Retro-Fit and Save.
Change the guts -
Fluorescent Ballasts or LED Kits will provide the low energy, long life
solutions to lighting in special cases. Light bulbs made with LEDs offer clean pure white light and great colors!
Halo LED lighting units have several great features
. They give excellent light quality, consume 75% less energy compared
to a 65W BR30 incandescent lamp. You can use them in new construction or existing applications. They use less than 15 watts.
600 lumen output. Projected 50,000 hour life. Greater than 40 lumens per watt. They're dimmable, designed to
last, basically maintenance free, and include a three year limited warranty|
If you have new construction, you can save money and lower energy costs from the beginning with a dedicated Title
24 Compliant housing. Install LED module with trim in existing housing.|
LED retro-fit lighting units are perfect for low maintenance public spaces. Restaurants, hotels and night-time businesses can lower
electric bills and maintenance costs by using the LED downlight. Lighting units last about eleven years based on twelve hours use per
day. You can change one incandescent lamp to a LED recessed downlight and you will save hundreds of dollars over the life of the
fixture. LED lighting unit consumes 75% less energy than a 65 watt BR30 incandescent lamp. Over 70% of the first light output is
maintained after 50,000 hours of operation. They last five times longer than a fluorescent or fifty times longer than
an incandescent source.
T12 to T8 Lamp & Ballast Retrofits
For a quick return on your investment, replacing T12 lamps and ballasts with high
efficiency electronic ballasts and T8 lamps is the smart choice. In many cases, this is the easiest upgrade since the T8 lamps and
ballasts fit into the same fixture.
Lighting retrofits can provide energy savings greater than 40% while improving the quality
of the lighting. These quality improvements include quiet operation, improved color rendering, and a reduction in HVAC costs due to less
heat being generated by the lighting system.
4-Lamp F34T12 Lamps and magnetic ballast
Power consumption: 148 Watts
4-Lamp F32T8 Lamp with High Efficiency ballast
Power consumption: 96 Watts – 52 Watt savings (35% reduction)
Light Level: Increase by 3% to 12% depending on lamp used
Alternate Retrofit Options:
4-Lamp F28T8 Energy Saving Lamp with High Efficiency ballast
Power consumption: 84 Watts – 64 Watt savings (43% reduction)
Light Level: Decreases by 3% - Improved color quality may provide better perceived lighting.
Energy Savings Equals Dollars
Based upon the annual operating hours and utility rate, the energy savings can be used to calculate the operating cost savings:
- Annual Operating Hours
- Utility rate ($/Kwh)
- Energy Savings per fixture (Watts)
- Conversion from W to KW
Annual Cost savings per fixture
- x $0.12
- x 64
- ÷ 1,000
Multiply this value by the number of fixtures in the facility to determine the total cost savings.
The chart below identifies some of the savings potential with T12 to T8 retrofit, keeping the number of lamps the same:
