In the lighting world today, education is key, especially as LED products are improving at the speed of well, light. The more you know about these innovations, the more you can avoid lighting inconsistencies, reduce energy consumption, lower utility bills, improve safety, and increase productivity.
LEDs are dramatically better than fluorescent lights. They have a longer lifespan, emit brighter light, offer a smaller footprint, and most importantly, consume less energy. That’s why many states have created incentive programs to encourage businesses to make the switch to LEDs.
Steam systems often go unnoticed as big energy wasters. Steam trap failures can easily occur and go unnoticed. Like any mechanical system which moves, parts will wear and/or break. However, the steam system will still provide heat, so red flags don’t go up—but energy dollars go out the door!
