Lutron Services Company, a division of Lutron Electronics Co., Inc., provides solutions to upgrade or fully replace an existing lighting control system, from start to finish.
Stop living in the past with an outdated, inefficient lighting control system that no longer serves your building’s needs. LSC has the expertise and product solutions to enhance and update your building’s current lighting system and modernize the way your facility runs.
A new system brings advanced control features and energy saving capabilities that will take your lighting control experience to the next level. Those control features include daylight harvesting, peak demand load shed, occupancy and vacancy sensing, and integration with other room and building technologies. LSC can create plans for lighting strategies, utilizing these and other features, which can improve building efficiency and save energy.
Replacing an existing system with state-of-the-art technology can increase productivity, occupant comfort, and energy savings while lowering building operating costs. For commercial structures, the U.S. Energy Information Administration reports that lighting accounts for about 40 percent of an office building’s annual electricity use.
By replacing an outdated system with new energy-saving technologies, a building can achieve better system performance, resulting in optimized energy consumption. In fact, LSC offers energy audits to review a building’s current performance and suggest strategies that can result in better system performance and more efficient energy usage.
“Upgrading an existing system can achieve better performance, reliability, and even aesthetics,” said Glen Kruse, Director of Lutron Services Company. “Our team will work to develop a plan for your specific requirements and determine installation options that best meet your schedule and business needs.”
LSC will analyze your existing control system and fully review any contracting or purchasing options. They will then determine the most cost effective way to upgrade to the functionality you want and provide you with a preliminary budget and project schedule. Once you choose a solution, LSC will manage all elements of the project. After start-up is completed, LSC provides personalized training on the new system for the appropriate facility personnel.
LSC can also upgrade your system with minimal impact on building operations. Depending on the circumstances, some existing wiring, backboxes, and controls can even be reused.
For those considering building expansions now or in the future, Lutron’s systems are modular and expandable. This allows facilities to add capabilities or capacity to any part of a building or campus. Use LSC to consolidate multiple lighting systems or integrate with other technologies such as A/V, DMX-512, building management systems, or electronic window shades.
