LED – why change?

Do you have LED lights in your store or are you waiting for a refurbishment before you make that change? At 0-two Maintenance we have been looking at the benefits of changing to LED lights. Below are some of positive benefits, we have also produced a full cost analysis based on store size and pay back is in 3 years just based on energy. If you would like to have a copy of the full money savings available to your store please contact enquiries@0twomaintenance.co.uk

AN LED HAS A LONG LIFE

The number one benefit of the LED; the lights and diodes have a life expectation of 100,000 hours. If you equate that to an 8hr day it should be around 5 years before you need a lighting visit for a lamp replacement.

THEY USE LESS POWER

Old lamps lose 80% of their power to heat loss etc. An LED loses only 20% to heat loss. That is a lot of money wasted. Getting those old stores converted to LED could save you a fortune in energy bills. Your AC also needs to work harder to get rid of that excess heat. More energy watsed.

IT IS MUCH MORE ECO-FRIENDLY

They don’t have the horrible toxins present in fluorescent lights. So much nicer to the environment during both the making and when it comes to disposal.

LEDS ARE FAR MORE DURABLE

They can stand much harsher environments, changes in temperature, and water will not adversely effect them. So the lamps are far more stable and you need fewer call-outs.

ZERO UV EMISSION

There is little heat or UV light from an LED light and so any radiated heat will not affect goods that have to be illuminated.

LED BRILLIANT DESIGN FLEXIBILITY

LEDs can be combined to produce brilliant design flexibility, they also give you great control and therefore you can create dramatic effects that are perfect for retail environments.

COLOUR

Their colour rendering is much better. LED lights cover a broader range of the colour spectrum so your products are displayed in more realist colours.

LED LIGHTING CAN RUN ON LOW-VOLTAGE POWER SUPPLY

In retail stores where you have large numbers of lights, it creates a safer environment as the voltage being used around the store is not overloading the mains power supply.

GENERAL MAINTENANCE

The lighting visit can become a general maintenance visit and so drastically reduce the need for reactive call-outs, keeping your store looking brilliant for longer.
