American Lighting is California’s leading lighting contractor for parking garages, parking lots, and more. We understand how important it is to have bright lighting for affordable prices. That is why we specialize in lighting retrofits. We replace old, dim lights with bright, energy-efficient systems that are incredibly affordable.

LEDs have become more and more popular in the past few years, and with good reason. If you read either of our last two blogs, you have seen six reasons why they are the best lighting option for any business. We finish up the list with three more in this blog.

  1. LEDs are very safe
    • LEDs run much cooler than other bulbs, which eliminates the risk of fires or burnt fingers. They are not bubbles of fragile glass – they are solid, which means they will not shatter and get broken glass everywhere.
  2. LEDs are energy-efficient
    • LEDs lose a mere 20 percent of their energy to heat loss – and the energy they require is already 10 to 20 percent less than the energy needed for incandescent bulbs of the same brightness. This is far better than incandescent bulbs, which lose 80 percent of their energy to heat.
  3. LEDs last longer
    • LEDs do not have filaments, so they can last more than 100,000 hours before showing age. This 11-year lifespan is double the lifespan of a fluorescent bulb, and twenty times the lifespan of an incandescent bulb.

LEDs have an undeniable advantage over all other forms of lighting. The best thing is, as we move forward, innovations are being made possible by LEDs. Better colors, efficiencies, and applications are in the future. Do not get left behind – contact American Lighting today!
