OSRAM SYLVANIA Helping Restaurants, Hotels And Casinos Lower Costs With Energy-Efficient LED Lightin

DANVERS, Mass. /PRNewswire/ — Ideal for the hospitality industry, North American lighting leader OSRAM SYLVANIA is offering a full portfolio of SYLVANIA ULTRA 25™ LED lamps that offer energy and cost savings and the inviting 2500K color temperature that creates a warm, relaxing atmosphere for customers. The ULTRA 25 LED portfolio includes lamp types most often found in ambient, accent and decorative luminaires in hospitality settings. These energy efficient replacements for traditional incandescent and halogen lamps offer up to 86 percent energy savings, are phase-cut dimmable down to 10 percent and have a rated lamp life of up to 25,000 hours (L70). Being able to use the various lamp types, all with the same 2500K color temperature, across a facility offers consistent light quality rather than having jarring differences in appearance. This creates a soothing atmosphere and content customers that want to come back.

Setting a Mood for Repeat Business, Cost Savings

Lighting has a dramatic effect on how a restaurant, hotel or casino is perceived by customers. The right lighting creates an atmosphere that welcomes guests, enhances their visit and invites them to return. The bottom line is it helps ensure continued revenue. Previous lighting options have delivered the desired ambiance but at the expense of high electricity bills. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates the hospitality industry spends approximately $4.6 billion a year on energy but could save approximately $745 million a year by reducing energy usage by 10 percent1. The right lighting choices can significantly lower energy consumption and maintenance costs.

“Businesses in the hospitality industry are always interested in reducing energy but are also just as focused on creating a mood that entices repeat customers. Incandescent lamps have offered the desired warm color but at the cost of higher electricity bills,” said Ellen Sizemore, product portfolio manager, LED lamps, OSRAM SYLVANIA. “With our full portfolio of ULTRA 25 LED lamps, the hospitality industry now has more options for creating the cozy atmosphere they desire across their entire facility, rather than just in one area, and lowering their energy bills.”

“Incandescent lamps can burn extremely hot which means hospitality locations will need to turn up the air conditioning so their guests are comfortable,” said Curtis Saunders, outsides sales account manager at NEDCO Supply, a leading supplier of electrical supplies, lighting and distribution equipment, data/communications, CCTV and audio-video products for the Las Vegas Valley and surrounding areas. “LED lighting runs much cooler which saves energy.”

“Other companies have some LED lamps that offer the needed 2500K color temperature, but not all types. The full advantage of a company like OSRAM SYLVANIA having a full portfolio is being able to match the nice, warm color across a location with many different types of luminaires,” said Saunders.  

All ULTRA LED lamps are RoHS-compliant with no lead or mercury. The lack of UV and IR radiation makes these lamps ideal for highlighting artwork, as discoloration and fading of materials is minimized.
