Lighting Upgrades Can Make Significant Savings, Says The Remark Group

LONDON, Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Businesses updating or creating new work spaces should carefully consider upgrading their commercial lighting systems within the project's scope, in order to reduce electricity bills, increase life expectancy of lamps, and noticeably decrease their carbon footprint, recommends the Remark Group, a provider of intelligent business technology.

To highlight areas where efficiencies and cost savings can be improved, a survey of existing lighting should be carried out by reputable electrical contractors. Following this, lighting plans can be designed and tailored to meet the needs of both the business and its employees. An electrical specialist, such as Remark, will be able to explore a wide range of options, procure fittings at the best cost and ensure systems are installed in compliance with health and safety regulations.

A number of modern lighting upgrades now guarantee return on investment, for some businesses within months. Many companies opt for LED lighting throughout their premises, whether offices or industrial locations, as it is proven to reduce electricity bills by up to 90 per cent. LED lamps have a life expectancy of up to 50 times more than the halogen variety and upgrades can also reduce carbon emissions. Not only can LED options be fitted internally, but they can also be added to a building's exterior, for example, to illuminate signage and features of a facade.

The Associate Director at Remark, Russell Howland, comments: "There are many benefits to updating lighting systems, such as lower electricity bills and reduced carbon footprints. LED lights require little on-going maintenance, which is a bonus to the fact that the majority of LED lighting units provide return on investment, in some cases after only months, depending on a business' current systems and usage.

"However, it is important to appoint certified specialists to offer their expertise and advice on how to maximise savings, because risks should never be taken when it comes to electrical projects. At Remark, we can not only look after a project from consultation stage through to ongoing aftercare, but also assist companies to select light fittings that comply with the Government's Enhanced Capital Allowance Scheme. This scheme entitles businesses that have new or replacement low energy lighting products fitted to receive 30 per cent tax relief on the project's installation costs."
