If you are someone who owns or manages a building with a parking lot, you know that keeping it safe and in tip-top shape is extremely important. One of the largest elements of your parking lot is the lighting. What type of lighting is currently installed? Is it bright enough? How much is it costing to run? TriStar Electric can evaluate your parking lot lighting to see how your property can benefit from an upgrade to LED lighting!
Add Curb Appeal
LED lights add to the visual appeal of your parking lot and by extension your business. Before customers even set foot inside your establishment, they see the brightly lit exterior and know that you’re invested in the appearance of the property. It also looks far more professional when customers and employees pull in and see a brightly lit space rather than a parking lot filled with loudly buzzing and flickering lights that only provide a negligible amount of illumination.
Because LED lighting is so much brighter, it also makes your parking lot safer. The increased brightness acts as a deterrent for thieves and miscreants because there are fewer places to hide and a much better chance of being seen. A brighter parking lot can also decrease the risk of accidents. It’s much easier for pedestrians and drivers to see each other and see where they’re going as well, decreasing the likelihood of physical and vehicle-related accidents.
Believe it or not, LED lighting is also far more cost-effective. Even though some brands may look more expensive to install, it is important to look at the bigger picture: most notably the fact that LED bulbs last quite a bit longer than any other type of bulb currently on the market, and use far less energy. So even if it costs a bit more to install, your LED lighting will pay for itself several times over in a very short time.
