If you are thinking about upgrading the lighting at your property, there are several factors to consider. Here are some common facts about organizations that upgrade their lighting. They…
- Know the costs of lighting the facility
- Reduce the usage of energy usage at their facility
- Enhance the value of their building
- Are more likely to qualify for utility company incentives
- Reduce costs of operations
- Increase the light quality of the facility
- Establish a more environmentally conscious operation
When a light or lights are not working efficiently, it is pretty easy to tell. If the light flickers or if the color of light being put out varies, then there is a high likelihood that the light should be replaced or repaired.
CLE can help your organization save up to 60% on your facility’s energy bills. The proper lighting retrofit may also qualify your business for other government tax deductions and utility company rebates as well.

LED lighting is more efficient than incandescent or halogen lighting by approximately 85%, partly because approximately 80-90% of energy emitted from those bulbs gets converted to heat instead of light. Because of this, LED lights do not require nearly as much energy to produce the same amount of light. By design, LED lights will also last about 50x longer than incandescent or halogen lighting.
Most fluorescent lights and compact fluorescent lights (CFLs) contain mercury among other hazardous materials. As such, these lighting products must be disposed of carefully and properly, so that they do not contaminate landfills or cause danger to anyone. Fluorescent lights are also subject to flickering, and some people can be very sensitive to this, and even experience strained eyes, headaches, and even migraines. On the other hand, LED lights utilize solid-state technology, which enables stable dimming without flickering. Additionally, fluorescent lights can take a significant amount of time to reach their full brightness levels, especially when it is cold. LED lights, on the other hand, turn on instantly in any environment and temperature.
Yes, CLE does warranty our labor and materials. Materials come with manufacture warranties. Some manufactures offer a warranty up to 10 years, but most are at least backed by a 5 year limited warranty. CLE also warranties our craftsmanship. Normal labor warranties are backed by 1 year, however we believe all issues deserve a full inspection as to why the situation happened and if in any way the issue was installation related, it is likely CLE will back that for over a year. You are in good hands with us, it is our reputation on the line and that cannot be compromised!
