Benefits of LED Lighting – Up front and personal

In the world of lighting, LED has become an unstoppable force. It is now difficult to envisage a refurbishment or new build that does not feature LED lights within its lighting scheme. There are huge benefits in terms of energy and cost savings with lighting bills cut by up to 90%. Yet the widespread adoption of LED lamps and fixtures has been held back by confusion among specifiers and commissioning clients. British manufacturer Integral LED has chosen a novel approach in an attempt to demystify the process of retrofit lighting by presenting the tangible bonus of a swap to LED upfront and online.

Integral_921_05Contractors and homebuilders can now access a free energy saving calculator that allows everyone to assess the benefits of LED retro-fit lights. The website is open to all and does not require any buying obligation on behalf of the user. It provides a practical means of sourcing a replacement lamp, downlight or panel by initially helping the user to visually identify an LED alternative to an existing incandescent, halogen or fluorescent light-source. The Integral LED website then offers a range of products displayed according to the total amount of light (lumens) output for each replacement light. It is therefore possible to select a whole inventory of lamps and fittings for a current building project; but it is here the extremely useful bit of the calculator kicks in!
