LED Lighting for Real Estate & Property Managers

If you manage a commercial building or apartment complex, long term operational costs are a critical factor to consider. One of the best ways to manage this cost is to reduce energy usage through more efficient utilities, such as HVAC, lighting and water systems. When it comes to upgrading these systems, lighting is typically the easiest and offers the best return on investment. It also is the most tangible improvement a property manager can make, improving the lives of residents, customers and employees through higher quality lighting.

Building LED Lights

LED lights are becoming increasingly popular as a lighting solution for homes, offices and other commercial spaces. They are energy efficient, long lasting and can provide a wide range of lighting options. LED lights are also much more cost effective than traditional lighting solutions. LED lights use very little energy, making them a great choice for energy conscious homes and businesses. LED lights also have a longer lifetime than traditional light bulbs, making them a great investment. LED lighting can be a great choice for anyone looking to save money and energy while creating a beautiful atmosphere.

This commercial office building was originally using T8 fluorescent bulbs in their Troffer Lighting Fixtures. These bulbs were replaced with our LED T8 tubes. As you can see in the images below, switching to LEDs increased the overall brightness within the office space as well as saved significant costs for their business.

Apartment Complex Lighting

Apartment complex lighting is an important factor to consider when designing and constructing a residential building. Lighting affects the safety and security of the residents as well as the overall appeal of the complex. Proper lighting can help reduce crime and make the complex inviting to potential tenants.

The most important aspect of apartment complex lighting is that it should be adequate and evenly distributed throughout the complex. This means that the lights should be bright enough to provide a sense of security as well as to illuminate pathways and stairs. The lighting should be strategically placed in areas that are prone to criminal activity such as parking lots and dark corners of the complex. The lights should also be placed in areas that are likely to be used for social gatherings and for walking around the complex.

In addition to safety and security, apartment complex lighting should be designed to enhance the aesthetic of the complex. This means that the lights should be attractive and not overpowering. The lighting should create a sense of warmth and comfort and be chosen to reflect the style of the complex.

LED lights are becoming increasingly popular for apartment complex lighting as they are cost efficient and last longer than traditional light bulbs. Motion sensors and timers can also be installed to help reduce energy consumption.

Lighting Layout and Design Planning

There are several reasons to choose a photometric analysis lighting plan for your project. The biggest reason is to ensure even distribution of lighting, which is critical for effective illumination. Additionally, this plan will help to ensure that your light configuration is set up for maximum energy efficiency, resulting in significant cost savings over time. It also takes the risk out of purchasing your own lights, as you will be working with an expert with years of experience instead of guesstimating on your own.

Here’s an example of a lighting layout we provided for the exterior of an apartment complex.

In this layout, several LED flood lights were used to illuminate the exterior of the complex. The layout also provides details such as pole mounting height, footcandles, fixture count, etc.

Property Lighting

Property lighting is the process of lighting up private and public spaces to create a safe and secure environment. It is an important aspect of home and business security, as it helps to deter burglars, vandals and other criminals. Property lighting can also help to create a pleasant, inviting atmosphere and increase the aesthetic appeal of the area.

Property lighting can be used in a variety of ways. Outdoor lights can be used to highlight key features of a property, such as a garden, driveway or walkway. Security lighting can be used to create a safe and secure environment, as well as deter burglars. Interior lighting can be used to create a warm and inviting atmosphere, as well as highlight key features of a room.

Property lighting is also an important part of energy efficiency. LED lights require less energy and last longer than other types of lighting, making them an excellent choice for property lighting. Additionally, motion sensor lights can help to reduce energy consumption by only turning on when it is necessary.

Overall, property lighting is an important part of home and business security, as well as creating an inviting atmosphere. With the right lighting, you can create a safe and secure environment, as well as reduce energy consumption.

Commercial LED Lighting Rebates

Commercial LED lighting rebates are a great way for businesses to save money on energy costs. LED lighting is much more energy efficient than traditional lighting, and can help save a business money on their energy bills. LED lighting rebates are a government incentive designed to encourage businesses to switch to LED lighting.

The specific details of LED lighting rebates vary from state to state, but generally they are based on the amount of energy saved by switching to LED lighting. Businesses that switch to LED lighting can receive a rebate of up to 25% of the cost of the LED lights. The rebates can be used to partially fund the cost of the LED lighting, which helps to reduce the overall cost of the project. Here’s an article we wrote on business LED rebates in Michigan.

In order to qualify for a commercial LED lighting rebate, businesses must meet certain requirements. The requirements vary depending on the state and the size of the business, but generally they include having an energy audit, submitting a proposal for the LED lighting project, and providing proof of purchase of the LED lighting.

The benefits of LED lighting rebates are numerous. Not only do businesses save money on their energy bills, but they also reduce their environmental impact. LED lighting is much more energy efficient than traditional lighting, meaning less energy is wasted.
