Benefits of LED Lighting for Schools


With energy savings of up to 80% with no capital required, it’s no wonder many schools are switching to LED lights. Many public sector organisations can access funding to invest in energy saving technology through Salix.

Salix, in partnership with the Department for Education (DfE), works to reduce energy usage in individual academies, sixth form colleges, free schools and Multi-Academy Trusts (MATs) across England.

Here are some of the key benefits you can expect from switching to LED lights.

· Low maintenance cost. An LEDs lifespan can be over 50,000 hours with consistent light output. LEDs are a well-established technology meaning the need for maintenance is minimal. This is supported by long product warranties to give you peace of mind.

· Increased energy savings. LEDs use up to 70% less energy than older lights, that’s a big number! 20% of the world’s electrical usage goes towards lighting. Therefore, lowering the carbon footprint of a business makes choosing LEDs an important factor in the fight against climate change too.

· Improved working environment. The benefits of LEDs are linked to the fact they emit light that is closer to natural daylight than original fluorescent lamps. Natural light has been shown to improve concentration, energy, mood and decrease the occurrence of headaches. Businesses specifying LED lights can benefit from a more motivated and healthier workforce.

· Intelligent fittings. LED lights can be specified with controls, such as daylight harvesting and sensors to save more energy. Being fully dimmable, LEDs have an extended lifetime and makes for greater energy savings over its long lifespan.

Improve student’s mood and performance by increasing light levels with LED Lighting

Studies show that the majority of children and adults in today’s modern world are not getting enough natural daylight.

Not getting enough natural daylight can have serious negative effects on your health. For example, it is closely linked with low mood, low energy and S.A.D (Seasonal Affective Disorder).

The lack of light actually changes the chemical balance in our bodies, triggering thoughts and emotions that can negatively impact your mood and health.

One of the key benefits of choosing LED lights in a workspace is it can actively reduce symptoms of low mood and depression. It does this through choosing the correct LED colour temperature.

LED Lights can be set to any colour in the light spectrum allowing us to mimic natural daylight inside our schools.

Another huge benefit of specifying LED lights is that they can be fitted with intelligent systems that will change the colour of the lights throughout the course of the day to match the days natural light cycle.

All these benefits lead to a more productive and healthier environment for both students and teachers combined. Couple this with the modern, stylish look of the lights, the benefits of LED lights are substantial. Get in touch with our team today to get a free energy audit!
