Property Managers are under the impression that HOA’s need a service contract for lighting. This mode of thought used to be sensible, especially if the community has to maintain their street and parking lot lights that are in high, hard to reach pole fixtures.
In recent years LED lights for parking and street applications have revolutionized lighting. Commercial LED’s have a long life and are able to keep the light levels high AND save significant money on utility bills creating a return on investment (ROI)for many years after they pay for themselves. Many LED fixtures are rated for lifetimes upward of 100,000 hours, without any need for maintenance. Commercial Lighting maintenance contracts should be eliminated from HOA budgets. We always install DLC listed LEDs as required by the utility company rebates qualified products lists. Pricing on LED fixtures has steadily decreased while functionality has reached unprecedented levels.
