How Investing in an LED Retrofit Can Save You Money

Are you unhappy with your current home lighting situation? LED retrofitting allows you to upgrade your existing system so that you can have a brighter, more energy-efficient home without having to replace any fixtures.


Naturally, there are some costs associated with an LED retrofit, but in the long run, this transition will result in significant energy savings over the long-term. LED lights:

1. Are More Energy-efficient

LED lights use about 50% less electricity than traditional incandescent, fluorescent and halogen options, resulting in substantial energy cost-savings, especially for homes with lights that are on for extended periods of time.

Directional Lighting

Unlike conventional bulbs, LEDs are able to aim light in a specific direction. This lighting capability allows them to reduce wasted energy, saving you money in the long run.

2. Have a Longer Life Span

One of the biggest advantages of investing in an LED retrofit is that LEDs have a much longer operational life, so will not have to be replaced as often as traditional bulbs.

Life-expectancy comparison
LED Bulbs: 
30,000-50,000 hours
Compact Fluorescent Bulbs: 8,000-10,000 hours
Traditional Incandescent Bulb: 1,000 hours

In addition, LEDs don’t ‘burn out’ or fail suddenly, they merely dim over time, which is more convenient and hassle-free than traditional bulbs.

3. Can Withstand Harsh Conditions

LEDs are extremely durable and built with sturdy components and are highly rugged, able to withstand even the harshest conditions. They are resistant to:

  • Shock
  • Vibrations
  • External impacts

This means you won’t have to worry about additional lighting costs such as frequent repairs, replacements or maintenance programs.

4. Can Be Turned On/Off Many Times

Traditional light sources tend to have shorter lifespans the more they are switched on and off. LEDs, on the other hand, are unaffected by rapid cycling. In addition to flashing light displays, this capability makes LEDs well suited for daylight sensors.

“​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!”​
