The Cost of Water Damage

This Winter has seen serious flooding affect many parts of the country, and many properties have been damaged as a result.

However it is a sobering thought that internal escape of water …..that’s water coming from burst or broken pipes or taps left running, or appliances with faulty connections inside a house or office that will account for more than £900m.this year! 

A colossal figure for insurers to pay in terms of compensation.

And its not just the financial implications that are worrying there is the months of upheaval, precious items damaged beyond repair or replacement, and the ultimate increase in insurance premiums and Insurance Excess.

LED Lighting Savings

Saving money on 'necessities' such as lighting has never been so important with rising electricity bills.

How much people actually understand about LED, the new lighting technology, may vary considerably, suffice to say that commonly asked such questions include: What are the benefits of LED Lighting, how do LED lamps differ from 'ordinary' lamps and how much can I save using LED lights? 

Predominantly, the ordinary home has regular Halogen lamps in their light fittings which work at around 5% efficiency with up to 98% of this energy being transferred to heat - not the job the lamp was designed to do! 

However, in comparison, LED lamps emit a miniscule amount of heat whilst still  being able to deliver the same amount of light. In addition, the LED technology used in the manufacture of these lamps ensures they are more durable, lasting up to 50,000 hours depending on usage. 

So if your LED lights are on about 16 hours a day, then your LED lamp would last about 8.5 years and about 35 years if the lights were left on for about 4 hours a day. On average LED lamps last 50 times longer than the regular products saving a significant amount of energy that leads to lower electrical bills.

Generally, an LED lamp can be used anywhere a conventional lamp is being used; LED lighting can be replaced to create the same amount of light - for residential or commercial environment,  retail and offices, warehouses and factories.... saving all important capital on utility bills. Companies who understand the longevity of LED bulbs will also note that replacing LEDs saves additional money through savings made on lighting maintenance and storage of lamps.
