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.
“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.
