Perhaps the most important thing we do at Graybar is the implementation of “smart” buildings. These buildings are far more than just a trend, they are investments in the future. At the heart of our intelligent facilities solutions is an infrastructure of networked lighting, communications, HVAC and security systems operating in unison from a centralized control system. With our help, you can control, monitor, report on, and ultimately reduce the cost of operating your buildings. On average, our customers see a return on investment for an intelligent building project between 17 and 45 percent in as little as two years. These upgrades have also been shown to improve productivity and safety.
Retrofitting all of your existing buildings is highly recommended and can decrease your energy consumption by as much as 67 percent. An example of a retrofit would be replacing old lighting fixtures with newer, more efficient counterparts. Many of our electrical supplies will install directly into the existing housings, eliminating the need for time-consuming re-wiring and ceiling repair. These types of retrofits can pay for themselves in as little as two years, and often yield a return on investment of more than 40 percent.
By coupling technologies like LED bulbs and intelligent control systems, your business could see energy savings in excess of 90 percent. Using area and occupant based sensors that detect motion and sound, lighting can be turned off automatically when not in use. Dimmer switches are incredibly useful when full lighting may not be needed, such as in conference rooms.
