Partnering With HOAs – From Property Managers To Boards
- What is your main reason and what are your secondary reasons for installing new lighting?
- What lighting do you currently have installed? The type of technology (ex. Fluorescent) is important, too.
- Are all lights working? Is electricity to those lights operating?
- What is your budget?
- When would you like to begin this project?
- Pictures of the area and existing fixtures are also helpful in some situations.
Information is especially important when working with a board that meets monthly. Plan ahead and have your community’s information ready to begin conversations with a lighting specialist.

Pillars of a Success – Condominium Lighting
Pillar 1: Optimal Lighting
Apartment complexes may have numerous common areas, both interior and exterior. Attention to lighting details is required in all situations. Optimal lighting can make paint colors vibrant, create a soothing welcome upon entering, and brighten intimidating basement storage areas. Lighting carries a lot of responsibility
Pillar 2: Energy Efficiency
Upgrading your existing apartment lights to LED fixtures is a great way to reduce energy costs. It is estimated that by 2035, LED lighting will have saved around $890 billion in avoided energy costs. They last longer, provide high-quality illumination, and do not use heat or mercury, making them a safer choice. Sensors and dimmers can be used to ensure that lights are being used, and at the right level, when necessary, which is especially convenient for areas like stairwells.
Pillar 3: Reduced Operations Costs
Long-lasting LED eliminates the amount of lamp changes needed. Lifts and special equipment can also be minimized which is another huge savings that’s avoided.
Life safety products are important at multi-family properties to keep visitors and guests safe. In common areas, emergency lights and exit signs should be tested and maintained. LED opportunities are also available with these products for extra energy savings.
Smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors are often the responsibility of each unit’s owner and are purchased accordingly. At times, management may initiate purchasing a bulk purchase for all units. With 10-year alarms lasting for so long, it’s reassuring for neighbors in close proximity to know all units are utilizing best practices for multi-family life safety.
