Colonial Electric Retrofits Buildings with LED Lighting
Property owners trust Colonial Electric to provide LED lighting upgrades in their homes and office buildings. We have been an industry leader in the area since 1970, and our team can complete a wide range of electrical services. Among our specialties are LED lighting upgrades. Home and office illumination have come a long way since the days when fluorescent lighting was the standard. Today’s lighting is more energy-efficient, brighter, and safer than its predecessors. However, replacing your light fixtures may not be as simple as exchanging one bulb for another. When the task becomes more complex, let Colonial Electric retrofit your home or office with LED lighting. We are capable of handling projects of all scopes and sizes, and our team can accommodate any schedule. Call us today to learn about the benefits of converting fluorescent light fixtures to LED.
What to Consider Before LED Lighting Upgrades
Upgrading your home or office building with LED lighting may not be a small undertaking, so it is critical to evaluate a wide array of factors – many of which relate to the current state of your lighting fixtures. Colonial Electric’s team of expert technicians can help you assess your fluorescent lighting to devise a plan regarding your LED lighting upgrades. There are two ways to accomplish your goals of increased energy efficiency, improved lighting, and enhanced safety. We can either retrofit your existing light fixtures with LED lighting or completely replace them. To make this decision, you must consider:
- Condition of existing fixtures – If your existing lighting fixtures are in fully-functional condition, it may be best to retrofit them with LED lighting.
- Desired features – If you want to have high-tech lighting options – such as the ability to dim, change colors, or connect to a network – replacing your current lighting is best.
- Maintenance – Neither retrofitted lighting fixtures nor new LED lights require much maintenance, but LED light fixtures may need to be replaced entirely when the LED reaches the end of its lifespan.
- Brightness – LED light fixtures offer much higher lumen outputs than LED retrofit options, which are limited by existing features.
Colonial Electric Offers Multiple Upgrade Options
Our lighting professionals can replace your home or office’s light fixtures or convert existing fluorescent lights to LED. We will work with you to determine which option is best for your facility and explain their differences clearly. Your choices include:
Colonial Electric will examine your existing lighting fixtures to assess any compatible conversion options with bulbs. By retrofitting your home or office with LED lighting, we will add something that was not part of its original design or construction. Therefore, we must convert fluorescent light fixtures to LED by using one of several approaches, such as:
- Replace fluorescent tubes with retrofit LED tubes
- Replace fluorescent tubes with magnetic LED strips
- Replace fixtures with LED panel lights
In some instances, it may be more cost-efficient and reliable to replace your existing light fixtures. We have the expertise to remove the lights you have in place in favor of LED lighting fixtures that will be more dependable and include more features than retrofitted LED lights.
Benefits of LED Lighting Upgrades
LED lighting upgrades have myriad benefits, but three shine brighter than the rest. Following an upgrade from Colonial Electric, you will experience immediate energy efficiency improvements. Studies have shown energy savings of more than 60% at commercial facilities, which can significantly bolster any company’s bottom line. Additionally, you will save even more money because of reduced maintenance costs. LED lighting fixtures have a lifespan of up to 50,000 usage hours, so you will rarely ever have to worry about parts and labor. And arguably the best benefit of all is enhanced lighting quality. LED lights produce a brighter, clearer light to illuminate your property.
