Cut Costs by Replacing Items According to Schedule
Group “re-lamping”—that is, replacing the bulbs, or “lamps,” in a certain area, such as common areas, according to a set schedule—is more efficient and less expensive than replacing them separately as they burn out. That’s because group re-lamping saves labor costs and improves lighting for members. Most managers replace bulbs as they burn out, but this approach wastes employees’ time. Every time a bulb burns out on your property, your maintenance staff must fill out a work order and replace the bulb.
You’ll run your property more efficiently by changing all the bulbs in an area at one time. You’ll also save money because buying more bulbs will cost less than paying labor costs. And improving your lighting will also make your property safer. Contact the manufacturer of your bulbs to find out their regular life expectancy. That way, you’ll be able to predict when your bulbs will burn out.
