Why make the switch to LED Emergency & Amenity Lighting in your Commercial Property?

It has become a common understanding that LED lighting is far more beneficial in comparison to traditional lighting options.  The benefits of LED Lighting for commercial use are impressive; whether you are looking to reduce energy costs long term or you are looking for a cleaner, eco-friendly way to light your property in an emergency, LED lights are the right solution.

LED technology is transforming the emergency lighting industry. The light-emitting diodes can produce light using a fraction of the energy of traditional lighting and are manufactured in line with British Standards, allowing you to meet regulations and provide the highest standard of emergency lighting.

Typically, a LED emergency light will have a lifetime of between 50,000 to 100,000 hours which is a major improvement compared to traditional fluorescent or incandescent lighting options.

Whilst LED luminaires are more expensive to purchase than other lights, their energy efficiency more than makes up for it.  Life cycle assessment proves that LED lamps are the most environmentally friendly light sources available on the market. In their total lifetime, LED lamps use on average 75% less energy than competing sources.  In addition, as LEDs use less far power, this in turn will drastically reduce the carbon footprint in your business.

LED light sources deliver outstanding high light output for lower power consumption. More efficient control gear leads to increased luminaire performance and extended product lifespan. LED light bulbs will far outlive their traditional counterparts, with a useable life of five times longer than incandescent bulbs; meaning that they will not need replacing as often.

As savings can be significant, an LED lighting installation is not just a way to save money, it should be viewed as a long-term solution that will provide the business with impressive lighting at a fraction of the running costs.

Making the switch over to LED has never been more important with 2017 threatening significant increases in energy prices. A recent study has shown that commercial buildings account for 20% of all energy consumption and of that 38% was used for lighting. Making savings in lighting is likely to make a substantial saving on your energy bills over the year.

In summary:

  • LED lights are durable, reliable and are relatively maintenance free when compared to traditional lighting.
  • LED lighting has an extremely low carbon footprint and is consistent with government initiatives towards a green economy. This means you can have sustainable energy in your commercial property and save money.
  • LED lights use about 50 percent less electricity than traditional incandescent, fluorescent and halogen options resulting in substantial energy cost savings.
  • LED lights can last 5 times longer than incandescent bulbs.
