Interior Lighting Maintenance – Relamps

Why should you consider a Lighting Maintenance Program? Group Relamping, regularly scheduled inspections, cleaning, and recycling by a trained and competent lighting maintenance company can save you time and money, as well as allow you to budget a fixed amount of expense which also maximizes the efficiency of your lighting system.

Customized Lighting Maintenance Programs are designed to meet your needs and your budgeted dollars.

The most expensive portion of the cost related to a lighting system is the electric consumption. The second largest contributor is the labor to install the lamp while the smallest portion is the actual cost of the lamp. If your maintenance department is changing one lamp or fixture at a time, at the hourly or salary rate, it is far more economical to implement a cost saving group relamp, or regularly scheduled Lighting Maintenance Program.

According to industry standards, a spot relamp takes approximately 20 minutes to change 4 foot lamp compared to 5 minutes for a group relamp per fixture. If you pay your maintenance person $14.00 an hour, that would translate into $4.66 per lamp for spot relamping. TCL Electrical & Lighting Maintenance Programs are designed to reduce maintenance costs while maintaining the design lumens in the fixture. Each time we service a fixture or group relamp an entire facility, we make all necessary repairs to the fixture as well as clean the fixture lens, which can increase light output by up to 25%.

As lamps get older they loose light output, however, you are still paying for the full wattage of the lamp. There is also a lamp inventory that must be maintained as well as the expense of receiving, packing, and recycling failed lamps. Manufacturer’s warranties must be monitored. All of the above costs erode your bottom line profits and increase lighting maintenance expenses.

Customized Lighting Maintenance Programs are designed to meet your needs and your budgeted dollars. TCL Electrical & Lighting can control and reduce your lighting maintenance issues and in addition will enable your Maintenance Department to focus on other non-lighting issues.

Energy Efficient Lighting Upgrades and Retrofits

TCL Electrical & Lighting assists commercial, industrial, institutional, hospitality and retail clients in their efforts to save energy and reduce operating costs, while maintaining and improving the aesthetics of their environment. This is accomplished by designing and installing energy efficient alternatives to existing inefficient lighting equipment.

Considering today’s national energy crisis, it is imperative to reduce operating costs as well as conserve energy while protecting our environment.

Environmental Recycling Of Lamps & PCB Ballasts

Nationally, about 600 million lamps are disposed of annually, each containing 12 – 50 milligrams of mercury, with some high intensity discharge lamps containing as much as 250 milligrams of mercury. These lamps and PCB ballasts must be properly recycled. During the handling of these lamps many break, releasing mercury vapor to the handler and the environment. Solid waste incineration or landfill of mercury containing lamps releases the mercury back into the environment. Some lamps may also contain lead in the glass and lead solder.
