3 Signs You’re Ready for an LED Retrofit

Whether it’s indoor or outdoor, residential or commercial use, LED retrofits are a quick, cost-effective, and convenient way to achieve brighter light at a fraction of the cost.

It has become more important than ever to find energy-efficient bulbs that fit your home and commercial lighting needs. Compared to traditional options, such as fluorescent bulbs, LEDs are proving to be a much more cost-effective and efficient alternative. 

This is because LED lighting comes with many benefits, such as: 

  • Less energy usage
  • Longer bulb life
  • Greater variety and colour options
  • Greater durability, making them an excellent option for outdoor lighting and signage
  • Reduced light wastage

3 Signs It’s Time for an LED Retrofit 

Are you looking for a more energy efficient and affordable lighting option for your home or office? An LED retrofit allows you to switch to LED bulbs and enjoy great savings, without the high installation costs and disruptions to your business/home. 

Here are some signs that it might be time for an LED retrofit: 

1. You’re Using Fluorescent or Incandescent Bulbs 

If you are currently using incandescent or fluorescent bulbs, then it’s a no brainer: you should strongly consider switching to LEDs. This is because LEDs use a faction of the energy of traditional bulbs and can last up to 20 times longer than incandescent bulbs. 

In addition to this, LEDs are also compatible with dimmers and motion sensors, further reducing your energy consumption in areas such as warehouses or garages. 

Pro Tip: Consider How Long Your Lights Are On For

If your lights are on for more than a few hours a day, it makes sense to switch to LEDs immediately. However, if you only turn on your bulbs as needed, then it might be a good idea to wait for the bulbs to burn out before making the switch. Ultimately, the earlier you switch, the earlier your savings will begin. 


2. You Want to Improve the Aesthetics of Your Space 

LEDs are becoming an increasingly popular lighting option, not just for their ability to help you save on energy and costs, but also because of their aesthetic advantages, such as: 

  • They turn on instantly and don’t flicker 

  • Enhanced colour temperature 

  • LEDs are much more versatile and colours can be adjusted to suit your unique needs 

Remember: Lighting is not just an overhead expense for a store. It is as much a factor in driving business as a professional logo or promotional campaign, and high quality LED lights can play a huge role in the success of your company. 


3. You’re Tired of High Maintenance Costs 

Since LEDs are semiconductors that give off light, they don’t burn out as often as traditional lighting. On average, LEDs have a lifespan of approximately 25,000 hours, compared to incandescent lights (2000 hours) and fluorescent lights (less than 10,000 hours). 

This means that when you switch to LED lights, it will result in fewer replacements and saving precious resources that go into purchasing and replacing burnt out bulbs. As a result, your business can cut its operational cost by saving on maintenance fees, in addition to great energy savings.
