In 1962, lighting was redefined and reimagined thanks to an employee at General Electric named Nick Holonyak, Jr. He is credited for inventing the first visible-spectrum LED in the form of red diodes. Since then, many other inventors have built upon his findings and tweaked his invention. Now, many businesses today are saving thousands of dollars each year on their utility bills. Does that sound too good to be true?
According to studies conducted by the Environmental Protection Agency:
“Energy represents 30% of the typical building’s costs and is a property’s single largest operating expense. It is estimated that 30% of the energy consumed in buildings is used inefficiently.”
One of the best ways to eliminate this wasted energy is by swapping your incandescent light bulbs for LED light bulbs. These lights emit substantially less heat than regular bulbs, which in turn lowers your electricity bill. Additionally, you’ll notice other benefits such as:
- 11+ year bulb lifetime
- Decreased energy waste
- Increased employee productivity & health
- Improved quality of light
- Lower utility bills
- Recyclable bulbs
Whether you’re a small shop in downtown or you’re a commercial building that requires a lot of lighting, we’re confident that once you implement these bulbs, you’ll see a decrease on your energy bill. When you contact Hays Service, our experts will evaluate your current lighting situation and discuss how we can help you save potentially thousands of dollars each year. If possible, you can funnel those savings into other cost-saving actions such as replacing or updating your HVAC equipment.
Older HVAC systems work harder to produce clean, fresh air for your team. Modern or well-maintained HVAC systems operate far more efficiently and can significantly reduce your yearly energy costs.
