Upgrade the workplace to LED
This one upgrade to your office has so much to offer that once you find out you won’t look back. Ready? There you go!
Outdated lights spend 95% of the energy on heating the bulb and just 5 on lighting it. Blown away? So updating to LEDs can save you somewhere between 80 to 90% on your lighting bills.
But it doesn’t stop there. You also save on maintenance cost because LED last up to 10 years with no maintenance. Since they are much cooler than traditional lights, no extra heat is produced and you save on air-conditioning too. With a much cleaner and improved lightings with zero flickering, it can improve your staff’s productivity not to mention the reduced carbon footprint as a result of all the above efficiencies.
Step up the controls
Installing your office with more control to avoid wastage is really the future of all businesses now seeking to contain the sprawling electricity bills.
But how can you do that?
Dimmers are a great way to save energy by using the right amount of light at the right place helping you control the brightness of a lighting fixture. They are safe and efficient with no complicated wiring needed.
Another option you can add to your business is installing bi-level switches that help you turn on lights only in areas where it is needed.
When everything is getting smart and intelligent, why shouldn’t your business lighting too? Connected lighting systems offer building optimisation, sustainability and better performance. It is mostly achieved by sensors connected to the light to detect occupancy, light levels and energy consumption and are designed to catch signals given by movement and temperature. Thus they automatically turn on the light when they detect presence and turn off when people leave the room or daylight stops coming. This adds so much more convenience, as lights do not need to be switched on or off manually and also saves energy.
From tube lights, high bay lights, shop lights, flood lights, sensor lights, downlights and the regular LED bulbs, we offer all sorts of light installations in Ballarat and can guide you on the best light that fits your space and budget.
