Electrical technology is constantly evolving to be more efficient, more convenient, and more cost-effective. If the lighting in your commercial building is old or outdated, you’re likely spending more than you have to on your monthly energy bills. In fact, lighting retrofits could save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars, depending on the size of your space.
At Rawhide Electric Services, we offer lighting retrofits in Longview, Kelso, and throughout Southwest Washington. Our professional, continuously trained electricians have retrofitted lighting for restaurants, office buildings, warehouses, and other commercial spaces. We conduct on-site consultations, free of charge, to help you determine how much energy is being wasted and how lighting retrofits could benefit you.
As previously mentioned, the primary benefit of lighting retrofits is the cost savings. Most utility companies bill their customers in a number of ways, including energy consumption. Lighting retrofits allow you to reduce energy consumption without sacrificing performance. In fact, a retrofit can allow you to update the lighting throughout your space for a more beautiful, modern design that also works to boost energy-efficiency and save you money. There are a variety of rebates available and we will help you identify which incentives will help you maximize your reimbursement for installing energy efficient lighting!
Some of the many benefits of lighting retrofits include:
- Lowered utility costs
- Reduced energy consumption
- Improved lighting design/quality
- Extended lighting lifespan
- Better lighting control
- Fewer short-term electrical issues
- Lowered labor/maintenance costs
- Improved productivity/employee satisfaction
Essentially, a lighting retrofit involves removing outdated and/or inefficient components of your electrical system and replacing them with better, energy-efficient options.
Depending on your unique needs, your lighting retrofit may include any of the following:
- Upgrading lamps and ballasts
- Swapping out incandescent bulbs with LED, halogen, or CFL bulbs
- Installing dimmers, occupancy sensors, timers, and other lighting controls
- De-lamping, or removing unnecessary lighting
Our team will first come out to your commercial property to conduct an on-site assessment of your current energy usage. After our electrical inspection is complete, we will provide you with our honest and professional recommendations regarding your lighting retrofit. We work to streamline the process, eliminate unnecessary downtime, and create a cost-effective solution for your space.
