The sign outside your business is the first representation of your company, and in many cases, it’s the first impression customers get of your company. Having an old and worn sign with random burned out bulbs isn’t the best way to make a good first impression. One of the characteristics of quality signs & awnings for New England businesses is bright lighting to make the establishment stand out. If you’re ready to give your sign a fresh look, consider retrofit LEDs. These retrofit LEDs are different from regular LED light fixtures, since they can utilize existing light fixtures and sockets. Here are some of the other unique benefits they offer.
Improved Energy Efficiency, Reduced Service and Maintenance
Compared to traditional light bulbs, retrofit LEDs can consume on average 50% less energy, and sometimes up to 90% less energy. The cost savings over the course of a year or longer is significant for any business, so it is well worth the time to make the switch to retrofit LEDs. Most business owners agree retrofit LEDs are one of the best ways to get a return on a sign investment.
On a sign where regular light bulbs are used, when a single bulb goes out it will be very noticeable. With retrofit LED lighting, the bulbs will usually just get dimmer rather than go out completely, which will only be noticeable if you’re looking for flaws. This simply means you won’t have to spend as much time on sign repair and maintenance as you’ve done in the past. In fact, it’s not uncommon for retrofit LEDs to be illuminated for five years or more without needing any maintenance.
Brighter Lighting And Longer Lifespan
Most business owners get instant gratification with their LED retrofit sign because of the noticeable brighter lighting. And on top of that, retrofit LED lighting will turn on instantly rather than having to warm up like traditional lights tend to do. Business owners can usually get at least five years out of their retrofit LED sign, but many times it will be closer to ten years before any type of sign repair and maintenance is needed. With all of the other responsibilities business owners have to handle, this takes one more thing off of their plate.
Refresh Your Image Without Interrupting Business
From an aesthetic perspective, LED retrofit lighting can refresh your company’s image without altering it completely. And more importantly, you won’t have to interrupt normal business operations to perform the upgrade. Installing LED retrofit lighting is typically quick and easy for professionals to accomplish and you’ll quickly enjoy the benefits of your decision to refresh your image.
