Why hospitals lead switch
to LEDs

More and more hospital and patient care facilities are complying with the 2006 AIA Guidelines for Design and Construction of Hospital and Health Care Facilities that requires the elimination of mercury from their fluorescent, CFL, HID and other lighting applications.

Their recommendations to use LED lighting is not only safe and toxic free, socially responsible as it is better for the environment - and it generates a huge savings in energy costs!!! An average of 50% of the hospital's electric bill.

Hospitals are often stressed for funds especially in today's economic climate. Hospital wards, operation theaters, hallways, parking lots need round the clock, good quality illumination. Hundreds of thousands of dollars are needed to fund the lighting electricity bills alone - so switching to LED lighting can be a major budget saver!

Financing may be available to relieve the burden of the up front bulb replacement costs, enabling the hospital to pay over time from the reduction in electric bills.


LED Lighting - Typical Energy Cost Savings


 

Who saves the most.


The amount of money to be saved by switching to LED lighting varies according to electricity consumption and the % of that consumption in lighting. Biggest savings tend to be for hospitals since they must leave a considerable percentage of their lights on 24 / 7. Retailers that are open long hours and seven days a week come in second.
