  • Lack of productivity
  • Low employee morale and performance
  • Higher risk of accidents and injuries
  • Health problems for employees such as headaches, bad posture, and squinting

3 Signs Your Office Lighting Needs to be Repaired

Lighting fixtures add necessary illumination to your office but more than that, they’re also exciting accessories that can enhance the ambiance in your shop or other workspace. However, just like everything else, your lighting will require maintenance and repair to keep your space functional and safe.

Here are some of the biggest signs that your office lighting needs to be repaired:


1. Your Tech is Old

Technology in the lighting industry is advancing quickly and there are many new forms of lighting and energy technology that have been introduced, and many others which have become outdated. If your lighting system is particularly old, then it’s probably a good idea to consider something new and more energy efficient.

Replacing Your Fluorescent Lights With LEDs

Are you feeling unsatisfied with your existing commercial lighting? An LED retrofit allows you to upgrade your current system so you can enjoy a brighter, more energy efficient office space without having to replace any of your existing fixtures.

Some of the benefits of an LED retrofit include:

  • LEDs have a longer life span, so you get greater value for your money
  • You’ll use less electricity and save money in the long run
  • LEDs are unaffected by rapid cycling, so can be turned on and off frequently
  • Greater durability



2. The LIghting No Longer Suits Your Business

There are times when the same building finds itself in use for several different purposes at different times. If you have rented out an office space that once used to be a restaurant, then you may want to consider looking at your lighting.

Remember: What makes for good restaurant lighting may not be the same as what makes for good lighting in an office. It’s important that your workplace environment has the type of lighting that is best suited for what it is used for.


3. You Have Damaged Cords

Damaged cords can lead to electrical shock or even a fire if they aren’t handled or repaired quickly. Exposed wiring is NEVER safe and if sections of insulation are missing, or your wiring appears frayed then do not use your fixture until it is repaired by a lighting professional.

Bothered by an incessant buzzing noise? You may have a degrading ballast

Lightbulbs use a magnetic ballast to function and over time old or outdated ballasts can become noisy, often producing buzzing noises. This can be very distracting and irritating in the workplace.A lighting repair professional can let you know if the problem is due to the bulb or if it’s exacerbated by wiring.
