Did you know that poor office lighting can decrease employee productivity? In a typical business expenditure breakdown, labor accounts for as much as 85 percent of operating costs, while lighting only accounts for one percent. As a result, your business could be decreasing its operational efficiency—and ultimately affecting your bottom line—without proper office lighting. It’s important to consider the:

  • Color of office lights – The color, or “temperature” of your office lights account for the most dramatic effect on employee tasks. Brighter light, also known as “white light,” is known to increase employee productivity and cause employees to feel more energized and less stressed than yellow, or “warm” light.
  • Brightness of office lights – Like the color, the brightness of office lighting is also known to negatively affect employee performance. A poorly lit office causes cortisol levels in employees to drop significantly, causing employees to feel fatigued.
  • Quantity of office lights – Nobody likes sleepy employees—but this doesn’t mean you should load your office with more lights. An office that is too bright can also cause employees to feel lethargic and fatigued.
  • Placement of office lights – Studies show that natural lighting maximizes employee efficiency. But what if natural light is not an option? The area around desks and personal workspaces should be brighter than their surroundings to create contrast and increase focus.

Who doesn’t want happier, more productive employees? If you’re looking to replace your current office lighting system, or need electrical repairs, contact the certified electricians at Penna Electric. We’ll perform a comprehensive analysis of your existing office lights and work with you to recommend the best lighting fixtures, bulbs, and placement for your business. We also offer a 24-hour emergency services—so you can rest assured we’ll get your office back on line as quickly as possible.

Occupancy Sensor Installations

Many facilities have areas that are lighted even when unoccupied, resulting in wasted energy. One of Penna Electric’s energy-efficient lighting solutions is to install occupancy sensors.

Occupancy sensors are switching devices that serve three basic functions: automatically turn lights on when a room becomes occupied, keep the lights on without interruption while the controlled space is occupied and turn the lights off within a preset time-period after the space has been vacated.

Occupancy sensors consist of a motion detector, an electronic control unit, a controllable switch (relay) and a power supply. The motion detector uses ultrasonic, passive infrared or dual technology sensors to detect the presence or absence of occupants in the space and sends that back to the control unit. The control unit then automatically adjusts the lighting dependent on the presence or absence of occupants.

Areas with intermittent occupancy such as conference rooms or restrooms are well-suited to occupancy sensors. Use of occupancy sensors can result in lighting energy cost savings of 13-90 percent if they are calibrated, wired correctly and placed correctly.

Wall pack lighting is the most common form of outdoor lighting fixture used for commercial and industrial facilities. Wall packs are mounted on outdoor walls of most commercial and public buildings throughout Los Angeles, the South Bay and parts of Orange County. They produce powerful, high-intensity light over a broad outdoor area. Currently, many businesses are installing newer wall pack models that produce less light pollution while still providing safety and security lighting in even the most harsh weather conditions. Penna Electric can service and replace wall packs when they need maintenance or you want to upgrade to a more energy efficient model.
