The need for companies to retrofit LED lights isn’t as common as it once was, but it’s still the best option for many companies. When LED lighting experts survey your premises they will be able to establish the best solution for your particular circumstances. They will be able to establish the costs and savings you will make with different types of install. If you’re not sure whether it’s right for you, or even what it is, then check out our quick reference guide below.

What Is Retrofitting?

Simply put, it’s when we upgrade your existing fixtures to take LED bulbs without physically changing the fixture itself.

Why Do People Retrofit LED Lights?

There can be various reasons. For some companies there lighting fixtures are part of a design scheme, and swapping them for LED fixtures would be detrimental to the overall aesthetic of the workplace. Other companies retrofit to try to save money on the install and maximise their return on investment (ROI).

Even with retrofit LED lights customers still benefit from the better lighting, substantial savings, and being more environmentally friendly. They still get to make many of the same choices as a customer having a new install, selecting their preferred brightness and shade of light.

We look at all our customers on a case-by-case basis, and always tell them what is best for their environment based on their priorities, and without compromising the light levels.

Why Wouldn’t I Retrofit LED Lights?

There can be several reasons a company chooses a completely new install over retrofitting. Sometime the existing lighting fixtures are so worn that it isn’t viable to continue to use them with LED bulbs. As the industry has continued to evolve and LED lighting grows in popularity, the cost of new fixtures is coming down. This means retrofitting doesn’t always provide as big a saving on your capital outlay as it once did.

There can also be reasons specific to your business that we have to factor in. For example, if you need your fixture to be resistant to moisture, we can’t guarantee an old fixture that has been adapted will perform as well as a new fixture.

In Conclusion

Retrofitting LED lights will always have a place in the industry. It may not be required as much as it once was, but when all your circumstances are pointing towards a retrofit LED solution as your best option, then a professional company will always put your interests first and provide a plan that works for your business.
