Why You Should Hire An Energy Efficient Lighting Expert
Are you in charge of maintaining your facilities lighting? Have you been studying all of the benefits that LEDs can bring to your business or company? Don’t make the common mistake of thinking that any old electrical contractor or lighting distributor is the answer. Trust me, I have been called to re-quote an entire commercial high rise that apparently just had it’s lighting upgraded. The sad part was that whoever did the job left the tenants in the dark. The common areas and especially the hall ways for each floor was not adequately lit. Today, standard light levels are much higher in commercial spaces. They should be around 500-700 lux. Hiring the wrong people to upgrade your lighting can cost you big time. The building owner will have to redo the entire lighting project and if they choose not to, then be prepared to deal with recurring tenant complaints and eventually watching them leave to another building. Now with that being said, lets get into some reasons why you should consider hiring a lighting and energy efficiency expert.
1. Their Primary Focus is Lighting and Energy Efficiency
Everybody has a specialty. Whether if it’s cooking, digital media, surfing, or accounting, we are all experts in our own fields. Then wouldn’t it make sense to hire an expert when it comes to your lights? Energy efficiency experts know their industry, they understand all the nuances and can foresee many things that a person outside of that field may not. They have many connections within the industry and can tap into it to make the best decisions for your next project.
2. Their Knowledge Will Save You Massive Amounts of Money
Imagine how much energy a 15 story commercial high rise consumes in one year. Lets take an example from my own data base of a building from downtown Edmonton. They spend around $60,000 per year in energy on there lighting. Converting the entire building to LED drops this number to about $30,000. Wouldn’t you want to pocket 30K each year if you knew how? The answer is obvious, but for many building owners and managers this seems to be a hurdle. Lighting experts can generate energy analysis reports showing return on investments and savings from lowered maintenance costs. Plus their team is professionally trained and will manage the project from start to finish.
3. They Know The Lighting Technology Brand And Fads
We’ve all had that experience hearing or reading about a cool new product, going out and buying it, then later finding out that it doesn’t live up to what we were expecting. You don’t have to go through this again with your lighting. Let the experts decide which products to install for your unique project. It will save you lots of time and frustration.
4. They Have The Same Goals In Mind As You Do
As a CFO, CEO, or head of operations, your job is to spend budgets wisely. An energy efficient lighting expert’s primary concern is saving you money. Their line of work is driven by lowering energy consumption and maintenance costs. Which should be a target for all businesses.
5. They Pay For Themselves
Running a business is a lot of work. Think about how many different types of vendors there are. Each one offers a unique skill set and expertise in that area. Most of the time, when we try to handle things outside of our expertise it ends up costing us more in the long run. It is a smarter decision to have it done right the first time. Why not consider partnering up with a lighting expert? They would virtually eliminate the lost time and money spent on lighting maintenance costs. Plus, you can be assured that your facilities lighting is in good hands.
