LED is a good investment for companies since it is energy efficient, has high-quality lighting solution and inexpensive. However, in order for you to be sure that they will be installed correctly you must find yourself a good lighting contractor. Their scope of work is the audit, design, and installation of your LED retrofit project Here are some tips how to select a good lighting contractor.
Get at least three bids from different companies To ensure that you will have plenty of choices, conduct a canvas on all of the lighting contractors that interests you and have them submit a price quotation for the project. The price quotation must contain the scope of work and all the fees they will charge you with. Ask whether they will charge you of the purchase of their tools or whether it is already provided. If the contractor is located far from your company, will they charge some travel costs. Check each of the submitted quotations and shortlist those that fit your budget. The initial visit must be done for free for them to measure out the amount of work to be done.
Make sure that you are paying for the quality of their work. Make sure that you will not have to spend any more money after the installment. To elaborate, some contractors install the LED but do not put the ballast in then they would make them pay for the maintenance fees in order to lengthen its life. It is a must that the contractor provides you financing, rebate filing, utility bill auditing or honor the warranties.
Check out their credibility. Check their website and read the reviews to see if there have been any complaints about them. A good contractor would care about each customers’ complaints. Make sure also that you ask them to provide you a portfolio on their previous customers so you can contact them to validate their identity. Inquire about their previous projects if they had any problems and they were able to solve it.
Have them show you their training certificates and the technical schools they went to. They must have all of these since it would mean they are capable of doing the job. They should be able to answer your questions about the project.
Their labor and the product must be provided with a warranty. It is important that they are willing to do any repairs if in the case that the LED light would not work after the installation.
Lastly, they should not damage your home during the project. They should be responsible if they have broken any of your valuables or your landscaping and will not charge you on the work for the repair.
