LED retrofitting your workspace can be a great option to save your business money. This simple process can help modernize your workspace and dramatically increase your energy efficiency. These answers to some common questions about LED retrofitting can help you better understand the process and why it is likely a great option for your company.
1. What is Retrofitting?
Retrofitting is the process of taking your old energy inefficient fluorescent bulbs, ballasts, brackets and sockets and replacing them with new LEDs. With a specialty LED company, this is a simple process that can save your business a lot of money.
2. Is There a Difference Between Retrofitting and Replacing?
Yes. A full replacement is more involved and will generally end up costing more. Retrofitting tries to maintain as much of the old hardware as possible so you get a larger ROI, faster.
3. How Complicated Is the Process?
While it’s not recommended someone without experience attempt a retrofit, this is a relatively straightforward job for a professional electrician. An experienced professional can make sure the job is done right and you won’t have to waste any more time or money to repeat the process.
4. Will the New LEDs Be Dimmable?
This is a very common question with a simple answer: yes. Dimming is a great feature that not only adds versatility to your space, but can also save you more money. Just request this feature in your consultation and it’s as good as done.
5. Can I Keep the Old Fixtures?
In most cases, yes. This is the spirit of the retrofitting process. When possible, preexisting fixtures will be maintained while the bulbs and the internal components (sockets, brackets and ballasts) are upgraded to accommodate the LEDs.
