Businesses consume far more lighting energy than homes, so if you’re looking for a simple and cost-effective place to start, addressing your business’s lighting solutions offers ample opportunity.</p> <h2>Upgrade Light Bulbs</h2> <h4>Incandescents</h4> <p>“Out with the old” should be your mantra here. Incandescent light bulbs are far from efficient, emitting 90 percent of energy as heat – not light.</p> <h4>Compact Flourescents?(CFLs)</h4> <p>The curly cousin of long-tube?fluorescents,?CFLs?can be used in place of?incandescents?in standard light sockets. They contain mercury and should be handled with care; however, they use 75 percent less energy and last 10 times longer than?incandescents.</p> <h4>Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs)</h4> <p>Lasting 25 times longer than?incandescents?and using 75-80 percent less energy, LED lighting options have recently come down significantly in price. To get the most bang for your energy buck,?LEDs?are a top choice.</p> <h4>Metal Halides (HIDs)</h4> <p>High intensity discharge lights are extremely efficient at producing large quantities of very bright light and are an excellent choice for warehouse and commercial settings. Be sure to talk to an electrician to get the best color spectrum to suit your needs.</p> <h4>Commercial Fluorescents</h4> <p>Using 1/5 to 1/3 the energy as?incandescents?and lasting 10 times longer, these?fluorescents?offer flexibility in various commercial settings.</p> <h4>Halogen</h4> <p>Twice as efficient as?incandescents, halogens produce a very bright white light that is well-suited for outdoor applications such as security and stadium lighting.</p> <h2>Take Advantage of Technology</h2> <h4>Dimmers and Timers</h4> <p>Light dimmers and timers deliver just the right amount of light just when you need it, reducing energy use and costs. They also improve security while you are away and can enhance the functionality and ambiance of your business.</p> <h4>Wireless Lighting</h4> <p>The future of lighting, we’re not talking battery-operated, but fully automated lighting powered by remote control and smart device applications. The technology of this solution offers you the capability to monitor usage and costs, with the added convenience of on-site and remote functionality.</p> <h2>Find the Perfect Solution</h2> <h4>Custom Solutions</h4> <p>Mr. Electric<sup>?</sup> will perform a complimentary evaluation of your current setup, analyzing for efficiency and function and offering lighting options that can lower your operating costs significantly.</p> <h4>On-Spec</h4> <p>Designed to your specifications, our experts can design?custom lighting solutions?that perform well and look great – all while keeping energy costs under control.</p> <h4>For Any Situation</h4> <p>Security, landscaping, parking, retail – you name it!
