As we dive into all of the factors to be considered when deciding if upgrading your existing lighting it the right choice for you. We will explore these concerns in-depth to help you make the best decision for your business.
As mentioned before there are many factors to take into account when deciding the best lighting options for your business, and your bottom line. The most common issue with traditional lighting is the operational and maintenance costs associated with outdated lighting.
HID Energy Costs
HID lighting was an industry standard used in most applications over the past decade. Chances are if you haven't updated your lighting in recent years you are using HID lighting. In comparison to modern LED Lighting solutions, a 400w or 1000w HID fixture (most common wattages for parking and area lighting) can cost up to $209 in addition to $525 to operate per lamp, per year, in electricity costs alone.
HID Maintenance Costs
As the lifespan and reliability of older HID lighting are significantly less than our modern LED Solutions. As bucket trucks or lifts are a necessity to reach the elevation required o repair or replace these outdated technologies, hiring outside contractors to replace and repair faulty HID bulbs and fixtures can become very expensive, quickly. On average, it can cost up to $1,200 to maintain a single parking or area light fixture over the course of three years.
HID Lighting Performance
The performance and appearance of your existing lighting can vary depending on the type of HID lighting you currently have installed. This can cause an in-cohesive look to your lighting areas. This not only impacts the safety of your outdoor areas but the effectiveness of your lighting overall.
Our LED Lighting Solutions are superior in each of the categories mentioned above in comparison to HID Lighting. They are proven to be an excellent option for outdoor and Parking Lot Lighting because of how they generate and distribute the light.
