The bottom line is–effective energy management saves money. That’s why we take pride in working with multifamily property owners and managers, large and small, to take advantage of today’s most innovative LED Lighting.
Multifamily buildings are unique since common area lighting run 24/7 so converting to LED will have a bigger impact to your bottom line.
Lighting retrofit projects that reduce lighting load typically have a fast payback. While the LEDs KWH difference alone will achieve savings, you will also save by purchasing fewer bulbs. LEDs last up to 10 times longer. Given the growing cost of electricity, locking in a lifetime of dramatically lower energy bills is a worthwhile investment.The new LED fixtures not only significantly reduce utility bills, they also provide better, clearer lighting by day and night. This result in a safer, more comfortable experience for residents, maintenance replacement costs reduced for owners and management. Upgrading lighting in old or existing structures can be a challenge, but our teams are trained to rewire fixtures to perfection, eliminating previous wiring issues.
We’ve upgraded hundreds of NYC multifamily building’s lighting to LED fixtures, and we have a clear understanding of the multifamily space and the knowledge of the best replacement measures to use.
We present upgrades that will decrease your energy usage without decreasing your lighting levels.
