Keep Your Facility Lit Efficiently and Safely

Com­mer­cial light­ing has sev­er­al impli­ca­tions for a business’s bot­tom line, prof­it mar­gin, and safe­ty. Not only do these lights make up about a third of a business’s ener­gy costs — they also con­tribute to the expe­ri­ence of cus­tomers and employ­ees alike. Light bulb and bal­last chang­ing ser­vices are among the many com­mer­cial maintenance services offered by The Budd Group. Our team of pro­fes­sion­als aims to help busi­ness­es reduce their ener­gy out­put, increase work­place safe­ty, and uti­lize the right light­ing for their spe­cif­ic needs.

What Are Ballasts?

Bal­lasts are elec­tron­ic or elec­tro­mag­net­ic devices that help reg­u­late the volt­age out­put of cer­tain kinds of bulbs, such as flu­o­res­cent and high-inten­si­ty dis­charge (HID) lights. These types of lights draw a lot of elec­tri­cal cur­rent, mean­ing they burn bright, hot, and fast. A bal­last lim­its this ener­gy use, sav­ing a busi­ness mon­ey while taming and pre­serv­ing the life of the light.

Different Types of Bulbs and Lighting Options

A busi­ness might use various types of bulbs, each differing in effi­cien­cy, bright­ness, heat out­put, etc. The Budd Group is equipped to work with all types of light­ing, including:

  • Incan­des­cent Bulbs
  • Flu­o­res­cent Lights
  • Halo­gen Bulbs
  • LED Lights
  • HID Bulbs
  • Met­al Halide Lights
  • ...and more!

Bal­lasts aren’t nec­es­sary for all types of light­ing (i.e. incan­des­cent, LED), but they’re need­ed for a num­ber of bulb types, such as flu­o­res­cent lights, HID bulbs, and met­al halide lamps.

Why Replacing Bulbs and Ballasts Matters

Replac­ing bulbs and bal­lasts is an essen­tial part of build­ing main­te­nance. Mod­ern light­ing sys­tems can last a long time. How­ev­er, all bulbs will need to be changed over time. This is part­ly a mat­ter of aes­thet­ics, as flick­er­ing, fad­ing, and dis­col­ored lights can harm a business’s look and atmos­phere. But more impor­tant­ly, replac­ing old bulbs and bal­lasts is a mat­ter of safe­ty and ener­gy preser­va­tion. Wait­ing too long to replace lights can lead to over­heat­ing, explo­sions, elec­tri­cal fail­ure, and more.

Old­er lights also tend to use more ener­gy than new­er lights, raising a busi­ness’ ener­gy costs. When it’s time to change out bulbs and bal­lasts, leave it to lighting maintenance professionals. The Budd Group can prop­er­ly remove, install, and help main­tain every kind of light­ing system.

At The Budd Group, our approach to facil­i­ty main­te­nance is holis­tic, encom­pass­ing every aspect and com­po­nent that keeps a build­ing and busi­ness safe and suc­cess­ful. This includes light­ing sys­tems main­te­nance, designed to max­i­mize bulb longevi­ty and effi­cien­cy, reduce ener­gy costs, and ensure safe­ty.

Testimonials

Dane Slaughter, Greenville-Spartanburg Airport District

I have worked with The Budd Group since 2011, and I have been very pleased and impressed with their staff, account managers, and regional support they provide. They have been very prompt to respond if there is an issue with the janitorial services. They provide an exceptional service and understand the importance of greeting our passengers and guests to allow them to have a wonderful experience when traveling. I view their service as a partnership and count on them daily to deliver exceptional quality to our tenants, passengers, staff, and business partners.

Guy Harley, Wake Forest University Health Sciences

The Budd Group provides exceptional custodial services for our campus. We are grateful for their service to our patients, families, visitors, staff and faculty for over 40 years. The Budd Group is very responsive to our requests and needs, and we truly believe in their loyalty and commitment to our success.

Billy D. Smith, Kershaw County School District

I personally have had the best experience and relationship with The Budd Group. From their owner all the way to their day porters, they take great pride in representing the company name, and doing the best job they can. During these unprecedented pandemic times The Budd Group has been flexible and responsive to the changing needs our district has had in every way. With every firm that we have used there have been issues, but no firm has ever been as responsive, and as quick to fix whatever the issue may be as The Budd Group!

Nick Mincey, Orange County Schools

The Budd Group has gone above and beyond in providing custodial services to our district. Following a lengthy RFP process, we as a committee selected them to help our district achieve a new and rejuvenating approach to campus cleaning and facility care. We asked them to take on a difficult task of staffing, and preparing schools for the start of our school year with only 6 weeks of transition time. We all knew it would be difficult at best. However, with the help of their Human Resources department and successful hiring strategies, we were up and running by the time our Staff members began to enter the campuses for the school year.

Blaise Winch, Capsugel

The Budd Group has been providing services to Capsugel for over 6 years. The service provided has been excellent and professional. They perform duties in multiple locations including a manufacturing plant, distribution center, office area, machine shop and fitness center. They clean all of the following types of areas at those various locations: office, bathroom, cafeteria, fitness center, locker room, shipping/receiving and CGMP production areas. As it relates to CGMP experience, they also created a sanitation program for the cGMP areas, maintain and created their own operating instructions, maintain document control and follow all cGMP guidelines for hygiene and documentation.

Susan A. Maddux, Presbyterian College

The Budd Group has become a true partner with Presbyterian College. They have taken the time to fully understand our mission and become a true part of the Blue Hose family. The housekeeping staff often pull off miracles when given very little time to clean a space on campus between events. They work long hours and respond 24/7 to emergencies on campus. The landscaping team has transformed the grounds of the campus such that the college regularly gets positive feedback from those who visit the campus. Before outsourcing to The Budd Group, the college performed these services in house. We have seen significant improvement in both housekeeping and grounds since The Budd Group took over.
