LED Basics

Are you paying too much for your lighting? LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) can have significant long term benefits for your business:
  • 80% energy saving compared to incandescent bulbs
  • Huge increase in lifespan – up to 50 times longer than standard bulbs
  • Greatly reduced electricity and maintenance costs
  • A choice of light colour including warm white, cool white and even daylight where required and a wide range of different wattages and shapes
  • Instant light with no warm up time
  • Low heat emissions = reduced air conditioning costs and even reduced fire risk
  • Reduced carbon footprint

Why Change to LEDs?

The cost of LEDs is higher than for standard bulbs—fact! However, with low running costs, reduced maintenance, and a much longer bulb lifespan, any initial outlay on LED conversion could be recovered in as little as six months.

Step by Step Guide


Step 1 – Survey

Contact your Account Manager or one of our dedicated team at Lyco for a survey. We will then assess your needs and determine whether advice over the phone is sufficient or if an on-site survey is required. A document detailing your return on any investment in LED Lighting will then be produced specifically for your business. All surveys are completely free, with no initial outlay or risk.

Step 2 – Product Selection

The Lyco team will work with you to select the right light bulbs and fittings from our extensive product range. We offer professional unbiased advice and the product selection will be tailored to meet the needs of your specific conversion programme.

Step 3 – Finance Plan

We have a number of finance options. Payment can be made by credit card or by opening a credit account. For larger projects we can offer flexible finance schemes that allow you to pay as you make the savings. It’s worth noting that several products in the Lyco range can be 100% offset against Corporation Tax in the first year within the Enhanced Capital Allowance Scheme.
