16 Jul Update Your Business with LED Lighting
On the back of recent news that a centuries-old church has been equipped with contemporary LEDs, we’re bringing you some more benefits of this great choice of lighting. Located in Leighton Buzzard, the architectural wonders of 700-year-old All Saints Church are set to shine even brighter, thanks to the new computerised lighting system. After years of getting by with halogen lamps, the church took the step of installing modern LED lighting to ensure the building ran more smoothly.
With the church’s halogen lamps beginning to burst, Canon Grant Fellows, vicar of All Saints said as the lamps were so high up they became expensive to replace. So why should you, too, consider LED lighting for your business?
As Canon Grant Fellows says, LEDs can be much cheaper to run. While they can cost a lot upfront, they’re easier to maintain and need replacing less frequently than other forms of lighting. The LED lighting All Saints Church installed, for instance, is set to last for up to 50,000 hours and will run at a fraction of the cost. What’s more, computerised LED lighting like this can come with a host of settings which can be controlled via a mobile phone.
LED lighting can also transform a room – be it an office block or warehouse. It can help you illuminate important workstations, or even shine a light (quite literally) on company awards or vital displays.
LED lighting is cost-effective, too. Instead of using the equivalent of 60 watts in energy, LED lighting might only use 7 watts while offering the same level of brightness. The most energy efficient lighting source (up to 90%), with the longest life, LED lighting is a great choice for anyone looking to reduce their carbon footprint. LED illumination produces zero emissions, too.
It’s also a durable form of lighting, as it’s built with sturdy components that can withstand even the roughest conditions. They’re also resistant to shock, vibrations and external impacts. For this reason alone, they make a great choice for external workspaces or your garden at home.
In terms of design, LEDs are really flexible. They can be combined in any shape to produce highly efficient illumination. LED lighting can be dimmed too and, as such, it’s already being used in aeroplanes.
Ideal for operation under cold and low outdoor temperature settings, LEDs are perfect for freezer rooms and other outdoor winter settings. They can also brighten up immediately when switched on, which makes them a good choice for traffic and signal lights as well.
