Developing LED technology enables manufacturers to offer a lighting of an increasingly better quality and the investor gets huge energy savings, all while maintaining standards and improving both comfort and lighting. This makes the managers of educational institutions increasingly inclined to upgrade. Although it may seem that it generates additional high costs, it turns out that the end result enables enormous savings - in fact, after a short time of use.
An example where decision for modernization was taken after the economic evaluation was "Dębinka" from Poznań (Social Primary School No. 3 and Social Gymnasium). At this school, Lena Lighting replaced fluorescent luminairies with LED ones while saving more than 50% energy, thus reducing operating costs by more than half. It turns out that after taking into account all purchase and installation costs, the estimated investment will be paid back in the second year of use.
The school has installed modern and energy-saving luminaires of Lena Lighting:
• FACTORIA LED EVO and FACTOR LED EVO in the gyms,
• NECTRA LED IP44 and COMPACT LED in teaching rooms, corridors and sanitary rooms.
We learn in conversation with the Administrative Director Adam Grabus:
“The purpose of lighting replacement in Dębinka from fluorescent to LED luminaires was to improve light quality while achieving energy savings and reducing operating costs. Because of the different functionality of the rooms and their different finishing – we modernized i.a. didactic rooms, corridors, gyms – the selected lighting had to be differentiated both in terms of technical parameters and the way of assembly. We were concerned about the complexity of the service – preparing a project meeting the standards and our expectations as well as delivery of all required lighting.
Such support was obtained from Lena Lighting SA from Środa Wielkopolska, which I rate as trustworthy. Engineers representing the company assessed the state of our lighting prior to upgrading, then prepared a professional luminaire layout and delivered it on time. The effect is excellent. Thanks to the new illumination, the surface is uniformly illuminated by gentle light, without glare. We no longer have problems with dust, flickering and fluorescent lamps changing their colour and requiring continuous replacement. And most importantly – we have significantly reduced operating costs. Electricity bills have halved! We are 100% satisfied, and we consider an uneasy decision to upgrade to be a bullseye!”
