Did you know that your business could be spending around 60% of your electricity bill on lighting alone? And lighting that is badly designed, or not energy efficient could be leading to huge amounts of wasted electricity, and money? Here at Walker Electrical, we are Preston’s leading electrical experts, and we know how important it is for companies and businesses to cut costs at every possible opportunity. That’s why energy efficient retrofit lighting could be so beneficial. But what is this? And what will it involve?
What is an energy efficient retrofit lighting design?
Energy efficient retrofit lighting involves taking a look at your current lighting, and assessing your energy uses to find out where losses and wastage is coming from. Once this has been established, parts of your current lighting system can be replaced or upgraded, especially in areas with high amounts of wastage. Replacing the lighting and lighting control in these areas can be an effective way to save money in the long run, and make your workplace more comfortable and safe for employees.
One of the most common forms of lighting retrofit is the installation of LED lights and light fittings, to replace older halogen or fluorescent bulbs. This is because LED lights are incredibly energy efficient. Not only do they use much less energy, but they also last a lot longer because of the way that they are designed. This means you will save money both in repair and maintenance, as well as your energy bills.
In addition, when it comes to energy efficient retrofit lighting, the lighting control options are often changed. This is because lighting control options that are either off or on can lead to energy wasted. People can easily forget to switch off the light when not in the room, and this means that you will often be paying to light an empty room. Motion sensor lighting can be a great way to prevent this kind of energy loss.
