Outdoor Lighting Installation, Upgrades & Maintenance

The Benefits of Upgrading Your Commercial Outdoor Lighting

Dated exterior lighting can create a host of problems for your business, but the good news is that upgrading outdoor lighting is a pretty straightforward process. In most cases, it’s as simple as retrofitting your current light fixtures to LED lighting. If your lighting system is considerably older, it may be necessary for a complete replacement, but this is usually more of a design choice than a functional one.

Regardless of your project specifics, upgrading your outdoor lighting will reap benefits in several ways.

Lower Your Energy Bills

LED lights are significantly more energy efficient than conventional ones like fluorescent and incandescent bulbs. LEDs are built on a different technology than older bulbs which allows them to produce a better, more powerful light with a fraction of the power.

The energy savings of switching to LEDs make the transition a sound financial decision. You’ll save on your lighting bill and reduce your cooling costs since LEDs don’t generate much ambient heat. LEDs also have a very long lifespan — up to 100,000 hours, meaning you’ll save on maintenance and replacement costs without worrying about replacing bulbs every couple of years.

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Not only do fluorescent bulbs consume more energy than LEDs, they also contain toxic materials and heavy metals like mercury. When a bulb is broken or improperly disposed of, that mercury can be released into the surrounding air and water.

LEDs don’t contain toxic chemicals and consume less energy than CFLs, making them a popular eco-conscious choice. If your current light fixtures are dated, it might be time to upgrade simply because it’s better for the environment.

Improve Your On-site Security

Opportunistic vandals and thieves frequently take advantage of security lapses. Well-lit outdoor area deters intruders and ensures your building’s occupants are safe and secure.

Outdoor lighting also plays a part in security by improving the picture quality on video surveillance. CTVs can’t catch faces and actions in dimly lit areas, making them better targets for crime.

Improve Aesthetics & Curb Appeal

If your business sees customers or clients after dark, your building’s exterior lighting will be the first impression you make. In addition to standard outdoor lighting, there are a number of options available that will enhance the aesthetics and curb appeal of your property. For example, you can buy colored LEDs to give your building some vibrance at night or highlight landscaping features.

Popular Outdoor Lighting Options For Commercial Properties

When it comes to outdoor lighting fixtures, there are just about as many styles and options to choose from as there are for interior lighting. If you’re not already a lighting pro, the number of options can be overwhelming. Understanding the different types of outdoor lights and their intended function can help narrow down the options that would be best for your location.

Bollards are poles or posts that are installed in the ground around a property. While not every bollard has lights, there are a wide range of attractive and functional bollard light options to choose from.
