Why is LED lighting better?
Lighting can contribute to almost half of your total electricity bill. LED lighting consumes 50%-70% less energy when compared to equivalent incandescent light bulbs, CFLs or halogen lamps. By replacing inefficient bulbs with energy-efficient and cost-effective LED lights, you will reduce your bill and carbon footprint.
Our products are RoHs compliant, contain no mercury, lead or other hazardous materials and emit no ultraviolet (UV) or infrared radiation (IR). LED lights last for 50,000+ hours, approximately 50 times longer than a typical incandescent, 20-25 times longer than a typical halogen, and 8-10 times longer than a typical CFL. This means you can cut maintenance costs as LEDs last up to 8-10 times longer than standard lamps making LED lighting the ideal solution.
How does LED lighting work?
A light-emitting diode (LED) is a semiconductor light source that emits light when current flows through it. Electrons in the semiconductor recombine with electron holes, releasing energy in the form of photons. LED does not burn out like a standard lamp so individual bulbs (and the diodes) do not need to be replaced. Instead, the diodes gradually produce lower output levels over a very long period of time, over 50,000+ hours. If one LED fails, it does not produce a complete fixture outage.
How many lights do I need?
We review your requirements and project details thoroughly and efficiently. We want to ensure optimal lighting, whether for a residential setting, commercial, industrial or other space. You might need to retrofit previous lighting, or illuminate new areas to meet high standards of savings and safety. We provide a custom light simulation report and guidance for the quantity and product selection to suit your needs based on an architectural blueprint. This is a complementary service. You also get cost-savings analysis and comparison (before and after) as part of our services.
How much energy and cost savings will I get?
Our clients save over 50% in energy savings. The cost-savings depend on your current lighting bulbs and fixtures and what you decide to replace them with. Feel free to check out our energy savings calculator here .
What type of lighting do I need for my business?
The best office lighting is usually 3000-4900K bulbs. This is because their intensity is not exaggerated and it resembles regular daylight. The best lighting in a warehouse is typically 4000-5700K (it falls between warm white and daylight white). For specific lighting areas, for e.g. a client of ours in a hospital setting required 5000K at 32 watts INSERT (see Case Study). Outdoor lighting would require 4000-5700k to ensure safety and convenience. Besides getting the right bulbs, you can also blend your office light by placing a low-intensity LED bulb on your desk to improve on clarity. We also provide table lamps
What is a lighting study and what is the cost?
We provide a custom light simulation report and guidance for the quantity and product selection to suit your needs based on an architectural blueprint. This is a complementary service. You also get cost-savings analysis and comparison (before and after) as part of our services. Please get in touch with us to receive a quote.
How long is your warranty for LED lights?
Our high quality products offer a long potential life of 50,000+ hours and are backed by a 7-10 years warranty, depending on the product. Typically, other companies provide 2-5 years warranty.
What is the lead time on LED replacement or retrofit?
We are timely and communicative. We typically provide a custom light simulation report (a complementary service) after our first meeting. The report is created after an architectural blueprint is provided to us. The report is sent back within about a week. After which we agree on quantity and fixture types, provide a quote, then proceed to place an order. If you require our electrical contractors to help you we provide quick and professional support here as well. Depending on the size of the project (and other variables, customization, etc.), lead time can be anywhere from approximately 2-6 weeks from first contact.
