3 Reasons Why Quality Parking Lot Lighting is So Important 

As a business owner, you likely put a lot of thought and effort into maintaining your commercial building and keeping it up to par with customer expectations and industry standards. However, it’s important not to forget the extended space of your property, namely the parking lot. Good parking lot lighting will speak volumes about your business. 

Here are three reasons why quality parking lot lighting is so important: 

1. It’ll Help Prevent Accidents

The better pedestrians and drivers can see when they are in the parking area, the less likely it will be that an accident will occur, whether that’s tripping over something, or inadvertently hitting a pedestrian or another vehicle. 

Our lighting contractors can help lower the risk of accidents on your property

With the right type of illumination, people visiting your business property will be able to see clearly enough to avoid situations for which you might be held liable. 

2. Your Security Will Improve 

A dimly lit parking area reflects poorly on your place of business because not only will customers view it as poor maintenance, but they’ll also feel less secure in your parking area. 

While lighting alone will not get rid of crime in your parking lot, high quality lighting placed in the right locations can lower the risk of criminals stealing vehicles or breaking into them. 

3. Good Lighting Reflects Well On Your Business

Installing high quality LED lighting is a great way to advertise your business. Just like the interior, the exterior of your business premises reflects your company and its values. Good lighting makes your clients, employees, and business associates see your company as a warm and welcoming place.  

5 Things to Remember About Outdoor Lighting 

Are you considering upgrading the lighting in your parking lot? Here are some things you must remember before doing so: 

  1. LED parking lot lighting can reduce your lighting maintenance costs, lower energy costs, and improve your safety and security. 
  2. When replacing your fluorescent lights with LED lights, don’t only focus on under-lit areas. You also want to look at areas that are over illuminated, so as to reduce glare and energy output. 
  3. LEDs produce better quality light than conventional light sources. This means less fixtures may be needed in your parking lot to keep it well lit. Always talk to a lighting contractor, as he/she can help you determine the amount of light you need. 
  4. If you want to lower your energy consumption, consider pairing your LEDs with lighting controls, such as motion sensors. 
  5. Commercial security is a complex matter. Consider installing surveillance cameras, as well as alarms, to make your space safer at night.

“​Hey Nigel, just thought I would let you know our electricity averaged around $630/month before the upgrade, compared with the September bill that we just got of only $370 – much better savings than we thought. The condo board members are extremely pleased!”​
