Why install commercial LED lighting at your workplace?

Power on Demand Ltd can offer you LED lighting that will improve the safety of your organisation as well as decrease costs. We have a wealth of experience at supplying and installing inside and outside LED lighting in commercial spaces such as offices, warehouses and other premises.

Working in large warehouses/factories often sees regular bulb replacements which are an expensive option. By installing LED lighting, you can guarantee your enterprises’ annual energy savings to fall between 65-80% in as quickly as 14-24 months.

An additional benefit of commercial LED lighting is to the health and safety of your building; it brings a better light quality, meaning you’ll have good colour rendering with no dark patches. In addition to this, LED lights give off 90% less heat than most incandescent light bulbs, giving you better lighting and increasing comfort for your workers. This will boost productivity and smooth flow throughout your workplace.

LEDs are extremely energy efficient and consume up to 90% less power than incandescent bulbs. Since LEDs use only a fraction of the energy of an incandescent light bulb there is a dramatic decrease in power costs. Also, money and energy is saved in maintenance and replacement costs due to the long LED lifespan.

Lighting controls can provide an additional 50% saving The government recognise the benefit of lighting control and is starting to introduce regulation that focuses on improvements in the energy efficiency of the total building. The introduction of Building Regulations Part L (2013) is an example of this change and introduces the concept of a Lighting Energy Numeric Indicator that calculates the energy usage of a building per metre2.

How is LED lighting different to other commercial lighting?

Commercial LED lighting is very different from other lighting sources such as incandescent bulbs and CFLs. Key differences include the following: 

  • Light Source: LEDs are the size of a fleck of pepper, and a mix of red, green, and blue LEDs is typically used to make white light.
  • Direction: LEDs emit light in a specific direction, reducing the need for reflectors and diffusers that can trap light. This feature makes LEDs more efficient for many uses such as recessed downlights and task lighting. With other types of lighting, the light must be reflected to the desired direction and more than half of the light may never leave the fixture.
  • Heat: LEDs emit very little heat. In comparison, incandescent bulbs release 90% of their energy as heat and CFLs release about 80% of their energy as heat.
Key benefits of commercial LED lighting compared to other lighting:
  • Lighting Energy Savings (Typically 60-85%) 
  • Zero Replacement Overheads In Lifetime 
  • Product Lifetimes >50,000 Hours 
  • Usage Improved Light Levels On Site 
  • Impact & Vibration Resistant Products

We can provide commercial LED lighting for free of charge through funding opportunities with many of our investors who are keen to support renewable energy products.
