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:
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.
No matter how urgent any electrical repairs seem, it’s never okay to attempt to handle them on your own. Trying to take care of electrical problems without professional training is extremely dangerous. If you or someone else isn’t hurt during your attempt, there’s still a chance that you’ve left something undone that poses a huge risk to you, your home, or your family. In fact, faulty electrical wiring is the number one cause of house fires in the United States, according to the National Fire Protection Agency. So in order to make sure that your home is safe, always rely on a professional for any electrical services.
Circuit breakers that keep tripping, a flickering light on the back porch, or an exhaust fan that just won’t work properly—all of these are common problems homeowners face that have something to do with their electrical systems. But figuring out where the problem is stemming from can take a lot of work. Our OT Electric technicians will find out exactly what’s causing the problem, and what other problem may be happening—or beginning to happen—for the same reasons. Then we’ll nip them in the bud.
