First impressions are a big deal. And having a fully functional parking lot makes an excellent first impression on your business.
So, if your business opens up very early in the morning and stays up late at night, keeping a well-lit parking space is essential to make customers feel safe and to avoid accidents in the parking lot.
The only issue is achieving a well-lit parking lot equals a lot of energy lost, especially if you’re using High-Intensity Discharge Fixtures recommended for parking lot lighting.
However, there has been a shift regarding parking lot lighting in recent years. That is the use of LED lighting.
There are several benefits of LED lighting you should exploit, such as:
- They are energy efficient – you’ll spend a higher upfront cost during their installation, but they will save you money by lowering your power bills.
- They offer a much better uniform illumination – HID fixtures have a low light illumination. In contrast, LEDs offer uniform, brighter illumination without shadows, or dark spots, thanks to their multi-point design.
- Better illumination control – With LED, you can direct your light in any direction. For example, you can make them light up your parking space only, not lighting the sky or your neighbor’s residence. A quality that also allows you not to waste your lighting.
- Life longevity – LED lights last longer than most traditional lights. Plus, they require minimal maintenance. These qualities also add to their cost-effectiveness since you won’t have to switch the lights for a long time.
