lighting audit process low hanging fruit

Lighting Audit Process Low Hanging Fruit

Main advantages of LEDs lie in its ability to deliver reliable low energy consumption over a  consistant 50,000 hrs plus period, without need to  change a light bulb or ballast  with an added benefits of no maintenance, no flicker, starts instantly, no waiting to warm up, no ultra voilet, its lighting for the 21st century

We look at things  differently

Not all lighting audits or  surveys are the same. At LED LuxLighting we look at things  differently.We do not recommend like for like  or rely on  existing number of  old lighting  fittings  but  carry out our own Dialux lighting  desgin provding  you with  the correct  number of    and  spacing of  lights fittings that are  required  to provide sufficent Light output in your  business. There are  no  additional light fittings provided that  may have been the coase with  conventional lighting, That’s a thing of the past  It means you get  sufficient  light  output, reduces your  day to day electricity consumption and   the electricity bills come down too.Now that’s a win win.

Maintenance costs can be calculated based either on your own records or on an estimated  lamp purchases for each accounting year.

You will hear anecdotal evidence that lighting costs are generallly smaller than you think, maybe its  been  put out there by  utility companies. But your electricity billls   should be monitored  more  closely, much like  any invoice that  comes across your table, look at the  find  details and check what  they mean, rather than  letting electricity bills be  just another bill that is paid by direct debit and it  seems no one  knows or cares what the  elecricity bill costs every month its simple another bills that must be paid.

But I hear you say   “how do I  monitor my electricity consumption I have no way of doing this” Read more..  LED LUX Lighting blog titled “Monitoring Electricity” will review how monitoring electricity consumption  on a  fifteen minute  cycle for each 24 hour period  providing benefit of reducing  impact of over usage of electricity consumption- its a great tool  where your business is in manufacturing or engineering or where you simple need to  measure your electricity bills and manage  outcomes more closely

Holistic Approach

For many it makes sense to buy new fittings. For others a more holistic approach is required, one which looks at everything relating to existing from aesthetic, upgradability, infrastructural needs, appropriate light performance, installation demands to how new lighting can improve performance of your business. LED LUX Lighting Audit takes the holistic approach and delivers clear practical information to help you make an informed decision

LEDLux Lighting  are here to  help  start  saving you  money on your electricity bills every month.Do you check where electricity savings could be made by monitoring or maybe  you simple don’t have  time in your  busy schedule.

Energy Efficient Business

are businesses paying more for energy than it should?

Does your business pay more for energy than it should?

From a recent survey carried out by the Daily Telegraph, out of 760 senior managers surveyed two-thirds were in the dark about how their business bought energy: almost 46% had no ideal about their company’s energy costs and 54% had no idea who was responsible for energy costs

Yet energy usage is a large part of any companies budget the research also found that, of the senior managers who know what their costs were, a fifth admitted to spending more than £250,00 a year, while a quarter spend more than £100,000

Energy Management is a High Priority in reducing costs

So, the questions that one can ask how much money could be saved by monitoring and measuring . LEDLUX Lighting conduct energy wastage assessment, and its findings will show   the  impact on how wasted energy is having  on  company cash flow

It’s obvious energy management is a high priority  in reducing costs,especially since this is an area of business where significant cost savings can be made without affecting cash flow resources.

Is your company charged with an energy decision maker(EDM) /responsible for maintaining  an energy plan within your business reducing daily costs? or has  energy cost  savings being  discussed at any recent  meeting attended  in the past  month.

Working-out where money is being wasted

Working out where money is being wasted on energy consumption may be less obvious

Partnering with LEDLUX Lighting  will help identify areas where energy savings can be made  and it might  come as a  surprise that   simply switching off corridors lighting/ staff facilities and  when no one is around  could  be the  difference of  hundreds of  Euro spent unnecessary.

One of the easiest ways to reduce energy waste – stop paying money for electricity that is  not needed every kilowatt saved goes straight to your bottom line and stays there moth on  month, year on year, increases your Capex via energy savings month on month.

