In an effort to be more energy efficient and consciously aware of the impact of fluorescent lighting. MSP reviewed a full office and warehouse change to LED lighting to be more energy efficient and this year made our switch to LED lighting in all fixtures.
We found that LED lighting can use 50 to 60% less electricity than the traditional fluorescent bulbs. LED can also increase the lifespan of bulbs in fixtures by 2 to 3 times. LED also has increased the lighting in the warehouse, improving quality in picking parts.
The common four foot fluorescent tube has a lifespan of around 20,000 hours. The LED replacement has a lifespan of around 50,000 hours.
Therefore, upgrading to LED will eliminate fluorescent bulb waste and conserve electricity, lessening our impact on the environment.
