Choosing The Right LED's For Your Business Project

Whether your business is looking for an entirely new lighting system or your looking to upgrade your existing ones, it's important you understand what exactly it is your businesses current lighting system is lacking and what requirements you have for your new one. Are your lighting levels sufficient? Is the colour temperature (whiteness compared to daylight) correct? It is not just about the power as the more efficient light sources will have a higher lumen per watt output, so the wattage is not a level of brightness. Instead, light output is measured in lumens, the higher the lumens the brighter your light will be. It is usually worth having a lighting design undertaken and a free consultation with one of our experts.

When it comes to our clients led projects, We have a large variety of stylish and energy efficient products suitable for all commercial led lighting purposes whether its sports led’s, industrial lighting or an advanced solution for your car park, we’ve got you covered.

Energy-Efficient Commercial LED Lighting

Reliability Combined With Flexibility

How Can Commercial LED Lighting Directly Benefit My Business?

LED’s are perfect for any application, because they’re small they provide ultimate flexibility for any business owner, whether you want isolated lights or you want them grouped together LED lighting lets you choose what’s best for your space. LED’s are far more energy-efficient than traditional incandescent bulbs and use up to 70% less energy making them a lot cheaper to run. Alongside the technical details that make them perfect for commercial purposes, the aesthetical touches give them even more advantages over incandescent and fluorescents. Whilst enhancing focus and productivity LED’ still maintain a natural lighting space with the perfect level of intensity.

Why Choose Empower As Your Installers?

With years of experience behind us specialising in renewables, we know exactly what our customers need. We use Philips energy-efficient led’s to design and install innovative lighting systems for businesses looking to improve their workspace. Coupled with the latest technology, Philips lights increase flexibility and reduce your overall energy consumption.

How Expensive Is Commercial LED Lighting?

At first LED lighting can seem like an expensive option compared to standard lighting for businesses, however, when you add up all the maintenance normal fluorescent lighting requires you'll find it works out to be a lot cheaper to pay a higher initial cost for better quality lighting that lasts several years longer, than to pay for lighting that may be cheap at first but will actually end up costing you far more after maintenance and repairs are accounted for.

So many people decide to get lighting that gives them a quick fix to an annoying problem, but without the correct research into what they're buying they end up in a worse position financially because they don’t take the time to invest in a product that gives them a long- term solution.

Frequently Asked Questions

lights for workplace

How Long Does Commercial LED Lighting Last?

LED lights have a lifespan a great deal longer than your standard fluorescent and incandescent lights have. This is because they are designed in a way that makes them far more robust and reliable in order for customers to get a lot of use out of them. On average LED’s last around 50,000 hours and up to 10 years. Whilst they don’t require maintenance like most bulbs do we recommend you look after them the best you can to get maximum durability. Often customers who take care of their lighting systems get more than the expected lifespan out of their led’s and continue to receive vibrant and focused lighting. This is just one of the many factors that make LED’s an increasingly popular choice for customers.

Are LED's Environmentally Friendly?

LED lights can be up to 85% more efficient than normal lights. This is because LED lights convert the majority of what they produce into light and only a small percentage of around 6% is maintained as heat. This is a lot healthier for our environment because it means less harmful emissions are being released into the atmosphere, minimising the chances of global warming rises. LED's . generate light focusing in one particular direction meaning their level of brightness is significantly higher than normal lights which focus their lights in multiple different directions and therefore waste more energy than LED’S. LED lights last longer, and the longer the lifespan of the light the less Co2 produced into the environment.

Do They Save Energy?

Commercial LED lighting has several positives that prove to be beneficial for businesses including being significantly more energy efficient than non-led lights. This means your business could save a fortune just by upgrading to brighter, more intense lighting. Being conservative with your energy usage is important to any business owner looking to be successful whilst save in as many areas as possible. The bottom line is LED's reduce your overall energy output and provide ultimate efficiency.

How Do They Work?

LED’s work by acting as a semiconductor in order to let out light. A current pass through the semiconductor and energy is then released and converted into light. This is the process behind what you see.

Can You Get LED Lights With Dimmable Controls?

Not all commercial LED lighting has the option for dimming controls. If you're looking for LED's with controls, you'll need to ensure the lighting you choose has the capability to dim properly. If yourcommercial LED lighting doesn't have the ability for this they wont have the same effect as specially designed lights with this built-in function have. Trying to dim a bulb that isn’t made for this purpose may not work and could end up ruining the bulb if your not careful.

3D Modelling Software

How We Calculate Your Project.

With the rising cost of energy and ever increasing demand for high efficiency lighting, the LED market is rapidly expanding. LEDs promise high efficiency, but the cost is still higher than traditional lighting. So how can Empower Energy design team get more light out of an LED design to reduce the lights required ? Let’s take a look at how we design your businesses new LED lighting: The Dialux software design tool draws from an extensive library of LEDs, drivers and heat sinks to design your complete lighting system. Dialux software enables our in-house design team to perform real-time comparisons using 3D graphical visualisation.

We start the design by understanding your existing lighting and existing LUX levels and from this point we then need an understanding of what your requirements are within the areas we are designing. Usually this will have been ascertained from our site assessment and consultation.

So, for example if we design a manufacturing area, the required LUX could be between 700 and 1000 depending on Clients requirements. We start with our on-site technical survey to calculate the size of the area and height of the existing lighting and measure the lighting levels to understand the existing LUX levels. Our designers input the measurements and build the area. Once we have the full design built into the software, we then select the desired light output in lumens and the right luminaire and populate our 3D modelling software.
