Smart Lighting Decisions for Hotels

Cutting down on inefficient lighting fixtures in your hotel, resort or inn can save the business considerable sums of money. Making some big changes in how you use energy to light the place could make a real difference the next time your energy bill comes around. Here are some tips for how best to use energy for lighting in a hotel.

Make the Switch to LED Wherever Possible

LEDs are far more energy efficient than every other form of lighting. There's no doubt about it! If you want to make a building more energy efficient, you're going to need to invest in LED lighting products.

Many popular lighting features in hotels can be switched over to LED lighting products. Everything from reading lights in hotel rooms to chandeliers in dining rooms could be powered by LED lighting rather than more traditional power sources.

The benefits to energy saving are widely known; LED globes offer more light in relation to the energy that they use than older kinds of lighting, and they also produce great quality luminosity. When it comes to hotel spaces you want a bright and inviting space to welcome guests in. LEDs can do this with a variety of colours, temperature and effects at their disposal. They also do all this in an energy economic fashion, saving you both power and money.

Use Dimmers to Conserve Energy

Not only do dimmer switches on lights make guests feel more comfortable in their rooms, they also conserve energy. By cutting down the power and dimming the lights, you stand to use less energy and save more. Making this option available to hotel guests and visitors provides rooms with a relaxing and energy efficient room that can make a real difference to your expenditure.

Use Sensors to Know if a Room is Vacant or Occupied

Hotels have a lot of rooms and a lot of light. It's best for everyone if the lights are kept off when there's no one in the room. Detection sensors will let the lighting features of the hotel know when to have the lights in rooms and corridors on or off. That way no one gets left in the dark, and lights don't have to stay on when they don't need to be. This is another clear way to cut down on energy usage, allowing you to make big savings.

Invest in Quality Design

Making sure you can rely on the lighting is essential in hotels. Investing in quality products means that you will need to replace them less often, saving money and time. Spending more initially on premium quality products makes sense in the long run, as you will make up the difference soon enough and then save money over time.
