Overheads such as electricity, heating and cooling continually eat into the profit margins of your business. With power costs continuing to rise, saving money by using energy wisely is smart business sense, as well as being good for the environment and enhancing your company’s reputation. The installation of office lighting controls will have a positive impact on your bottom line! With new stand alone technology, such a system can be relatively inexpensive, yet provide energy savings year after year.
Improved Energy Efficiency
Intelligent Environments Limited specialise in helping you make your offices as energy efficient as possible, using an extensive range of energy saving controls to reduce those wasted dollars where lights or heating is left on in unattended areas, or offices are continually over lit. These areas of energy saving add up, and have a positive impact on your bottom line!
With light level sensors your office lighting control system can be designed to take advantage of natural light levels and use less artificial lighting wherever possible.
Turning Lights Off
If office lighting controls are installed, when offices are vacated, the lights can be controlled to turn off automatically. Instead of being permanently lit, presence detectors can ensure low traffic areas are lit only when necessary, saving energy + reducing costs.
If a staff member is working late, occupancy sensors will override pre-set lighting programs to provide safe pathway lighting. The standard office lighting control set up will be automatically overridden to ensure safety always comes first.
The very successful Australian NABERS method of rating commercial buildings for energy efficiency and sustainability has arrived in New Zealand.
