It is no secret that traditional lighting technologies such as fluorescent, incandescent, and high-intensity discharge (HID) are being replaced by high-efficiency, long-lasting Light Emitting Diode (LED) solutions. Upgrading to LED is a proven way to reduce the depletion of valuable energy resources, save money on utility bills, and reduce costly maintenance charges. The upfront expense of transitioning an entire property or facility to LED all at once can be daunting and out of budget for some customers. From changing bulbs to addressing ballast and wiring issues, the operational costs and labor involved in maintaining these systems can significantly impact your budget. The shorter lifespan of Fluorescent, Incandescent, and HID bulbs demand more frequent replacement, causing disruptions and downtime in your space. What if I told you there was a way to replace your traditional, legacy light bulbs with LED without the high upfront cost of a full lighting retrofit? Lumenal Lighting’s Planned Lighting Upgrade Maintenance (PLUM) is a sensible approach to address immediate maintenance demands and a strategic investment that pays off in the long run. You will be able to save money and energy by upgrading your lighting to LED, one bulb at a time.

What is Planned Lighting Upgrade Maintenance?

Lumenal Lighting’s Planned Lighting Upgrade Maintenance service model gives clients the opportunity to replace existing legacy lamps and ballasts with LED equivalents. The benefits are long-term maintenance avoidance, energy savings, and future-proofing existing fixtures against legacy material shortages, long lead times, and obsolescence.

PLUM is an innovative approach to lighting upkeep and operations. Traditionally when commercial properties and facilities experience a lighting outage, a licensed electrician is contracted to repair the failed fixture or replace the lamp and ballast with like in kind. Because outdated lighting technologies are being phased out, such as T12 fluorescent lamps and PCB ballasts, availability can be an issue or replacement unwise. You might have to wait for parts delivery and schedule the electrical technician’s return service visit. During this downtime, the light fixture in question is still not working and you are without light. PLUM services avoid these hassles by upgrading that fixture to LED, usually in a single trip.

What are the Advantages of PLUM?

By signing up for scheduled PLUM services, clients take an alternative, more sensible approach to lighting maintenance. Lumenal Lighting dispatches licensed electrical technicians to the property or facility on a pre-determined schedule – monthly, quarterly, or bi-annually. During the site visit, the electrical technicians check for outages and indicators of imminent lamp and ballast failures. Those fixtures will be relamped with their LED equivalent for greater efficiency and longer life expectancy. Clients may also choose a more proactive approach with a pre-determined Not to Exceed (NTE). For NTE clients, the technician will upgrade as many fixtures to LED as the budget will allow.

PLUM clients also secure better labor rates, based on their chosen frequency schedule:
