Lighting for Multi-Family Housing

Energy efficient lighting practices produce a better outcome for you and your tenants

When used correctly, lighting can be a powerful asset used to attract customers. Lighting can impact your occupant’s safety, finances, health, and overall mood. When thinking about your apartment complex, senior living facility, or college dormitory have similar questions come to mind?
  • Are all areas of my complex properly illuminated? When a tenant uses the stairs, for example, are the stairwells dim and intimidating, or bright and calming?
  • What’s the most impactful way to decrease my bottom line quickly and with minimal expense?
  • Was color temperature taken into consideration throughout the building? Are the lights in the fitness room the same brightness as those in the lobby?
  • When I walk into the main entrance is the lighting inviting? Does it make an impact? Do I notice it at all?

What Our Clients Are Saying

We used to have to change the fluorescent bulbs weekly which required getting out the lift, in addition to coordinating times with security so we didn’t set off any alarms. Since converting to LED, we haven’t had to replace any LED lamps which helps save on manpower and pays for itself.
Rob, Smithsonian Institution
What we appreciated most, besides your excellent service and prices, was the ease of installation and the quick return on investment due to the PEPCO rebate. We also love the brightness and light consistency in our garage now. Also since LEDs are not affected by temperature like fluorescent we will have a much brighter garage in the winter months. We estimate payback in 1 ½ months.
Alex, JBG Smith
Last year our hotel in Annapolis participated the BGE Instant Lighting Discount Program. It was as simple as purchasing $1 LED bulbs and observing the benefits. The LED A lamps were noticed right away by our customers, offering instant and superior illumination. With the task of changing light bulbs eliminated, our staff now has time to perform other needed tasks. The energy savings has been off the charts and our investment paid for itself in less than a few months. I would highly recommend this to any facility.

A well lit parking lot is critical to business. When we have outages, we need immediate resolution. Bay Lighting’s quick turnaround and skilled staff keep our exterior lighting in top condition. We have the brightest lot at the airport.

Apartment unit turns, or apartment turnover, is the process that happens from the time one tenant moves out until the next tenant moves in. This is an easy, budget-friendly time to consider renovations since there aren’t currently tenants in the unit, and it can make the apartment more appealing to future tenants.
