The Benefits Of LED Lighting For Commercial And Residential Properties

June 02, 2023

Looking to add a little brightness to your home or business? LED lighting is the perfect option for you. Brighter, whiter and much more energy efficient than traditional bulbs, LED lighting comes with loads of benefits.

Many commercial and residential property owners have already switched the bulk of their lights to LED, so here are some of the biggest perks of following suit:

Energy efficiency

The greatest benefit of LED lighting for commercial and residential properties lies in energy efficiency. LED lights are up to 60% more energy efficient than incandescent bulbs, drastically reducing your power consumption. Switching to LED lighting is actually one of the best things you can do for the environment. 5% of the world’s carbon emissions are produced by lighting, so if everyone were to switch to LED lighting and reduce their impact by 60%, it would make a huge difference to global carbon emission output.

Cost reduction

LED lighting isn’t just better for the environment – it’s better for your wallet, too. 60% more energy efficiency means 60% less money spent on lighting. For homes, that’s a huge saving in its own right, but for commercial properties like offices and warehouses, there’s potentially thousands of dollars to be saved.


Often there’s a catch with cheaper alternatives, and it’s usually that they don’t last as long. LED lights are the exact opposite; they’re actually more durable than incandescent bulbs! The average lifespan on an LED bulb is around 25,000 hours – that’s twenty times more than the average lifespan of an incandescent bulb. Not only are you cutting down on your power bills, but you’re replacing your bulbs less often as well.

Better quality lighting

LED provides better quality lighting in terms of brightness, colour rendering and uniformity than incandescent bulbs. LED lights are brighter yet more efficient than traditional incandescent bulbs, allowing for clearer vision for daily tasks at home or in the office.

Minimal heat production

LED lights are better in terms of brightness than incandescent bulbs, yet they produce very little heat. Incandescent bulbs, on the other hand, convert around 90% of their energy to heat. Take this equation and put it in a large office or warehouse during the summer, and you drive your air conditioning consumption through the roof. LED lights save you money in this area too.


And the beautiful thing about LED lights is that they can be used anywhere: bathrooms, kitchens, office corridors, outdoor areas – you name it.
