David Parden, industry expert from Walls Electrical explains how LED Lighting can brighten up your business in more ways than one. He talked to Property Aspects Magazine about the reasons why LEDs should be the default choice for commercial lighting needs.
The technological advances in the development of LEDs have been fast and furious, with manufacturers competing to design suitable fittings for every application in the workplace and at home, while working to lower the retail price to a tipping point of mass consumer acceptance. Today, these goals have largely been met. Now LEDs offer a far more competitive solution with greater levels of sustainability, energy efficiency and performance.
LED lighting is more cost-effective than their traditional counterparts, and specialty LEDs have become widely available for the different lighting applications in modern buildings. However, perhaps the greatest advantage is the energy savings which can be up to 80% producing a great return on investment with payback periods typically between 1 and 3 years.
David also provided a few tips to help you make sense of the many energy-efficient lighting solutions on the market today, and how to choose the best LED fitting for your lighting needs.
- Buy quality LED Lighting from an expert supplier
- Beware of the cheapest on the market
- The new Lumens rating makes buying LED bulbs much simpler
- LED bulbs contain no mercury
- LEDs give instant light, and many LED bulbs are dimmable
- LEDs won’t contribute to heat buildup in your building
- Don’t let the retail price shock you – you’ll save much more on running costs
He commented: “The trend in LED lighting is moving towards more widespread adoption of LEDs for commercial as well as residential use. Today, builders of new homes are installing LED bulbs in many fixtures, and as LED bulb prices continue to go down, this trend is going to grow”.
Businesses are also widely adopting LED technolgy and retro-fitting their warehouses, factories and production plants both internally and externally. A little knowledge about these bulbs will help you get the best value for your money.
