Hotels want us to feel welcome and at home in their properties, and that includes creating the right ambiance through lighting – and lots of it! Just think how many lights are used in hotels between common areas such as hallways, parking, reception, dining, and entertainment areas. And then each suite often includes traditional lamps, sconces, and ceiling fixtures. Together, these all add up to thousands of light fixtures, with most of them operating 24/7, consuming a huge amount of energy, and that’s the key to energy savings for hotels.
So, just how big can the pot of gold be for hotel operators that make the move to LED’s? In this post we are looking at the energy savings for hotels.
To illustrate just how dramatic the energy savings can be for holtels, lets look at actual examples using our most recent group of eight hotels that were retrofit with LED lighting by our team of LED lighting Installation professionals.
The combined average return-on-investment (ROI) was over 200% – with a payback on there investment of just over 6-months!
LED lighting also offers hotel guests a feeling of greater security in tradionally under-lit areas such as indoor and outdoor parking lots, stairways, and hallways.
