LED Lighting Can Reduce Your School's Energy Consumption
LED lighting solutions can drastically reduce energy consumption. LED lights typically require 50-60% less energy than fluorescent tubes or incandescent bulbs.
Our teams of experts will assess your school’s energy needs to identify an LED lighting solution that best suits your goals and budget. We partner with you from start to finish, removing stress and confusion from the process.Get Started with LED Lighting
How LED Lighting Can Reduce Energy Consumption:
Some LED lamps consume up to 70% less energy than an incandescent, fluorescent or halogen light bulb! LED lamps convert 80% of the much reduced energy into light, and only 20% into heat while incandescent, fluorescent and halogen bulbs convert 80% of their energy to heat and only 20% to light!
LED technology uses a semiconductor versus incandescent technology, which uses a filament. This means LED systems are cool to touch, more durable, and shock resistant thanks to their epoxy resin housing.
Today, many LED lights can perform at greater than 70% of original lighting output for up to 250,000 hours! That translates to 28.5 years if the continuous light for 24 hours a day. Or 85.6 years if on 8 hours a day!
By comparison, a typical metal halide lamp will last only 2.5 years burning 24 hours a day! That’s only 41 days for incandescents and 291 days for fluorescents under 24 hours per day of operation!
LED longevity means reduced replacement and maintenance costs!
We Reduced Concord University's Energy Costs by 67%
The university sought to lower lighting energy expenses and eliminate costly maintenance expenses. Enter Helios Energy. We helped increase the level of illumination inside the classrooms, dormitories, student activity, and athletic facilities. Additionally, we helped improve lighting levels across the many parking lots, pathways, and other exterior spaces, which were critical to increasing safety and security for the students, faculty, and staff.See Our Case Study
The Benefits of LED Lighting
LED lights typically require 50-60% less energy than a florescent bulb or incandescent tube.
Improve Lighting Efficiency
LED replacement lights typically emit more light per watt of power consumed.
Reduce Maintenance Costs
Some LED tubes do not require an external ballast and last 10x longer than fluorescent tubes, greatly reducing time-intensive maintenance. More importantly, as LED replacements are less frequent and less time-intensive, that means fewer interruptions to business operations.
Extreme Cold and Heat Effectiveness
LED tubes are unaffected by extreme temperatures unlike fluorescent and incandescent bulbs, which might produce little or no light if too hot or cold. This makes LED lighting the safe choice for cold and hot environments!
Increase Student Performance
Improving lumens, the amount of visible light, and eliminating lights that “flicker” has been proven to increase productivity by up to 20% in learning environments!
Instant Lighting and Frequency/Motion Switching
LED lights require no “warm up” period. This means they instantly switch on at their maxiumum efficiency with no added degradation to their lifespan, which is usually associated with frequently turning lights on and off. This makes LED ideal for areas needing motion sensor lighting or frequent illumination.
Reduce On the Job Inquiries
Studies show that increasing light quality and brightness can reduce workplace injuries by up to 50%.
Reducing energy production waste, easing eye strain, and providing a well-lit environment are associated with up to 15% gain in workplace quality of life.
Improve student mood and reduce stress
Students report increased satisfaction and learning conditions with improved lighting!
Decrease HVAC Costs
Traditional lighting converts 80% of power into heat while LED lighting converts on 20% of consumed power into heat. Therefore, conversion to LED results in measurable reductions in HVAC maintenance and operating costs!
