Lighting Up Chicago Night Life

Many business owners already know that good quality exterior lighting is key to creating an inviting environment and can go a long way in both making and saving money. People associate well-lit exterior and commercial spaces such as parking lots and walkways with safety, which means they are more likely to frequent your business. On the flip side, the operating and maintenance costs of exterior lighting can easily run up your bills and eat into any profit you would have made from attracting customers in the first place. At Verde we specialize in installing cost-efficient lighting in order to save you money on operating costs, while helping you retain or even improve the exterior ambiance of your business. We know that each of our clients’ needs are unique, which is why our end-to-end service is entirely tailored to your outdoor lighting Chicago needs.

Our assessment reports not only include estimates of your current energy expenditure, but also options for fixture upgrades as well as projected savings.

2. Get More Facts – LED Exterior Lighting Opportunities

Exterior lighting options have come a long way in the last decade especially with the incorporation of LED technology. Exterior LED lights definitely have the edge on traditional high intensity discharge lightbulbs. Not only are they far more energy efficient, consuming only 20-30% of the wattage of traditional solutions, but they also boast longevity lasting between 50,000-100,000 hours – nearly five times that of traditional bulbs.   Bonus – a longer life also means reduced maintenance costs! With all these savings, you to take advantage of LED’s brightness without impacting your bottom line. You can achieve a brighter and crisper light, most similar to daylight, by using LED lighting in a higher kelvin color temperature. This level of brightness can make a business feel more inviting and approachable and is even noticeable as you drive down the street. Finally, LED is still a practical solution if you have already upgraded certain components of your lighting facilities. In fact, due to their efficient responsiveness, LED lights pair ideally with photocells, and occupancy or vacancy sensors.
