As a business owner, your eye is always on the bottom line. Is your electricity bill higher than you would like? If you aren’t using LED lights in your parking lot, one way you might be able to save costs is to convert your parking lot lights to an LED lighting system.
When you make the change to LED, you get an added bonus of not only seeing lower electricity costs, you also help patrons and guests feel safe as they walk to and from their vehicle.
How to Convert Parking Lot Lights to LEDs
Depending on the type of lights you currently have and the condition of the parts, some people choose to retrofit the LED bulb in the fixture that’s already in place. While this option might seem quicker and easier than installing an entirely new system, old parts aren’t always equipped to dissipate the heat generated by the LED light. Unfortunately, the heat buildup can shorten the life of the LED system or cause it to fail. In the long run you might spend more money than what you would have spent installing a new system.
Switching the old fixtures to attractive new LED fixtures that are designed to handle the LED bulbs is a good option that many people choose. With this choice you update your entire system. If you go this route, ask about rebates from the power companies and warranties. Many times you can take advantage of both.
