Green Tech: Four Ways to Sell Green Tech for Warmer Weather
Now that the polar vortex is almost behind us, your clients are eager to get outside and enjoy the Spring and Summer weather. This is a great time for you to capitalize on the warmer seasons by offering your clients a range of eco-friendly technology solutions. Here are a few energy-efficient ways you can increase sales by upgrading your client’s home technology—indoor and out.
Outdoor LED Lighting
When the ice melts, your clients want to get outside, fire up the grill, and invite friends and family over. Nicely planned lighting scenes should always accent outdoor entertaining in the warmer weather.
LED lighting offers you and your clients a great opportunity to enhance their outdoor entertaining space with an energy-efficient solution.
However, not all LED bulbs and fixtures are equal. Picking the right bulbs is key to making a great outdoor setting work and really setting the mood for a spring/summer get-together. Picking the wrong ones … well, maybe that will bring in a small aircraft that mistakes your client’s lights for a landing beacon, or maybe it will just send a signal to their neighbors to crash the party!
LED bulb and fixture specs are very precise and they allow you to “design your light” just the way your clients want it, while saving them up to 80 percent on the part of their electric bill that’s allocated to lighting!
Indoor LED Lighting
But what happens indoors when the weather gets warm? Your client’s old incandescent bulbs (which have been phased out) throw off more heat than they realize. Let’s face it: A 150-watt flood light isn’t all that far away from a heat lamp, and halogens can get into the 400-degree range! Eliminating heat by replacing those bulbs with LEDs saves money in several ways. Most notably, it lightens the load on your client’s air-conditioning unit from having to overcome the heat generated by their lights, which, by the way, use up to 80 percent less energy. Of course, at the end of the night when everybody’s gone and you accidentally leave a few on, you’ll be using less energy by a WIDE margin. Sleep tight!
