Utilizing electrical supplies and products that are designed work together, we can create “intelligent” facilities that will save money and be more friendly to the environment. With more than 30 percent of energy used in commercial buildings wasted, a “smart” building is far more than a trend. It is an essential investment in the future. At the heart of these buildings is an infrastructure of lighting, communications, HVAC, and security systems operating from a single control system. Graybar can help you upgrade existing buildings and plan new ones to be more energy efficient from the start.
Lighting retrofits are a simple, yet effective way to make an existing building more energy efficient. More than 25 percent of energy used in most facilities is used by lighting, and increased efficiency will make a big impact on the monthly energy bill. Most electrical supplies will swap out directly with existing hardware and can use the old fixture housings to save time and ceiling repair costs.
When designing of a new building project, you can make use of several methods to ensure a more energy efficient structure from the very start. Effective daylighting uses natural light to offset electrical loads, and when implemented properly can drastically reduce operating costs. Using occupancy sensors and dimmers, centralized control systems can further reduce the waste of lighting empty rooms.
If you need an end-to-end lighting solution, kitting for a larger project, or even a half-mile of raw conduit, Graybar Madison can deliver when and where you need it.
