Is It Time To Update Your Office Lighting?
Good office lighting is essential to any office space. Not only do you need to be able to see what you’re doing, but the right light can help prevent headaches and facilitate concentration. The right lighting fixtures can also add the right ambiance to your office space. Finding the right bulbs can make them both attractive and functional.
You may be thinking, “I already have lights in my office that work just fine.” So, how can you know when it’s time to upgrade your office lighting? Keep reading! As always, you know we’ve got some suggestions.
Your Utility Expenses Are Increasingly Expensive
Your business could be paying more than it should for lighting when cheaper alternatives are out there. In this case, “cheaper” doesn’t mean decreasing quality.
LED bulbs are an energy-efficient way to light up a space while cutting down utility costs. These bulbs burn brighter than traditional bulbs and have a longer lifespan, so you won’t have to replace them as often.
You Pay a Good Deal for Maintenance
Depending on how often your office lighting needs fixing, you may not notice how much your maintenance costs. One red flag is needing to call an electrician with certain equipment just to replace a bulb or fixture. That’s an unnecessary expense that can be solved with an updated lighting system.
Your Technology Is Outdated
Like most technologies, the lighting industry is always changing. As more people are becoming concerned about their carbon footprints, the investment in energy-saving technology has grown expedentially. Depending on when your office lighting was installed or last replaced, your business may be missing out on these exciting changes.
Think about it… You could not only make a difference in the office budget, but also the environment. That perk can be great for marketing.
Your Office Lighting Doesn’t Suit Your Business
Some office spaces have different uses at different times. The lighting needs may not be “one size fits all.”
For example, an office space that was once a restaurant will need to update the lighting, as many restaurants tend to have dimmers to create a more intimate atmosphere. Depending on the needs of your company, you may need lighting that can easily be modified for different purposes throughout the day.
The Cords Are Damaged
Time and regular use can cause wear and tear on even the best-made electrical cords. If these aren’t repaired quickly, they can be a fire hazard. Frayed or exposed wires should always be handled by a professional electrician.
Not all lighting issues are evident by the cord condition. You may notice a buzzing noise that’s getting harder to ignore. This could be a sign of a degrading ballast, which makes buzzing sounds as they start to become old and degraded. Like a smoke detector that’s beeping even when there’s no smoke, this annoying sound is to alert you that the appliance needs changing. An electrician can tell you what the specific issue is and what needs to be fixed.
