LED lighting in parking garages : quick & easy improvements and paybacks!

Property owners and managers need to constantly look for ways to improve their premises to enhance their building to attract and keep their clients. For all improvement projects, the owner must weigh the capital costs versus the benefits: in most cases, the ROI is medium-to-long term and benefits are often just aesthetic or marginal. That is why the results by changing inefficient lighting to new solutions, such as LED fixtures or lightbulbs, is so attractive! The return is usually within a year or two, based solely on savings from the much lower energy bills, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg: factor in the nearly zero maintenance costs over the long life of the LED lamps or fixtures (usually 5+ years), plus the often very generous utility company’s or government’s rebate programs, and these typical returns are in months, not years! Then add the benefits of better light and visibility for added safety and comfort, and you’ve got yourself a WIN-WIN proposition that you can’t overlook.

Mercor has a large array of solutions for LED retrofitting or lamp replacement projects for all your property needs, but parking garages (often lit 24 hours a day) are a particularly good target for building enhancements and quick savings that are both easy to achieve and improve the premise’s environment. The resulting savings are easily quantifiable, and often can help finance further relamping or retrofitting projects in other parts of the building to further increase the economic impact of these upgrades.

The net effect for the owner is a high quality, safer and more comfortable environment that supports revenue and income streams – while significantly reducing recurring maintenance and overhead costs – geared to achieve a Class A and environmentally-friendly space.

In lighting, pictures are worth a thousand words: the old HID lighting system (bottom floor) is yellow and inefficient, while the new LED lighting on the upper floor of the parking garage provides brighter, whiter light AND uses 65% less power!
