Retrofitting: The Smarter Way For Your Business

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.

Retrofit vs New Fixtures: Which to Choose?

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.

The Future of Retrofitting LED Lights

The LED retrofit market is expected to record its highest compound annual growth rate by 2027, meaning the market for this type of product is set to explode in the coming years. Carbon footprint reduction, cost savings and decreased energy consumption are all major factors of why companies may decide to take action with their lighting. Retrofitting installations are less disruptive than full fixture overhauls, and provide the same lighting benefits.

Outdoor commercial LED lights offer very similar benefits to indoor LED lights, such as lower utility bills, reduced carbon emissions, less waste from the disposal of burnt-out bulbs and more savings.
