While lighting is easy to take for granted, lighting can consume a surprising amount of energy. Lighting accounts for about 11% of energy use in residential buildings and 18% in commercial buildings. This means if you're using the wrong lighting in your home or business, you could be wasting a large amount of money and energy without even realizing it. Here are a few types of energy efficient lighting you should consider using to help cut down on your electricity usage.
High powered LED lighting is one of the most efficient lighting options available today. This eco-friendly lighting option uses far less electricity than standard lightbulbs, while also producing a better output. High powered LED lighting can produce up to 85% more light output than standard halogen bulbs at 15% of the energy, making it an excellent option for areas that need to be extremely well lit.
Additionally, LED lighting tends to have a far longer lifespan than traditional bulbs. This means that not only do LED lights take less energy to use; they also need to be replaced and produced less frequently, taking up fewer resources in general. LED lights are a reasonably priced option and excellent for replacing your existing, wasteful lightbulbs.
Induction lighting, while not quite as well known as LED lighting, can be just as efficient if not more so. Induction lighting does not use many of the same components as traditional lighting, such as filaments or electrodes. As a result, these lights don't burn out in the same way as many other types of lighting, giving them extremely long lifespans. Because of how long they last, induction lighting is an excellent green option; since these unique lights don't need to be replaced nearly as often, fewer resources need to be used to make them.
