Making the Switch to LED Retrofit
Whether your facility is a parking garage, commercial building, or warehouse, you could benefit from an LED retrofit. Here’s Why:
What is LED Retrofitting?
LED retrofitting means to replace your existing lighting with a new and better lighting technology, preferably to increase the energy efficiency and the quality of light in the facility. Retrofitting is a term often used when converting older, outdated lighting technologies such as fluorescent, CFL and HID to a newer energy-efficient technology, like an LED system
Benefits of LED Retrofitting
- Higher Return on Investment
LED fixtures consume 75% less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs. Due to the decrease in energy consumption your facility is guaranteed lower utility bills and overhead expenses. Your capital investment will quickly be met and provide higher returns.
- Less Maintenance
LEDs last 25 times longer than traditional lights so bulbs will require fewer maintenance repairs, allowing employees to focus on other tasks, increase productivity and minimize safety hazards.
- Improved Sales
Lighting color can have an interesting impact on sales. For example, warm colors in your facility can create a feeling of familiarity, which can help to foster resident, employee and customer relationships.
- Enhanced Productivity
Well-lit parking structures and buildings can reduce the likelihood of errors and safety issues. For example, workers who have better lighting experience a lower risk of dropping and mishandling an object or work tool.
- Reduced Environmental Impact
Since LED lights last longer, they reduce the amount of waste that goes into landfills. The Organic Consumers Association reported that fluorescent lamps disposed of in U.S. landfills create enough mercury waste to pollute almost every body of water in North America.
