Having read a great deal about the benefits of LED lights, both in ongoing energy costs and from an environmental point of view, we decided to bite the bullet and install LED lighting throughout our offices here at Ronset Printers, and we have to say they have brightened up the premises no end!
Grant From East Lancashire Chamber Of Commerce
We were delighted to be able to obtain a grant from the Low Carbon guys at East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce, so a big thank you to them for their help with this.
- They last a great deal longer than both incandescent or halogen bulbs and maintain their brightness for longer too.
- They are way more energy efficient than any other type of lighting, 80% to 90% is turned into light rather than heat. Contrast this with incandescent bulbs which lose 80% of their energy as heat and so are 20% efficient. If you want to do your bit for the environment installing LED lighting is one way you can help because also–
- They don`t contain any toxic compounds or elements like mercury and they are 100% recyclable.
- Because they give off very little UV emissions they won`t degrade any stored materials in the rooms they are installed in, which is why museums are increasingly turning to LED lighting to protect all the items they are exhibiting.
- If you need light in an area which is very cold then LED lights are definitely the way to go as they are ultra reliable in freezing temperatures, they can work very well on low-voltage power too.
Brightening Up Your Day
There are other benefits to using LED lighting but these are the main ones, we would certainly recommend them if you have a business or you can install them in your home of course too.
