Do you own or manage a building or other large property? Do you currently manage an HOA and need to hire a new electrical contractor? Do you feel like your electrician doesn’t treat you the same way they used to, but charge you more than ever before?

With SFM Construction & Painting Co., we try to provide a more proactive service and maintenance program that addresses potential electrical issues before they arise.

A lighting audit is an investigative process that measures conditions against standards to determine where cost-effective changes can be made. Below is a brief description of the steps to be followed when conducting an energy audit for lighting.
The first step is a walk-through of the property to observe the quantity and quality of available light. Problems are noted such as an area where lighting levels are too high, where lights are left on unnecessarily, or where factors leading to visual discomfort may inhibit productivity or safety. The type, quantity, location and height of lamps and fixtures are recorded. Next, simple retrofit possibilities, such as switching from general lighting to task lighting are considered. For example, by simply lowering the fixture height, a lighting system can be changed from general to task-oriented with a desirable increase in contrast between the task area and the general workplace. Also, painting equipment slightly lighter than the surrounding area adds contrast and aids workers in discerning moving parts, thereby increasing safety. Possible areas for these improvements are noted during the audit.
