Retrofitting is often done during renovations or when upgrading a space to improve aesthetic and/or energy efficiency. Existing fixtures that are in good working order can have the traditional lighting replaced with and LED counterpart. Many settings like Schools, Offices, Retail and Medical facilities currently use fluorescent tube lighting, which can be retrofitted with an LED tube. Switch Lighting recommends bypassing the ballast in these traditional fixtures, which reduces the power consumption and minimizes additional components that could fail.
Design & Studies
As a business owner many decisions can be assisted by a pros and cons list. The comparison between retrofitting an existing fixture or installing a new fixture has its own positive and negative options. Retrofitting is often the more cost-effective measure, in the short term that is, with the up-front costs being lower. However, it’s important to take into consideration the age and condition of the existing fixture prior to installing a retrofit option. If the fixture fails in less time than the replacement product, it’s best to replace the entire fixture initially. New Fixtures can also offer a better aesthetic impression, so if the idea is to improve the space’s overall appearance, this may be the better option.
