4 Cost Benefits of Investing in a Commercial LED Retrofit

Are you feeling unsatisfied with your exterior commercial lighting? An LED retrofit allows you to upgrade your current system so you can enjoy a brighter, more energy efficient commercial exterior without having to replace any of your existing fixtures.


Long Term vs Short Term Costs of an LED Retrofit

While there are some costs associated with an LED retrofit, the switch will result in significant energy savings for your business in the long term. Some of the great benefits of investing in LED lighting include:

1. Less Electricity Usage

Compared to traditional lighting products, such as incandescent, fluorescent, and halogen lights, LED products use 50% less electricity, resulting in significant energy cost-savings. This is especially important for businesses that keep their exterior lighting on for extended periods of time.


Unlike conventional lighting products, LED lights aim light in a specific direction. This allows for reduced energy wastage and saves your business money in the long run.

2. Longer Life Span

One of the greatest benefits of investing in LED lighting is that they have a much longer life span when compared to other types of bulbs. This means that they won’t need to be replaced or repaired as often.


  • LED Bulbs - 50,000 hours
  • Compact Fluorescent Bulbs: 10,000 hours
  • Incandescent Bulbs: 1,000 hours

In addition to their longer lifespan, LEDs won’t suddenly burn out or fail, they merely become dimmer over time. This makes them much more convenient and hassle-free compared to other types of bulbs.

3. Greater Durability

LEDs boast great durability. They are built with sturdy components, are highly rugged, and are able to withstand even the harshest conditions, making them an ideal choice for exterior lighting. This means that even through the most difficult weather, you won’t have to worry about additional lighting costs such as repairs or replacements.

4. LED Lights Can Be Turned On and Off Many Times

The more you turn on and off traditional light sources, the shorter their lifespans become. However, LEDs are unaffected by such rapid cycling. In addition to making them ideal for flashing light displays, this also makes LEDs well suited for exterior lighting.
