LED Retrofits

Commercial And Industrial LED Retrofits

Compared to conventional incandescent and fluorescent lighting, LEDs provide superior energy efficiency, particularly for commercial applications. However, replacing a large-scale lighting system and fixtures can be costly for business owners. Fortunately, there’s a solution: LED retrofits.

LED retrofits allow you to upgrade your current lighting system to LED without the expense and hassle of replacing every single fixture. Contact us today to speak to a member of our team about your project requirements.

What Is An LED Retrofit?

As LED technology progresses, more property owners are considering upgrading their conventional lighting systems to LED lights. While there are significant long-term cost benefits to upgrading to LED lighting, a complete upgrade could be costly if you have a large property with a lot of lighting.

An LED retrofit is a way to upgrade your lighting system to use LED bulbs without replacing the existing fixtures. By converting your existing fixtures to accept LED bulbs, we are able to deliver the same high-quality LED lighting at a fraction of the price of a complete upgrade.

While we can retrofit most modern light fixtures, you should call us first to discuss your project requirements so we can assess your project.

What Types of Lights Can Be Retrofitted With LEDs?

LED retrofitting is a cost-effective and practical solution for upgrading large-scale commercial lighting systems. Due to the popularity of LED lighting, LED retrofit kits exist for just about any type of commercial light we might need to convert. Here are some of the most common commercial lighting fixtures we have retrofitted with LEDs.

LED light strip

Strip Light Fixtures

Also known as “shop lights,” LED strip light fixtures produce a focused light source suitable for illuminating work areas. We frequently convert old T5, T8, and T12 strip fixtures and lamps using LED strip light retrofits with permanently fixed lifetime LEDs or replaceable LED tubes.

Troffer Lights / Recessed Lights

Troffer lights, also known as recessed lighting, allow seamless LED integration without sacrificing aesthetics. We can easily retrofit old troffer lights with new LEDs, reducing power costs and energy usage.

Tube Lighting

LED tubes are the most popular and affordable choice for commercial retrofitting. We remove the long, cylindrical fluorescent bulbs and replace them with energy-efficient LED tubes. It’s fast, inexpensive, and allows you to retain your existing fixtures while keeping costs down and boosting your building’s energy efficiency.

Vapor-Tight Fixtures

Vapor-tight LEDs have impermeable seals that prevent weather, dust, and moisture damage, making them highly durable. These lights are ideal for manufacturing warehouses, commercial farms, parking lots, etc. We can convert your existing vaport-tight fixutres to utilize LED lighting.

High-Bay Lighting

Our high-bay lighting LED retrofit kits are perfect for improving the light quality in your building and cutting down energy costs. You can upgrade your metal halide and HPS bay lights without the expense of replacing every fixture.

Canopy Lights

Canopy lights are durable, high-powered lights that are commonly used in indoor and outdoor applications such as gas stations and parking garages. Converting your existing canopy lights to energy-saving LEDs is fast and easy with an LED retrofit.

LED exit signs

Emergency & Exit Signs

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that emergency and exit signs in America consume approximately 30 to 35 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) of power every year. By retrofitting your emergency signs with LED lights, you can dramatically cut your energy usage while remaining compliant with safety regulations and building codes.

Post-Top Lights

High-intensity discharge (HID) post-top lights typically contain high-pressure sodium, metal halide, or mercury vapor light components and cost between $6,000 and $16,000 annually in electricity costs. LED post-top lights are used for roadway and street lighting, security and floodlighting, area lighting, and parking lot lighting. LED retrofits are ideal for post-top lights, providing superior light output with minimal operational and maintenance costs.

The Benefits Of Converting To LED Lights

In addition to producing a more pleasant light, LEDs offer several benefits to property owners. With rising energy costs, the smartest move you can make is to invest in technology that will reduce your overhead and operational costs. LED lighting is energy-efficient, low-maintenance, eco-friendly, and provides far superior illumination. Here are some of the key benefits you can expect after retrofitting your lighting fixtures with LED lights.


Improved Energy Efficiency and Cost Savings

The drastic improvement in energy efficiency and reduction in electricity bills are the primary benefits of switching from traditional lighting sources to LEDs. For example, LED lights can cut energy usage by up to 75% compared to incandescent lighting.

In addition to the substantial savings on electricity bills, opting for retrofit LEDs saves even more money by eliminating the need to purchase and install new fixtures. While some business owners choose to replace their fixtures completely, it’s not mandatory for most LED retrofits.

Reduced Maintenance

LED lights can last up to 100,000 hours before needing to be replaced. That’s 25 to 30 times longer than a traditional incandescent bulb. Suppose you own a building with 100 incandescent bulbs that have a lifespan of 750 hours.

If your lights are on for eight hours per day, you’d have to replace the bulbs every three to four months on average. If a five-pack of incandescent bulbs costs approximately $6, that’s $480 a year in lightbulb replacements or $16,000 in the same lifespan as an LED light.

LEDs Produce Little To No Heat

Incandescent bulbs release about 90% of their energy as heat. The interior filament temperature for a 100-watt bulb is about 4,600°F, with an exterior temperature varying between 150°F and 250°F. Not only will this heat lead to higher costs for cooling your space, the heat can also degrade wiring and insulation over time leading to more maintenance costs.

LED lighting emits little to no heat, reducing the need to run your HVAC system as heavily and extending the lifespan of the electrical components surrounding the light.

LEDs Are Environmentally Friendly

In addition to the environmental benefits gained from a 75% reduction in energy usage, the materials necessary to produce LEDs are much more eco-friendly and less harmful than alternative light systems. Fluorescent and metal halide bulbs are made with mercury, deeming them a hazardous material that requires specialized disposal.

LEDs aren’t produced with toxic chemicals and are considered the safest alternative for the environment and the people who work under them.
