Lighting retrofits to save energy costs!
Lighting retrofits replace energy inefficient T12 lamps with
smaller, more energy efficient lamps like T8's or T5's.
By putting new, energy efficient components into your existing fixtures, you can save up to 50% on your facility's monthly utility bill.
By performing a retrofit to your existing lighting system, you'll get better light distribution at the work surface, which increases productivity, all while using a fraction of the energy.
Under today’s standards, many of the lighting systems in service are very energy inefficient. These days technology is available which provides the same amount, or more light, yet operates using 25%-60% less energy.
Most people are familiar with the old florescent lighting fixtures found in many office buildings. A lot of times they are dull, poorly lit fixtures with large, round, T12 lamps. These lamps are powered by old, magnetic ballasts which consume an over abundance of energy – most of which is wasted.
New, electronic ballasts are much more energy efficient than the magnetic ballasts. Some of them use only 25% as much energy as it’s magnetic predecessor. Though they use a fraction of the energy, they still provide enough power to provide your facility with equal or greater light levels than you current system is providing.
- Less energy used translates directly into lower utility bills from the electric company.
- This procedure not only provides better light and energy bills, it is also good for the environment.
