Most retail stores still use the outdated fluorescent lighting, but don’t know that LEDS can bring a better alternative.
There are several advantages when using LED lighting. Maintenance is less when using LED lights vs. fluorescent. The bulbs last much longer which means that you can forget about having poorly lit areas. Another advantage is that unlike fluorescent, LEDs do not fade and give you that mismatching color.
Having a well lit retail store is very important in order to give a good impression to customers. There are different types of lights which can help any store owner accomplish the lighting mood they are looking for. Changing from fluorescent fixtures to LEDs doesn’t mean you have to change out the entire fixture. There are many retrofit kits like the ones from Hykolity LED Lighting. These retrofit kits come with everything you need to make the install yourself. Some applications are easy as just replacing the bulbs, which just about anyone can do.
One of the best things about LED lighting is that the lighting mood can be controlled with a light dimmer. Using a dimmer can be useful for those niche stores that require low lighting as part of their décor. The options for using LED lighting is ever growing with a number of applications. Product displays are another area that can strongly benefit from LEDs.
Retail stores can also benefit from not using as much energy as they would with fluorescent or halogen spot lights. One factor that is often not thought of is that amount of heat that certain lighting gives off. The heat given off from fluorescent or halogen can be a contributing factor to warmer temperatures inside the store, making the AC working harder.
These are just a few reasons as to why retail stores should have LED lighting. If you would like more information about converting your retail store to LED lighting please contact us for a free no obligation quote. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter for more tips and information.
