Incredibly, lighting systems can be responsible for as much as 40% of an office’s total consumption of electricity, so by switching to LED lighting, which is much more economical, you could make big savings. While it might seem like an unnecessary outlay, switching to LED lighting will make a huge impact on your energy bills and save you lots of money over the long-term.
Fatigue is a common problem for office workers and harsh lighting is known to have a detrimental impact on their performance causing eye strain and making it difficult for your employees to concentrate on their work. LED lighting mirrors natural lighting more closely and spreads an even light across your office. What’s more LED lighting can be customised to have different levels of intensity and alternative colours.
Lower your carbon footprint
For businesses hoping to improve their commitment to renewable energy, switching to LED light bulbs is a good place to start. It may seem like a small place to start but estimates show that if every home in the UK changed a handful of light bulbs in their homes then there would be enough energy saved for all of the UK’s street lights.
Finally, when compared with other forms of lighting, LED’s are by far the most efficient. LED’s make an energy saving of 90% whereas CFL bulbs save 75% and halogens save only 30% compared with incandescent light bulbs.
