At Plaxway Ltd our aim is to help individuals and organisations to save money, and the environment by increasing their energy efficiency. If your organisation is not clear about where your energy consumption is being used and spent, then here at Plaxway we can help you with this.
We will come out to visit you to conduct an audit of your existing energy use, costs, suppliers, lighting, heating and specific technologies used within your organisation. Following the audit, we will present you with a detailed report on where your energy is being used and identify specific ways you can reduce your energy usage and costs.
LEDs contain no toxic chemicals or elements such as Mercury, which need to be disposed of safely.
Are LEDs cost effective?
The average household lighting bill is £300 a year and switching over to LED could save you £270, which turns into thousands over a bulb’s 15 year lifespan.
How long do LEDs take to switch on?
Unlike CFL bulbs, which are more efficient than halogen but less-so then LEDs, LEDs switch on instantly. No warm-up time, just instant light.
Do LED bulbs get hot?
LED bulbs run significantly cooler than other types of lighting like halogen or even CFLs as heat is dissipated by metal sinks that take heat away from the light source. This maintains the lifespan of the LED bulbs, however they will get hotter the longer they’re kept on.
Why are LED lights considered a green technology?
Unlike traditional forms of lighting, where the majority of energy is lost to heat, LEDs use around 80-90% of electrical energy for light.
Compare this to an incandescent bulb that only uses 20% of its energy for light, with the rest going to heat.
Do LED bulbs have any toxic materials inside them?
No. LED bulbs do not contain any harmful materials, unlike other types of household lighting that contain substances such as mercury.
