A lighting Energy Survey is an audit conducted to assess lighting systems’ energy consumption to make necessary changes and improvements. This survey is based on an assessment of lighting quality about the needed lighting requirements. Here we will cover some critical aspects of Lighting Energy Surveys:
- What do Lighting Energy Surveys generally include?
- Why are these surveys so vital to commercial operations?
- How can Fielda increase the efficiency of your Lighting Energy Survey process?
What Lighting Energy Surveys include: During Light Energy Surveys, inspectors check the available lighting infrastructure and level of lighting in warehouses, factories, commercial complexes, office rooms, and common areas. They usually record measurements such as the area and height of the working spaces, the number, type, and specifications of the lighting fixtures, and the intensity of light in a particular place, measured in units called lux. They use this information to calculate current electricity consumption and costs depending on the operational hours. These surveys also check for the issues like glare, lighting too dim, flickering lights, etc., which cause health and safety issues for workers.
What makes Lighting Energy Surveys so vital to commercial operations: Poor lighting can cause accidents when workers cannot read labels correctly, follow instruction manuals, or see machine parts while operating them. Too much light also causes visibility problems and significantly increases the cost of electricity. Lighting Energy Surveys highlight the actual light required versus the current light provided by existing systems and help companies rationalize the energy utilization. They also enable them to replace outdated lighting infrastructure. Lighting equipment changes can be made in several lights, types of lights (like LED replacements of traditional tubes and bulbs), and other decisions based on data like frequency of use, service history, etc. With critical data points from lighting energy surveys, businesses can make decisions regarding their lighting systems using data points such as frequency of use, service history, etc.
How Fielda can improve Lighting Energy Surveys: Inspectors must document large amounts of data, sometimes across huge factories, offices, and warehouses. Surveys are conducted using cameras and lux meters to record details within each working area. Fielda makes this field data gathering process much more convenient for inspectors through its seamless data capture facility – customized digital forms completed with simple clicks and menu selections and evidence captured directly from their mobile device. This convenience makes surveys faster, more efficient, and more accurate.
