Contract Labour Solutions Installs Energy Efficient Lighting for Businesses
Every business is looking to save money, and many businesses invest a good deal of time and energy in finding new ways to minimise budgets and maximise profits. Sometimes, however, there are simple ways to to save on bills that are being overlooked. The CLS team is now working on installing energy efficient lighting for number of businesses across Birmingham.
What is Energy Efficiency Lighting?
There are two different types of energy efficient light bulbs to choose from in the UK.
- Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs (CFLs)
- Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs)
Of the two, LEDs offer the most cost-effective option. If you replace 1 traditional light bulb with a LED equivalent you will save £2 on your lighting bills. Just think about the number of bulbs used in your business and you’ll see immediately what a cost saving they represent.
Creating Energy Efficient Lighting Systems for Businesses
LED lights are currently dropping in price, and gaining efficiency. This makes it a great time to replace your current lighting system with its LED equivalent. Peter Hunt, Chief Operating Officer at the Lighting Industry Association states:
“LEDs have undergone a rapid technological evolution over the past few years and have become a much more fitting replacement for earlier light sources. Older LEDs produced a very blue light, but modern LEDs have advanced to the point where you would be hard-pushed to tell the difference.”
It’s a technology which is easy to retrofit. A new LED lighting system can be installed quickly and efficiently with a minimal disruption to business.
LEDs are a Long Lasting Solution
Saving on energy bills isn’t the end of the story when it comes to LED cost-saving benefits. The bulbs are designed to last for up to 50,000 hours. That’s over 100% longer than halogen lamps. This inbuilt longevity reduces maintenance costs, and severely reduces the ongoing cost of purchasing replacement bulbs.
LED Lighting Improves Productivity
Sounds implausible? We know that natural light makes employees feel more energised, which improves the quality and quantity of their work. LEDs are the closest yet to producing the health-giving benefits of natural light. And LED lights are designed to be ‘smart’ rather than simply functional. Energy efficient light systems can reduce the light produced by fixtures near windows, or adjust the lighting levels throughout the day to augment the natural light outside.
Replacing Wasteful Technology Locks in Low Prices for the Future
Any business welcomes long term efficiencies and LED provides future-proof high efficiency lighting. More and more businesses are getting rid of old and wasteful technologies in order to replace them with a LED infrastructure. We all know that energy prices are likely to rise as we move towards zero carbon targets. Making efficiencies now creates a safety cushion for an uncertain future.
