Lighting Audits

Lighting can make up a large proportion of your energy bills. We offer free Lighting Audits for commercial premises. By undertaking a Lighting Audit we can give you accurate running costs of existing lighting systems and provide a detailed report of how this can be improved. Typically, the best savings can be made where there are 250 light fittings or more and they are on for 50 plus hours a week. In this scenario savings in excess of 60% can be made with a 2 year payback. As a result of upgrading the lighting system, dramatic improvements in the quality of light as well as reduced running costs can be achieved.


Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, provided you have over 250 light fittings and 50 hours or more of usage per week. We set these criteria so that we can ensure the proposals that are presented to you after the audit will give you a 2 year payback or less.

What is the process of a Lighting Audit?

A lighting specialist will visit your premises to ascertain the light levels you require in order to work comfortably and safely. They will then do an audit of your existing lighting and then give you a costed proposal, including payback periods for changing your lighting to more energy efficient lighting.

How much disruption will there be when upgrading the lighting system?

Disruption will be kept to a minimum. During the audit there will be little or no disruption. If you then decide to have the lighting upgraded we will work with you to keep the disruption to a minimum.

What are the typical savings I might make by changing my lights to energy efficient lights?

Upgrading your lights to energy efficient lighting, typically, you can save up to 40% of your existing lighting costs.

My lighting is only 3 years old. Can you still make a significant difference to my lighting costs?

We have come across instances where we can make significant savings on relatively new lighting systems. Quite often the lighting has not been designed or specified correctly or, more importantly, with the objective of keeping the running costs to a minimum.
