  • Commercial lighting serves to illuminate your property to facilitate and accommodate vital business operations, from sales to manufacturing. Different colors, intensities, and designs are available to customize solutions that enhance your business. A ballast is often required in commercial settings, and it is matched directly to the light bulb it operates. A light bulb needs a ballast that is uniquely tailored to its specific needs. For commercial properties, heavy-duty ballasts are often required as the lighting’s power demand is more significant.

    In the last 15 years, the use of fluorescent lighting has declined as it has been replaced with the use of LED lighting. LED lighting is more versatile with several applications that offer more energy-efficient usage, resulting in lower energy bills.

  • Fluorescent lights are a common lighting type for commercial properties as they are affordable and can be easily replaced. They also offer minimal maintenance because bulbs just need to be swapped out when they are no longer offering the same performance. If you notice a fixture has multiple bulbs that are flickering, or if the problem persists once you change the bulb, it may indicate the need for fluorescent light ballast replacement. Fluorescent ballast replacement involves removing the lights from their casing, then removing the entire fixture cover. We then cut the wiring to take out the malfunctioning ballast to replace it with a functioning ballast and reconnect new wiring. This also includes replacing the bulbs.

  • There is an array of reasons why you may need to replace your current commercial lighting. Here are some of the most common issues that indicate your light fixtures are due to be upgraded:

    • Dimming or flickering of lights
    • The lights do not turn on or off as they should
    • Frequent light bulb changes
    • Cracked or burnt lights
    • Light bulb explosions
    • Lighting discoloration
    • Insufficient illumination
    • Lights do not meet your preferences (softer, brighter, cooler)
    • You want lights that offer extended longevity for convenience and cost-savings
    • You want to minimize energy consumption
  • The performance of your lighting depends on your light bulb choice. Therefore, it’s essential to choose efficient lighting that satisfies the needs of your commercial space. Working with energy efficient lighting can minimize your energy usage and offer lower electrical bills. However, it’s important to note that proper installation and light fixture selection play into the performance of your lighting. If the lights are installed correctly, lighting improvements can pay off in savings within a few years.

Choosing the Best Light Bulbs for Your Commercial Property

There are many lighting types that suit various types of commercial properties, including incandescent, halogen, fluorescent, LED, and more. Some of your light bulb options include:

  • Incandescent: These are an older type of bulb used primarily indoors for tasks that demand brighter lighting. They do not offer optimal energy-efficiency.
  • Halogen: These bulbs are twice as efficient as incandescent bulbs and offer a bright, white light. They are mostly used in outdoor settings for security purposes or in stadiums.
  • Flood Lights: Flood lights are used for outdoor lighting, giving off high-intensity discharge that enables them to illuminate large areas.
  • Fluorescent: These bulbs are the most popular indoor commercial lighting solution, with compact bulbs that demand 1/5-1/3 as much electricity as incandescent bulbs. Additionally, they have a lifespan 10 times longer with a similar lumen rating.
  • Compact Fluorescent: Also referred to as a CFL, this type of lighting is a smaller version of traditional fluorescent lighting used indoors in commercial properties. They have a swirled design and are effective for smaller areas.
  • Projector Bulbs: These bulbs are used indoors for projection equipment, which make them ideal for office settings or areas where presentations take place.
  • Neon Lights: Neon bulbs are more costly than other lighting alternatives but can be customized into lettering, logos, or shapes. They can be used indoors or outdoors as an eye-catching signage option.
  • HID Lighting: Used indoors and outdoors, High-Intensity Discharge bulbs offer longevity while producing bright light that extends over larger areas. They are mostly used in warehouses or industrial settings. They are not as effective or as energy efficient as LED as they lose up to 30% of their rated output while demanding the same level of power through a ballast.
  • LED Lighting: The light emitting diodes in LED lighting are energy-efficient and long-lasting, exceeding any other form of lighting. They demand 75% less energy and last 35-50 times longer than an incandescent light and can be used indoors or outdoors. Call for more information about our LED ballast replacement.
  • Security Lighting: This type of lighting can be used indoors and outdoors for added safety. They function by motion sensors allowing the light to turn on when motion is detected.
