Lighting Upgrades

LED Retrofit & Retrofitting Service

It’s no secret that LED lamps are lighting a path to the future. With incandescent bulbs now unavailable in many jurisdictions, and CFL out of favor because of mercury disposal concerns, more and more households and businesses are turning to the ultra-efficient LED.

LED lighting is an effective way to reduce energy consumption while still providing quality light. LED lamps or lights have a lifespan and electrical efficiency that is several times longer than incandescent lighting, this reduces the cost of replacement and the cost of energy bills each month. LED lighting has become increasingly popular over the years, and the technology continues to improve creating not only a better lighting alternative but a sustainable product. There are several options when considering LED lightings, such as bulbs, tubes, and specialty lighting.

Why LEDs?

LED lighting has made dramatic advancements in the past few years. Costs have been driven down while efficiency and performance has increased significantly. This means lighting upgrades are now one of the best investments your business can make. Where else can you achieve a consistent ROI of over 150%?

Why are LEDs better?

  • LED lamps use only 1/10 the power of other lighting alternatives. They emit virtually no wasted heat and their pure white light remains undimmed by time.
  • Warranty. LED lamps carry a 50,000 hour (5 year) warranty compared to fluorescent lamps that have no warranty.
  • LEDs are more efficient. On average, LEDs use 78% less power consumption than fluorescent lamps.
  • LEDs are directional. Our LED’s emit light at a 120 degree – 180 degree pattern versus 360 degree from fluorescent. This allows us to focus our light on the intended target rather than having our light bounce off the inside of the fixture or casing.
  • LEDs are better for Planet Earth. Did you know that only 20% of fluorescent lamps are being recycled? The rest end up in landfills leaking toxic mercury into the soil. With LEDs, you can be worry-free and know that you are doing your part in keeping not only your business ‘green’, but also the world in which you live.
  • Lower facility maintenance costs, longer lamp life, fewer change-outs and less labor time.
  • Utility rebates and tax credits accelerate cost-savings realized and impact the bottom line immediately.

For these reasons and more, this is why our LED Retrofit Service is something you should definitely look into.

To see how much you will benefit from converting your signs and fixtures from incandescent or fluorescent—we’ll send one of our employees to your business for an assessment. Then we’ll let you know how much the conversions will cost and how long they will take to pay for themselves. In many cases—especially for particularly bright signs or light fixtures—it may not be that long at all.

Lighting Upgrades

Upgrading the existing lighting system to LED is considered one of the easiest and most cost-effective upgrades. Lighting upgrades to a more efficient and sustainable lighting system is a wise investment for any property owner as it considerably improves energy savings. Upgrading an existing lighting system to LED in residential, commercial or institutional properties has an average payback period of just over 2 years. Lighting upgrades provide a considerable return for business and homeowners as it creates a cost-effective alternative with long-term stability.

There are numerous ways to improve existing lighting systems, the first is to replace the older system with a newer and more cost-effective and efficient system. The other way to upgrade lighting is instead of changing the whole system a property owner can upgrade the bulbs, lamps, and fixtures to LED alternatives. Both lighting upgrade strategies are designed to help lower energy use and save on the monthly utility costs. Contact Us today for a lighting upgrade consultation.
