Let LED Lights Lead the Way

LED lights have been in use for close to three decades, and they are the best replacement for fluorescent and older lighting. Of course, with large operations it’s more than climbing a ladder and changing out a few lights. Making the switch from one lighting source to another takes planning and execution from a professional company.

Why are LED lights the right choice for your industry?

  • LED lighting typically saves 50-80% of electricity usage and carbon footprint while providing better lighting at the same time. 
  • LEDs are made for every application, color type, brightness level, shape, and design. 
  • Most LEDs are designed to last 100,000 hours or over 11 years if they are on 24/7. 
  • LED upgrade projects are typically in the 1.5 to 2.5 year payback range and save for 11 years.
  • Many utility programs across the country pay 30-50% of the cost of the commercial building LED upgrade for you.

EET and LED

Energy Efficient Technologies has worked with national retail chains, restaurants, data centers, beer distribution, distribution, grocery stores, assisted living, and manufacturing facilities to help them convert their operations over to LED lighting. They have all experienced the difference, saving up to 50-80% on their electricity bills on average.

We start with a visit to your facility and perform a thorough review of your current lighting situation, problem areas, energy use, and performance. From there we write and deliver a proposal that shows the cost to install LEDs along with the energy savings and carbon footprint reduction your operation will gain. Financing is available with no money out of pocket and no debt.

After this, our expert installers will take care of everything: from filing rebate applications; changing out the existing lighting and ballasts; recycling your old equipment; and making sure the LED lights are installed and working. Once this step is complete, you’ll be amazed with the results – including the savings and carbon footprint reductions over time.

LED Lights vs. Fluorescence

As more and more businesses and residential home owners switch to LED lights, it’s obvious they are a better choice than the traditional fluorescent lights, for multiple reasons.

Fluorescent Tube Lighting LED Tube Lighting
Materials Materials
  • Glass
  • Plastic
  • Metal
  • Mercury
  • Aluminum
  • Polycarbonate lens
  • High quality electrical component
  • No hazardous materials or toxins.
Longevity Longevity
  • Fluorescent tubes last anywhere from 2-5 years before a replacement is required.
  • LED tubes last up to 100,000 hours, which is 11 years if on 24/7 and pays for itself over time.
Recyclability Recyclability
Must be recycled by a special company that handles the disposal of hazardous materials.   All it takes to recycle an LED light is to disassemble the tube and then drop the aluminum and plastic off at a recycling center.
Efficiency Efficiency
Fluorescent tubes can only produce about 50-100 lumens per watt (lm/w).   On average, electrical consumption costs make up 17% of a company’s budget. If an LED light requires 26 watts (W) and outputs 3334 lumens (lm), that translates into about 130 lumens per watt (lm/w. Lots of light, not lots of money.
Installation Installation
Significant maintenance is required.

fluorescent tubes require a ballast for normal operation.

The ballast adds an additional maintenance point, as ballasts may also need to be replaced.

Most common LEDs use direct-wire (UL Type-B) installation, which bypasses having to install a ballast.
