How Smart Lighting Can Improve Your Business's Efficiency

Saving money and improving efficiency in the workplace are amongst the top of most businesses' priorities. You will probably find that lighting is one of your company's main expenditures, but it doesn't have to be. Here at Whizz Sparks electrical contractors in Wembley, we can offer you comprehensive commercial electricity solutions which can save you money, and improve your carbon footprint.

LED Lighting

Workplaces, particularly offices, have been using traditional fluorescent lighting for years. But LEDs (light emitting diodes) hit the news last month, when Amsterdam appliance giant Royal Phillips announced a prototype LED light which is significantly more energy efficient and cheaper than florescent lighting.

Whilst this prototype LED tube light is not expected to hit mass markets until 2015, we can offer you energy saving LED solutions today. The LED bulbs we use are extremely energy efficient and last up to ten times as long as compact fluorescents – saving you more money in the long run.

Solar Panels

Solar panels are no longer seen as a fad reserved for eco-obsessed hippies; they are in fact saving businesses money up and down the country. Installed onto the roof of your premises, they capture the sun's light using photovoltaic cells, and convert this into electricity to light up your property. And there's no need to worry about the unpredictable British weather – solar panels will still work on cloudier days. Solar panels could slash your business's energy bills by up to 70% and reduce your carbon footprint – it is a renewable energy source which doesn't release any harmful pollutants.

Occupancy Sensors

Although we may not admit to it, most of us at some point or another are guilty of leaving a room at work and not turning the lights off. If this room is a warehouse or boardroom and the lights are left on overnight, that's your business's money going down the drain. We offer occupancy sensors which operate based on movement, turning the lights on when people are in the room and automatically turning them off when the room is unoccupied.

By installing occupancy sensors in your building, you can almost completely eliminate the unnecessary waste of electrical energy, improving your carbon footprint and saving you valuable money.

At Whizz Sparks, we can offer your business all these solutions and more. Contact our dedicated team of electricians in Harrow and throughout London for more information today.
