If you’re like most people running a business or home, you’re no stranger to the importance of lighting efficiency, and LED lighting upgrades if you want to improve energy savings, but did you know there are three things that many experts do to make sure that they’re pocketing as many savings as they can.

Not only that but considering that lighting can consume up to 40% of power in businesses, imagine what you could be missing out on.

  • LED lighting upgrades – Are you keeping lights on unnecessarily?

Turns out our grandparents were right all along. Although it may seem obvious, turning lights off when not needed is a great way to reduce power costs.  Easier still, why not get light sensors and timers expertly installed to do the job for you?  You’ll be amazed how much can be saved over a year.


  • Maintenance is key:

Remember the old saying, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”? It goes for lighting maintenance as well.  Many of Australia’s biggest facilities and manufacturing plants closely monitor their power consumption and will tell you that regular maintenance of their lighting systems, including cleaning them, can make a difference to performance.  Not only that, but regular maintenance will also help to identify potential problems before they become one!

LED lighting upgrades – Review your existing lighting system with an expert:

When did you last bring in an electrical expert to review your lighting system? They’ll look at your whole lighting system, including if the positioning of lights is still relevant, and advise you on the most cost-effective solution for your needs and budget.  This includes LED lighting upgrades and any relevant government incentives you could take advantage of.

We carefully design a new lighting installation to ensure the best performance and plenty of light. The new LED panel lights for offices are fantastic with greatly improved lighting quality of the fluorescent bulbs they often replace.

But, be warned.  When it comes to LED lighting upgrades in Sydney and other parts of NSW, there are a lot of cowboys out there that could put your premises at risk and may not deliver the outcome you hoped for.  So, ALWAYS consult with a reputable and licenced electrician.

So there you have it!

  1. Switch off when you can
  2. Keep your lighting maintained, and
  3. Review and update your lighting system (and upgrade to LEDs ASAP if you haven’t already and take advantage of any govt incentives!)
