Over the years, fluorescent and neon lights have been top choices for exterior lighting solutions. While those solutions are still available today, LED alternatives have started to take over the market by a storm. If your business is still making do with a dated signage bulb configuration, we highly recommend making the upgrade to an LED retrofit. Should you decide to do so, these are the many benefits you can expect!
Increased Energy Efficiency
LED bulbs are incredibly energy efficient. They use about 75% less energy than incandescent alternatives, which you will surely notice in your monthly energy bills.
Sometimes, older lightbulb solutions take a few minutes to illuminate fully after initially being switched on. Not LED bulbs! You can expect full illumination the moment your signage is turned on each day.
Are you tired of switching out bulbs all the time? LED bulbs can last up to 25 times longer than incandescent alternatives. Don’t be surprised if your LED bulbs last multiple years!
LED bulbs do not contain any harmful toxins, which we cannot say for older lighting alternatives. Fluorescent bulbs, for example, contain mercury. When the time comes to dispose of these bulbs, you have to do so knowing the risks of chemical contamination. On the other hand, that is not a risk associated with LED bulbs.
LED bulbs are more expensive upfront than most alternatives, but the up-front cost is absolutely worth it. The ultra-high energy efficiency combined with the durability of these bulbs means your investment will quickly pay for itself.
LED bulbs run at low temperatures and low voltage. That means the risk of a fire starting due to overheating is incredibly low.
LED bulbs sound great, but they might seem like a massive, costly upgrade as well. Luckily, that’s not the case! LED retrofits are a fast upgrade that we can make in as little time as one afternoon! After that, you’ll be all set to reap the rewards of your new investment.
