upgrade your lighting fixtures

If you’re a business owner who wants to save energy and save money on your company’s energy bills, you can upgrade your lighting fixtures with higher-efficiency ballasts and lamps. Compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), tubular fluorescent (T5 and T8), light-emitting diodes (LEDs), and halogen incandescent lights are four of the most common kinds of energy-efficient lighting. Switching to energy-efficient lighting is top among a business owner’s effective energy-efficiency investments.


It’s worth making the upgrade. Energy-efficient lighting increases the life of your lighting equipment, so your lamps last longer. Energy-efficient lamps also provide better light color and quality than fluorescent lights, which adds to the visual attractiveness of your building. What’s more, using energy-efficient lighting shows your customers that your business is energy-conscious and concerned about its impact on the natural environment. Look for ENERGY STAR-qualified lighting and select the kind that provides you with the highest quality light for the application at hand.
