Lighting Audit

Spaces with better lighting just feel more comfortable productive and engaging. Though it is often difficult to precisely quantify, both focused research and common experience have shown that, Lighting has a substantial impact on everything from error, scrap and accident rates to employee satisfaction and productivity
Lighting has a unique ability to influence the tone, mood and impressions of our environment. In Commercial and industrial spaces it acts to shape perceptions of vibrancy, cleanliness, pride and efficiency.

Why Lighting audit? 

  • A Comprehensive Lighting audit is crucial to any industry which focuses on energy savings andoccupational health and safety.
  • To compare the existing lighting levels (Lux levels) as against national/international standards/codes (to be in compliance with statutory requirements)
  • To explore the possibilities of energy savings in lighting systems
  • By providing better Illumination to the workplace, an employer can reap benefits of quality and accuracy of the products manufactured
  • Improve occupational health and safety and increased employee satisfaction
  • Preserves or increases the Lighting quality while reducing the energy costs


What to expect from Lighting audit?

A successful audit starts with a survey of customer objectives. A detailed survey may provide opportunity to dramatic energy savings by concentrating on application-specific lighting needs. A lighting audit includes an analysis and explanation of utility charges and how they relate to the existing lighting system as well as any retrofit options being considered. For many commercial and industrial customers electrical demand charges are a significant operating cost. These are analyzed along with standard energy use charges to evaluate and maximize savings potential (this may require analysis of electrical use that is unrelated to lighting).
We determine whether the current lighting equipment has any special features or functions (such as enclosed-rated lensing and gasketing, dimming controls, emergency egress lighting, battery backup, quartz re-strike, etc.) and if these are to be integrated with or replaced by a potential retrofit system.

The auditor also interviews facility staff to identify any special conditions that might affect or be affected by the lighting system (such as: corrosive atmosphere and materials compatibility, excessive or oily airborne contaminants or moisture, food safety code requirements, high or low ambient thermal environment, etc.). Adequacy of illumination for individual tasks and work areas is checked. Qualitative aspects (such as glare, shadowing and uniformity) are also discussed along with practical elements such as maintenance. 

It is important to keep in mind that while inadequate illumination can have host of negative consequences, over lighting generally does not improve visibility in a significant way and represents an opportunity for energy reduction.
