Parking lot lighting is essential to a safe and comfortable environment and provides patrons with the feeling that they are secure in parking at your facility. Parking lot lighting used to not be a priority for many building owners and was considered more of an aesthetic option rather than an addition that provides safety and an appropriate amount of lighting. Low level lighting is an invitation for crime and lawsuits for the property owner. Vandalism occurs more regularly in low lit areas and crime is more likely to happen in areas where someone believes they have a better chance of going unseen. If your facility is more than fifteen years old, then it is likely to have an inadequate amount of lighting. Burley Electrical Services explores parking lot lighting in greater detail below.
Parking Lot Lighting Design
Designing a lighting system is a complicated job that requires the skill and experience of a professional electrician. There are a few facts that every building owner should be aware of when it comes to lighting around their facility. Take a look at your existing lighting system and evaluate the following things; how bright is the light in your parking lot? If there are dim areas that are exposed to small amounts of light, it may be time to revamp your parking lot lighting. Make sure the light is consistent in the lit areas of your parking lot. Check the efficiency of your light bulbs and wattage being used. A change will save you money in the long run.
LED Lighting Upgrade
An excellent addition to any lighting system is LED lighting. LED light is a great source of color rendering and has a considerably longer life than other light bulbs. Although LED lighting is more expensive than other options, it is well worth the expense and will last you a very long time which will end up saving you money in the end. When installing new lighting for your facility’s parking lot, it is best to choose the best and most efficient equipment available to save money and provide the longest lasting and brightest lighting.
