You get out, What you put in….

urlacher-and-peppersI read this Tweet from retired NFL Player Brian Urlacher  at  talking to that Little voice in his stomach.

As a native of Chicago, Brian Urlacher is someone I follow on Twitter, and his Tweets are entertaining sometimes. The saying above kinda rang true for us at M Lite Solutions.

 

We feel that building owners get out what they put into it. You see building owners that want to save money, and upgrade to LED fixtures will save 60 to 80% in energy reduction just by doing the right thing and investing in themselves with energy efficient lighting by M-Lites.com.

100 LED High Bays can save in many ways…

Upgrading 100 400 watt Metal Halide fixtures to 150 watt LED High Bays will save our client in Mchenry, IL. in many ways. Let’s begin with the “Cost of Waiting”.

As you can see from the chart above the cost of waiting per year is $21,000 in annual savings. For every month they do not change out their lighting, it would end up costing them $1700 per month. The cost of the goods without labor is almost $38,000, which means our warehouse client in McHenry, IL. will hit a rate on return of investment within 2 years time. This is the type of cost effective savings a business owner can get out what they put in.

 McHenry Warehouse Environmental Impact

Although the world’s climate changes happen naturally. We contribute to the pollution of the environment more than any other living thing on our planet. So many  people are finally wondering how they can help reduce the emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and changing your lighting to LED can reduce plenty (see the chart above). Since change will not happen overnight, lighting is a definite step that we can take in this fight against global warming.

Going Green with LED Lighting makes sense for all of us. Let M-Lite show you how you can do your part and start saving the world one light at a time. For more information visit us on-line at M-Lites.com

What are the benefits of LED – Light Emitting Diodes?

LED Lighting Benefits

Light Emitting Diodes (LED) are almost unstoppable in terms of lighting efficiency and durability, which make them incredibly resourceful for our sustainable future.  They are stylish and cool in many ways, they have such outstanding performance properties that they offer a whole series of practical benefits, including providing healthier light that even improves our moods and a higher blue light that create more tasked focused students and employees. They are more durable, cost efficient, and are environmentally friendly. LED lighting is truly a creative technology, which rightly deserves the title of “Most Innovative Product” in our ERA.

For all purpose lighting illumination, Our M-Lite Solution LED lighting products provide outstanding light, which are already being used commercial, and residential lighting applications. As far as atmospheric lighting is concerned, the multi-colored changing LED lights give inventors like David Rozek enormous creative freedom for outdoor, and indoor LED lighting. These innovative LED lights range from special lamps for military applications, the entertainment industry, and film industry, which inventor David Rozek, and staff are currently building for the next generation of LED lighting.

1. Low Energy Consumption: LED lighting has significantly reduced energy consumption without sacrificing functional efficiency and visual performance. An incandescent bulb is only able to transform 20% of the electricity that it requires into light energy, with the other 80% being given off as heat. when it comes to LED lights they do just the opposite, 80% of the electrical energy is emitted as light energy and only 20% is released as heat. Some M-Lite LED products offer 95% of its energy into to light, and as little as 5%  release of heat.

LEDs are also utilized with various lighting control technology which contributes significantly to energy savings. LEDs are fully dimmable with the right driver provided by M-Lite, and are easily incorporated into circuits with a variety of sensors, including daylight harvesting sensors, or Human Centric Lighting.

2. Long Life Expectancy: LEDs are also known for having a long life expectancy, especially when compared to incandescent and fluorescent lighting. A LED light can last up to 100,000 hours at full use, which adds up to 11 years of 100% usage. With 50% usage, a LED lamp can last for 22 years. This is a vast improvement to an incandescent lamp’s operational life, which is approximately 5,000 hours if you are lucky.

The LED’s longevity also allows for unparalleled cost effectiveness, since it reduces maintenance costs and the need for regular bulb replacement. This feature is especially useful if lighting is required in areas that are hard to reach.

3. Durability: LEDs are very durable and resilient, and are the choice lighting solutions for areas that require rugged use. Because they don’t have a fragile glass encasement and do not require a filament to function, LEDs can take a lot of jarring and bumping and still maintain their ability to function at peak efficiency. They are known for being resistant to heat, cold and shock.

Because of this particular LED feature, LEDs are they also developed for rugged use in underwater environments, and for exterior and outdoor lighting solutions. This current generation of LED lighting can be exposed to the elements and will maintain a high-performance visually in rugged environments.

4. A Cool Lighting Solution: LEDs are cool – literally. LEDs only emit a small amount of heat compared to other lighting. The LED’s ability to not cause heat build ups works to the benefit of AC units, which translates to added energy savings and cost effectiveness. Which in turn helps maintain a comfortable environment for people during hot, and muggy weather.

A little lighting change can mean a lot.

5. Sustainability and Green Lighting: LED is currently the favored solution for sustainable or green lighting products.  It does not contain any toxic material (e.g. mercury or neon), which makes it environmentally friendly and easier to dispose of than fluorescent lighting. LEDs do produce a very small amount of UV light, but they emit even less than an incandescent light bulb. That is because the amount of UV that it produces is converted to white light by the phosphors inside the lamp.

Because an LED has a very long operational lifespan, it lessens wattage as it does not require regular bulb replacement. LED lighting also features an unparalleled capacity for energy savings, which is a major concern for sustainable design.

6. LEDs do not attract bugs: LEDs offer relief from another problem—insects. UV light attracts insects. With virtually no UV emissions, M-Lites LED lighting products do not attract bugs, and that has made our LED Lighting products very popular in commercial food service industry and exterior building installations of M-Lite Solution lighting where it’s important to minimize the attraction of pesky insects.

Because of these many combinations of truly innovative features M-Lite Solution LED lighting products are becoming the leading choice for those opting for sustainable design and green lighting solutions World Wide. Our LED lighting solutions offer maximum lighting performance and cost effectiveness without the harmful byproducts that come with traditional lighting solutions. LED lighting is simply your best option, and are more affordable than ever with M-Lite’s LED Lighting Solutions.
