Hotel Replaces CFLs with Plug-and-Play LEDs for Energy and Cost Savings

In search of a solution that would further lower energy costs, routine maintenance, and recycling requirements, the hotel turned to Lunera Lighting for LED lamps to complete the transition to solid-state lighting and maximize energy and maintenance cost savings.

The Sheraton Boston Hotel was on a path to sustainability, having already upgraded guest suites with energy-efficient lighting solutions. But its goal of reducing energy consumption and cost of maintenance property-wide had not yet been realized. In search of a solution that would further lower energy costs, routine maintenance, and recycling requirements, the hotel turned to Lunera Lighting for LED lamps to complete the transition to solid-state lighting and maximize energy and maintenance cost savings.

The Helen Lamp proved an ideal solution, replacing installed CFLs in public gathering spaces, hallways, and hard-to-reach high-ceiling stairways. The plug-and-play feature of the Helen Lamp, made possible by Lunera’s Ballast LED technology, enabled direct replacement of CFLs, keeping installation time and costs low. The 50,000-hour life, five times longer than a CFL, means far few service cycles and replacement lamps, eliminating maintenance costs for the Sheraton as well.

By replacing the 32-watt CFLs with the Helen Lamp, the Sheraton realized more than $40,000 in energy cost savings annually.

“Having a property that is energy-efficient and easy on the maintenance budget was paramount in our selection of the Helen Lamp. The fact that it is also an instant-on LED lamp with beautiful light meant that our guests would enjoy it as much as our facility team,” says Jeff Hanulec, director of engineering, Sheraton Boston Hotel.

By replacing the 32-watt CFLs with the Helen Lamp, the Sheraton realized more than $40,000 in energy cost savings annually. Furthermore, available local utility incentives accelerated the project timeline, helping to quickly obsolete the CFLs at the property and enable the Sheraton Boston to achieve its sustainability objectives.
