Answering the most common FAQs about LED lights for commercial properties

  1. How do LED lights work?- LED lights use a heat sink to draw light away from the electrical components, and ensure that the product will be long lasting. Despite producing less heat, the LEDs produce more light than other types of lamp that have been used frequently over the past decades, and that’s why you should lower the wattage, when switching to LED lights.
  2. Why should you switch to LED lights?- Switching to LED lights can reduce your energy bills, as less electricity is needed to produce light. This can also reduce your maintenance costs, as the LED lights will not blow as frequently as other lighting types. LED lights also do not contain any harmful substances or chemicals, and can be recycled easily. All of these benefits are great for any company, especially those looking to move towards more sustainable business practices.
  3. Can LED bulbs work with dimmer controls?- Adjustable lighting can be an important consideration for a number of commercial businesses. LED lights can work with a dimmer, but you will need the right type of bulb, and the right dimmer fitting for this to be successful.
  4. What colour ranges are available for LED bulbs?- LED Bulbs come in a variety of colors, but the most common are in a range from 2700 Kelvin to 7500 Kelvin. Typically, the warmer the light, the more yellow tones, the cooler the light, there are more blue tones.
