Benefits Of Troffer Lights
A troffer is a rectangular or square light fixture that typically fits into a modular dropped ceiling grid, often described as “recessed." Historically, troffer fixtures have been designed to accommodate standard fluorescent lamps like T12 or T8 bulbs. However, now troffer lighting is available in LED. Below we will look at three primary benefits to using this technology in your facility.
LED Troffer Light Energy Savings
LED lighting can really move the needle in reducing the consumption of electricity for your building or facility. If we look at specific wattages, a typical 2x4 fluorescent troffer light can utilize up to 160 watts per fixture. If we examine the same fixture utilizing LED technology instead, we see that the same fixture utilizes between 30 and 50 watts per fixture. This results in a 50% to 80% reduction in cost savings just by making the switch to LED.
To put this in dollars, by converting your lighting to LED you could save up to $81 per fixture, per year in energy costs alone. Depending on the size of your facility this can really add up over time.
Lighting Maintenance Cost Reduction
The way LEDs generate light and progress through their functional life results in a much longer operating life compared to conventional fluorescent troffer lights. LED troffer lifetimes range from 50,000 to 150,000 hours and can have up to a 10 year manufacturer warranty.
Since LED light fixtures are not negatively affected by frequent on/off cycles, maintenance costs are reduced in those environments when the LED ceiling lights are used. For a typical warehouse lighting or commercial lighting space with multiple 2x4 LED troffers, end users can expect to realize up to $2,952 in maintenance cost savings over the course of three years.
Upgrading to LED can help you cut up to 80% on your energy bill. Flat panels have been extremely popular choices in offices, retail facilities, basements, and even garages. They are particularly ideal for replacing in-ceiling troffers, and they come in many common grid sizes like 1x4, 2x2 Troffer, and 2x4. New technology has allowed for edge-lit flat panels to be thinner and more versatile than ever, down to a half inch for some models.
