3 Key Points for an Exterior Commercial Lighting Service
August 11, 2017
For every commercial property hiring an exterior commercial lighting service to maintain interior and exterior lighting can be a challenge. Developing a lighting maintenance plan is a key part of keeping your lights working and your environment safe for patrons. Below we will look at some tangible strategies and tactics to hiring an exterior commercial lighting service to keep your facilities operating at peak performance.
Hire A National Exterior Commercial Lighting Service Company
For large parking lots and multi-unit facilities with outdoor fixtures, lighting outages are a constant concern. The burden of maintenance typically falls on the facilities director or the property management firm. However, it’s not uncommon for outages to go unnoticed, which leads to an unsafe environment for customers and patrons.
One way to mitigate this potential risk is by hiring a national exterior commercial lighting service company who implements a monthly or quarterly maintenance plan. In this scenario, technicians would implement planned schedule maintenance visits to ensure that lighting is functional and operational. Additionally, these an exterior commercial lighting service provider should be able to not only check lamps and ballast but underlying electrical problems as well.
Understanding Your Site Lighting Assets
Exterior commercial lighting service organizations should be diligent about capturing the lighting component data at their customers’ facilities. Namely, knowing the lighting and ballasts that are installed, and understanding things like pole heights. This ensures the correct bulbs and ballasts are in the technician’s truck before they get to the facility, and also they have the right size bucket truck to service the lights. While basic, capturing this data minimizes downtime for the customer lighting outages, reduces inconsistencies with a product at the facility, and reduces trip charge costs.
Finally, you want to find an exterior commercial lighting service partner that has your best interests at heart. Many maintenance organizations will come to the site, service the fixture in disrepair, and leave after completing the job. While this fulfills the contractual obligation of the exterior commercial lighting service provider, it doesn’t necessarily better the client’s lighting situation.
Specifically, at Action Services Group we work to not just repair and replace your existing lighting. We incorporate the bigger picture to see if we could decrease your costs and improve lighting efficiencies by installing LED replacement lighting.
