LED retrofitting is a method of upgrading the existing lighting installation in an office or residential building to LED fixtures. The process involves installing LED fixtures and removing the old lighting system.

In this article we will explore the advantages of Led Retrofit led lighting and the cases of uses that might apply.


Advantages of retrofit led lighting

Cost effective

Retrofit led lighting is one of the most cost effective ways to upgrade old lighting systems. It can reduce electricity consumption, maintenance costs, and replacement costs by up to 90%.

Safe choice

They are a better choice for safety because they produce less heat. This means that they are safer to use in areas where there is a risk of fire or even just the risk of getting burned.


LEDs also provide more light than traditional bulbs. This means that it is easier to see things in the dark and it’s also safer to drive when there are LEDs on the roads.

Environment friendly

One of the top benefits of LED retrofitting is the drastically lowered energy consumption. This is a highly positive change for the environment, as it reduces emissions and air pollution.

LEDs are more efficient than incandescent and fluorescent lights, which means they require less energy to produce the same amount of light.

This translates to lower electricity bills and lower environmental impact.


Case of uses

The first thing to do is to find out what fixtures you have that could be retrofitted. When you do this, you can then determine the type of fixture that will work best with your existing setup and also what kind of LED light bulb would be best for your needs.

Retrofitting fixtures is a great way to save money on new fixtures. It can also give you more options in terms of what types of bulbs are available in the LED lighting marketplace.

When retrofitting your fixtures, you will also have to change the dimmer switches to an LED specific version.

Dimmers are a type of electrical switch that controls the brightness of an electric light. They work by reducing the voltage supplied to a light bulb, thereby decreasing its brightness. In most cases, you will have to replace your current dimmers with LED specific versions when retrofitting your fixtures with LEDs.


Types of retrofit led lighting


LEDs are not just for lighting. They are also used in retrofitting and fixtures. There are several types of these retrofits and fixtures that are available for offices,facilities,warehouses or retail stores.

1- The recessed Downlight fixture which is used to replace fluorescent lights with LEDs to save on energy costs and maintenance costs.

2-The second type is the LED strip light which can be installed in a ceiling or wall to provide a uniform light distribution or can be used as accent lighting.

3- The LED panel light which can be mounted on ceilings or walls and has high energy efficiency and low maintenance cost.
