Whether you have an office space, commercial building, or retail shop we want to save you energy and money starting in spring and continuing through the summer. Here is how!
Switch to LED Lights
Having to constantly change lightbulbs as seasons change can not only get expensive but it can be a real hassle. However, LED lighting lasts longer than traditional incandescent light bulbs. They are also designed to use less electricity in comparison to incandescent light bulbs. Also, LED bulbs are not just for the interior of your building, these energy saving bulbs can be used on the exterior of your building too.
Take Advantage of Natural Lighting
As seasons change, we are fortunate to see more sun! This means you can take advantage of the natural lighting. Move and shift your workspace around to utilize the sunshine during the day.
In addition to the gift of beauty, there are a lot of other health benefits to increasing the natural light in your building. Being exposed to natural lighting throughout the workday often leads to better sleep night for your building’s inhabitants. Natural light also boosts the vitamin D in your body which can increase productivity.
Get Rid of Incandescent Bulbs to Save Your HVAC
Incandescent light bulbs are inefficient because most of their energy output is converted directly into heat, not valuable light. Where does all this extra heat go? And it usually flows through your commercial HVAC system causing the system to work much harder to expel extra heat, causing it to draw more energy and thus reduce the lifespan of the system itself.
