Benefits of Upgrading to LED Lighting

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 which 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, providing brighter, higher quality light which creates even and consistent lighting which doesn’t deteriorate over time.

Financing

SaveMoneyCutCarbon specialises in assisting schools and other public-sector organisations receive 100% interest free loans from Salix Finance for energy efficiency projects. Our in-house experts can prepare all the paperwork and fully manage the project on your behalf and are experienced in running successful applications to make the most of the available funds.

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. This means less disruption to staff and pupils from maintenance workers and provides further savings that can be put back in to the school.

Best of Brands

SaveMoneyCutCarbon only works with market-leading trusted brands in LED lighting. We have direct partnerships with our suppliers, giving us access to the widest range of products at the best prices which means our customers always get the best value for high-quality products. Additionally, our suppliers back their high-quality products with long warranties for further peace of mind.

Health and Wellbeing

Poor and inefficient lighting has negative effects on mood and wellbeing of pupils and staff. LED lighting can render colours much better than traditional lighting, enabling simulation of natural daylight 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.
