Site Audits: Go Beyond 1 for 1 Replacements

Sep 20, 2021, 00:02 AM by Devon Wahl of Acuity Brands

By now, we all know the energy savings that LED lighting solutions can offer. But have you considered that lighting impacts so much more than just energy bills? If you are considering a lighting retrofit, make sure you’re looking at the whole picture.  

Once you have decided you’re interested in upgrading the lighting in your space, the first step should be a full site audit. Site audits offer so much more than just counting existing fixtures for replacement.  

What are the environmental factors in the space? Is there dirt? Dust? High ambient temperatures?  What is the production layout? What are the current light levels? Is the environment safe for those working in the space? 

Based on the evaluation and answers to these questions, Holophane uniquely designs the lighting to meet your exact needs. Whether it’s decreased maintenance, energy savings, increased security or more adequate light levels you’re after – Holophane will focus their solution based on what’s most important to you.  

Site audits also ensure their proposed solution maximizes lifespan of the fixtures while minimizing fixture failures. Often, they can even recommend your ideal lighting design using less fixtures overall! Furthermore, they can help you increase the benefits of your new lighting through recommending lighting controls like nLight® AIR wireless. 

At the end of the day, it is about finding the solution that best meets your needs in your specific space. Holophane offers superior products to meet the need of demanding environments, like the Petrolux LED family, for over 77 years. You can expect the visual comfort, superior uniformity and a lower overall total cost of ownership that Holophane is known for when you reach out for a site audit of your space.
