The Business Case to go LED this Winter

October 1st 2019

Lighting technology has come a long way; there are many advancements which have led to safer, more effective lighting solutions. One of these is LED lighting. There are many benefits to LED lighting, yet in the past LED has only been available at a much higher premium when compared to alternative lighting options such as halogen lighting. Now, though the price of LED continues to increase, their benefits remain as intriguing as ever. Despite their slightly higher price tag, LED lights are actually more cost-effective than their counterparts as they last longer and are more energy efficient. LED light hire also means that you don’t have to worry about bulb replacement; therefore, avoiding any hidden costs.

Energy Efficiency

One of the biggest selling points of LED lights is that they are incredibly energy efficient; they boast an incredible 95% energy efficient rating, compared to 5% for traditional halogen bulbs. This means that LED lights consume far less energy. This can be extremely useful during the winter as well when energy bills tend to increase; at least lighting will be costing less.

Better Working Conditions

Due to the colour and brightness of LED lights, they can make for a much better working environment. LED lights produce a white coloured light as opposed to the warmer toned halogen bulbs. This makes it easier to work in poorly lit environments. In addition to this, the light produced by LED’s is much more focused than other lights which help the light appear brighter and therefore providing focused lighting for detailed work to be carried out.

Low Maintenance

LED’s can last up to 11,000 hours, which means they don’t have to be replaced very often ensuring maintenance is low. When you hire LED lighting you don’t have to worry about replacing bulbs, removing the maintenance entirely. With the knowledge you won’t have to replace the bulbs, or very rarely at least, you won’t have to worry about purchasing bulbs or fitting them.


Unlike other traditional bulbs, LED bulbs don’t get hot which makes them a lot safer. In addition to this, unlike some other bulbs LED’s contain no toxic substances which could pose a risk to the environment and yourself.

LED Light Hire

Depending on your lighting needs, there are a variety of LED lighting solutions available for hire. For the larger working environments LED floodlights would provide necessary lighting for work being carried out whilst simultaneously reducing shadows for a clearer working environment. For harder to reach and smaller spaces; LED stand lights can provide you the flexibility you require.
