Care homes require all different types of lighting; decorative as well as practical lighting is required for bedrooms, warm white lighting may be preferred for dining areas and brighter white lighting may be needed for medical or activity rooms.

Within each specific range SaveMoneyCutCarbon can offer choices on colour temperature, wattage, lumens and fitting type, guaranteeing that you will always find the most suitable product for your application.

Energy Savings

With most care homes operating 24/7 there can be negative effects from outdated lighting systems such as high operational costs and impacts to the environment. Compared to traditional lighting sources, LED lighting uses up to 80% less energy which can substantially reduce your energy costs, saving money that goes straight to your bottom line.

Additionally, your care home’s carbon footprint is vastly reduced, increasingly important in a world where society is more discerning about environmental practices.

Reduced Maintenance

As LED lighting has much better quality than conventional lighting and lasts longer with no requirement for regular bulb replacements, maintenance in a care home can be greatly reduced, saving further cost.

Less maintenance means less unnecessary disruption to residents and staff, aiding a pleasant and comfortable atmosphere in a care home.

Wellbeing of Residents and Staff

Inefficient lighting can also have negative effects on mood and well-being. Conventional light sources are low in quality, they are prone to deterioration which causes orange patchy lighting, and, subject to failure causing dark shadows and flickering which in a care home is not good for patients or staff. Dark shadows can induce fear in patients, especially those suffering with dementia and poor-quality lighting can effect staff concentration and productivity.

LED lighting provides high-quality, natural, uniformed lighting which opens spaces making them feel more pleasant and comfortable. It has been proven to help the care home residents’ quality of life by creating a calming ambience which aids sleep, helps people feel good and encourages social interaction. It also ensures staff can carry out their duties more securely and safely and improves productivity.

Lighting Controls

Lighting controls offer more flexibility and control over the lighting such as dimming, zoning and scheduling lighting to suit the many different functions in a care home.

As an example of this, lighting controls can be used to create a natural daylight pattern with changes in colour temperature and brightness to suit the residents’ natural body clocks, creating a brighter light in the morning to a warmer light for the end of the day. The extra benefit of lighting controls is it encourages further savings by only using the lights when needed.

“We had been planning the full refit of our lights for a couple of months and having chosen SaveMoneyCutCarbon the fitting team were with us for a couple of weeks before Christmas."

“They were able to come in after the school activities had finished in the afternoon. The Team were very amenable to working around any occupational restrictions we had with clubs and so on.They were a cheerful bunch and left the school tidy everyday with the furniture returned to its usual positions.There were a few changes to the fittings etc. that were noted during the fitting from the original survey and these were put in place without any problems."

Martin Blake, Business Manager at Nicholas Hawksmoor

“LEDs were the next logical step after our earlier lighting improvements but we could not at first secure the budget, given other pressing curriculum needs. However, we worked through the Diocese with SaveMoneyCutCarbon to take the opportunity to apply for Salix funding and the whole process went pretty smoothly."

"Overall, the standard of work from SaveMoneyCutCarbon was impressive. After SaveMoneyCutCarbon secured the interest-free loan, they moved very quickly to install the LED lighting, ensuring that the work was completed during the summer holidays, which was excellent. The early impressions of the new lighting are very positive, particularly in the library area and staff room. I’m sure we will see more benefits as the winter draws in.”

Anthony Murray, Head Teacher, St Bede’s

“The installation team was very professional and the managers responded positively to requests for changes as the project was delivered."

"There was a strong business case for choosing LED lighting and we’re looking forward to reduced costs over many years.The lighting is much improved, a lot brighter and clearly better quality, which I’m sure we’ll notice even more as winter draws in.”

Beverley O’Shea, Business Manager, Bishop Challoner School
