Here’s why you should be using LEDs in your hotel.
LED lighting has become increasingly popular over the last several years. As these bulbs tend to last 50 times longer and require less electricity than their incandescent counterparts, their rise in popularity isn’t much of a surprise. However, while many have taken to incorporating this lighting option into their homes, hotels have been less motivated to make the switch to LED. If you are still dragging your feet, consider these benefits that come when you use LED lighting in your hotel property.
Because LED bulbs last so much longer that traditional light bulbs, properties use fewer bulbs overall. While LED bulbs do cost more than standard bulbs, your hotel can quickly recover the return on investment due to the longevity of LEDs. In addition to these savings, LED bulbs also require less electricity than standard bulbs, which will result in a reduction of your property’s energy bills.
Increased Color Options
In the past, LEDs could only emit certain shades of light and temperatures. However, LEDs now come in a wider variety of colors and temperatures. This increased range allows hoteliers to select certain colored bulbs to create different ambiances from room to room. In fact, some LEDs even have the ability to change color on command, allowing hoteliers to adjust the shade of light emitted depending on the time of day. This customizability allows for an individualized lighting experience that you simply cannot achieve with standard bulbs.
Lighting Up Exterior Spaces
Finally, because LEDs are particularly known for emitting bright light, they make for a great lighting option for outdoor spaces. Not only will this bright light allow your guests and your staff move around more safely during the evening hours, but the bright light that LEDs produce can also help ward off criminal activity that would otherwise take place in the shadows of your hotel’s outdoor property.
These are some of the ways in which switching over to LED lights will benefit your hotel. Want another way to improve your hotel property?
