3 Ways to Help Extend the Life of Your Business Lights

When it comes to business expenses, reduction is the name of the game.  Energy efficiency is not only important for the environment but by implementing energy efficient mechanisms, you can save your business a lot of money that would have been otherwise wasted on energy that goes unused.  Business lights are one of those areas where tremendous energy efficient improvement can be made and you can extend the life of your business lights at the same time!

1. Check the Wattage

One of the most common lighting mistakes homeowners and business managers make is using the wrong lightbulb wattage for a lighting fixture.  When you use a 60 watt lightbulb in a 40 watt fixture, your lightbulb is going to wear out much more quickly than it would have if the right wattage had been used.

2. Automatic-Off Lighting Feature

One great and easy way to extend the life of your business lights is with lighting that has an automatic on/off feature.  For example, if it is controlled by motion, lighting in an area or room would automatically turn off after a certain period of inactivity (that you have predetermined).  This will help ensure that the least amount of electricity and lighting is being wasted when someone isn’t even in the room – a major problem in the office place.

3. Lighting Automation

Lighting automation can help give you ultimate control over lighting in your business and will also help save money through energy efficiency.  With lighting automation you can pre-set lighting ‘scenes’ for specific scenarios.  Further, you can integrate lighting sensors as aforementioned that will automatically turn lighting on or off based on physical activity.  And further, you can remotely control lighting so that you can turn lights on or off from a smart device or computer, even if it is the middle of the night and you are at home.
