If you own, run or work for a parking garage, you know the challenges inherent in lighting it. The lights you have now are expensive to run. They’re energy hogs. You’re swapping lamps out because they burn out all the time. During the lamp replacement, you have to hire a maintenance person to replace the bulbs and not to mention that drivers are trying to kill you as they fly through the parking garage to get in and out. When these bulbs burn out, they cause dangerous black holes in your space. These lamps must be on 24/7 with no downtime.
All of these challenges lead to one solution, LED lighting. Generally, you’re talking about a 200-Watt fixture being used to light the various areas of your garage. What if I told you that we could replace that fixture with a 60-Watt LED fixture? Not only does it use 65% less energy than what you’re currently using, but it will last nearly 7 years if you ran it for 24/7 and it requires no maintenance. There is really no downside to replacing what you have now with new LED fixtures except is one thing… the price.
People perceive LED lighting as being expensive and if you look at it purely from the perspective of the initial cost, you’re absolutely correct. They’re more expensive than what a typical legacy lighting solution would cost. When you look at the Return On Investment (ROI) and factor in lamp replacement costs, energy savings and the time wasted replacing lamps, you’re looking at the MOST inexpensive solution available. How can you beat that? LEDs will save you the most money, time and headaches. Make the switch today.
