On their company website, Humphrey Management lists one of their company foundations as:
Innovation is vital to our competitive advantage. We are expected to generate and share new ideas that enable us to increase income, decrease expenses, compete better, and improve our services.
This philosophy aligns perfectly with the company’s recent lighting project with Bay Lighting. Together, Humphrey Management and Bay Lighting executed an energy saving lighting project that will save $17,819 annually, and $89,093 in 5 years time. When it comes to saving energy and ultimately money, converting to LED lighting has proven results and makes a big impact. Overland Gardens management was also able to take advantage of $10,605 in rebate savings. This amount was deducted instantly and all rebate administrative tasks were managed by Bay Lighting, saving our customer the headache of rebate paperwork and wait time.
The customer pre-selected a universal downlight fixture by MaxLite based on price and performance. An economical solution was important with this retrofit project. Key highlights of the MaxLite RCF61330W recessed downlighting include:
- Economical, all-in-one solution
- Direct mount into ceiling, no housing required
- No can, bulb, or extra labor is needed
- Suitable for damp locations
- 5-year limited warranty
In addition to the energy and financial savings, the staff at Overland Gardens also decreased maintenance time dedicated to employees changing lamps. The new fixture will last 50,000 hours which is about twice as long as the replaced product.
