Why upgrade your office lighting?
Lighting contributes significantly to your office operating costs and energy use. With electricity prices escalating rapidly, an energy efficient lighting upgrade is one of the quickest and easiest ways to cut your business overheads.
Upgrading your office lighting will save you up to 80% of your annual lighting costs. The typical payback period is one to two years. So there is plenty of scope to achieve a positive return on investment, even in the case of five year lease terms.
Replace Fluorescents with LED tubes
Slash energy costs
Most common in offices are fluorescent tubes: typically 36W T8 fluorescent lamps. An equivalent 18W LED tube consumes around 60% less energy. So if you have T8s in your workplace, replacing them will immediately and significantly reduce your lighting costs.
In addition, fluorescent lamps need control equipment which also consumes energy. The equivalent LED component uses less energy, so you'll get savings there as well.
Reduce maintenance costs
Often overlooked are the costs associated with replacement and maintenance of lighting. LEDs last around 50,000 hrs compared to 10-20,000 hrs for fluorescents. So you'll save on maintenance costs and lessen the disruption that maintenance can cause to your day to day business operations.
Improve lighting quality
Flickering light in an office is a common complaint related to fluorescent lighting. Replacing flourescents with LED tubes can significantly improve the lighting quality; they switch on instantly and emit a steady light without any ultraviolet component.
