In light of this trend (pun intended), HON has added many LED lighting choices to its product portfolio over the past few years. We offer LED and fluorescent under-cabinet lighting, as well as LED desktop lights.
An initial comparison between LED and fluorescent under-cabinet lighting will reveal a difference in price between the two. While LED lighting does cost more upfront, the long-term cost savings make these options an easy choice over their fluorescent counterparts.
Here are examples of how LED can be a more cost effective solution long-term:
- Almost Twice the Lifespan: HON’s LED light bulbs have a 50,000 hour lifespan, as compared to the fluorescent’s 30,000 hour lifespan.
- Optional Occupancy Sensor: LED lights come with an optional occupancy sensor. The occupancy sensor can lower an energy bill by automatically turning the light off after 30 minutes of inactivity.
- Energy Efficient: LED lights are more energy efficient, as they generate 6 more lumens per watt than our fluorescent lights*.
- Dimming Capability: A soft touch panel on the LED light allows users to adjust light output to their own preference. Fluorescent lights can only be turned ON/OFF with no adjustment. Dimming reduces light output, resulting in a reduction of energy consumption.
