Large facilities often have many overhead lights that eventually burn out and need to be replaced. Think of places like warehouses, schools, large office buildings, arenas, churches, airports, shopping malls, retail centers, and production facilities and the amount of lights they require and use each day. Group relamping is a cost-effective and efficient way to maintain these fixtures and keep the lights on across commercial and industrial businesses.

What is Group Relamping?

Group relamping is the process of replacing large numbers of lamps at the same time. It is a great maintenance solution for existing lights, as well as retrofits for many commercial and industrial businesses.

How does group relamping work?

The process of replacing overhead lamps typically involves a service tech coming out to your location, evaluating the type of lights that need to be replaced, purchasing the replacement, using a ladder or lift to get to the light, replacing it, and then arranging for its disposal. To do this one at a time as lights burn out can be costly and time-consuming.

Group relamping combines this process for the entire facility, in turn saving you time and money.

Group Relamping Benefits

Overseeing a building’s lighting is a big responsibility. It can seem easier and more cost-effective to change one bulb at a time, however it’s actually cheaper to invest in group relamping that can make your work areas brighter and safer.

Group relamping works because it allows you to plan and stay on top of the lighting maintenance for your facility while saving you money. Many consultants and lighting resources suggest this for commercial businesses of all sizes. Take a look at this article, for example.

Hiring a professional to oversee and conduct group relamping for your business comes with many benefits:

  • Energy efficiency
  • Lower labor costs per lamp
  • Easier and less disruptive lighting maintenance
  • Lower costs: Lamps are bought in bulk
  • Easier lamp disposal planning

Using a professional will also allow you to fulfill additional necessary maintenance tasks such as:

  • Checking for broken or damaged lamp holders
  • Replacing failed ballasts
  • Checking on lamp or ballast warranties
  • Lamp recycling
  • The ability to handle difficult locations.

Group Relamping Costs

Every group relamping or retrofit job varies in everything from size, type of light and fixtures, number of technicians, required equipment, time needed, to additional service options. Therefore, pricing will vary as well.

However, group relamping is a cost-effective solution for many businesses and will save you money in the long run. You will be cutting down on labor time and expenses by replacing all the lights at once instead of one at a time as they burn out. It is also a great opportunity to replace or retrofit lights with more energy efficient bulbs, offering a greater ROI and extended lifetime of the light.
