Some Creative Ways to Cut Operating Costs

In previous posts we’ve mentioned that LED bulbs are more efficient than incandescent bulbs, and that more efficiency leads to a reduction in energy costs. However, this is not the only way that landlords and property managers can reduce the amount of energy that they use and, consequently, the amount they must pay for their utilities.

Even though LED bulbs use only a fraction of the energy that incandescent bulbs expend, every second that they are on costs property owners money. While many tenants are responsible in their own apartments when it comes to turning off the lights in rooms that are not in use, the lighting in common areas is usually none of their concern. This is a good thing. You wouldn’t want them turning off the lights in the stairwell, for example, as it could lead to an injury.

However, if you were to install occupancy sensor controls in your buildings, this would allow you to keep the lights off when no one is using the area in question. It cuts down on electricity use, saves money, and doesn’t compromise the safety of your tenants.

On top of offering a wide selection of bulbs, fixtures, and other lighting components, Real Lighting also carries numerous varieties of sensors that can ensure that the lights are on only when they need to be on. @REALLIGHTING also ships the same day that you order and updates its inventory according to your order. This way, the items that you need are always in stock in the future. More than just saving you dollars with great products, Real Lighting will save you time and money with great service.
