Are you struggling to optimize energy and cost with your business’ fluorescent signs? Well, it’s time you switch to LED signs! You can retrofit fluorescent signage to LED or replace existing fluorescent fixtures with new LEDs. 

You can choose either of the options based on your requirements, budget, and the location of your fixtures. 

Regardless of your choice, you will optimize energy and operational costs by a significant margin. And, with LED lights, you can operate your commercial digital signage 24 hours a day!

Why You Should Change Your Fluorescent Signage to LED

Here are five reasons why it’s time to retire fluorescent signs:

  1. They give out very little light compared to the energy consumed.
  2. They are comprised of fragile glass tubes.
  3. They are available in limited gas and glass color combinations.
  4. You can only use one fluorescent light color at a time.
  5. They come with high maintenance costs.

Benefits of LED Lighting for Businesses

LED lighting is one of the most energy-saving signage options for businesses. It uses almost 75% less energy than fluorescent bulbs and lasts 25 times longer. A good-quality LED bulb can last over 22,000 hours or almost three years of round-the-clock use.

Here are some more reasons why you should retrofit your fluorescent sign to LED:

  • LEDs provide an incredible ROI for your sign budget.
  • LEDs are not affected by cold temperatures. Fluorescent lamps lose almost 50% of their light output during winter. 
  • LEDs don’t burn out like fluorescent lights.
  • LEDs are mercury-free lights. Therefore, they are environmentally friendly and can be disposed of easily.
  • One fused fluorescent light is easily noticeable. This is not the case with LED lighting.

What’s New in the World of LED Lighting?

LED lighting is the future of lighting and signs, and the future is now. Worldwide usage of LEDs over 10 years would save over $1 trillion in energy expenses, diminish the need for almost a billion oil barrels, and greatly reduce carbon dioxide emissions. 

All these benefits of LED lighting make it a suitable replacement option for other expensive light sources. Also, using polarized light from LEDs could improve LED signs and computer displays and reduce the glare from car headlights.

How to Retrofit Your Fluorescent Signage to LED

Follow these steps to retrofit your fluorescent signage to LED:

  • Assess your existing fluorescent light configuration. There are two types of configurations — horizontal and vertical. So, you need to know which configuration to choose for replacing LED lighting.
  • Work with your signage partner to find the right LED lighting for your requirements.
  • Have your signage partner install it!
