Aesthetically Pleasing
Future Lighting have designed and installed a superb lighting system at a development we manage for the elderly in Sutton.

Results

  • This upgrade has dramatically improved general light levels by at least 25% and is now showing considerable wasted energy savings and eliminated ongoing maintenance requirements.
  • The existing lighting to the rear car park and landscaped areas were standard 25W Fluorescent Bulkheads, without directional diffusers, resulting in 50% of the light output being wasted.
  • All existing fittings were replaced with new directional, vandal-resistant, decorative wall mounted bulkheads that were fit for purpose.
  • These are now saving over 65% of the energy used and have improved light levels dramatically. These fittings have integral dusk-till-dawn sensors and are only switched on throughout the hours of darkness, and will not require any adjustment of settings throughout the year.

New LED lights pay for themselves with the money saved each year

There has never been a better time to invest in energy efficiency. Businesses are looking to combat rising energy prices, reduce their carbon footprint and maintenance costs. It’s good for the economy and good for the planet. Many businesses are being forced to make these changes through the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme. So installing LED lighting is the obvious choice for drastic energy savings and it’s a quick and easy win on CO2 reduction too.
