Key Highlights

Efficient Lighting EL-159

Exterior Wall Mount
Powder Coated White or Black

Wet Listed

Fixture EL-159 was used on balconies and common areas throughout the property.

Outdoor living is essential on the list of amenities at Hunters Glen Apartments with highlights including an outdoor courtyard, pool and sundeck, and pet friendly areas. Shopping is within walking distance, another attraction to tenants.

The Opportunity

Breezeway fixtures were old, in disrepair, and did not fit with the aesthetic the property was looking for during a large-scale renovation. They were also too dark during the day due to poor light output and existing fixtures being on photocells and turning off during the day. Many tenants often walk so it was important to have proper illumination for safety so property management company Bozutto was ready to update lighting.

The Solution

Bay Lighting provided new updated and decorative outdoor rated fixtures that matched new aesthetic for the renovated property. Fixtures were low profile to prevent breakage during move-ins and move-outs as well as regular breezeway traffic.

The Benefits

Bypassed photocells and high-output lamps helped increase light output at all times of the day. In this instance improved lighting and output was the goal, but still provided a 2.52 year payback and over $4,500 in yearly energy and maintenance savings.
Hunters Glen wanted to maintain consistency between the common area breezeways and unit balcony lights throughout the property. The same fixtures were installed for both applications with LED lamps also installed on balconies to help achieve this goal, in addition to reducing in-unit maintenance for these areas.

    It’s estimated that schools spend billions of dollars annually on energy, and it’s often the second-highest operating expenditure (following personnel costs). Each year, these expenses continue to increase while budgets often decrease, leading educators to look for ways to save money throughout the year. One way is by making some lighting updates that are more energy efficient, therefore saving money on energy bills. LED uses up to 75% less energy than conventional lighting systems, which keeps dollars in your budget for other important things.

    For tenants looking for the greatest variety of apartment homes to choose from, moving between May and September is often their best bet. Parents and college students are timing moves for when school is out for the summer, so more multi-family units become available for renters. Warmer weather also eliminates moving challenges like winter storms or icy roads.
