Energy Efficient Lighting

Smart And Bright

Utilizing energy efficient lights uses less energy and reduces your electricity costs. With lighting technology continuously evolving, the energy efficiency standards continue to rise. When you change out your lighting it can use 25%-80% less energy and can last 3-25 times longer.

Besides the costs, lighting affects your comfort, security, and convenience of your business or home. Different light bulbs emit different colors and shades of light. When designing a space the lighting style and color can change the overall feel and security of the room/space. When installing different lighting our contractors make sure they are properly installed and being utilized to their fullest extent.

Make sure all your fixtures are labeled ENERGY STAR®.

Lighting Tips

  1. Utilize sensors and/or dimmer switches to maximize energy efficiency. Best used in high traffic areas like the living area, kitchen, and bathrooms.
  2. Maximize natural light by switching over to a new energy efficient window design. Adding skylights or larger windows easily allow more light in. 
  3. Paint your walls with a lighter color. 
  4. Use energy-efficient lighting components, controls, and systems.

Our Process

When designing your lighting you need to consider the purpose of the lighting along with the methods to achieve energy efficiency. For example, outdoor lighting serves more than one purpose. It illuminates your home/business’ exterior and landscape, adds security to your entranceways and driveways/parking area, and illuminates walkways, patios, porches, decks, and more!
