LED Task Lights Are Energy Efficient
This is the third entry in a series about ergonomic LED lighting
Conserving energy and saving money – sometimes it feels like these two issues are more pressing now than ever. In the world of ergonomics, we like to point our clients to energy-efficient, environmentally-friendly LED lighting. We all need light, right? So why not invest in a quality lighting solution that can help you save money, conserve energy, and protect the environment?
LED lights are a progressive, energy- and cost-saving lighting solution for any home, office or workplace. The latest LEDs use as little at 10% of the energy used by incandescent bulbs, and LEDs can last up to 60 times longer than incandescents. By lighting your office or workspace with LED lights, you can shrink your carbon footprint and reduce energy consumption and costs while taking advantage of the best ergonomic lighting available.
As we move to become a more energy-conscious global community, we strive to find products that can help protect and preserve our environment. LEDs are one of the most efficient energy-saving lighting options on the market. When you switch from incandescent to LED lighting, you help reduce CO2 emissions, sulfur oxide and high-level nuclear waste.
Several cities in the US are replacing their incandescent traffic light bulbs with long-lasting, energy-efficient LEDs. This move will help cut long-term electricity costs by 80 percent or more while helping to cut down on harmful CO2 emissions in the atmosphere. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, LEDs could reduce national energy consumption for lighting by 29% by 2025, saving the nation’s households $125 billion on electric bills. The facts are clear: switching to progressive LED lighting will save you money.
So why are LED task lights more efficient and more earth-friendly? The answer lies in the LED lighting’s design and durability. LEDs are solid, and they hold up well to stress and long-term use in any environment. Unlike incandescent bulbs, an LED light can last as long as 50,000 hours. LEDs are durable, which means they’ll last long and you won’t have to replace them on a regular basis; a problem many users have with incandescents.
We’re proud to offer the latest Humanscale LED Task Lights. Humanscale is a top innovator in ergonomic LED lighting, and their LED lights are long lasting, conserve energy, and offer warm, focused illumination for any task. Read about the further benefits of LED lights over other lighting options.
Next week, we’ll explore how LED lights are brighter and less labor intensive to maintain.
