I recently had a few conversations with a customer about the benefits of upgrading to LED lighting. We talked a few times to work through some of the objections he had to making the switch. By the end of our meeting, he understood how important it is to upgrade to LED and signed the paperwork to start the process. I want to help you overcome any hurdles you may think you’re facing when it comes to switching your facility lights to LED.
Here’s the top 3 reasons I’ve found that people are hesitant to save money by switching to LED lighting:
1. “We don’t have money for upfront costs”
Now more than ever, LED lighting is an affordable option. Utility companies are offering generous amounts of incentive money for businesses to make the switch to LED. Combine incentive money, competitive LED prices, and a company dedicated to saving you money off your energy bill and BAM, here’s Integra LED.
With an ROI goal of 3 years or less, it’s hard to make the argument that switching to LED isn’t an imperative investment. There are financing options of 12 & 24 months for 0% interest, throw in a few 36-month offerings and you’ve got a no brainer. Switching to LED doesn’t have to cost you money out of pocket, you need an open mind with some willingness to listen to the options available to your business.
2. “There’s no extra time for installation”
Not wanting the installation of your new, money saving LED lighting to impact your daily business is a reasonable request.
Luckily, I’ve got a few solutions for you. Integra LED’s installers can work almost undetectably during regular business hours. We can also install overnight, on weekends, or during manufacturing shut downs. We will work with you to ensure your business will maintain a regular flow of operations.
3. “We don’t believe the energy savings will have a great enough impact”
Okay, I get it. I show up and tell you all the brilliant benefits to LED lighting & show how drastically your lighting bill will drop. Somehow, you’re not buying it…yet.
Our engineers perform an on-site lighting assessment by counting every light inside and outside of the building. Then, using your utility bill, run time hours, and current lighting, they come up with an energy saving number. LED works with the utility company to make sure their projections are correct. Checks and balances.
It’s simple math. If you’re taking a 32-watt, T8 bulb and dropping it down to a 10-watt, T8 bulb, you’ve just saved 22 watts of energy every time you turn on the fixture. No magic, just math.
Bottom line: Switching to LED lighting will save your business money on their energy bill, providing lighting that will last from 10-25 years, and help the environment. Be the one who helps your business save thousands of dollars on their utility bills. Take the first step by scheduling your free energy assessment.
