Quality LED lighting

5 great reasons to go LED with LER:LED.

Just think about never having to change a lightbulb, tube or flood light ever again. Whilst conventional halogen bulbs can last only 2000 hours, LEDs last an impressive 25 times longer! Large commercial properties often use hundreds of lamp fittings; the labour costs saved over years of not having to constantly change lamps results in massive savings. This makes LED lighting an excellent investment for all types of businesses.

Most of our LEDs have 5-year guarantees and are approved to have a lifespan of up to 50,000 hours. That equates to almost 17 years of life if used daily for 8 hours a day! This amazing lifespan means you don’t have to replace your lamps anywhere near as often. Over a period of time you will end up purchasing and fitting far fewer lamps, which adds to your lighting savings.

Unlike halogens and fluorescents, LEDs only emit visible light and no UV or IR radiation. This means less energy is wasted in the form of heat and invisible light. LEDs will provide huge savings over the long term as they use far less electricity than normal incandescent bulbs. In fact, LED lights are so efficient that they are often able to pay for themselves in less than 2 years. With escalating electricity costs they are a great investment for your business.

An LED lamp from a quality manufacturer should be good for at least 50,000 hours and cost only £40 to run during that time. It can easily replace the 40w tungsten bulb costing £5.60 every 1,000 hours (or £280 over 50,000 hours). Switching to LED makes real sense because the cost of electricity isn’t likely to get cheaper any time soon!

The bottom line – LEDs consume far less power. Fluorescents may be energy-saving light sources compared to old-fashioned tungsten, but when contrasted with LEDs there really is no contest!

Today’s LEDs produce light in a variety of colour temperatures (day, cool, warm white), but they don’t have any flickering issues that are associated with traditional tubes.

Light from a fluorescent bulb is non-directional, whilst LEDs offer directional light (illumination exactly where you need it). Fluorescents have multi-directional light, which means some light is lost in the fixture and other unnecessary places.
In terms of brightness or lumen output, LEDs produce excellent light output easily equivalent light to halogen and CFL. A 5w LED downlight, for example, is sufficient to replace a 35w halogen downlight.

LED’s are able to produce a variety of warm white, cool white or daylight light colours. They can be used in almost any environment or lighting situation.
Stable Lighting Quality: LEDs do not have the flickering issues common with fluorescent tubes.

Durability: Fluorescent tubes burn out faster when used with movement sensors/PIR’s, whereas LEDs work perfectly with control systems as they are not affected by constant switching on or off. LEDs are far less fragile than both fluorescent and incandescent bulbs. They are more durable and less likely to be damaged due to being accidentally knocked. There is less danger of broken glass as they are often made in polycarbonate.

Instant On: LEDs provide instant light and instant full illumination. Fluorescents can’t do this and require time to flicker before staying on.
Don’t be dim: most fluorescents cannot be dimmed – most LEDs have full dimming capabilities.

Switching to LED lighting will contribute greatly to the reduction in greenhouse emissions. Additionally, LED lighting is mercury-free making it safer for the environment. The metal and vapour in Fluorescent lights is extremely hazardous to both humans and the environment; if it is ingested or inhaled it can cause serious complications, and as such must be disposed of safely.

LEDs are completely safe, putting users at ease while knowing that they are not contributing to pollution.

Fed up of the “buzz” from fluorescent tubes? They are notorious for being noisy- especially if they are getting old. The click and pop intermittently, but most annoyingly they can produce a low buzzing sound. In working environments this can be distracting. LED’s operate silently with no annoying quirks or noises.

Turn the air-con off! Fluorescent, incandescent and halogen bulbs produce heat, so in summer they contribute to a over-heated working environment. LEDs are lukewarm to the touch and carry less risk of causing an accidental fire or burn.

Unbelievable savings: switch today.

Simply put, LED lamps use less electricity. LED has become the preferred form of lighting in today’s commercial world.
