Bright lighting makes a business’ signage pop and can potentially be a great draw for customers. LED is a readily available source of fluorescent lighting, with such perks as instant illumination requiring no warm-up time, no UV radiation (unlike some fluorescent sources), and completely recyclable. LED retrofit is a safe, reliable, and efficient lighting option for modern business owners looking to make their exterior stand out.
Savings on Cost and Energy
LED lighting fixtures typically last longer than their traditional counterparts as there are no fragile wire filaments used within. LED can last between 4 to 40x longer than conventional bulbs. Maintenance costs are, therefore, significantly less than with conventional lighting. This alternative for illumination is also renowned for consuming substantially less energy, reducing cost and negative environmental impact. Monetary rebates are available for businesses looking to become more ecological and convert over to LED retrofit.
More Reliable Than Neon
Traditional neon fluorescent lighting has a classic vintage appeal and can be visually intriguing. However, the fact is that LED retrofit is a more dependable source of light. LED stands for “light-emitting diode” and is a semiconductor that puts off light in potentially unlimited ranges of color. On the other hand, Neon is produced by gas inside a glass tube with electrodes at either end and requires lots of high voltage electricity to charge the gas enough to give off light visible to the human eye. Neon’s colors are limited to the gas available and the make-up of the glass tubing, and usually, only one color can be used at once. The glass is also very fragile, and if a tiny breakage or crack occurs, the entire piece is rendered kaput. Maintenance for neon is quite costly overall and puts off little light considering the large amount of energy required for operation.
