Finding the Right LED Lighting Partner for Your Business

Businesses that switch to LED lighting can save more than 60% on their energy and maintenance costs. This equals tens of thousands of dollars in savings per year for businesses. In addition to lower energy consumption, LED lighting lasts longer than traditional lighting fixtures. This reduces ongoing maintenance costs. All of these savings can have a serious impact on your budget when you need it most. 

LED Lighting Brings Big Benefits

In addition to the immediate cost savings on your first energy bill after an upgrade, LED lighting also:

  • Improves the safety of your workers

  • Enhances the experience of your customers 

  • Benefits the environment by reducing your carbon footprint

  • Installs easily with the right partner


Start Saving With No Additional Costs

You can start saving even faster when you choose a lighting-as-a-service (LaaS) provider. Switching over to LED lighting may seem like a big task, but a LaaS partner will help you maximize your savings with zero disruption to your existing business.

The LaaS partner covers all upfront costs for your upgrade – including design, manufacturing, and installations. Business owners enjoy instant cost savings and apply a portion of these savings to pay for their upgrade over time. There is zero upfront investment required to immediately switch to LED and start saving.

3 Quick Tips for Finding the Right LaaS Provider

As more businesses realize the immediate cost benefits of switching to LED, a number of small LaaS providers are popping up. However, not all partners are alike. As you begin to consider a switch to LED, keep these things in mind:

  • Experience matters

LED lighting is an emerging field. By making the switch now, you’re on the cutting edge of this incredible savings opportunity. Find a partner with a proven track record for successful installs and maintenance.

  • Make it personal

Look for a partner with experience in your industry or a similar application. Retail establishments require different lighting strategies than manufacturing facilities. The right partner will have a range of experience that matches your needs but also adds new ideas to the table from similar installations. 

  • Look for a long lasting relationship

The ideal LED partner will be ahead of the curve and will bring an understanding of the industry. Your ideal partner should view you as just that – a partner. Over time, they will keep you informed of the newest cost-savings and environmentally friendly options so you can maximize your savings.

How to Find the Right LED Partner

There are a few simple steps you can take to determine if LaaS is right for your business. Once you decide, it’s time to find the right partner.

1. Find a professional with experience.

Now that you know how many thousands of dollars you can save every month, starting immediately when you switch to LED, it’s time to find the right partner. Look for a professional with experience creating custom lighting solutions across multiple industries.

2. See what others have to say.

From creating a safer environment for employees and customers to driving significant cost savings, see what your partner’s previous clients have to say. These success stories give you valuable insights into your partner’s ability to work in a business like yours.

3. Minimize downtime.

Find a partner who can minimize your downtime, or eliminate it altogether. Construction projects, like lighting overhauls, can often seem overwhelming. The right LaaS provider will plan and manage your project from start to finish in order to minimize disruption to your business.

4. Keep the lights on, literally.

Service shouldn’t stop after the initial installation. The right LaaS partner keeps overall costs low for your business with a proactive maintenance schedule. LED lights last 50,000-100,000 hours, but maintenance still happens. A good LaaS partner will keep the lights on for you.

5. Look for a partner, not just a provider.

A LaaS partner values your time and money as if it was their own. A partner actively invests in your business by looking for ways to save you even more money. Every dollar matters, and Future Energy Solutions has helped thousands of businesses put more money in the bank through lighting upgrades.
