LED Lighting in Commercial Retrofits

LED lighting retrofit commercial buildings

LED lighting retrofits are increasingly popular in warehouses and commercial facilities as part of energy retrofit projects.

LED lighting is increasingly popping up in warehouses and commercial facilities as part of energy retrofit projects, even though they are often thought to be too costly for commercial buildings.

Energy use remains a significant cost for buildings and facility managers, so lighting retrofits are a great way to manage and control energy costs.

“Energy efficiency retrofits can produce big savings for commercial building owners with little upfront costs.”

A great example would be Atlas Box, a Massachusetts-based manufacturing company. They recently embarked on a two-year retrofit project for installing lighting controls and LED lighting systems.

Induction Lighting Sees New Life

Induction lighting offers a long life, and can reduce energy use up to 60% compared to HPS.

While induction lighting technology has been around for quite some time, it is now enjoying renewed popularity for its energy efficiency. Induction is a form of fluorescent technology that uses magnets instead of electrodes.

The benefits offered make it an ideal solution for interior applications such as high-ceiling warehouses, industrial buildings, cafeterias, gymnasiums, and cold storage.

Since induction is not significantly influenced by ambient temperature, it is also well suited for hard to reach applications like tunnels, bridges, roadways, outdoor areas, and security fixtures such as those in parking garages.

In many cases, the high efficacy of induction lighting can offer a payback in maintenance savings that can offset the initial cost of the system. Retrofits of existing fixtures are also available with induction bulbs and ballasts that can significantly reduce upfront costs of lighting upgrades.

Benefits include:

  • Long life of 100,000 hours
  • Reduces 60% energy use compared to HPS
  • CRI 84 – provides a crisp, white light
  • High reliability – instant hot & cold start-up and re-start
