More and more schools in the Netherlands (and the rest of the world) are switching to LED lighting and are taking maximum advantage of all the benefits. LEDs are a very effective light source for schools. In this article, we will explain the main reasons for using LED panels to save money on lighting at schools.
Save money on lighting and increase study performance
Every school looks for ways to save energy and money. But what if we tell you that you can save money and also boost student performance? Or that health and sustainability in classrooms can be increased at the same time? That, of course, sounds too good to be true. But the reality is closer than you think. By switching to LED lighting, with the emphasis on LED Slim Panel Lights, these aspects can be improved.
Saving energy in schools: easier than you think
Lighting costs a school on average half the electricity bill. If there is a possibility to reduce these costs, this reduces electricity consumption. There is, of course, something to say about that. The less money is spent on electricity bills, the more money becomes available for staff, study materials and improvement of the study offer.
Installing LED panels is done in a jiffy
Installing LED lighting has direct consequences for the annual energy bill. On average, energy consumption will decrease by 80% on an annual basis. Installation is also a snap. You remove the old fixtures and you can immediately replace them for LED panels. The lamps then stay on for years, because the lamps have a longer lifespan on average than fluorescent lighting. This ensures that you can easily recoup the investment within a few years.
Student functioning in combination with LED lighting
The LED lighting is much safer in all respects than fluorescent lighting. The panels reduce CO2 emissions, which improves the health of teachers and students. Light also has a lot of positive influence on human functionality, mood and cognitive capacity. When an outdated lamp is present, for example, fluorescent lighting, the lamp can flicker in the classroom. The student’s concentration is seriously disturbed here. It can also lead to a large number of health problems, such as headache or fatigue.
Due to these problems, the school performance of the student will seriously stagnate. LED panels to improve the quality of the light and the light output. The light from the panels becomes a lot whiter, brighter and the chance of flickering remains nil. Students benefit as much as possible from good light, which gives the concentration a boost and increases the mood and energy level.
Switch to LED Panels and save money on lighting
Recently we have received more and more questions about our LED panels. More and more people are discovering that fluorescent lamps are becoming less popular. The fact is that there are more disadvantages than advantages to the use of fluorescent lighting. Curious about the most important advantages of LED panels? Then keep reading. In this blog article, we will deal with the most important aspects so that afterward you have enough information about our panels.
LED Panels: the massive rise
We have been making frequent use of halogen lighting for decades. This is because many people think that this form of lighting is ‘reliable’. LED lighting, on the other hand, is an innovative form of lighting. The lamps are being used more often and this has a number of reasons. However, many people are still skeptical and do not dare to take this step, while it should be a lot more logical.
First of all, we can tell you that our panels are an investment for the long term. This means that the lamps are (once only) high in the purchase, but will easily pay for themselves in the long term. Thanks to the revolutionary LED technology, the panels are able to generate a maximum light output at a low wattage. The light output is defined in Lumen. The more Lumen a lamp has, the higher the light output will ultimately be.
Save money with LED panels
As described, the lamps run on a low wattage and a high light output can be generated. Because the lamps run on low wattage, they are also attractive in terms of price. The fact is that the lamps use less energy than halogen lighting. This ensures that you will save considerably on energy bills.
The energy in the Netherlands is simply expensive because a high tax surcharge is charged on the use of energy. It is therefore nice that you as an entrepreneur or private individual can save money on lighting. So: Keeping money is the best thing there is. 🙂
