Simply installing ceiling LED lights can transform your home or business. Yet, LEDs have many varied applications that not only save you money but also create a brighter space! One particular type of business that can utilize the multitude of products LEDs have to offer is convenient stores! Today we are diving into the many ways gas stations and convenient stores can use LEDs in creative and money-saving ways.
LED Ceiling Lights
One of the most obvious uses for LED lighting in convenient stores is ceiling lighting. By replacing those old fluorescent tubes and ballasts with LED retrofit linear lamps, your store will look brighter and cleaner instantly! Plus, LEDs use up to 75 percent less energy than traditional bulbs, saving you money every month on your utility bill!
LED Outdoor Signage
Convenient stores often use large, lit up signs to let drivers know where to exit for gas and a much needed snack. These signs are also often seen with burnout bulbs. LEDs are a great option for outdoor signage, as they have a lifespan of over 50,000 hours, cost less money to operate, and perform well in hot and cold weather. Fluorescent bulbs typically used in large outdoor signs do not perform well in cold weather, taking a long time to warm up before even turning on. LEDs are instant-on in any weather!
LED Cooler Lights
LED cooler lights out perform fluorescent cooler lights in a number of ways. First, as mentioned above, they perform well in cold environments, arguably better. Secondly, they do not put off nearly as much heat as traditionally cooler bulbs, meaning your coolers won’t have to work as hard to maintain their proper temperature. This saves you double your money on energy usage! Lastly, LED lights are better for products stored in coolers. LEDs give off no UV rays, making them a better option for cold food and drink storage.
LED Motion Sensor Lights
Convenient stores are just that, convenient. This means remaining open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Leaving on lights constantly can be a large burden to your energy bill. When you install LEDs in your convenient store, you’ll find the money saved on your energy bill will pay for the cost of the bulbs over time! You can also double down on those savings by installing LED motion sensor lights in lesser used areas, such as the kitchen or bathrooms.
LED Security Lights
Remaining open 24/7, 365 days a year has it’s perks for travelers, but it can be daunting to pull into a poorly lit convenient store lot in the middle of the night. By installing LED outdoor security lights, you make it easier for travelers to find you, as well as make them feel safe and secure. You can even install these security lights with motion sensors!
