Lighting is a significant component of hospital energy use, representing more than 10 percent of energy consumption. Further, lighting boosts the demand for cooling because every watt of electricity used for lighting generates heat. LED lighting offers a significant energy saving potential, especially for corridors and general spaces in the hospital, reducing the operational cost of the hospital.LED lighting can also change the atmosphere in diagnosis areas and patient rooms, improving the hospital life for both patients and staff.
In addition, hospitals and healthcare facilities can finally be mercury free in all of their lighting due to the advancement in LED lighting. The hazards concerning the breakage and mercury contamination is no longer an issue.
