Business Have Old Exterior Lighting? 2 Benefits On Renovating Your Old Lighting Using Retrofit

Retrofit is changing your currently lighting bulbs and fixtures with new lighting. If your business currently uses metal HID fixtures, you will find many benefits by renovating this lighting with new lighting. Below are two of these benefits so you can get started on this project.

Improve Light Levels

The first thing you will notice is that your lights will be more appealing. This is no matter if you choose to use fluorescent lighting or LED lighting.  Your customers and employees will be able to see much better inside your business because the light levels are improved. For example, you can install these lights inside your warehouse, distribution center, or offices.

You can also retrofit lighting on signs you use outside your building. This will also improve the light levels on your signs and exterior lighting. This is important because this is one of the first things customers see when they drive or walk by your business.

A sign company can help you design signs for your business if you want to replace the ones that you currently use. Doing this along with retrofitting the lighting will help the signs really stand out.

Save Money

Retrofit lighting will save you money as your electric bill will be lower each month. This is because fluorescent or LED lights use less energy.

You have the option to purchase motion sensor lights for the exterior lighting using florescent or LEDs. This will you can save money because the lights will only come on if someone is near them and then will go off after a certain amount of time.

You can also have motion sensor lights retrofitted inside your business, such as in your warehouse. This way the lights will go off when no one is there. You will also not have to worry about turning the lights on and off yourself.

Of course, do not use motion sensor lights for your signs. You want these lights to stay on all the time, during business hours. You may even want to keep them on when you are closed so people can see when they are walking or driving by your business afterhours. If you do not want to do this, however, the lighting company can install a timer that will turn the lights off after a certain amount of time and automatically turn them on at dusk.

Talk with a lighting company that will retrofit the lights in your company for you. They will explain to you how the process works and can answer any questions you may have. For more information, contact companies like Cardinal Sign Corporation.
