Quality LEDs with Long Warranties Reduce Energy Costs for Your Home and Business
Good Energy Solutions is your source for quality LEDs that last. At $.11/kWh and 12 hours per day, LEDs will pay for themselves in about 1 year, and require no replacement costs for 5 years.
LED lights are becoming more popular and easily found at most big box stores. Good technology and affordable pricing have come together enabling consumers to afford top quality LED lamps and fixtures at a reasonable price.
LEDs at Home:
Consumers in the residential market can now benefit by lowering their monthly bills without compromising aesthetics. LED lights are now available in a variety of shapes including the appearance of an incandescent light bulb. LEDs also come in a variety of color temperatures (warm, sunlight, natural, cool) to create the perfect atmosphere for home use.
LEDs for Business:
The benefits for commercial business owners are even more appealing. LEDs are very compatible with retrofits/redesigns providing a fresh look to a building while simultaneously reducing the electric bill. Not only do LEDs require less energy to light up a business they also generate very low heat resulting in an additional savings in cooling costs. Finally, because LEDs rarely need to be replaced, building maintenance costs are lowered as well.
We Sell and Install LEDs that have longer warranties than most LEDs on the market.
When applicable, Good Energy Solutions may encourage for a commercial property the use of a patented LED that directs light in a more consistent luminous manner. Light is directed evenly toward the work surface eliminating dark areas in-between lights common to other manufacturers LEDs. Users can expect 100,000 hours (equivalent to 12 hours a day for 23 years) of LED life. Patented LEDs are shown to have a longer lifespan than competitors products and therefor are fully warranted for 5 years.
What are LEDs and How do they Reduce Energy Costs in Commercial Business and at Home?
LEDs are now incorporated into bulbs and fixtures for general lighting applications. Most LED bulb solutions have been engineered to look like familiar light bulbs and produce equal or better quality lighting. Lights come in a variety of colors to create the feeling of warmth for residential applications. In addition, for commercial applications there are a variety of sizes and designs to retrofit existing commercial lighting fixtures.
LEDs are “directional” light sources which means they emit light in a specific direction, unlike incandescent and compact fluorescent bulbs which emit light – and heat – in all directions. For this reason, LED lighting is able to use light and energy more efficiently in many applications.
Life of an LED
The useful life of LED lighting products is defined differently than that of other light sources, such as incandescent or CFL. This is because LEDs typically do not “burn out” or fail. Instead, they experience lumen depreciation, where the amount of light produced decreases and light color appearance can shift over time. Instead of basing the useful life of an LED product on the time it takes for 50% of a large group of lamps to burn out (as is the case with traditional sources), LED product “lifetime” is set based on a prediction of when the light output decreases 30 percent.
Virtually no heat created by LEDs, which means less cooling costs.
Incandescent bulbs produce light using electricity to heat a metal filament until it becomes “white” hot or is said to incandesce. As a result, incandescent bulbs release 90% of their energy as heat. LEDs create almost zero heat.
In a CFL, an electric current flows between electrodes at each end of a tube containing gases. This reaction produces ultraviolet (UV) light and heat. The UV light is transformed into visible light when it strikes a phosphor coating on the inside of the bulb.
Before July 14, 2012 most commercially-available Fluorescent T12 lamps were too inefficient to meet energy standards and were banned from manufacturing or importation for distribution in commerce. 4-foot medium bipin, 2-foot U-shaped, 8-foot slimline, 8-foot high output, 4-foot miniature bipin standard output, and 4-foot miniature bipin high output GSFLs were all subjected to amendment to meet energy conservation standards.
1 Watt per Square Foot2
Across the nation, many municipalities and government entities have implemented a strict 1 Watt per Square Foot requirement for Commercial Lighting Installations.
This can not be achieved with T-8 bulbs and still provide the OSHA standard for commercial lighting!
Quality LED Products: Not all LEDs are made the same.
Good Energy Solutions offers a variety of LEDs so that we can provide you with the lighting solution that best meets your needs.
We have access to LEDs that last longer than those offered in most big box stores. Users can expect 100,000 hours (equivalent to 12 hours a day for 23 years) of LED life and a 5-year warranty because the patented LEDs run cooler. Plus, the patented system provides a consistent luminous light that is equivalent to the light quality of fluorescents. You may find cheaper LED replacements on the market but none that are as cool.
Patented LEDs provide consistent luminous light directed toward the work surface eliminating wasted light. Consistent light illuminates the entire room instead of leaving dim areas in between light fixtures like other brands.
• Consistent light because of patented system
• Over 85% reduction in facility costs
• Reduce HVAC load
• Full 5 year parts & labor warranty
• American made Retrofittable – less waste.
• Reuse Current Fixture: Retrofittable for 2×4, 2×2 and 1×4 Troffers
• Quick and easy installation – No soldering required
• Universal (120–277 VAC) Input Power Supply – Replaceable Practical Considerations
• Instant ON, efficient even in LOW temp.
• Eliminate “hum” and flicker of fluorescents
• Multiple Color Temp. Options (Warm, Sunlight, Natural, Cool)
• Potentially contribute toward LEED certification for GSA buildings.
Are LEDs affordable?
Some utility companies are offering energy rebate programs to encourage commercial businesses to make the switch to LEDs. Good Energy Solutions can help you determine if your business qualifies for rebates or incentive programs. Even without an energy program the cost benefit can prove positive when taking into consideration less maintenance and reduction in HVAC costs. Let us inspect your property to determine which type of LEDs would be most beneficial for your business. Contact us for more information on LEDs.
