As industrial and commercial electricians in St Albans, London and Hertfordshire, we have over 30 years experience in carrying out commercial electrical work across London and Hertfordshire. This work can involve anything from PAT testing of appliances to lighting designs and installs. In fact, effective workplace lighting should never be underestimated. If you are a business owner looking to increase productivity in a big way, you need to be speaking to an electrician with commercial expertise.
When is the right time to replace office lighting?
Lighting in the office is more than just ceiling lights. Office lighting can consist of signage, promotional areas and emergency lighting. In hotels and leisure outlets, decorative lighting can make a difference to reception areas, hall ways, conference rooms and any area where customers can purchase goods. However lighting is far more than stylish features. Here at Fulcher Edwards we pride ourselves on creating and installing outstanding eye catching lighting systems. Lighting is essential for employee loyalty, customer comfort and of course energy efficiency and low cost maintenance.
If you haven’t given much thought to workplace lighting in recent years, now is a great time to consult a qualified commercial electrician. They can advise, design and install a lighting system which has great functionality and looks the part. Old inefficient lighting systems are costly to run and maintain. They can also commonly cause eye strain and discomfort amongst employees, particularly if they work at computers.
What is the big deal about energy efficiency?
There is a lot of publicity at the moment about energy efficiency. Energy efficiency really does have viable benefits that will see your business achieve real savings – that could be invested elsewhere. Lighting makes up around 20% of the average business energy bill, so it is important that your lighting is not costing more than necessary.
Becoming energy efficient does not mean radical changes need to be made. Changing over from halogen bulbs to LED bulbs will see instant savings being made.
Keeping up to date with changing technology and better performance
Many of the businesses we work with here at Fulcher Edwards seek cutting edge technology with performance. We specialise in designing and installing lighting and electrical installations that bring current workplace lighting up to date and which also looks good. To this end we ensure that all lighting we install in workplaces and retail units is adequate for the needs and is better designed for performance.
Of course lighting design and installation is much more than just screwing in bulbs. We work with many retro companies such as restaurants, shops, and hotels. Larger retro fittings are required to produce adequate lighting for a building. Whereas offices require more functional lighting.
Whatever lighting is decided upon, the aim is for increased comfort and reduced running costs. In turn, leading to increased productivity and consumer spending.
Using the right commercial electrician
To bring your commercial lighting project to fruition, it is important to find a commercial electrician who has the level of experience needed. In fact finding the right commercial electrician for your project will be key to its success. A commercial electrician needs to be able to make timely and helpful recommendations, work professionally and efficiently so as not to disrupt your business.
