LED Lighting Installation from TF Installations
LED Lighting Installation: LED lighting has become more popular in the workplace replacing old-fashioned traditional light bulbs over the past few years. LED lighting is far more efficient and better for the environment than traditional light bulbs and can also enhance your workplace environment with much more attractive lighting options, settings and lighting designs.
For any business owner looking to make their workplace more energy-efficient, yet at the same time more comfortable for their staff and visitors, it can be very easy to upgrade your lighting with the help of TF Installations.
But it does help to know more about LED lighting, how it works, and the many benefits it can bring to your business. Here are just a few of them:
What is LED lighting?
LED is short for light-emitting diode. While it does sound very scientific, it is simply a type of semiconductor that emits light when it comes into contact with an electric current.
Microchip technology has allowed LED bulb developers to incorporate a microchip with a number of conducting light sources to produce light when the electric light switch is turned on and an electric current flows through the bulb.
LED bulbs can outlast traditional incandescent or halogen bulbs by an average of 10 to 20 times. They also use less electricity than traditional bulbs, which makes them more energy-efficient to use, so although their upfront costs may be a little more than traditional lighting options, they actually cost less over time due to their longevity and lower power consumption.
The benefits of using LED lighting in the workplace
For many well-established businesses that may be operating out of an older building that is wired up with traditional lighting, it may seem like a costly task to thing about completely replacing their lighting with an LED option. However, it is very worth making the switch if you have been considering this for a while.
For a start, LED lighting has a lower heat output than more traditional incandescent or halogen bulbs. In a workplace where heat build-up can cause issues with electronic equipment such as computers, printers, servers etc. it makes more sense to keep the workspace as cool as possible by installing LED lights.
Reduced CO2 emissions
With UK businesses currently under so much pressure from the Government to reduce their carbon production and minimise their impact on the environment, installing LED lighting can help make your business greener and better for the planet.
LED lighting leads to lower CO2 emissions, but they also don’t contain any toxic materials, such as mercury, so will release fewer toxins should they get damaged or broken.
Creating a perfect mood and atmosphere
Because you have a lot more flexibility over the design of your LED lighting system, you can create a much healthier working environment that is less stark than traditional lighting and you can model your lighting into all sorts of fixtures to gently illuminate dark corners, adjust lighting levels and direct the angle of your lighting to reduce eye-strain in your workers.
However, for a business owner without a clue about how to start overhauling their workplace lighting and switching to an LED lighting system, it can all become a little overwhelming. In some workplaces you may have older wiring and light fixtures that may not be suitable for LED, meaning that you may need to change your entire lighting system and wiring to benefit from the LED.
This is where TF Installations can help! LED technology has come a long way in recent years so it can help to consult and work with an experienced team of electrical engineers and designers that can fully inspect and test your current system, assess your lighting needs and come up with an option that suits your business needs and the type of building you have.
Boost the health and well-being of your staff
With employees spending approximately one-third of their day in the workplace, it goes without saying that you need to be concerned about the well-being of your staff while at work. The importance of the lighting conditions they work under is critical for their health and well-being, so the use of LED lighting in the workplace is increasing across the UK because of this concern.
When you provide the right conditions for your workforce, it leads to a higher level of productivity, which in turn is great for your business!
Proper lighting in the workplace is key for improving productivity and the comfort of your staff. Healthy lighting can determine and improve the perception, mood, and performance of employees, and with an average of 68% of employees complaining about either inadequate or harsh lighting in their workspace, this is a figure that a business owner should never ignore.
Research studies in the workplace show that up to 30% of workers suffer from headaches due to eye-strain caused by improper lighting. Up to 25% also reported losing 15 minutes a day of productive work due to lighting causing focusing problems – that can add up to one and a half weeks lost each year!
