As more and more people travel locally and around the world, the hospitality industry is busier than ever. Hotel managers can give their guests a great experience and save money on energy and maintenance costs by using LED lighting. People want to feel safe in a comfortable space because resting and eating are two intimate things that go hand in hand.
Advantages of Upgrading to LEDs in Hotels
Since the kind of lighting can affect how a customer feels, it is important to pay attention to how guests see and feel at the hotel. It’s also important to think about lighting as part of the hotel’s interior design and not ignore it, since lighting can help create a nice atmosphere. Hotel LED lighting can make a building look even better by drawing attention to its best features and making customers and guests feel welcome and at ease. The way the outside of your business looks can make or break a sale. As a hotel manager, you want to be easy to spot and different from the other hotels around you. Here are five of the most important reasons why hotels should use LED lighting.
Hotels always have their lights on. But LED lighting is always getting cheaper, which is good for properties in the hospitality industry that want to save energy and cut down on waste. Because LED bulbs last longer, businesses can buy less of them and change them less often. Even though the LED bulb costs more at first, the hotel will get its money back much faster than if it bought and installed incandescent or fluorescent bulbs. LEDs use 300 times less energy than fluorescent lighting and 1,000 times less than incandescent light bulbs.
Along with these cost savings, energy bills will go down by a lot. Only two-thirds of the energy is used by an LED bulb compared to an incandescent bulb. LEDs can also save money by making it so hotel maintenance staff don’t have to change bulbs as often. Hotels that have LED lighting and other eco-friendly features may get more people to stay there. People are more likely to buy from businesses that use “green” or environmentally friendly methods. LED lighting is one way to cut down on the amount of energy a property uses.
Colour Options for LED Lights
In the past, LEDs could only make certain colors of light, called “temperatures,” and the only ones they could make were white and red. Now, though, there are more choices, such as blue lights. This gives managers a lot of options for how to set the mood in each room. The owners of a hotel can even choose to change the color of the light based on the time of day. For example, an LED light in a hotel lobby could give off bright, white light during the day. At night, though, that same light bulb could change to a cool blue light. But hotel owners need to know their temperatures because the color of an LED light can really make or break a room.
The durability of LED light sources makes them a valuable asset. The best LED lights on the market have a lifespan of 10 years or more. Fewer lights and fixtures will be thrown out over time if their lifespans are increased. Their longevity is a result of their sturdy construction and high level of durability. In addition to their precise electrical power supply (drivers), LEDs include heat diffusers that keep them from becoming too hot.
Reduced maintenance costs correlate with increased durability. Aside from having a lifespan that is nearly 20 times shorter than that of LED bulbs, incandescent bulbs also have a 90% lower efficiency rating.
For their high lumen output, LED lights are a popular choice for lighting hotels’ outside areas. LEDs installed outside provide pedestrian safety for both customers and staff. The high visibility of the lights serves to deter any illegal conduct. One of the most important features of a hotel’s initial impression is its accessibility, particularly at night. After hours, or even days, of travel, visitors need to be able to quickly see the hotel. If, on the other hand, the building is difficult to identify from the street, visitors will automatically assume the worst and prepare themselves for a disappointing stay.
Hotels that use bright LED lighting not only stand out from competitors, but also get their visitors off on the right foot by making it simple for them to find their way to the location.
The lighting indoors is just as important as the lighting outdoors. Amenities like gyms, pools, and activity rooms should feel lively, get people moving, and make people feel safe. How customers feel about hotel restaurants depends a lot on how well they are lit. If the lighting is poor, spotty, or inconsistent, guests might think that the food and service were also not very good.
LED lighting can give hotel owners the elegant solution they’re looking for while also meeting the needs of their guests.
LED lights are being used by more lighting architects and designers to make spaces that are both unique and inviting for guests. Fluorescent bulbs and incandescent bulbs both give off a kind of light that many people now find unpleasant. LEDs can be put into a lighting design so that they look just like traditional incandescent bulbs. This means that they can be used in both classic and modern designs. With LED lighting solutions, you can make your atrium, entrance, and foyer more inviting.
