LED Lighting Retrofits
Updated: Aug 4
Long lasting, highly efficient lighting upgrades that enhance building performance and occupant well-being.
Getting to know LED lighting
LED lighting upgrades are a low-cost, high impact opportunity to improve the performance of a building's lighting system, reduce energy use, enhance occupant comfort, and save money.
How do LED lights work?
Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are a long lasting and compact type of light source that uses efficient technology to emit light in a specific direction, reducing the need for reflectors and diffusers while generating very little waste heat. LEDs have several advantages over traditional incandescent and fluorescent lighting, including greater energy savings, longer lifespans, greater durability, and equal or greater light quality and color range.
A high performance LED lighting upgrade is among the most cost-effective means for building owners to lower their energy use, cut operating costs, and reduce their carbon footprints. LED upgrades also enhance lighting quality and aesthetics, which can improve occupant wellbeing and increase property values and rents.
LED upgrades can be completed at varying levels of complexity and cost, from replacing individual components (such as lamps, ballasts, and sensors), to relighting or redesigning entire spaces. Typically, the more comprehensive the retrofit, the greater the improvements to comfort, aesthetics, functionality, and payback.
