LED High Bay Lighting - An Integral Part of Commercial & Industrial unit?
Zion Market Research states that If the LED lighting industry is able to achieve a CAGR of 13% through 2022, then the expected industry market size could reach $54.28 billion. In 2016, the global value of the industry was $26.09 billion.
Business units mostly function with the help of high bay lighting, some use LED UFO high bay and others use LED Linear high bay lights.
Advantages of high bay lighting enhancement to advanced technology in any commercial or industrial unit are huge as there are hundreds of fixtures consuming energy every second, directly contributing to operation cost.
While many research and business trends prove the growth LED commercial lighting & its share in the market booming, we have been seeing hundreds of warehouses that still use old HID lamps to illuminate their unit every day.
Which actually means that there are commercial units out there that are still lacking the importance of understanding the technology and burning money on energy bills.
In this blog post, let’s talk about the integral part of LED lighting in saving energy.
- HID fixtures problem with turning ON instantly
- Dimming feature of LED High Bay Lights
- Very low variable maintenance cost
- After purchase benefits - rebates and incentives
HID fixtures problem with turning ON instantly
Have you seen large warehouses with old HID fixtures turning ON well before the actual timings?
HID lighting fixtures take a lot of time to light up at its highest capacity. Usually, it takes 15-20 minutes to light up the warehouse efficiently.
It means that they start consuming energy even before required. Let’s consider 20 minutes of energy wastage every day and that sums up to 100 hours of energy wasted without any use, besides having a 60% higher wattage than LED commercial lights.
In simple words, a 400W of HID lighting fixture can be replaced with 150W of LED High Bay Lighting fixture to light up the same 15-20ft. of the warehouse.
Dimming feature of LED High Bay Lights
They are LED Dimmers easily available in the market and they work best with LED lighting fixtures that have dimming feature since they are easy to install they make lighting even more efficient and durable with time.
While Metal Halide lighting fixtures don’t support the commercial unit in energy efficiency with dimming feature, it only adds up the cost to the lighting bills.
LED High Bay lights at LEDMyplace have dedicated connecting wires that connect with the compatible dimmers and operates dimming from 0V to 10V.
LED lights incorporate with various sensors and provide the best possible lighting that any warehouse could have increased productivity and ambiance of the space. This is called “adaptive lighting” and it’s a major way to generate savings at a commercial facility.
Very low variable maintenance cost
Most of the LED commercial lights we have at LEDMyplace come with 50,000-hour lifespan and 5 years warranty, considering the durability and efficiency of the LED lights, we have seen commercial warehouses using these LED commercial lighting for years and spending zero on maintenance cost.
In simple words, even if the LED lights are turned for 12 hours a day, it would last close to a decade and with no maintenance, IP65 Rating of these LED lighting fixtures protect them from dust and moisture along the way.
After purchase benefits - rebates and incentives
Nothing is better than getting extra support.
There are numerous incentives and rebate programs by energy companies that support warehouses that buy LED Commercial Lights.
The initial cost of LED lights is significantly higher than that of HID lighting fixtures, but in the long run, these LED lights provide a huge amount of return by saving up to 70% energy cost bills.
Note: We have launched our White UFO LED High Bay Light 150W
The LED lighting industry is rapidly increasing. Pricing for LED light bulbs has been steadily decreasing, which is a trend that is expected to continue in the future.
As a business owner with warehouses, it’s really important to be a part of the race. It’s not only going to contribute to saving money but also to promote eco-friendly lighting.
