LED lights and traditional lights also differ in labor costs.
In certain commercial buildings, such as industry, the lighting is often mounted on a high ceiling. This makes it difficult to replace the lamps or panels yourself. They often need the help of a hired mechanic with a passenger elevator that also has to be paid for. If, on the other hand, you take over the exchange yourself, you may lose valuable (working) time. But LED lights hardly require maintenance, so this part of the labor cost can be saved.
While conventional lamps often lose their luminosity after approx. 3,000 hours or they go completely defective, LEDs last 50,000-100,000 hours, depending on the model. What does that mean specifically for you? A short calculation example:
If we assume that your lights are on for 60 hours a week during regular business operations, that would be around 3,000 hours for 52 weeks a year. With a service life of 20,000 hours, you benefit from your LEDs for around 6 years, and with 100,000 hours even for over 30 years! Conventional lamps with a lifespan of 1 year, on the other hand, are very disadvantageous.
Switching to LED lights is worthwhile in several ways and will save you a lot of money in the long term.
