Q: How much more efficient is LED lighting than incandescent or halogen lighting?
A: LEDs are without doubt the leading lighting system in both energy efficiency and cost reduction. An LED light can convert 90% of its input power to light, whereas halogen lights convert just 30% of input light and incandescent lights about 10%.
LED lights are very efficient for your organisation’s budget. A single Green Lighting LED bulb can provide an assured 50,000 hours of use. It saves money not only on energy costs but also on replacement and maintenance costs.
Q: How many lights will I need per square metre?
A: The number of lights you need for a given space is based on a few important factors, such as the type of light and the lighting effect you’re after for the space. The rule of thumb in LED down-lights is they should be spaced at 1.2 metres to 1.5 metres distance and also 1 metre from the wall.
Q: How long will my installation take?
A: The time taken for an installation depends on the area size and the number of lights needed. Generally, for commercial properties of around 1 day for a shop and up to 3 weeks for an entire shopping centre, the time taken is between 1-3weeks. Of course we will work with you to ensure that there is minimal disruption to regular trading hours.

LED bulbs use low voltage, which is why they are completely safe as opposed to other lighting systems. Additionally, LED Lighting is resistant to vibrations and shocks and doesn’t contain mercury even in colder surroundings.
