There are many different options to consider when looking to upgrade your commercial lighting and it can be hard to work out which will be the most cost-effective in the long run. With energy costs rapidly rising, and government legislation to reduce carbon emissions, there are many reasons to look at replacing old lighting systems with energy efficient ones in commercial spaces.
LED lighting is the most cost-effective and energy efficient lighting solution, and can now be found in many homes. However, their true versatility and effectiveness can be seen in commercial spaces such as warehouses and factories where good lighting is essential and needs to work for a variety of different activities.
It can be easy to be put off by the initial costs of replacing an outdated lighting system with an LED lighting installation but with the swift payback LED lighting provides through energy efficiency, reduced maintenance, Enhanced Capital Allowance energy scheme and qualifying for certain tax allowances; the costs are more than offset and the lighting will pay for itself and be profitable in the long run.
One of the main ways that LED lighting is the most cost-effective lighting solution is because it is designed for maximum efficiency, using less energy than older lighting systems. As LED lights do not generate as much heat, less energy is wasted and therefore can provide increased cost savings on energy bills for maintaining ambient temperatures. If you were also to install intelligent lighting controls, you could save your business even more money.
LED lights require less maintenance than halogen or fluorescent lighting as they are much more durable and built to last longer. An LED light has a lifespan in excess of 50,000 hours therefore reducing maintenance to almost zero.
