The rising costs of energy have many companies searching everywhere to find possible ways to reduce their budgets. Many companies have turned to lighting retrofits to significantly reduce their energy costs.

With the Energy Policy Act of 2005, significant rebates and dramatic improvements in lighting technology means there has never been a better time to upgrade your facilities and reap the benefits of a lighting retrofit project.

Whether you have a single location or several thousand locations, CLS Facility Services has the experience to handle any lighting retrofit project. Along with our trusted partners, we can handle the full management of your project from start to finish, including:

What is a lighting retrofit project?

A lighting retrofit project revamps existing lighting technology with more energy efficient systems within the same electrical footprint.

A common lighting retrofit project begins with the removal of existing T12 lamps, magnetic ballasts, and/or HID fixtures and replacing them with T8 / T5 lamps, electronic ballasts, and high bay replacement fixtures within an existing facility. The project results in a positive increase in consistency quantity and quality of light. Energy savings are impactful for your business and make a large environmental impact. New lighting will assist in adhering to government regulations, as old T12 and HID technologies are being phased out.

In addition to T12 retrofits, many companies can benefit from LED and exterior lighting retrofits as well. We can work with you to determine exactly where your company can benefit most from an upgrade.

What are the benefits of a lighting upgrade?

A lighting retrofit project results in a host of benefits:

Looking for the right equation to solve your HVAC problem?

Asset Management + Equipment Analytics = Budget Optimization

Finding the answer doesn’t take magic, it takes logic – PM Logic®.

PM Logic® is an exclusive solution from CLS Facility Services that provides you with easy, web-based access to the industry knowledge you need to optimize your facility management budget.

What information can PM Logic® provide for you?

Do you know the age and condition of the HVAC equipment at all of your facilities?

Do you know when each of your HVAC units was last serviced?

Do you know which of your HVAC units are under warranty and for how long?

Wouldn’t it be nice to have the answers to these questions at your fingertips?

PM Logic® is an easy-to-use platform that provides you with all of these answers and more:

Know your PM Logic® Score

You know that preventative HVAC maintenance is the best way to keep your facilities at the right temperature, but what level and frequency of repairs does your equipment really need? To answer that question, CLS has developed the PM Logic® Score.

The concept is simple – a separate score is created for each roof-top-unit (RTU) based on that specific piece of equipment’s history. Depending on the RTU score, our internal HVAC technical team determines the optimal level and type of repairs needed on the equipment. These focused repair alternatives are then recommended to you.

Knowing your PM Logic® Score is the best way to know what preventative maintenance is right for your equipment and your facility.

Online Management

PM Logic® provides you with a wealth of HVAC asset management knowledge, and, just as importantly, it also makes that knowledge easy to access and manage through our simple online system.
