Tips from a commercial electrician: How to reduce YOUR business lighting costs by up to 90%

With power bills continually on the rise, your business can’t afford to keep paying the running costs for traditional or halogen lighting.  As a leading commercial electrician, we advise you to replace your regular lights with LEDs (light emitting diodes) — which will immediately cut lighting energy costs by up to a whopping 90%.

LED lighting is at the forefront of 21st century lighting technology, and produces economical, attractive, energy-efficient lighting that’s perfect for your office, factory, warehouse or school. And LEDs are so cost effective that when you switch over to them, the changeover will pay for itself in only a matter of months.

But what are the main benefits of this type of lighting, and why should you consider it for your premises? We’ve outlined a few key points below… (See our free, downloadable Do’s and Don’ts Checklist for more!)

1) LED lighting uses up to 90% less power

Installing LED lighting is one of the quickest and easiest ways to slash your company’s power bill. LEDs use much less power than incandescent or compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), which means that replacing your lights can save around 90% on lighting energy costs. And you don’t have to compromise on performance either, as LEDs now provide excellent lighting for the workplace due to new technologies.

Over a period of time, the money you save on your power bill will add up to a significant amount. So what are you waiting for? Give our commercial electricians a call and make the switch to LEDs today.

2) Each LED light lasts for approximately 25 years

High quality LED lights have a lifespan of around 30,000 hours — meaning each bulb will last for about 11 years (based on seven hours of lighting per day). Because they have such a long lifespan, LEDs are more expensive than standards bulbs. On average they cost around $30 per bulb, however the cost savings you make over time will far outweigh this initial expense.

3) This type of lighting can be quickly and easily installed by a commercial electrician

LED installation is relatively quick and easy, although it does require the services of a professional electrician. At ACER Services, we’re skilled at switching large and small businesses over to LED lighting. Our commercial electricians will work at a time that suits you to install your new lighting with minimal interruption to normal services. And once your LED lights are in place, you can relax. In fact, you probably won’t need to change the bulbs for the next 25 years (unless you move premises, in which case you can take them with you).

4) LED lighting has a natural, attractive light spectrum

LED lighting is an aesthetically pleasing light that comes in many colours, including white, warm white and cool white. It produces a full-spectrum light that closely resembles daylight — illuminating office, school, factory and retail environments. LEDs can also provide excellent directional lighting for work areas and create a bright, clear light for displaying retail products.

5) LED lights are 100% recyclable

Unlike many other types of lights, all the materials found inside LED bulbs are completely recyclable. This means that by switching to LEDs, finite natural resources are conserved and greenhouse gases emissions reduced — lowering your company’s carbon footprint and protecting our planet.
