Lighting Control Systems: Countless Benefits

We have often detailed the benefits of building automation, both for bottom-line savings and the environment. Advanced Control Corporation also provides the ability to expand your building automation system to include lighting control. Lighting control allows you to remotely toggle the power to individual or groups of lights and other devices in order to save energy and the costs it incurs.

In addition to being part of sustainable architecture and lighting design for green building energy conservation programs, lighting control provides a slew of other benefits as well. Here are some benefits that allow you to save energy and improve your working environment with Advanced Control’s lighting systems:

  • Increase comfort and improve productivity: Energy-saving light controls help to create a more visually comfortable environment, contributing to increased productivity. Reduce the energy consumption in any given room and improve the quality of work from its occupants.
  • Save energy with dimmers: Dimmers save 4 to 9 percent in electricity costs, even at the highest lighting levels, over a standard on-off switch. The more you dim, the more you save.
  • More dimming benefits: Although incandescent lights are most often associated with dimming, all lighting sources, including halogen, LED bulbs and CFLs, can be dimmed. A halogen light source dimmed 35% reduces energy use by 28%. On average, dimming an incandescent or halogen light will reduce energy consumption by about 20%.

There are innumerable benefits to implementing a lighting control system in your building. Green your business practices while pocketing the funds that would otherwise be allocated to high energy costs.
