Why choose LED lighting?
LEDs are 90% more efficient than incandescent lights. This reduced energy cost saves a tremendous amount of money, especially in commercial lighting applications.
Because LED lasts significantly longer than traditional lighting, LED lights require much less maintenance than standard or fluorescent lights.
Gateway LED is happy to provide an exact ROI analysis to determine how much you will save by installing LED lights. Simply complete our free LED lighting analysis.
Are LED lights dangerous?
Unlike fluorescent lights, LED lights do not contain mercury. They are manufactured without the use of hazardous materials and are in fact recyclable. LED lights also produce much less heat than incandescent lights and are safe to handle, even when they’ve been left on for a significant length of time.
Because of their much longer lifespan, they are perfect lighting for any location that is difficult to reach or high up. The less often someone must climb a ladder to change a bulb, the fewer the accidents!
Why are LED lights more expensive than incandescent bulbs?
LED lights are electronic devices, much like a computer or an iPad. Even in the past 7 years, LED light prices have dropped by as much as 85%. While they may be initially more expensive than an incandescent bulb, this cost is more than offset in energy and maintenance savings. Our ROI Analysis will show you the savings over the life of the LED light compared with the initial cost of LED and how much more your light costs in that same span of time.
Is LED light different than light from other sources?
LED light is a gentler, safer light. There is no flickering, no UV rays, and much less heat. LEDs are now produced in a variety of colors, from bright white to softer, indoor lighting. These choices weren’t available until relatively recently.
Are there subsidies available for switching to LED lights?
Yes, Ameren is still offering incentives for converting to LED lighting. As an Ameren Trade Ally, Gateway LED is happy to handle this paperwork for you complimentary with purchase of our lighting.
These credits can either be applied to your future electric bills, or they can be used to offset the cost of installation – it’s your choice. Call Gateway LED today to discuss Ameren U.E. credits and how these can reduce the cost of switching to LED lighting.
