High-Bay Lighting

Operation and Maintenance Tips

Tip No. 1

Turn off all or some of the lights when an area is not in use, particularly at night and on weekends.

Tip No. 2

Install timers or occupancy sensors to switch off lights when light is not needed.

Tip No. 3

Keep the fixtures clean so that the light output is not dimmed or blocked.

Tip No. 4

If the high-bay area is also lit by daylight, and if the luminaires have dimming ballasts, install photosensors to automatically adjust automatically the output of the lights based on the amount of light detected.
