What is in the Fixture Should matter… LEED and Sustainability
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is an ecology-oriented building certification program run under the auspices of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
LEED concentrates its efforts on improving performance across five key areas of environmental and human health:
- Energy efficiency,
- Indoor environmental quality,
- Materials selection,
- Sustainable site development and
- Water savings.
Why should you switch to LED?
The Environmental & Economical Case for Industrial and Commercial LED Lighting
It is estimated that lighting alone can consume up to 35% of a buildings total energy consumption. When you take into consideration the lifetime savings of what an LED system can provide, it often becomes an economical no-brainer.
Most people don’t know that recent developments in LED technology can now produce LEDs that emit a soft, warm light similar to what you would usually see from a traditional, more energy hungry incandescent fixture.
Green Energy for Industrial and Commercial LED Applications?
Industrial and commercial lighting continue to rapidly evolve because of newly available technologies. Organizations are increasingly leveraging ultra efficient lighting like our LED series because of their long term energy savings, low maintenance and even their aesthetic appeal.
Additional Benefits of going LED:
- Superior Service Life
- Compounding Energy Savings
- Lower Maintenance Costs
- Excellent Light Control
- Constructed with more environmentally friendly materials than fluorescent
- No Mercury
- Easy On/off
- Produces less industrial waste during manufacture than fluorescent
Lumax Lighting raises the bar with LED fixtures made right here in the USA!