It’s worth considering how many extra sales/ fees you’d need, to make the same amount of profit. And it doesn’t stop there – energy saving comes with other benefits such as

  • A more comfortable working environment
  • Reduced energy bills can be used to fund new jobs
  • Reducing your exposure to future energy price rises
  • Improve your cash flow
  • Improve your SMEs green credentials
  • Wider benefits to society: Reduced carbon emission footprint

With electricity prices predicted to rise by over 25% in the next five (5) years, many businesses are looking to manage future risk by investing in energy efficiency.

Reducing energy costs can be achieved through medium cost measures such as upgrading conventional to LED lighting which does not have a direct impact on your bottom line because of the energy savings made month by month, unlike any other energy efficiency upgrade, lighting upgrade puts money back in your account every month so in effect its pays for its self

ROI can range from 9 months to 3 years depending on hours of operation in addition Energy Credits allowance are available reducing ROI period

So, if you wish to find out more about how to reduce your energy bills, and reduce future energy prices contact LEDLUX LIGHTING https://ledluxlighting.com/free-lighting-audits/

Do you know

A company with a 5% profit margin over 3 years, a €500 a year saving from LED energy efficiency makes the same profit as €30,000 of additional sales

Light up the Darkness with efficient LED Lighting

  • Up to 80% of traditional installation are out of date and inability to meet current design and emergency lighting requirements.
  • fluorescent  T5 tube last approx. 12,000 – 18 (approx. 4 years)
  • LED life duration  40,000 – 60,000 hrs.  or at 12 hours per day/ 7 have average life of 14 years or   five times longer with no bulbs replacement or maintenance during LEDs life time.
  • LED lights consumes 90% less electricity than fluorescent, halogens and metal halide. Local dimming, corridor functions can be added without due concern or disturbance
  • Gathering data on lighting costs is relatively straightforward. If you know the power (watts) of the bulbs or fittings used, you can work out energy consumption in kWh

LED the  Mature Light Source

Energy lighting cost in business accounts for a significant amount of operational budget for building owners more than they may realise. It applied across the whole spectrum of building from healthcare, industrial, retail and manufacturing industries.

Lighting is probably one of the quickest ways to take out a huge chunk of costs from a   day to day operating costs without compromising  or disruption  your operations. LED as we know produces improved light output compared with fluorescent’s at hugely reduces running costs on a watt by watt basis

Quick example of LED efficiency takes   5ft 58w fluorescent including ballast its consuming 67watts in total including the ballast compared with 25w 5ft LED tube an   energy saving of 63% for every hour its running in your   business

We carry out lighting design based on existing  footprint of each area or space to minimises the number of fittings   replace existing lighting with more energy efficient LED fittings and where appropriate an adjustment to LUX levels are applied to ensure areas are not over or under lit. Resulting in further percentage savings in annual electricity costs annually.

With increased proven Lumen per watt output or light output compared with traditional lighting not only reduces LED fittings but also lowering energy costs still further.

We provide LED lighting direct to professional customers enabling them to reduce   energy consumption and cost and reduce environmental impact.

lighting way to prosperity [ireland’s electrification]

Lighting way to prosperity [Ireland’s electrification]

The ESB has been around for less than 100 years or so.

1929 saw the first hydropower Shannon scheme come into operation. Opened by WT Cosgrove in July and generating electricity in October of the same year. The state-owned Electricity Board(ESB) came into existence in 1927.

The very first electricity pole was erected on 5th November 1946 at Kilsallaghan north Co Dublin

The first LIGHT of the scheme was switched on in Oldtown CO. Dublin in January 1947.

It was going to be some years before all of Ireland would have access to Electricity.

Prosperity arrives in Ireland

USA, UK   other European countries now had electricity, Lighting up their homes and factories

The job of providing electricity to every home, street, factory was enormous. A plan was devised and the state was divided into 792 areas along parish boundaries.

Remember, there is still no phone, no way of communication except by word of mouth. So, the obvious way of spreading the word was from  local pulpit community church every Sunday. Priests and vicars talked about the ESB project from their pulpit the communities were being united with letters from the USA and UK about electricity.

