Specialized home and business lighting

Want to swap out the hospital-like stark lighting of florescent fixtures in your kitchen with low-profile recessed can lights?  How about adding a new chandelier in your entryway?  Updating the interior lighting of your home can have a big visual payoff.

Retrofit all those florescent fixtures in your business with LED bulbs.  Not only will you qualify for tax deductions and rebates, but you’ll save on your electric bill every month as well.

Lighting Retrofits

Retrofitting your conventional lighting systems with LEDs is something Elk Ridge Electric frequently does for commercial buildings in Billings.  This upgrade to your light fixtures increases energy efficiency.  In many instances, energy costs can be cut by 50% or more following a lighting retrofit.  Not only that, but the owner also often qualifies for tax deductions to help offset the costs of this improvement.

This upgrade also improves the quality of light levels and reduces maintenance.  Better light levels mean improved safety and increased aesthetics of the workspace.  And because of the long life span of LED lighting, there will be a reduction in the need for costly replacement parts and labor.  Win, win.

Commercial Security Lighting

There are four primary types of commercial security lighting.  Wall packs light areas that are next to the building.  LED parking lights are mounted on poles and light parking lots.  Flood lights can be mounted to poles or the perimeter, which can provide pin point lighting or cover large areas.  Finally, LED high mast lights can be mounted on tall poles to provide some diffuse light to large areas.

The best security is typically provided with a combination of these types of security lighting options so that there is overlapping in the cones of light during the night hours.  It’s also helpful to have multiple types in case one light goes out, the others help cover the darker area until that light can be repaired or replaced.

Commercial Signage Lighting

There are several ways the electricians at Elk Ridge Electric light commercial signs around the Billings area.  They use lightboxes to make a professional and striking backlit sign.  Or they can wire front-lighting channel lighter signs.  Front-lit channel signs have a bold effect, making them a very popular choice.  Halo-lit signs have a sophisticated look by using LED or neon lights to illuminate each element from behind.  Finally, the electricians at Elk Ridge Electric can wire your big neon sign – that iconic neon glow that leans heavily into that vintage feel from yesteryear.

Maybe it’s not the sign itself that needs wired, but the area around your sign. Recessed lighting can be installed to light shadowy areas of your signage, ground lighting can be installed to illuminate monument type signs, or top lighting can light those dimensional letter or hand-painted signs.

Ceiling Fan Installation
