When building or redesigning an industrial property’s lighting, you will want to choose the right lighting. The right lighting can be both energy efficient and provide great light to boost productivity. When choosing industrial lighting, you will need to pick the right fixtures for the building and the right bulbs. Burley Electrical Services would like to help you find the right lighting for your industrial property by sharing a few tips and considerations.
Industrial Lighting Cost
When looking for light fixtures do not base your decision only on cost. You may want to get the cheapest light fixtures that you can find. However, cheaper only means sooner replacements. Cheap light fixtures will burn out much faster and require the need to be replaced. Within a short period of time you will need to buy more light fixtures. You are only saving money at the time you buy your light fixture, but there will be additional costs in the short term future. Not only will you need to spend more money on light fixtures, but also to have them installed. It makes more sense to invest in a quality light fixture that will last and have them installed once. You will save money in the long run when investing in quality light fixtures.
What Color Light is Best for Working in a Warehouse or Factory?
You can get different color bulbs for your light fixtures. The color of the bulb can range from a white, bluish white, to a yellow tone. Depending on the nature of the industrial property, the color preference may be based on aesthetics or brightness. Other light colors may be based on how it can aid the productivity of the business. As it may not be very helpful, you will need to decide which color light bulbs is better suited for your needs. Not only do you want to choose a color light bulb, make sure to stay consistent. Use the same brightness and color light bulbs. It will make the property look better and it is easier to replace bulbs when they are all the same.
Light Produces Heat
Certain light fixtures and bulbs will create heat. This can make energy efficiency much more difficult. When looking into light fixtures for your business building, be careful which light fixture you use especially in small spaces. Small rooms such as lobbies and offices can become warm very quickly if the wrong light fixture is used. Using smaller light fixtures can help reduce the heat they produce in small spaces. Larger light fixtures are best for large space such as warehouses, storage areas and large open stores.
Are LED Light Quiet?
Most businesses do not want to have light fixtures that give off a humming or buzzing noise. These noises can be very distracting and irritate employees and guests. If you need a more peaceful environment invest in LED light fixtures. Not only do LED fixtures last longer as well as their bulbs, but they also don’t make noise. If your LED lights are making a humming or buzzing noise, you may have a loose connection that needs immediate attention.
