How much does it cost to change a light bulb ?
A major lamp manufacturer carried out a survey in 2012 & came up with the labour cost of changing a lamp under normal commercial conditions to be an average of £5.00 (excluding the lamp) for a one off change.
This took into account whether a maintenance engineer attended, or a solicitor’s clerk stood on a chair.
Moreover did you know lamps deteriorate over time producing less light (up to 70% less) but the fitting still burns the full energy , so a fitting operating at 30 watts could be costing 70 watts.
A much more economical way of doing it is to change a complete area at the same time
The following benefits are achieved :
- Labour cost drastically reduced
- Light levels & lamp colour become uniform,
- Light degradation reduces, delivering more light
- Energy efficient lamps installed to reduce costs
