Energy Saving

As schools face stringent budgets, the first place to consider savings is reducing energy use. By deploying energy efficient LED lighting in replacement of traditional light sources, schools can save up to 80% on electricity bills.

The savings you make can be reinvested into the school to enhance the learning environment.

Superior Quality

Schools require high-quality lighting that keeps children and young individuals motivated and alert. Traditional lighting deteriorates quickly, leaving discoloured and uneven lighting that can be a distraction to staff and schoolers. It can also cause fatigue as well as being a drain on resources.

LED lighting is far superior to traditional lighting, providing a brighter and higher quality light which creates even and consistent lighting for pupils and staff. LED lighting output remains stable over the lifetime of the lamps ensuring no discolouring or deterioration.

Lower Maintenance

Unlike traditional lighting, LED lighting has a long lifetime and doesn’t require frequent lamp changes, which substantially reduces the burden and cost of maintenance works.

It also avoids disruption to staff and pupils from maintenance workers which aids a pleasant learning environment. It also adds further savings that can be put back in to school.

Health and Wellbeing

Poor and inefficient lighting has negative effects on mood and wellbeing of pupils and staff. LED lighting ensures pupils and staff can carry out activities efficiently without straining their eyes. LED lighting can enhance the wellbeing of pupils and staff by creating reassuring and relaxing environments with the use of ambient lighting.

As LED lighting can render colours much better than traditional lighting, natural daylight can be simulated to support pupil’s concentration, mood and motivation. It also helps staff to concentrate and be more productive, further enhancing the learning environment in your school.

“This was a particularly challenging project as the showers and taps hadn’t been upgraded since the building was opened years ago. We also found and fixed a number of inherent leaks that should improve savings even further."

“The bathrooms look much nicer for guests and the cost of the new showers and taps is covered fully by the energy and water savings they deliver. Further cost savings come from reduced maintenance and replacement needs, with the 5-year Hansgrohe guarantee of quality manufacture.My four-man team completed the project on time in the four days allocated with little or no disturbance to the running of the motel.”

Rowan Chappell, SaveMoneyCutCarbon Field Service Lead Technician

“We worked closely with the hotel management to ensure that the LED retrofit went according to plan without affecting the guests."

"As with any big project, there were challenges but our experience in this area ensured that problems were resolved and the work was completed on time to the highest standards.”

Chris Cliffe, SaveMoneyCutCarbon Field Service lead technician

“Our whole business focus is on reducing complexity, making things as easy and effective as possible. This extends beyond our energy and water-saving work into corporate responsibility and training.”

"The FCC Environment video is an excellent example of how we blend creativity with highest standards of professional production to help organisations achieve their goals."

Mark Sait, CEO SaveMoneyCutCarbon

“This was a large scale project and we used our extensive experience of managing LED retrofits nationally to ensure that there were no logistical problems."

"We also needed to work flexibly to ensure that the smooth running of the hotel was not disrupted while making sure we were invisible to the guests.”

Unai Fuertes, SaveMoneyCutCarbon Field Service Lead Technician

“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."
