Ask Ovia: Why are you replacing the fluorescent with LED equivalents?


0

Column where you can ask your lighting questions to Ovia Head of Lighting, Mike Collins, and his team of technical experts. Q: What are the best financial and technical justifications for replacing large-scale installations of fluorescent lamps with LED equivalents? I often work in a very large college and that’s a question that asks me a lot. LED lighting is increasingly being seen as crucial in helping to improve the environmental footprint and reduce energy consumption. As a result, we expect the LED market to continue to grow exponentially in 2021 and beyond. There has been a sharp drop in LED prices in recent years, with increasing sizes, and today there are alternatives to LED bulbs for nearly every traditional lighting fixture available. This makes replacing large fixtures a cost-effective and straightforward process. The case of LED versus fluorescent lights is strong. Lighting technology has come a long way in the past decade and LEDs are rapidly replacing traditional lighting. Today they provide high-quality lighting, increased energy efficiency, reduced heat, no UV emissions and requires less maintenance Old poor-performance lighting can be costly to replace and maintain and many commercial customers choose to upgrade to LED technology. Retrofitting an LED in place of an existing lighting system can be a practical and less hassle-free option, as well as much cheaper than installing an entirely new system. It will reduce running running costs, while saving money on annual maintenance, as LED lights have much longer life. Check the Toolkit feature in the Scolmore app and access the Ovia Lighting Cost Savings Calculator for costs and energy savings across the product suite.
