Commercial Electrical Service in Buildings: Consider Cost Effectiveness
If you own a commercial or industrial building in the Okanagan, you know the importance of efficient lighting. Hydro bills can add up quickly in a large commercial space. If you’re looking into commercial electrical service you’ll want to consider the following costs:
- Lighting Fixtures
- Energy consumption
Choosing the right lights for your space should fit within your initial budget and be as efficient as possible. When installing your lights, take into consideration where in your commercial space the lighting will have the maximum impact. Additionally, choosing LED light bulbs will lower your hydro bill in the long run. If you need help choosing the right fixtures, placement, and bulbs, we recommend contacting your Kelowna urban electrical contractor.
Urban Electrical Contractors: Helping You Find the Right Bulb
Before you purchase a fixture or plan out where you want your lights, we recommend looking into finding the right bulb for your space. Did you know that it only takes a 14-watt LED to produce as much light as a 75-watt incandescent? We recommend LED lighting for commercial spaces to save on energy costs in the long run. You’ll also want to consider the brightness. Most commercial spaces choose brighter lights as is affects employee productivity. Typically, it’s harder for employees to stay focused in poorly lit areas.
Another consideration when picking out the right light bulbs is the colour of the bulbs. Some bulbs will cast a cooler shade, while others will make the room feel warmer.
Commercial Electrical Service: Outdoor Commercial Lighting
In addition to installing efficient lighting inside your commercial space, we recommend installing outdoor commercial lighting as well. Adding outdoor lighting can add a level of protection and security to your building. Depending on the relevance to your particular business, outdoor commercial lighting can also make your building stand out and look more appealing. If you’re worried about your exterior lights being tampered with, we suggest lights placing lighting fixtures high up, or choosing street lamps that are too tall to be tampered with. The team at Krueger would be happy to help you decide on the appropriate lighting solutions for based on your specific space, needs, budget and the existing look of your building.
