We specialize in bringing energy-efficient solutions and logistical support to commercial, construction and government industries. Lighting alone accounts for more than 20 percent of the energy costs in most commercial buildings. In as little as 2 years, lighting upgrades can pay for themselves and even offer a significant return on investment. Graybar Decatur can assist in retrofitting and overhauling any existing buildings and even help in the planning of new buildings. A lighting retrofit is an effective and simple way to make your existing building more energy efficient. These retrofits not only improve lighting quality, but also result in less heat buildup in the building envelope, reducing air conditioning costs. By swapping out existing lamps and ballast systems, newer, better systems can be installed directly into the old fixture housing. This reduces the effort involved with removing and repairing ceiling tiles, and cuts down on turnaround time. As one of the largest commercial lighting suppliers in the country, Graybar has thousands of products to choose from when retrofitting a building. When new building projects are started, it would be wise to design them from the ground up to be energy efficient. You can incorporate advanced control systems that automatically take data from around the building using occupancy sensors and dimmers. With the added savings produced by integral day light sources designed into the structure, peak energy usage periods become lower in usage. Graybar Decatur offers a full array of electrical supplies and the know-how to help you make use of them.
