Why look into lighting control?

We are all looking for ways to save money. One major way we can accomplish this, is lighting control. What is lighting control? A lighting control system is a network of controls that allows you to have control of the lights in a space. Not only can this save money, but it produces other benefits. What are these benefits you might ask? Well, let’s name just a few.

  1. Lighting control reduces reliance on others. If we work in an office, we no longer have to rely on our work mates to shut the power down. If we are at home, we won’t be disappointed if our family members forget to flip the switch off. Timers, sensors, and programming logic take matters into their own hands.
  2. Extended life of our lights. Since run time is reduced, so is our maintenance. The less we use our lights, the slower they burn out. Not only is money saved here, but also time and energy.
  3. Dimming can reduce cost. Using light is often necessary. However, dimming can kill two birds with one stone. Dimming provides light, but costs the cost. Green Life Smart Life says, ”  One dimmer dimmed to 30% can save about $500 over 5 years. With, say 20 dimmers, that’s $10,000 of savings in 5 years.” That’s an incredible amount saved!
  4. Appropriate lighting creates a better atmosphere. Happy people are usually the most productive. Appropriate lighting arrangements can heighten moods. In the work place, this proves to be extremely beneficial.
