In our industry, technology is constantly evolving by creating newer and better equipment. Whether it’s a brighter bulb, a more energy efficient transformer, or it’s an entirely new design that brings out the life of your landscape, the lighting world is ever changing. We often get calls from people who have had a company come out in the past and install their system with halogen lights. While this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it’s not the best, which is why we offer lighting retrofit as one of our services.
What is Lighting Retrofit?
When you’ve got an entirely functional lighting system but you want to get a little more out of it, we have this process to come out and replace your pre-existing halogen light bulbs with higher value LED lights. Regardless of your lighting project, LEDs are guaranteed to not only improve the quality of your system, but improve the sustainability as well. A visual upgrade from halogen to LEDs is a marked improvement, and you will never want to go back.
What are the Benefits?
When it comes to upgrading your system, there are a few points that you should take into consideration when deciding to make the switch:
- How much is it currently costing you to run your system?
- Would you light to reduce energy usage?
- What will the affect be on my building value?
- Are pollution reduction and the Green lifestyle important for you?
(If you’re a business, you can even take it a step further and look for incentives from the utility providers, or reducing your operating costs)
Each one of these questions is directly related to retrofitting, and the answers are simple. The upgrade from halogen to LED light bulbs in your landscape lighting system can dramatically reduce the cost you spend monthly. This is due in large part to the increased energy efficiency of LED. In addition, there are fewer replacements needed throughout the lifetime of your system, so you’re saving money on maintenance costs. Your home and/or business values will improve because the system is more capable, and the prospective buyer will enjoy the more efficient system. All of these create the green lifestyle, and can ultimately help the pollution reduction in your area.
If you’re looking to improve all aspects of your landscape lighting equipment, or are looking for something new to spice up your yard, give us a call and see how we can help bring your yard to life with LED lights.