Irish communities were too about to gain this wonderful invention called electric light.

Think for a moment, people in Ireland were still in the dark ages while the rest of the world were being lit up with   electric light bulb, this new-fangled invention   was coming to a rural townland, village, town city near you   that would change the very essenes of how Ireland was going to change in the 20 century. Ireland had arrived.

 

The approach in every townland was the same, The ESB through the local priest and vicar  from their pulpit asked home owners/ farmers/ business owners if they wanted to sign up for electricity, then held local parish meetings. The first phase of electrification ran from 1946 to 1965

The ESB much like to day with rural Internet connection deemed where it was uneconomic to run electricity lines  to  just one or two   houses. The   parishes with the highest take-up were the first to be connected

It was the talk of the community- they had little else to talk about except the weather, turf cutting, helping their neighbour save the hay, oats’ Ireland in the 50’s was losing its men to England and the USA because of economic hard times with little money to put bread on the table.

Switching on the light when you returned home at night was by lighting candles or oil lamps (locally know as Tilley lamp).  Oil was available but only the odd family owned a tractor or car. Popular mode of transport was the Raleigh Bicycle, Pony & Trap and people walked from place to place   the train was available for longer trips.

Some facts about electrification in Ireland

  • One million Poles erected
  • 50,000miles of electrical wire strung or equivalent to 80,467 km

·        £36 million cost of rural electrification or about € 1.5bn in 2017

  • 80% of rural homes connected by 1965
  • Home cooking started to change from open fires to electricity cooker
  • Ireland Joined EEC in 1973 and became better off
  • In 1900 only thirty percent (30%) of people lived in towns and cities
  • TV became popular in the 60’s. Cinemas declined in popularity
  • The Ericsson’s Bakelite Black phone started to become popular in the late 60’s

Ireland is now the hub of communication to every corner of the world

Quick look at how LEDs are different

  • LEDs (light emitting diodes) advantages are many. So, lets us name some of these advantages
  • Lower energy consumption or Lowers your electric bills by half
  • Long life of bulb by almost three times longer
  • Smaller in size but better light out
  • Switches on instantly like Incandesces
  • Fluorescents metal halide and halogens take time to warn up before providing light output.
  • Have you notice Traffic lights are LEDs, Train signals are LEDs, Camera Flashes are LEDs, Airport lighting is LEDs, Hotel Lightings is LEDs, Agricultural sheds, milking parlours are LEDs even Pig and poultry sheds are LEDs

LED lighting is all around us. It’s time you switched to LEDs and start benefitting from the changes too

  • Professsional lighting design takes account  of work environment- dont get  caught with less  it could cost  lower productivity  and more sick days
  • Switching to LEDlighting improves visibility
  • Decreases errors by 50%
  • Better LED lighting  results in   more cheerful environment and  improves productivity
  • Eliminate shadows and glare
  • Well designed  LED lighting can mean fewer mistakes especially in  logistics/ pick & mix and near computers
  • Reduces levels of absenteeism
  • Reduced risk of workplace accidents
  • Decrease headaches, eye strain, neck pain
  • Health aspect-new health and safety requirements
  • Individual requirements-Task, Local, General, Cleanroom, Cold room, Specialist lighting, Security
  • Lighting control
  • Emergency lighting
  • Size of the area to be lit
  • Purpose for which it will be used

 

Who’s responsibility for lighting

Employers have a duty not to endanger staff or other health and safety statutory requirements while at work

Business owners must provide lighting that is safe and does not pose a health risk  to staff and others who may use the premises such as delivery drivers, customers, visitors, maintenance operators

Monitoring lighting

Ensuring broken or blown bulbs, fluorescent that maybe fading , flickering and are outside its shelf life is quickly replaced with  correct lamp-If  conventional lighting is causing  high maintence levels/  bulbs blowing then  its probably time to  consider switching to  LED lighting

Replacing old conventional lighting with LED is a good option  considering LEDs eliminate on-going maintenance and draining  resources There is  no longer need of purchasing of lamp spares and routine of lamp changing

Under management of Health and Safety at Work legislation must ensure adequate safe lighting is provided always with elimination of possible risk staff

 

Professional Lighting Design

Lighting replacements should be undertaken by experienced Professional with know how in LED lighting replacement’s 

Benefits of switching to [ LEDs]

One of the many benefits of switching over to LED lighting besides the elimination of maintenance and relamping cost and the health risk of using conventional lighting, once you  switch over to LEDs  and  start collecting  the savings.

