1. A reduction in CO2 emissions
CO2 is harmful to the environment and a huge contributing factor in global warming. Through reducing energy consumption by installing low carbon LED lighting, there is a significant carbon emission saving. As well as being a more carbon friendly company, low carbon lighting can help businesses conform to and stay ahead of environmental legislation changes.
2. A saving on energy bills
LEDs need a lot less in the way of energy to function. An LED system needs significantly less electricity to run than a conventional one, therefore operating at a fraction of the cost. Here at Carbon Reduction Technology we expect our customers to make a full return on their lighting upgrade investment within five years.
3. LED lighting is brighter and more uniform
LED lighting is brighter than conventional lighting and so provides a higher level of illumination for users. Through the use of lens technology, Carbon Reduction Technology are also able to provide lighting which is more uniform than standard lighting – this means that the high quality of the illumination doesn't diminish as the user gets further from the primary light source.
4. LED lighting has a longer life span and is more reliable
LEDs are more reliable and have a longer life than traditional lighting so the cost of replacing bulbs goes down, along with the consumption of materials needed to make replacements. Additionally, Carbon Reduction Technology fit all lighting units with a unique micro-processor which optimises the unit in accordance with the five key variables of LED lighting. The micro-processor manages performance, energy consumption and prolongs life-expectancy.
5. LED lighting can be retrofitted into old light housings
With the advantages of LED lighting so apparent an obvious question is, “Why isn’t everyone doing this?” The perceived cost of a full lighting refit can be off-putting for many business owners, more so than the financial benefits of the lighting once installed. The real beauty of using Carbon Reduction Technology lighting is that we can retrofit practically any original housing. This means that a full refit isn’t required; we can simply install the new lighting straight into an old system if desired. The financial saving covers not only the cost of a full refit but also the cost of disposing of the old housings.
