Commercial LED Lighting – Emberton Church
The Church was looking to reduce the problems of maintaining and replacing the ceiling spotlights, which kept failing and resulted in a high level and somewhat difficult operation to replace them. The existing installation involved a number of spotlights being operated by dimmer switches to provide the right ambience for the church services. It was important that the solution matched this need.
A local Olney based company, Light by LED, part of Open China Gateway Group was asked to look at the lighting and offer solutions to help overcome the problems.
As part of its offering Lightby LED offered to project manage the installation. Working with Emberton Parochial Church Council, Light by LED submitted a proposal to replace the existing lighting with new LED Spotlights and suitable dimmer switches. The proposal offered a number of benefits for the church: LED lighting has a lifespan of some 50,000 hours typically 10 times that of the bulbs it replaced and it would greatly reduce the maintenance required. Also the energy footprint and hence running costs would be reduced as the energy consumption fell by approximately 80% using the LED equivalent bulbs.
The comments after the installation were that the new LED lighting system was brighter, sharper, more natural and offered better illumination with or without the dimming function. A spokesman for the Parochial Church Council commented “The lights were installed and completed with little fuss and to budget. We are very pleased with the outcome”.
Light by LED are working with other churches and businesses in the area to help them evaluate the benefits of converting to LED lighting.
