Energy-efficient lighting systems
Straits Electrical Contractors are committed to minimising all customer carbon footprints by offering a range environmentally friendly products, services and solutions to both homes and businesses throughout North Wales, Gwynedd, Anglesey and the North West.
One of the most efficient and cost-effective ways to cut energy levels is via the installation of energy efficient lighting systems. New generation LED lights generate three to five times more light than conventional lamps. They also reach full brightness almost instantly, unlike compact fluorescent lamps which take more than a minute to reach maximum output.
Because energy efficient lighting systems (LED) are so robust and long lasting, they are ideal for any type of property, not just homes. Farms, sports facilities, schools, care homes, hotels, factories, offices, retail stores,and most other commercial or industrial operations can all benefit significantly.
What are the benefits of Energy Efficient Lighting?
- Installing energy efficient lighting, LED systems is one of the simplest and quickest ways to reduce your energy use and costs, with relatively low capital outlay and fast capital payback. Lamps can be fitted quickly and the savings you enjoy begin immediately.
- LED lighting systems are up to 80% more energy efficient than conventional incandescent bulbs and produce half as much carbon dioxide.
- LED lamps have an average service life of up to 50,000 hours, while induction lamps last up to 100,000 hours. That compares with an average life of 1,500 hours for a conventional incandescent bulb, 12,000 hours for fluorescent tubes and 9,000 hours for halide hi-bay lamps. That means energy efficient lighting offers a greatly extended bulb replacement lifecycle, making them ideal for difficult-to-access locations. They are also highly durable and robust, and require minimal maintenance – delivering further long-term cost savings.
- LED lamps generate very little heat, reducing the requirement for air conditioning and making them ideal for cold storage or cold production areas.
Straits Electrical Contractors can carry out a full lighting energy audit to determine your current energy usage and carbon emissions, and to identify where replacement lamps will deliver optimum energy and carbon savings. We can also dispose of all your old lamps, bulbs and fittings in accordance with Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive regulations.
