Considerations when installing LED retrofit lighting

Retrofitting LED lights into your property can be a great idea. Not only to LED’s use much less electricity, they also last longer too. In fact, they can last up to 42 times longer than incandescent bulbs and 13 times longer than halogen bulbs! So you’ll save money on your electricity bill, and on plain old bulbs and maintenance too.

What are the important considerations when installing LED retrofit lighting?

So what needs to be considered, when you think about LED retrofit lighting? Well, there are a number of things to think about, including:

  • New fixtures- for LED bulbs, you may need to install new fixtures throughout your property. While this might be more work than you imagined, in the long run it will be more efficient as you will have more choice from the range of bulbs available. Keeping your old fixtures can limit your choice, as not every LED bulb will be suitable for an old fixture. In addition, your dimmers will not work with LED bulbs, you will instead need to update your dimming switches too.
  • Commercial or domestic settings- if you are a Landlord looking for an update to your properties, or you own a business or company, there will be big differences in the retrofit process involved. You should get in touch with a professional team, like us here at Walker Electrical, to discuss your individual options.
