include a better quality of light in the building. Indirect light was enhanced and better quality electric lighting was installed. The quality of light helped the mail sorters become more productive. Reports from the first 20 weeks in the new building show productivity increasing more than 8% and leveling to 6% above the old numbers a year later (Romm and Browning 1994).
In a retail environment, the proper lighting can make products and merchandise look their absolute most appealing. Rhino Lighting Solutions LLC, the National Distributor of Electric Resource Services LED lighting, strives to provide businesses and consumers with energy efficient lighting solutions through LED lighting. Whether you are choosing to upgrade your lighting in order to give your business a more clean and professional look, or seeking energy conservative means of lighting, Rhino Lighting Solutions, LLC has the LED solution.
It has been projected that by 2016, 60% of commercial lighting will be LED exclusive. Many proactive businesses such as Footlockers, Yankee Candle, Macy's and Starbucks have already switched over to the more conservative and attractive LED bulb method of lighting. What is causing these business giants to make the switch? Quite simply, it is because CFL lighting is not cutting it for businesses that really care about their light quality. CFL light bulbs are not only disruptive to power grids and linked to dangerous mercury vapor, but they also require 40 times more energy to manufacture. On all counts, they are an environmental disaster.
Most shockingly, for all of the power drain that CFL lighting can be attributed to, the quality of light that CFL bulbs provide is sub-par! The quality of light for LED bulb lighting is far greater than that of CFL lighting. LED bulbs provide a balanced light spectrum that is pristine and concise, and most LED lighting allow for brightness adjustment options, as well.
LED lighting is ultimately an investment, one that has financial returns and is beneficial to the environment. Cash on cash recovery is typically 7 - 24 months. Since LED bulbs last for around 50,000 hours of use, which is approximately 5 years and 7 months (assuming you leave them on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week), your maintenance costs disappear.
