Are you looking to upgrade the current lighting system in your home or office? Investing in an LED retrofit is a great way to lower your costs & increase the energy efficiency of your space.

Are you feeling unsatisfied with your current home lighting? Investing in an LED retrofit is an affordable way of upgrading your existing system so you can enjoy a brighter, more energy efficient home without having to replace any of your fixtures.

Replacing your old lights with LED bulbs will have many benefits for your home because LED lights:

  • Are more energy efficient, allowing you to save on utility bills
  • Light up instantly and don’t need time to warm up
  • Give off virtually no UV emissions, unlike some fluorescent lights
  • Don’t contain any harmful materials and they’re 100% recyclable

4 Ways Switching to LED Light Bulbs Can Save You Money

Do you want to switch to LED lights in your home, but you’re worried about the cost? An LED retrofit is an efficient and affordable way to upgrade your lighting to more energy-efficient bulbs and allows you to upgrade your home lighting without replacing your fixtures.

While there are naturally some costs associated with an LED retrofit, in the long run, this transition will result in significant energy savings.

Here are 4 ways switching to LED light bulbs will save you money:

 

1. LED Lights Are More Energy Efficient

Compared to traditional incandescent, fluorescent, or halogen lights, LED light bulbs use approximately 50% less electricity. This results in substantial energy cost-savings, especially if the lights in your home are switched on for prolonged periods of time.

LED’s Directional Lighting Ability Saves You Money

Unlike conventional bulbs, LEDs can aim light in a specific direction. This capability makes them less likely to waste energy, saving you money.

2. They Have a Longer Life Span

One of the biggest cost advantages of investing in LED lighting is that these bulbs boast a much longer life span and so will not require frequent repair or replacement.

  • LED Life Expectancy: 30,000 - 50,000 hours
  • Fluorescent Bulb Life Expectancy: 8,000 - 10,000 hours
  • Traditional Incandescent Bulb Life Expectancy: 1,000 hours

In addition to this, LEDs will never fail suddenly or burn out. They dim over time, which makes them much more convenient than traditional lighting products.

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT LED LIGHTS FOR YOUR NEEDS

 

3. LEDs Are Great For Outdoor Lighting

LEDs are very durable and they’re built with sturdy components. This makes them an excellent outdoor lighting option because they can withstand even the harshest conditions and are resistant to:

  • Vibrations
  • External impacts
  • Shock

Their durability means that you don’t have to worry about additional lighting costs such as frequent maintenance, repairs, and replacements.

4. LEDs Are Unaffected By Rapid Cycling

When switched on and off, traditional light bulbs have a shorter life expectancy. However, LEDs are unaffected by rapid cycling which makes them well suited for daylight sensors or even commercial flashing light displays.

“​Hey Nigel, just thought I would let you know our electricity averaged around $630/month before the upgrade, compared with the September bill that we just got of only $370 – much better savings than we thought. The condo board members are extremely pleased!”​
