Benefits of LED Lighting

Governments across the world are committed to lowering their carbon footprint over the next few years, and changing lighting to LED can help reduce emissions quickly and efficiently.

Lighting Services can assist in achieving a reduction of CO2 emissions and enhancing energy efficiency through LED lighting solutions. With retrofit solutions now available, Lighting Services can provide an LED solution for any commercial or industrial application.

Lighting Services recommends LED as an alternative to other light technologies for many reasons, just some are listed below. For more information and to talk to one of our sales team about your options, please call 0117 972 0030.

Energy Efficient

LEDs use around 90% less energy than a standard incandescent lamp, and around 50% less energy than a fluorescent lamp. LEDs use less energy and less electricity, and as they have a long lifespan, costs are also saved in maintenance and replacement costs.


An average LED lamp will last around 20 times longer in comparison to a standard incandescent lamp. This makes them perfect for light fittings located in high ceilings or hard-to-reach areas.


LEDs do not have fragile components like glass and filaments and are tolerant to shock, vibration and extremely cold temperatures. Due to their durability, they are a great solution for external applications, such as car parks.


LED produces very little heat making them cool to touch, and means they can be left on for many hours without being a potential for burns and fires.
LED lamps don’t contain mercury, lead or glass like standard lamps, and therefore can be recycled safely too.


Producing 50% less carbon and made of non-toxic materials, LEDs are recyclable and considered ‘green’ compared to other lamps on the market.

Zero UV Emission

LED has been produced to emit almost no UV compared to traditional lamps, this means that it is safe and suitable for UV sensitive objects or materials such as museums and churches.

Cost Saving

As LED lamps are energy efficient, and last much longer, they do save money when it comes to energy costs. Compared the Halogen lamps, LED equivalent can save around 90%.
