If you work in the construction industry, you should consider investing in a light-emitting diode (LED) lighting system. Construction sites require lighting. Without lighting, productivity will drop and the risk of injury will increase. Rather than using traditional spotlights or flood lights, though, an LED lighting system might be a better choice for the following reasons.
#1) Minimal Heat Production
LED lighting systems produce very little heat, making them a safe lighting option for construction sites. They involve the use of LED bulbs, which unlike incandescent bulbs, don’t contain wire filaments. Incandescent bulbs have wire filaments that heat up during use. LED bulbs, in comparison, are semiconductors that illuminate as electricity travels through them.
Since they produce minimal heat, LED lighting systems are safe. You don’t have to worry about accidentally burning yourself if you touch them, nor do you have to worry about LED lighting systems igniting objects or materials.
#2) Energy Efficient
Of all the different lighting technologies available, LED is one of the most energy efficient. LED bulbs consume less energy than nearly all other types of bulbs. According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), residential LED bulbs with the ENERGY STAR label consume 75% less energy on average than incandescent bulbs. You can take advantage of their energy-efficient benefits by using an LED lighting system for construction sites.
#3) Available With Streamers
There are LED lighting systems available with streamers. A streamer is a string of multiple, interconnected lights. Available for sale here at Monroe, Integro’s AC/DC Converter consists of an AC-to-DC converter device along with an LED streamer. You can hang the LED streamer over any construction site for quick and easy illumination.
#4) Indoor and Outdoor Use
Some people assume that LED lighting systems can only be used indoors, but this isn’t the case. While some LED lighting systems are designed for indoor use only, others can be used indoors or outdoors. Integro’s AC/DC Converter, for instance, is suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
You can save money by using an LED lighting system for construction sites. With their energy-efficient properties, they have a lower operational cost than other types of lighting systems. An LED lighting system that’s 75% more energy efficient than an incandescent lighting system, for example, will save you 75% on lighting expenses. Furthermore, LED lighting systems are long-lasting. They don’t degrade as quickly as quickly as incandescent lighting systems, nor do they burn out like their filament-based counterparts.
