What is a lighting retrofit?

A lighting retrofit is the practice of replacing components in the system with counterparts that make it use energy more efficiently. A lighting upgrade is any strategy that reduces the system’s energy use. Energy savings are realized over time that can be significant enough to not only pay for the new equipment, but produce a return on investment.

Why should I consider retrofitting?

With lighting accounting for up to 40% of a building’s total electrical cost, it’s easy to justify and afford a lighting retrofit project. The following are benefits of retrofitting your current lighting systems:

  • Significantly reduce energy use
  • Increase worker productivity
  • HVAC savings
  • Improve quality control
  • Increase light levels
  • Reduce liability
  • Enhance light quality
  • Environmental impact
  • Reduce maintenance costs
  • Improve Safety

How does retrofit lighting reduce lighting?

To reduce energy consumption, we can either reduce the wattage or reduce the hours of operation. Input wattage can be reduced by replacing lamps and ballasts with more energy-efficient counterparts or outright removal of lamps and ballasts. The hours of operation can be reduced using sophisticated controls and other methods.

Lighting Retrofits Reviews

“Jared from Elcon showed up on time and walked through the house with me, listening to what had to be done and explained clearly how it would be handled. He was professional and performed the services requested with no further guidance or input from us. This is an older house being renovated and I plan to use them again next month as the project continues. Also the office staff is very responsive and friendly.”