The savings  go straight to your bottom line and stay there every month every year  for ever more.

Think for a moment how many extra sales, you would you need, to make the same amount of profit  at no additional costs to your business

Correct level of lighting will help to maintain better environmental working conditions, retain staff, maintain productivity and will increase productivity-so think carefully about benefits of switching to LED lighting for your business

Flicker: can cause discomfort and fatigue and may even cause epileptic seizures in some people. Its therefore important to avoid-so check are staff taking  more sick days or complain of poor lighting?

Glare-occurs when one area is brighter than the average brightness. Stroboscopic effect,maybe cause from alternating electrical supply and  machinery will appear to be  stationery or moving in a different manner

Fluorescent Tubes: produce ultra violet (UV) radiation which can cause irreversible damage to retinas and  may cause cataracts.

Are your employees /staff safe working under fluorescent tubes day in day out  are there more sick days/ time off?

When fluorescents were initially introduced in the earlier part of the 20 centuries   as “new lighting” it was hailed as an invention that  finally put light above  our heads

During the 50 and 60s when more research was carried out on conventional lighting the medical profession were concerned about the ultraviolet (UV) radiation and the hazard it may cause to eyesight  working under fluorescent for long periods of time

It was not until the mid-seventies(70s) that it was found that retinal injury was possible when length exposure was experienced

Today most scientist studying optical radiation hazard believe UVR (Ultra Violet Radiation) is a factor in some forms of cataract

CFLs could be a harmful source of UV radiation to select individuals that may be sensitive to sunburn.

Halogen lamps used mostly in retail- operate at high temperature and emit significant amounts of ultraviolet(UV) radiation and spoil shoe and clothing displays. Are  harmful to the skin and cornea of the eye when are used close to customer and staff for extended periods-LED lighting removes this risk and enhances product displays

Metal Halide lighting   is another source of risk in the workplace producing high levels of  radiation usually at levels that is far beyond halogens and like halogen should be fitted with a protector shield.LED  lighting should now be considered as the only source of eliminating risk to staff and customer’s alike

Did you know. metal halides may excess the level of illumination of a bright summers day and can be the reason or indeed  is capable of damaging eyesight before people can avert their eyes. Metal halides and halogens also emit high levels of  Ultra Violet (UV) radiation.

Fluorescent Metal Halide must be disposed of in a safe manner returning goods to retailer for safe disposal-fee charged for its  safe disposal

Conventional lighting contains mercury and lead content

CFL (compact fluorescent lights) contain mercury and their continued use is questionable- Especially in Healthcare, Nursing homes, Care homes

One of the many benefits of switching over to LED lighting besides the elimination of maintenance and relamping cost and the health risk of using conventional lighting is that, once you make the savings they go straight to your bottom line and stay there every month every year. Think for a moment how many extra sales, you would you need, to make the same amount of profit and at no additional costs to your business. Customers  react in different  ways  ”why has no one told me about it before now I could have been saving thousands of euro every year…. “

LED lighting is low on maintenance costs, high on quality of light out without flicker, without noisy operation, with lifetime over three (3) times the length of conventional lighting such as metal halide, fluorescent compact fluorescents. LED lighting is here to stay. Switch to LED LUX LIGHTING

It’s the only way of helping  save our planet, switch off conventional lighting, switch on LED lighting and enter the 21st century.

Looking from space through the eye of satellites our cities are darker compared to conventional lights that  light up our skies and cause danger not only to our environment but to  flight path of aeroplanes that  cris cross our skies.

Think before you erect your next security flood or  sport lighting installation. Think LED LUX Lighting
