How Investing in an LED Retrofit For Your Exterior Lighting Can Save You Money

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

LED Retrofitting


While there are some costs associated with an LED retrofit, the transition will result in significant energy savings over the long term. Investing in LED lights has many benefits, including:

1. LED Lights Use Less Electricity

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

Lower Electric Usage Due to Directional Lighting

Unlike conventional light bulbs, LED lights can aim light in a specific direction. This allows for reduced energy wastage, saving you money in the long run.


2. LED Light Have a Longer Life Span

One of the most significant benefits of investing in a LED retrofit is that LEDs have a much longer operational life so they won’t have to be repaired or replaced as often as more traditional bulbs.

LED Lifespan Comparison

  • LED Bulbs - Approximately 50,000 hours
  • Compact FLuorescent Bulbs - Approximately 10,000 hours
  • Traditional Incandescent Bulbs - Approximately 1,000 hours

Additional Advantage: LEDs don’t ‘burn out’ or fail suddenly, they merely dim over time, which is more convenient and hassle-free than traditional products.


3. LED Lights Can Withstand Harsh Conditions

One of the biggest advantages of LED lights is their durability. They are built with sturdy components and are highly rugged, able to withstand even the harshest conditions, making them an ideal choice for exterior lighting.

What this means: You don’t have to worry about additional lighting costs such as frequent repairs, replacements, or maintenance programs.


4. LED Lights 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 exterior lighting.
