things first. We to look at the numbers to make sure the
switch to LED lighting is the right move. We have never run
a LED light quote where it didn't result in significant
savings since the power usage and existing light replacement
costs are what they are...whether it's 1 light or 10,000
lights, incandescents or CFl's; spots or street lights.
There's no getting around the basic cost structure and
savings of 80-90% are typically the baseline. First, run
your LED light quote to get a better idea of what savings
you're looking at and what the initial cost of the light
bulbs will be both in terms of hardware (actual LED bulbs)
and labor for the installation. To be fair, you would be
paying for this labor many times over with your existing
bulbs since they burn out so much faster but it's important
to know the cost needed up front since the savings start
immediately but come on the back end. To run this quote,
you'll first need to complete your lighting inventory. You
can guestimate it but the more accurate your inventory, the
better LED light savings quote we can provide. You just
need the type of bulb, # of bulbs by type, and ideally the
wattage. We can do the rest with just that information. We
usually turn around quotes in a few business days directly
you receive your LED light quote, contact us with any
questions you may have. We're happy to walk through it. We
make sure all the supporting detail and assumptions are
there for easy reading but we're here to help. You will
likely see considerable savings and want to move forward.
Typically, people new to the LED world have two concerns.
First, what will the light look like and second, paying for
the LED lights up front. We can send out paid for samples
for any color (Bright white, daylight, and warm light being
the three most popular choices) to you so you can see it in
the actual space. This is important. Secondly, there are
options to finance the initial bulb purchase although most
people want to keep the full savings and choose to buy the
bulbs outright. There are financing options available so
please let us know if you are interested in this approach.
We will then send you the official purchase order to
initiate your project. Upon signed receipt, we'll likely
get your order started. You can generally expect the bulb
delivery after payment within 1-2 weeks depending on the
size of the order and the complexity. The bulbs will arrive
directly to your location. Next, comes installation.
arrange professional installation for you but the most cost
effective approach is to make the changes in-house for
larger companies that have dedicated HVAC/Facility support
or to use local electricians. For spots and general
lighting, we're essentially screwing in bulbs. No changes
are needed to existing fixtures. For changes to fluorescent
lighting, there are two approaches. We can either bypass
the ballasts (which draw energy themselves and also fail) or
go direct to the electric source with a quick retro-fit.
It's typically more economical and faster to just bypass the
ballasts and keep the existing fixtures. We can discuss
these options with you.
your lighting is installed, you will inevitably find
failures out of the box. the number of our LED lights that
fail are significantly lower than with existing
incandescents, CFL's, and fluorescents due to the Solid
State construction of an LED light. There are always going
to be failures with any lighting though so please package
these and return to us with the order detail enclosed.
We'll ship out replacements immediately. Of course, please
contact us with warranty issues or service needs going
forward. In the meantime, enjoy the savings that your new
light installation is generating.
