LED Lighting – Yorkshire Electrician


LED Lighting For Your Commercial Property?


 If your business is still using incandescent downlights or Halogen track lighting, you’re just burning up money. Most of the energy emitted from incandescent bulbs (yes, Halogen bulbs are considered an incandescent light source) is converted to heat instead of light. That’s why you’ll burn yourself if you try to touch a traditional light bulb. 

What if you could go years without having to change a burned out light? Most LED lights are designed to last on average 40,000 and 50,00 hours, that means you could leave them on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and they could last more than 5 years!

 

Don’t believe all the light bulb jokes out there. Changing a light can be tricky if you’re running a hotel, restaurant or retail business. Often you have to wait until there’s a lull in business to break out a ladder or a lift to change a bulb. We’ve heard stories of hotels bringing in a crew with a scissor lift in the small hours of the morning, when lobby traffic was low, to change hard to reach bulbs. That’s too much trouble to have to go through on a regular basis, not to mention expensive. With long-lasting LED lights, you can cut back on lighting maintenance, freeing up your employees to focus o other more pressing tasks.

In most applications there is a retrofit LED option available, from incandescent GLS lamps to decorative candle lamps there is now a LED equivalent available. There are a varying spectrums of colour now available so the harsh LED light of the early days is no longer a problem. In some cases like GU10/MR16 Halogen downlights there may be a need for a minor adaptation to enable a LED install. All of the above leads to a cost effective option when looking to cut cost on your energy bill and of course your carbon emissions
