Homeowners Associations have a lot of lighting demands. Parking lots. Sidewalks. Tennis courts. Courtyards. Not only do homeowners demand safe and consistent lighting—they need it done affordably. An efficient HOA LED lighting design and installation can have major benefits for your neighborhood.
Five Reasons Homeowners Associations Should Switch to LED Lighting—Now
Running an HOA comes with a unique set of challenges. Your lighting should not be one of these challenges. Switching to LED lighting will make life easier on you and the homeowners for the following reasons:
- LED lighting for HOAs can save as much as 60% on lighting bills. With electricity costs expected to go up in the next five years, there’s no better time to cut back dramatically on any lighting costs you can.
- LEDs allow you to “go green.” With less money spent on lighting comes greater efficiency—efficiency that reduces the carbon footprint of your Homeowners Association and helps you avoid bulbs with low lifespans and excessive chemicals.
- LEDs are the way of the future thanks to increased lighting regulations—depending on these regulations, you may not be able to install anything else but LED when the time comes for a lighting replacement. Switching to LED now saves money and will save time on future lighting changes.
- LEDs save you money over the long-term as well, paying for themselves sometimes a soon as 3 years after installation. Considering that many LED lighting fixtures have an expected lifespan of 5 years, that means installing LED lighting essentially qualifies as a long-term investment that stands to reduce your HOA expenses down the line as well as
- LED lighting is safe and consistent. The needs of homeowners associations are wide-ranging, from lighting parking lots to tennis courts, but one variable is always needed: consistency. With consistent, safe lighting, you can better focus your attention to other areas within your HOA that need addressing. This frees up room in the budget and time to take care of other important issues for homeowners.
