Find out why contractors are implementing LED technology in their new construction projects.

Recently, the use of LED technology has gained new popularity among contractors. With the capability to significantly reduce the finished project’s energy costs, it’s no wonder that this tech has become a favorite with commercial construction in the Bay Area.  Curious to learn more?  Then here are some of the benefits of implementing LED tech in new commercial construction projects.

1) Energy Efficiency

LED lights are 90% more energy efficient than traditional light bulbs.  When you choose LED over standard incandescent bulbs, then you cut down on wasted electricity by approximately 50%.  So, by choosing the invest in this technology, you can rest assured knowing that your completed project is environmentally conscious.

2) Increased Savings

As previously mentioned, LED technology also leads to savings once the building is completed.  While LED lights are more expensive than traditional lights, they deliver savings that more than make up for this initial investment.  In fact, LED technology has the potential to save $15 billion per year by 2030.  With its incredible ability to increase savings, it’s no wonder why LEDs are so popular.

3) Improved Longevity

Finally, LED bulbs last far longer than standard incandescent bulbs.  An LED bulb can last between 30,000 and 50,000 hours, while a traditional bulb has a lifespan of about 1,000 hours.  Additionally, LED bulbs are designed in a way that prevents them from simply dying like a normal bulb.  Instead, LED bulbs gradually begin to dim, announcing the need for replacement.  LED bulbs are also more durable and hold up better than standard bulbs to vibration and impact.  This too increases their longevity.

These are some of the reasons why LED technology is enjoying so much popularity in new commercial construction in the Bay Area.  Looking for a contracting firm familiar with all the newest trends to handle your next building project?  Then turn to the experts at Proforma Construction.  Serving Pleasanton and the surrounding California area, our highly-trained team is ready to make your commercial construction dreams a reality.  Contact us to get started today.
