Commercial LED Lighting Design & Installation

Commercial LED lighting is now one of the most popular forms of energy efficiency to consider. Organisations are finding that upgrading to commercial LED lighting has benefits for their staff’s wellbeing, and the general aesthetics and feel of the workplace can improve productivity. Coupled with the huge reduction in running costs, long term carbon reduction and a very small maintenance requirement, LED really is a winner all-round!! Empower Energy’s attention to detail with design, and commitment to quality both with products and installation, has brought us an enviable reputation. Our partnership with Philips has brought together the latest intelligent lighting solutions on the market today, with the know-how and back-up that Empower is synonymous with.

Choosing The Right Commercial LED's For Your Project

Understanding what LED lights your business requires when upgrading your existing commercial lights is important . Is the light level sufficient at the moment? 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 commercial led projects we only ever use quality lights with the highest luminous efficacy. Coupled with our unrivalled customer service ensuring complete customer satisfaction from conception right through to delivery.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Commercial LED Lighting Expensive?

LED lighting for commercial purposes initially seems like it’s a lot more expensive than standard lighting for businesses would be, however, when you add up all the maintenance standard lighting requires you'll find its 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 they end up financially in a lot worse position because they don’t take the time to invest in lights that give them a long- term solution.

How Long Do LED Lights 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. LED’s can typically last more than 10 years, but this, of course, depends on the amount they’re used as well as the way there looked after. Customers often say they’ve had no issues with them and had good use out of them for over a decade. Whereas when you purchase non-LED’s you'll often find within 2 years they’ll need to be repaired or replaced because they burn out a lot quicker. This can be annoying especially when you're running a business because much like anybody else you want to purchase a lighting system and know that it's going to be reliable and last a reasonable amount of time, which is why LEDs are becoming increasingly popular on the market because people are realising that getting lights that are only adequate for a short amount of time aren’t suitable for commercial purposes.

Is Commercial LED Lighting 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 lights 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. Overall LED lights are used for commercial purposes because they are significantly more beneficial than incandescent and fluorescent lights are for businesses.

Do LED’s Save Energy?

LED’s have many proven benefits for commercial purposes including being a lot more energy efficient than non-led lights. This means your business could save a fortune just by upgrading your standard bulbs to brighter and more intense lighting. Saving energy is important to any business owner looking to be successful and save in as many areas as possible. LED’s give your business the chance to do exactly this and enjoy the benefits at the same time.
LED Lighting For Your Commercial Project

How Do LED’s 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 exactly this, you'll need to ensure the lights you choose have the capability to dim properly. Getting LED's without this option means your business won’t get the same effect it would with specially designed lights that have this built-in function. Trying to dim a bulb that isn’t made for this purpose could not only fail to work but could result in the bulb being destroyed.

3D Modelling Software

How We Calculate Your New Commercial LED 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 new Commercial 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.
