Lighting Maintenance Blog Series: Lighting Maintenance Policy

This is the second in a series of posts about lighting maintenance.

In the first part of this blog series, the principles of lighting maintenance were discussed as a proactive solution to reducing energy usage.

The second part of proper lighting maintenance is developing a policy. A lighting maintenance policy is a set of written procedures designed to serve as a guideline, not only for everyday maintenance practices, but for optimizing lighting systems on a year-round basis.

A lighting maintenance policy should coordinate with your overall energy management strategy.

Elements of an effective maintenance policy include:

  • Blueprints of the facility
  • Fixture and lighting controls schedule
  • Equipment and service provider sources and contacts, including utility contacts
  • Fixture cleaning and relamping schedule with service tracking log
  • Procedures for relamping, reballasting, and cleaning fixtures
  • Procedures for the adjustment of controls and occupancy sensors
  • An overview of proper lamp and ballast disposal
