Short Days

The winter brings shorter days. This means time clocks for exterior lights need to have their times altered to stay on longer.

Give us a call if you have and building we need to check this for you.

Are your Tenants In the Dark?

I know what you are thinking, but that is not what I meant. I’m talking about the exterior lighting at your buildings. During the winter the nights are longer and the pole lights and wall packs get more usage. When the exterior lighting is working properly your tenants feel safer and decrease the chances of an after hours call about the lights not being on in the parking lot.

One of the most common problems is lamps cycling on and off after they have warmed up. This usually indicates that the lamp is at the end of it’s life span. If not replaced this cycling can burn out the ballast prematurely. We can check buildings with time clocks, override switches or one photocell during normal business hours. Buildings that have individual photocells on all fixtures are quicker to check after hours. If you schedule ahead of time we will check these building after hours at our normal rates. Then we can do all the repairs during the day. It usually takes 30 to 45 minutes to check and map out any problems at a building.

If you would like to schedule us to check any of your buildings let us know.
