We need light in the dark.
Were you afraid of the dark as a child? I definitely was. I made sure my Scooby-Doo night light was plugged in each and every night. I also fell asleep facing that direction, so that the dark wasn’t as scary.
It wasn’t the dark that was particularly scary; the possibilities of ghosts, monsters under the bed (or in your closet- thanks, Monsters, Inc.), or any other goblins that would get me as soon as I closed my eyes scared me the most.
Nowadays, I’m not nearly as terrified of the dark as I was in the past. In fact, I prefer my bedroom to be a cave – pitch black and cold – at night.
Maybe a better way of phrasing how I feel about the dark now is this:
The dark makes me uncomfortable.
I would imagine numerous others feel the same way about it.
Ever been outside, alone, in the dark, walking to your car? When I was in college, I had many a social event that lasted until past midnight. My walk to the car was more like a sprint. I had to make sure I got to my vehicle as fast as possible.
I couldn’t risk the possibilities of who or what would be roaming around in the wee hours of the morning.
That brings up the question: Do your customers get the same uncomfortable feeling while in your parking lot at night?
Parking lot lighting = safety.
Parking lot lighting is often a neglected part of a business. It’s understandable; a business owner has important things to take care of! However, this aspect should not be ignored. Your customers’ safety is at hand.
A business property is the first impression passersby have of a company. Just as you want them to feel comfortable inside your doors, you also want them to feel safe outside.
Simply put, if your parking lot isn’t well-lit, your customers will have a negative impression of your business. They will get an uncomfortable feeling.
If you’re starting to think you need to reconsider your parking lot lighting, you’re in luck. Our installers have been switching lights from incandescent and fluorescent bulbs to LED for years.
The lighting will be vivid, reach a larger surface area, and create a safer space for your customers.
Plus, using LED to replace older lighting solutions can save your business up to 94% on electricity and provide roughly 30,000 hours (10-12 years) per fixture. Check out our blog on LED conversions to learn more.
