The Ultimate Lighting Guide for Your Business

When it comes to your business being productive and successful, having proper lighting can make all the difference. Commercial lighting is forever changing, and if you don’t have updated lighting, your business could be suffering from it, just ask the team at Mr. Electric of Atlanta! We can show you just how much of a role your lighting plays in your business. If you and your employees can’t see your paper of computers properly, how can you get any work done?
If your business was built and started 20+ years ago and you haven’t updated any lighting, you are in desperate need of an upgrade. In most cases, 20-50% of your business’s budget is consumed by your electricity costs because you have old lighting fixtures in place. Think about how much money you could save each year if you upgraded to the following types of lighting:

  • LED’s -- LED lights use 75-80% less energy and last 25x times longer
  • CFLs -- This kind of lighting uses 75% less energy and lasts 10x longer
  • Commercial fluorescents -- This is an overhead lighting option that could save you 1/3 of your electricity budget each month
  • HIDs -- High intensity discharge lights are much more efficient than your regular warehouse or commercial lighting solutions
  • Halogens -- Coming in at 2x more efficient than incandescent light bulbs, these are great for outdoor use such as security lighting
  • Sensors -- These are great options if you are looking to only have lights turn on when there is movement in a specific area of your business
  • Dimmers -- With dimmers, you can control how bright and intense your lights will be
  • Bi-level switches -- If you have multiple different workspaces that are used at different times, these kinds of lights allow you to have only half your lights on in any given room
