Keeping customers happy and safe should be priorities of any business or commercial property owners. If you have a place of business where people come to you, that starts when they park their car. Let’s find out how to keep your parking lot well lit at night by maintaining your lights.


Popular Types of Parking Lot Lights

With today’s modern lighting technology, a light bulb is no longer just a light bulb. There are a wide assortment of styles available that offer different illumination, energy efficiency, and budgets. Selecting lights for parking lots that have long lamp life might cost more upfront but will lower your long term maintenance needs. Listed below are some of the more common lamps used to brighten up parking lot:

  • Metal Halide Lighting - Do not confuse this type of lighting with halogen lamp lighting. The high-intensity lamp relies on an electric arc for light production.
  • Low-Pressure Sodium Lighting - Suitable for use indoors and outdoors, these lamps produce monochromatic yellow light.
  • High-Pressure Sodium Lighting - A better option for parking lot lights is high-pressure sodium lighting because the spectrum of light produced is generous.
  • Mercury Vapor Lighting - Vaporized mercury and an electric arc work together to discharge lighting with this type of lamp.

Hiring an Electrician

While it is possible to install parking lot lights on your own, the easier, better and safer option would be to contact a qualified electrician with a boom truck. Having a boom truck allows the electrician to quickly and safely change out parking lot lights without disrupting your business.
