The Benefits of Commercial Induction Lighting in Hendersonville NC

Commercial outdoor lighting is getting better and better all of the time. With gains in the technology behind energy-saving solutions like LED outdoor lighting and induction outdoor lighting the future is looking bright. Commercial clients are always looking for ways to save money and be environmentally responsible, induction lighting can meet both of those goals.

COMMERCIAL OUTDOOR LIGHTING HISTORY

Historically speaking, commercial outdoor lighting needs have been met with inefficient HID (high intensity discharge) lighting. HID lighting was never about how good it looked, ranking very low on the CRI (color rendering index). The yellowish light that was cast in the area they illuminate immediately reminds you of the lighting in a night scene in an 80’s crime drama. When used in commercial grade high pressure sodium lamps the yellow light is even more apparent. The yellow light does not offer much in the way of clarity, whereas white light is much clearer for truer rendering of color and detail. Induction lighting can provide this increased clarity with nice white light.

WHAT IS INDUCTION LIGHTING?

The basics of induction lighting can be best understood when starting with a typical fluorescent lamp. Remove the electrodes and change the way a fluorescent lamp works and you’ve got yourself an induction light. Fluorescent lamps create light by using electrical connections, whereas induction lamps create light by transferring energy through electromagnetic fields. The science is interesting but the result is the most important part: crisp, clear white light that renders truer while it saves you money and has less impact on the environment.
