LED Lighting in Institutional Settings
LED lighting offers many benefits to offices, educational facilities, medical centers, etc. A retrofit of your lighting system can help you adapt your lighting to improve savings, comfort, security and aesthetics. LED lighting has also been shown to improve occupant health and satisfaction and reduce absenteeism.
The main benefit of an LED retrofit is the saving of energy. Our LED lighting offers you the opportunity to take advantage of technology that is more efficient, lasts longer and produces better quality lighting. LED lights can save you up to 80% on lighting energy consumption. Our LEDs are available all different shapes and forms commonly used in the industry. Common luminaires such as fluorescent tube lights can be replaced with our LED tubes that have a lifespan of over 50,000 hours.
Lighting System Retrofit Options
Depending on the purpose for installing LEDs, you may choose to retrofit your current fixtures with LED lamps, or replace the entire luminaire with an LED fixture. While retrofitting your fixtures may be the lower cost option, replacing your fixtures will give you new equipment that will last longer, reducing the burden of maintenance costs and improving aesthetics.
Intelligent Lighting Controls
By retrofitting your lighting system you have the option of installing lighting controls. Occupancy sensors, light sensors and dimmers are examples of controls that can enhance your savings and occupant satisfaction. Intelligent lighting control systems are widely used to help achieve significant energy savings by preventing energy waste or to comply with building codes or energy conservation programs. The networked systems generally allow a single user to control a single light or group of lights from one central system. In more sophisticated systems, control software allows for “logic statements” and varying levels of automation, in order to increase the amount of intelligence that goes into lighting control.
Lighting control systems do not simply turn lights on or off at scheduled times. They can also:
- Regulate light output
- Redistribute through zoning
- Adjust for comfort
- Detect light required through sensors (motion, occupancy, and daylight harvesting)
