Considerations when replacing commercial bulbs

The bulbs you choose for your commercial property can make a significant impact on both the practicality of the space, and the lighting itself, as well as the amount of money you spend on your electricity bills. But what are the important considerations when replacing commercial bulbs? And how can you achieve the right results for your commercial property?

What are the important considerations when replacing commercial bulbs?

If your company or business needs to replace bulbs or light fixtures in the new year, there are some important things to consider. These include:

  • The type of bulb
  • The light level and brightness
  • The light fixture positioning
  • The lighting control type

The type of bulb

Instead of simply swapping out like for like bulbs, why not consider making the switch to LEDs? These use less electricity, so you can save money on energy bills. And because they use less electricity, they also do not get as hot as regular bulbs, and this allows them to last a lot longer. In fact, this can be up to 30 times longer! This can also help your company or business save money.

The light level and brightness

Changing your bulbs is also a great opportunity to consider the level of light in the room, and the brightness level. Changing bulb wattage, as long as this is supported by the light fixture, can be an easy way to create a more comfortable light level which is particularly important in offices, and around desks, for optimum light comfort. This can improve productivity and health and wellbeing.

The light fixture positioning

The positioning of your light fixtures can have a big impact on the quality of the light, and the light level. This may be something you can consider adjusting, before switching your bulbs. Adjustable light fixtures are also a good idea, as these can be moved and positioned by the people using the light, for the best results.
