Lighting and Your Bottom Line

It’s critical that hotel owners understand how lighting can have a direct effect on their guests’ satisfaction as well as their own profitability, overhead, energy and disposal/recycling costs.

Hotels are 24/7 operations so even minor increases in operating efficiencies will result in significant savings. Installing or upgrading to more energy efficient, longer life lighting systems will result in reduced energy consumption and fewer lamp replacements. Longer replacement intervals mean less interruption of hotel operations and lower maintenance costs.

Hotel owners concerned about the cost of new lighting systems need to look beyond the initial capital investment and consider the long-term benefits and ROI. Capital investments in lighting systems are small in comparison with RevPAR. Good lighting directly affects guest satisfaction and the contribution they make to your hotel’s annual revenue.
