    Default Indoor Arena Light Replacement

    I'm about to sign a lease for a facility with an indoor. According to the commercial lease, we are responsible for replacing the indoor's lights if they burn out. I don't have any specifications for the lights but I was hoping to get a ballpark estimate of what one might cost to replace. TIA!

    What kind of lights? The metal halide bulbs are around
    $20 each. Florescents, the 8' ones meant for cold climate
    use, are $5-$10 each. Probably not using ordinary light
    bulbs (although I have seen indoor arenas so lit). Those
    can be had for around $1-$2 for a box of 4 bulbs. None
    of the types I mentioned require an expert to replace,
    you can do it yourself or hire a handiman type to do it.
    Only problem may be that you will need scaffolding or
    tall stepladder to reach the fixture.

    If the indoor arena ceiling is so high that you can not reach it from a tall step ladder you may have to rent a scissor lift from a rental place to change the lights, that may be the most expensive part. Also have to leave the scissor lift on a flat trailer and drive it in the arena that way, they don't work on non-solid floors. The rental place near me rents a lift for $75 for 4 hours.

    Yes, they are high up so we would probabaly need some sort of lift. Unfortunately, I don't know what type of lights they are. Thanks for the info!
