When you’re in the market to purchase a new car, the sticker price isn’t the only number to consider. A well-informed buying decision is aided by visibility into the cost of insurance, maintenance, gas, and any interest accrued on the purchase, if you’ll be depending on financing.
It’s also important to note that, unlike real estate purchases, cars almost always depreciate in value.
This kind of 360-degree buying approach is also useful in lighting buying decisions. Just like there’s more to consider than sticker price and horsepower when buying a car, price and wattage or lumens aren’t the only considerations when you’re in the market for new or replacement lighting.
