Benefits of LEDs for Retail Stores
LEDs have several benefits when used in the retail environment. For one, they can help the store reduce energy usage and maintenance cost, plus they’re more effective in illuminating products being displayed. Retail stores that are owned independently usually pay for their own utility expenses, so LED lights help with cutting energy cost up to 75 percent from common incandescent lights and dramatically reduce the electricity bill. They also produce very little heat which helps save in the running costs of air conditioning.
Low Maintenance Maintenance savings is also another big benefit that LED lights give. Most stores have track light systems to highlight their products, which are actually effective. These lights also work as the general light source for the shop, but since retail stores have a lot of areas that need accenting or highlighting, a few extra lamps will be needed to achieve the right look.
This means that the store not only has to pay for maintenance for the track light, but as well as the accent and highlight bulbs. LED bulbs last 25 times longer compared to incandescent bulbs and 5 times longer compared to CFLs. Their long life span helps save a number of replacement bulbs.
Better at Highlighting It’s not all about saving energy and lowering maintenance cost, LEDs are also known for their aesthetic benefits. LED bulbs give out a better light output which is great for products being displayed in retail settings.
A number of these bulbs have a high CRI or color rendering index which helps make the actual color of the product stand out. They also have better flexibility when it comes to beam control, color temperature, and lumen output. These bulbs can help give you focused, efficient and high color rendering lights to emphasis the merchandise.
