Fabiano Brothers Reduces Energy Consumption and Increases Productivity with LED Office Lighting

Posted by Jesse Cameron on Jul 12, 2017 10:53:39 AM
 
Fabiano Brothers decided that they wanted to convert their office lighting to LED lighting, like the rest of their facility is equipped with. They knew that the savings benefits of LED lighting were significant, but they also were attracted to other benefits of LED lighting too. Electro-Matic Visual was able to supply the LED panel lights that are virtually maintenance free and are designed to provide employees with higher energy levels.
 
The LED panel lights were adjusted to accommodate the workers environment. Correct lighting where employees are present has been proven to provide them with higher energy levels to help them stay focused, be more positive and more productive.

“The LED lights are much less expensive to operate, are a whiter light that gives our facility a more state of the art appearance, and have been very well received by our employees from a functional standpoint.” - John M. Bicknell II, COO, Fabiano Brothers, Inc.

The LED panel lights are ideal for these spaces because of their ability to not only produce efficient light but also consistent light. Traditional fluorescent light can not be projected in a particular direction, where LEDs can. Having a consistent light throughout a given area gives a room more visibility and virtually no dead spots.

Weathervane Installs LED Sign To Maximize Exposure

Posted by Jesse Cameron on Jul 12, 2017 10:51:04 AM
 
Weathervane Heating and Cooling, Inc. of Howell, MI is known for their high quality, “Luxaire” Heating and Air Conditioning units and their professional knowledge on heating, cooling, and ventilation. Weathervane offers the highest level of home comfort by consisting of efficient, reliable and cost effective products and services. Much like Weathervane’s foundation, Electro-Matic Visual’s LED displays proved to be the right fit because it matched the high level of efficiency, reliability, and cost effectiveness and with the help from Image 360 the project was able to be completed.

Image 360 and Electro-Matic Visual were able to give Weathervane this attractive sign to help them reach the traffic driving by. Their location sits well above the road and it was previously harder for people to identify what exactly the building was on top of the hill.

“Weathervane Heating & Cooling had no sign and are 100 feet above road level. They needed a unique way to communicate to vehicles driving by. Electro-Matic Visual’s message boards got the job done.” – Joe Agius, Sign Designer, Sales & Content Creator, Image 360 – Brighton, MI

Now with their new LED sign they are able to communicate with passing traffic to promote their “Luxaire” Heating and Air Conditioning units and their best service offers. Not only are they able to promote deals on products and services, but now their sign can help build their brand image and professionalism that they have.

Pfeiffer Used Car Lot Transitions From Dim Metal Halide to Brighter LED Parking Lot Lights

Posted by Jesse Cameron on Jun 14, 2017 9:51:55 AM
 
The Dan Pfeiffer Automotive Group has several different locations throughout the Grand Rapids, MI area. The result from having so many different locations is a lot of selections of great cars, but also a lot of area to light during the after hours. Pfeiffer Used Cars & Quick Lane Auto Center was searching for a more efficient way to increase their lighting levels in their lot, that resides directly off of Highway 131. Electro-Matic Visual stepped in to help provide a solution. 

After the lighting audit was determined, Electro-Matic Visual and Appearance Products worked together with Pfeiffer Used Cars & Quick Lane Auto Center to complete the installation process. “Working with EM visual has been great for our LED lighting division. I rely on them to do site surveys, photometric layouts, and recommending the best product so all I need to worry about is selling the job and handling installation. And since their products are made in Michigan I know my customer is getting the maximum rebate possible.” – Ryan DeHoog, General Manager, Appearance Products.

Electro-Matic Visual and Appearance Products are happy to see that not only did Pfeiffer Used Cars & Quick Lane Auto Center receive a maximum rebate possible by buying a Michigan made product, but they are also reducing their energy savings by over a third. All 83 fixtures were swapped out from metal halide lights to Electro-Matic Visual’s LED parking lot lights for optimal savings and efficiency.

Pfeiffer Used Car & Quick Lane Auto Center will continue to see energy savings throughout their estimated life time of over 100,000 hours and with virtually zero maintenance costs, their LED lights for their parking lot seem to be the perfect solution.
