LED Lighting for Businesses
Whatever your reasons are – going green, saving your energy costs or following the latest technology trends – LED is the new buzz word in the lighting world. LED technology is the latest source of low energy lighting – everyone’s talking about it! But how is LED (Light Emitting Diode) lighting really different from regular lighting? And how can it help you save costs in your business?
Here is the scientific bit: the real difference between the LED bulbs and traditional bulbs is that conventional lamps’ visible light arises as a by-product of the warming of a metal helix, a gas discharge or by the conversion of a proportion of the ultraviolet radiation produced in such a discharge. In LED lighting systems the production of light takes place in a semi-conductor crystal, which is electrically charged to illuminate.
The main advantage of LED installation is that they use significantly less energy than regular incandescent bulbs and have a much longer average light life. They last on average up to 50,000 hours: this means if you switch on only for a few hours each night then they can last up to 30 years. Another great thing about LED lighting is that the lamp produces no ultraviolet or infrared radiation (no heat is emitted), so they remain cold to touch – a great security feature and keeps offices and small spaces cool in summer saving further costs.
LED also helps to lessen global CO2 emissions and lower your business’s carbon footprint. The long life of LEDs means they are replaced less often, which helps reduce landfill. A truly green solution.
Our electricians will help you pick the most suitable LED lights from supplier’s fantastic range of colour’s, styles and performance. Outdoor LED lighting can also make great addition to your premises. LEDs are designed to be installed outdoors as well as indoors, most fittings are completely weatherproof. With such a varied range on offer, you can replace your existing lighting, whilst maintaining an unchanged look if you choose to.
Still not sure that LEDs are the future of lighting? Our electricians know that, though the initial expense for LED lighting sometimes seems greater than that of traditional light bulbs, the pay back is so great that LEDs really will save you money in the long run.
