Art Van Partners with Lighting Supply for Major Energy Savings


Michigan’s largest furniture retailer and Michigan’s leading lighting distributor execute a plan for over $1 Million in annual savings


Ferndale, MI – August 15, 2012

Lighting Supply Company, Michigan’s leading commercial lighting distributor, aided Art Van Furniture with their innovative new lighting program targeted at significantly reducing energy costs. The initiative involved replacing over 38,000 incandescent lamps throughout 34 Art Van showrooms.

After working with Lighting Supply on an intensive multi-year product review that included numerous LED lamps from several manufacturers, Art Van selected the 13 watt Philips EnduraLED PAR30 lamp. The LED provides a clean, bright light that saves Art Van 63 watts of energy per lamp and 2,356,248 watts annually. This will result in energy savings of over $1 million per year.

“We were extremely excited to support David Winowiecki, Art Van’s property manager, and the entire Art Van team through the LED selection and purchase process. We’ve been Art Van’s vendor of choice for over 15 years and it’s an honor to partner with such a progressive company,” said Matt McIntosh, Lighting Supply sales manager.

With an average life span of 50,000 hours, the Philips LED lasts 20 times longer than the lamps previously utilized by Art Van. These new LED lamps generate significantly less heat, meaning a reduction in facility costs directly attributable to the decrease in heat load.

“In addition to tremendous energy and cost savings, we utilized our industry expertise to obtain significant lighting rebates from three Michigan utility companies – DTE Energy, Consumers Energy and Lansing Board of Water and Lighting. This allowed Art Van to maximize their return on investment,” commented Sherry Sherman, Lighting Supply account manager.
