Shopping malls are prevalent in every city across the globe. The close-unit construction style of shopping malls does not leave any chance to make use of the broad natural sunlight. The entire lighting arrangements of these shopping malls run on electrical power. With the ever-increasing number of shopping malls with their huge electric power consumption is creating an irreparable dent on the global energy storage. Out of only a few solutions to this issue, one is shifting to LED lights from other conventional lighting technologies.
Here are a good number of reasons why shifting to LED lighting in the shopping malls would be beneficial from every respect.
Eco-Friendly with No Emission
Conventional lighting diodes are known to emit lower levels of output that takes out the brightness over a very long period of time. On the other hand, the LEDs are able to maintain their original brightness through their entire lifespan. Moreover, the LED lights do not contain any toxic materials and are fully recyclable. Using LED lighting would help reduce the carbon footprint of any business. Hence, one can calculate, how much reduction of carbon footprint can take place if all the shopping malls choose LED lighting over other incandescent light bulbs.
Above all, the LED illumination process produce little or no infrared light and UV emissions. This makes LED lighting highly suitable for goods that are heat UV-sensitive like artwork and plastic items like toys or kitchen accessories.
For LED illumination even a low-voltage power supply would be sufficient, that makes it all the more economical in every sense.
Best for the Parking Zones
Every shopping mall has big parking zones mostly at their basements or other covered areas. LED area and parking lot lights would always be a better idea as the lights are always kept on in the parking zones to ensure better security and convenience. As the parking areas of shopping malls will be always big it would require sufficient lights at every important point. LED lights that are quickly illuminating, long lasting, consuming lesser power and emits almost no UV or infrared light, they can save on so much energy in the parking lots while producing enough brightness to the otherwise gloomy parking slots.
LED lights can be expected to deliver a continuous operational span of 11 years and nearly 22 years when it is operated with 50% intervals. Leaving on an LED fixture for 8 hours every day would take nearly 20 years before you need to change the LED bulb. As LED lights are not made out of glass and has hollow inside, they become conditioned to low maintenance and are able to survive harsh conditions. This makes LEDs perfect for the lighting systems in shopping malls especially because of their longer hours of operation and the amount of lighting each of these malls are having.
In the odd hours of global warming and worldwide shortage of electrical power generation, shopping malls shifting to LED lights especially if clubbed with solar energy, would contribute a lot to the saving of power and energy that we need to preserve for our next generation.
