Benefits of LED lighting

At JRC, we fit LED lighting in the home, office and outdoors. LED just stands for Light Emitting Diode and although many refer to them as LED bulbs – in fact they are not. LED’s are tiny semiconductors encapsulated in plastic, which protect their components and help focus the light.

We believe that LED lights are the future. One day we might even look back and be shocked we ever used other methods to light our homes.

LED lights have been widely used for some time now in industrial and commercial situations, but have recently become suitable in domestic premises. JRC are experts at LED lighting installations in Glasgow and we thought we’d share with you why we think they are so good, so here’s the top benefits of LED Lighting.

Benefits of LED lighting
  • Long lasting
    LEDs are rated by manufacturers to operate under normal conditions for approximately 50,000 hours, remarkable compared to a 1000 hour lifespan with incandescent bulbs. This means LED lights last about 10 years and therefore reduce your maintenance costs!
  • Suitable for all environments
    LEDs are geared up for harsh environments. Did you know they function from -40F to 180F with no delay or required warm up time for them to function?
  • Extremely efficient
    With standard light bulbs, around 80% of energy is wasted heat as only around 20% of the electric current is used to produce light. On the other hand, LED lights are able to utilise between 80%-90% of the energy provided in the generation of light.
  • Environmental benefits
    In addition to saving on your electricity bills, you are also reducing energy usage and in turn your carbon footprint.
  • Variety of colours LED lighting comes in a range of colours, you can use them for functional purposes or for decoration.

Just look at these videos, this is a WIFI smart phone controlled LED lighting system. It’s pretty smart as it can have the lights at home come on as GPS picks you up nearing the house! Available for indoors and outdoors.

JRC Platinum Promise Guarantee

NICEIC Approved Contactor

JRC is an NICEIC approved contractor – a move to eliminate any uncertainty and gain trust with both existing and potential clients. We recently covered what NICEIC is but did you know that as members of NICEIC there is a Platinum Promise Guarantee and Complaints Procedure as we believe that as a consumer you should have complete peace of mind.

The platinum promise applies up to SIX years from the completion of work by us.

The platinum promise commits to making sure that installation work is safe and meets the required regulations. Of course, if you have any problems with any of the work we completed – do not hesitate to get in touch with us. However, you can have peace of mind that NICEIC protect you and as part of the Platinum Promise, will support you through the resolution process and help make sure the installation work is right.

In the event that we are no longer able to rectify work, the NICEIC will commission remedial work using an alternative contractor.

“It offers trust and confidence to each of our clients” – Jamie Currie, JRC

None of our customers ever have or should be in a position where this NICEIC procedure has had to be used in order to protect them. However, we understand that employing a tradesman can be a daunting task and as NICEIC approved contractors we guarantee high standards and peace of mind.
