The electricity bills in your commercial space may be super high because of the types of light bulbs and lamps you have. If you know that you have to make an effort to cut down on your energy use and electricity bills, and that you are really struggling and having a problem, talk with the lighting professionals about changing out all your lamp bulbs in the space. Here are some of things you want to know before you remove any lamps or make any changes in the space.
Set Up a Recycling Plan
Before you remove all the old existing lighting lamps and fixtures you want to know where they can go to be recycled. You don't want to throw these items in the trash, since this can be harmful to those who encounter them or even to the planet if they end up in a landfill. Instead, find the right type of recycling center that will take these products, and then arrange pickup or delivery for when the new options will be installed.
Get New Efficient Options
New LED and efficient lighting options throughout the entire space is one of the easiest ways to cut down on energy bills without having to sacrifice throughout the workspace. Not only are these bulbs going to reduce energy consumption and help to lower lighting costs in your commercial space, but the bulbs are also designed to last longer, lowering the replacement need and costs over time.
Have an Energy Audit Completed
You want to have an energy auditing professional come to the property and do an audit to see where all of the energy is being used or wasted, and why the bills are so high. They will be able to target the problems in the space, help you find new options to look into for energy needs, and they can help you make the area more efficient.
Old light bulbs could be sucking the energy out of your building, and causing your energy bills to climb steadily. Make sure before you replace all the lights that you have a lamp recycling option lined up for your old lights, so you don't have to worry about putting them in your dumpsters, or potentially harming someone or the planet because they weren't disposed of responsibly. Once you are able to find out what new bulbs you need, you will be ready to take the old bulbs out and start saving.
