Edmonton Lighting Upgrades

Office Lighting

If you’ve ever suffered through an eight-hour workday under the flickering light of a too-bright fluorescent tube, you know how important office lighting is. Productivity is proven to suffer, and workers may experience health issues, including migraines, eye strain, and fatigue.

Some studies suggest that cooler lighting in offices is best. You’ll also want lighting that interacts well with your natural light but offers enough of its own luminescence for evenings (or winter days that are short on natural light).

Automatic Lighting & Lighting Controls

Advanced lighting controls can benefit your business in a few ways. First, they can save you money on utilities, especially if you include features like remote control and auto on-off lights. Second, they can offer added convenience, such as scheduling so your employees aren’t constantly adjusting the lights throughout the day. And finally, they can add a bit of extra luxury or a different experience for customers. For example, some grocery stores have incorporated lighting for aisles that switches on as a customer walks down it, providing a unique and luxury feel for something as mundane as grocery shopping.

Outdoor Entry & Sign Lighting 

A lot of the electrical work that Polar Electric Contracting does for businesses is performed outside their locations. We have a lot of dark hours in Edmonton throughout the winter season, which means businesses need to attract attention with lighting.

Outdoor lighting systems can help showcase the business and building so people take notice (even if it’s outside normal business hours). We also provide lighting packages for backlit outdoor signs that advertise the business boldly, even at nighttime.

Ultimately, outdoor lighting leads to more people coming through your doors and, therefore, more profitability. Another benefit of well-designed and installed outdoor lighting is increased security, which is included as a separate point below.

Emergency & Security Lighting 

It won’t necessarily improve your profitability, but emergency and security lighting can reduce unnecessary expenses due to accidents and crime. Although it’s no substitute for a solid security system, lighting can actually help in preventing crime, especially crimes committed at night when your office, warehouse, or shop is closed down.

A well-lit building is not a good target for criminals who want to avoid being seen or caught on camera. Automatic and motion-sensor lighting can turn a spotlight on would-be criminals, chasing them away before they can break in. Your lighting will also aid your alarm and security system by ensuring all areas covered by cameras can be seen clearly.

Another important aspect of any commercial space is emergency lighting. In addition to features like lit exit signs, back-up lights can keep your space safe and functioning during power outages. Typically, these types of lighting systems are governed by specific lighting codes, so be sure to hire a professional electrician in Edmonton to help you get up to code (or stay that way!)
