Building "smart" buildings is what we do, and it's more than a trend. Intelligent facilities are a sound investment in the future. At the heart of our buildings is an infrastructure of lighting, communications, HVAC and security systems operating over a single IP-enabled network. Graybar can help you plan and integrate a building-wide system that saves energy and is easy to manage, both in your existing buildings and new construction projects.
Retrofitting and upgrading your existing lighting systems are extremely effective ways to reduce the energy usage in your buildings. Not only will the savings pay for the upgrades themselves, but may produce a return on investment of up to 45 percent in as little as two years. These upgrades will also improve the quality of light produced while reducing the amount of heat generated, thereby lowering the cost of climate control inside the building. Most of the electrical supplies we distribute are directly compatible with the existing fixture housings as well.
When planning and designing a new building, there are several things Graybar can do to make it energy efficient from the start of its life. Effective daylighting uses natural light from skylights and windows to offset electrical loads during the daytime. Designed and implemented properly, it can have a drastic effect on the monthly energy bill. Making use of motion-controlled occupancy sensors, manual and daylight controlled dimmer switches, and time scheduling, your building won't be wasting energy by lighting an empty room.
