As discussed in Part 1, electrical warehouse services can promote productivity, safety, and savings. The topics of Lighting, HVAC Systems, and Power were discussed. Part 2 will discuss Warehouse LED Lighting Upgrade and its advantages.
Monthly electrical bills can be quite considerable for companies with several big warehouses, and so a lighting retrofit that promotes energy efficiency in each facility can result in significantly less electrical consumption. The transition from older lighting technology to LED (light emitting diode) bulbs is perhaps the best first step because it will result in the largest savings in electrical costs. In many cases, the typical cost of a LED retrofit for a warehouse can be recouped within two years.
The typical service life of a halogen bulb is 1,000 hours, while incandescent bulbs can last 2,000 hours. Fluorescent tubes and compact fluorescent lights (CFLs) can provide from 7,000 to 15,000 hours. Metal halide lamps function 6,000 to 15,000 hours. LED lights are the most durable of all, lasting 30,000 to 130,000 hours; their long life naturally results in less maintenance costs because they do not need to be replaced as frequently.
Emulating natural daylight, LED lighting provides high-quality lighting. As a result, warehouse workers will be more alert, perform at a higher level, and suffer less eyestrain. In regions with long winters and less daytime, LED lights can help improve the mood and morale of warehouse workers.
Decreased Utility Expenses
Every organization must provide sufficient lighting for their warehouse workers and facility visitors, both inside and outside of the facility. Fortunately, this expense can be decreased considerably by transitioning from older light bulbs to LEDs. Depending on the type of lighting that was replaced by LED, savings in utility bills of 30% to 80% after an LED upgrade can be achieved.
