Did you know that lighting alone makes up about 12% of global grid based electricity consumption? That’s a lot of energy if you ask us. But if everyone makes the switch over to LEDs, you can see energy savings of up to 70%. Couple energy-efficient bulbs with smart lighting controls and savings could soar to 80%.

What’s more? Switching to LEDs can lead to an increased feeling of safety with white light, they provide a better working environment and increase performance both in learning and working! At CitiView Audio Visual, we have made the switch and boy are we glad we did!

Lighting is one of the most important aspects of your live event and LED lighting is not only the green choice, it’s the best choice! Contact us today at 212-632-5196 to learn more!

Make The Switch To LEDs!

Why switch to LEDs? The days of incandescent bulbs are over as more and more people are trading them up for LED bulbs. Longer lifespan, less energy and less heat are just a few of the many reasons to make the change. We switched, have you?

Less Energy 

LEDs produce far less heat than standard incandescent bulbs, therefore they endure much less heat loss. As a result they are more energy efficient, sometimes up to 85% more than the vacuum/filament method used in incandescents.

In addition to using less energy, you’ll use fewer bulbs. Tired of replacing your bulbs multiple times per year? Well, some LED bulbs can last up to 50,000 hours. That’s a long time if you ask us!

The Green Choice

We think the decision is simple, but if you’re still not convinced here are a few more benefits. Even though you may have spend a few more dollars upfront, LEDs can save you hundreds of dollars in the long run. Consider this: even if you spent $100 for a single bulb, you’ll only need one every 10-20 years. Spending less money on home lighting can save you about 7% on your electric bills which will be far more than the initial $100.

At CitiView Audio Visual, we’ve made the switch to LEDs. While still providing the quality and brightness you expect from exceptional stage lighting, LED lighting is not only the green choice, it’s the best choice. So give us a call the next time you’re hosting an event, and let us take care of the lighting!
