Converting your business to commercial LED lighting systems has many benefits, starting with extremely long lighting life when compared to conventional lighting. Combine that with minimal maintenance, continuous operation and design flexibility, and it’s easy to see why many commercial operations turn to 1st Choice Energy for their commercial lighting needs.

LED Lighting is Key to Energy Management

LED technology is today’s most efficient way of illumination and lighting, with an estimated energy efficiency of 80%-90% when compared to conventional light bulbs. This means that unlike conventional lighting, LED lights convert about 80% of the electrical energy to illumination with little wasted heat production. It’s the opposite effect with traditional incandescent light bulbs, which operate at 20% energy efficiency only, losing 80% of the electricity to heat.

Long Life LED Lighting Products Reduce Maintenance

LED lights generally operate for 50,000 hours or more of continuous operation. For average usage of about 6-8 hours each day, that lifetime translates to about 20 years. Beyond the lifetime of the bulb, most LED systems operate from built-in ballasts, removing a common failure point for commercial lighting (failed ballasts). LED lighting ballasts generally last 5 times longer than fluorescent lighting unit ballasts. This reduced maintenance is especially valuable in lighting locations that require elevated maintenance (such asrooms with tall ceilings or high bay warehouses).

Environmentally-Friendly LED Lighting Helps Business Go Green

Many business are exploring ways to minimize their impact on the environment and improve working conditions for their employees. Commercial LED lighting systems offer several ways to reach environmental goals:

No Toxic Chemicals

LED lights contain no toxic materials or mercury and are 100% recyclable, reducing businesses’ carbon footprints by as much as 30%. Long-life LED light bulbs can save the equivalent of 25 incandescent light bulbs.

Low Voltage Operation

Because LED lights are able to illuminate using low voltage, they are a perfect match with solar power. Solar powered exterior lighting or remote locations can rely on solar arrays for illumination.

Zero UV Emissions

LED lighting is ideal for products with UV sensitivity, and is a great option for preventing UV fading or discoloration. This keeps loss from UV-damaged goods and furnishings to a minimum.

Commercial LED Design Flexibility Improves the Human Side of Businesses

Individual LEDs can be dimmed, resulting in a dynamic control of light, color and distribution. Well-designed LED illumination systems can achieve remarkable and varied lighting effects that can impact the eye, mind and mood of customers and employees alike. Unlike fluorescent lighting, LED lights power up immediately and completely at the touch of a switch, and can be switched off and on frequently without affecting lifespan or light emission quality.

LED Lights Power Through Extreme Conditions

LEDs are ideal for operation under cold temperatures, both indoors and out. LED lights also are resistant to shock, vibrations and external impacts. They make great outdoor lighting systems for rough conditions and exposure to weather. For public areas, LEDs are a rugged solution for vandalism-prone areas, traffic lighting, construction and manufacturing sites.

  • David did an energy audit on the house I bought.  He explained as he went along what he was doing and what would need done. Part of the attic needed added insulation, which he arranged to have done which was a great help to me. He was friendly and professional.

  • I recently used 1st Choice Energy to perform a required Austin energy audit on my parent's home that I am assisting them in selling. They responded to my initial inquiry quickly, quoted a great price right then, and was able to schedule the audit within the next few days.
