Coda Electrical Services have been involved in energy saving solutions since 2006. We have been involved in all aspects of energy saving concepts such as LED lighting, occupancy microwave sensing technology, power factor correction and variable speed drives . All of these applications produce instant energy savings from 25%-80%.
LED Lighting retrofitted in an existing building will reduce energy consumption by 50% minimum and with occupancy sensing technology you can save a further 80%. We also guarantee all light fittings and globes with a minimum 3 year warranty and up to as much as 10 years. Emergency and exit lighting is a cost which cannot be overlooked,but with our emergency battens and exit lights the energy consumption is 50% of existing fluorescent lighting e.g.: fire stairs and car parks. Emergency lights can also be fitted with occupancy sensing technology to save a total of 80% on existing fittings.
We also guarantee emergency and exit lights for up to 3years which means there is a further saving on annual emergency and exit light testing.
Coda can also certify your emergency and exit lighting as we are qualified to do so. There are further savings apart from energy savings. ZERO maintenance for up to 10 years.
Our LED fittings have an average life span of 10 YEARS and with voltage calibration and occupancy sensors the lifetime of our LED lights are further extended. Power factor correction can save up to 30% of energy in a building with a payback period from 1- 2 years. Power factor correction reduces the apparent power to real power.
For example, a fluorescent light which really consumes 36 watts as per specifications, can actually be consuming 50 watts. By installing power factor correction, the 36 watt light will consume 36 watts as it should. Variable speed drives for motors such as lifts, escalators, air-conditioning and industrial motors are where the biggest savings are made due to the massive amounts of power they consume – up to a minimum of 35% can be saved by using variable speed drives. Simply put, variable speed drives produce power on demand.
For example, air conditioning in most existing buildings reduce the flow of cooling or heating thru dampers while the motor is running at full capacity. Variable speed drives reduce power as needed therefore, the motor not only runs more efficiently but due to the variance in speed the life of the motor is greatly extended. This also means maintenance e.g.: wear and tear is reduced dramatically.
