1

Saves Money

Saves Money

It is important that businesses reduce their energy emissions. Recycling, good insulation and energy efficient boilers are standard practices for most businesses now. However another good way of reducing energy emissions and saving money is to change to LED lighting. If installed by a reputable electrical contractor, after an initial installation cost the energy savings can be as much as 80%.

Bulbs Last Longer

Bulbs Last Longer

The average lifespan of an LED bulb is 50,000 hours, compared to the average lifespan of a 50W halogen bulb of between 1000-2000 hours. In addition LED lights do not suddenly fail, the light intensity will decrease over a long period of time which gives you advanced warning that they need to be replaced.

3

Cool to the Touch

Cool to the Touch

LED lighting is ‘green’ lighting as almost all of the energy it uses is converted to light. This makes LED bulbs cold to the touch and therefore much safer if left on unattended overnight in offices or shops.

4

Full Brightness Immediately

Full Brightness Immediately

We all know that some low energy bulbs give out a dull glow after being switched on and can take ages to reach their optimum light output level. LED lights are the exact opposite of this and reach maximum light output immediately - so no waiting around in the dark.

5

Can be Dimmed

Can be Dimmed

LEDs are semi-conductor devices which make dimming smooth and seamless. This allows the lighting intensity to be tailored to different areas of an office or shop etc.

6

Eco Friendly

Eco Friendly

LED lighting contains no toxic materials and is 100% recyclable which makes it ideal for businesses wanting to reduce their carbon footprint. In contrast, conventional fluorescent strip lighting contains very hazardous materials such as mercury which should be disposed of carefully.

Creates Better Mood Lighting

Creates Better Mood Lighting

The key to good lighting is making sure that it works both on a practical and aesthetic level e.g. office staff need good lighting to see what is written on paperwork as well as an environment that is pleasant to work in. LEDs can be dimmed, light intensity controlled, they can distribute light in a single direction and come in a variety of colours. This combination can produce a fantastic range of effects which can be tailored to suit the mood of any shop, restaurant, office, or factory.

Works in Cold Conditions

Works in Cold Conditions

Unlike fluorescent lighting which doesn’t work well in cold temperatures, LED lighting’s performance actually improves. This makes it ideal for outdoor lighting such as signage lighting, car parking areas, perimeter lighting as well as in cold warehouses and storage areas.
