LED Retrofit

LED retrofit lamps offer an instant upgrade from incandescent, compact fluorescent and halogen lamps, fitting straight into existing fittings. Flick the switch and as well as instant light you get major reduction in energy costs plus the maintenance and replacement savings that come with a lifetime up to 25x longer than incandescent lamps.

Alps place a major role in Return on investment (ROI)

We make ROI quicker by our expert suggestion and reduce the investment cost to the minimum so that our customers feel productive towards the value of money spend

we stand different from others in LED Retrofits as we consider only lamps to be replaced with LED in 90% of the cases where the customer does not lose the body of the earlier fittings used

alps understands the complication in disposing the CFL which is hazardous to the environment and give our valuable suggestion to the clients to dispose safely

Hence forth we take at most care in pricing, quality and safety for retrofits.

Installation

Installation of LED while caring of retrofit is major challenge as we need to fix in accordance to the existing light fitting at take care aesthetic feel of the fixture and fix the LED at Lower price better quality

LED vs Fluorescent Lights

1. LED Replacement Bulbs are 50% More Efficient

So not only do you get more light from a LED replacement bulb, they use less wattage. Our LED replacement bulbs only use 18 Watts vs 40 watts with T8 making the LED 50% more efficient.

2. LED Is a Directional Light Source

The LED replacement bulbs emits light at a 120-degree pattern vs the 360-degree pattern given off by T8 fluorescent bulbs. In this case, only 30% of the light given off by the t8 fluorescent is actually hitting the intended target. This means you are not using all available light because the fluorescent bulb is also lighting the fixture. That’s why fluorescent fixtures are brighter with reflectors.

3. LED Transfer Light vs. Heat

A LED fixture uses its energy to produce light. Most lighting sources including fluorescent use heat to generate light which is why traditional incandescent, metal halide and fluorescent are losing favor with property owners.

4. LED Still Give Off Light at End-Of- Life

A fluorescent bulb at the end of its life is very simple to spot, because it is DEAD, nothing left. A T8 bulb is considered end-of- life at 60% of its light output, which equates to roughly 14,400 hours. LED replacement bulbs on the other hand, calculate the end of life at 70% which is approximately 50,000 hours. In order to keep up with LED, you will have to replace the T8 bulbs 3.5 times.

5. LED Replacement Bulbs Have No Mercury

One of the most important differences lies in the fact that there is no Mercury or Glass Content with LED lighting. In the State of Washington alone, over 10 Million lamps are disposed of in landfills each year. Those 10 Million lamps hold roughly 400 lbs of toxic Mercury waste that gets deposited each year. Washington State estimates that only 2 out of 10 bulbs are effectively recycled.

6. LED Does Not Give Off UV

LED replacement bulbs do not emit any light in the non-visible light spectrum (UV). UV/IR light causes colors to fade in fabrics, signage, while also being the leading cause for eye strain and eye fatigue. Fluorescent T8 bulbs emit UV/IR light.

7. LED Makes Air Conditioning More Efficient

LED fixtures contribute little to none in regards to heat gain in a room or air conditioned space. The LED generate less heat. Less heat means that the Air Conditioning system does not have to work as hard. This is vitally important if you are doing a new build or upgrade as you may be able to utilize smaller A/C systems to heat the same area.

8. LED Provides 70% More Light

The beam angle of the LED replacement bulb is 110 degrees. This means that all of the light generated by the LED bulb is focused in the 110-degree area. The T8 bulb on the other has a beam angle of 360 degrees. That means the majority of the light generated by the T8 bulb is going out the sides and top of bulb, which does not benefit the intended target.

Advantages

1. Higher Return on Investment

Common misconceptions of retrofitting are the perceived costly expenditures. However, this couldn’t be farther from the truth! According to The Department of Energy, LED lights consume 75% less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs. Due to the decrease in energy consumption your facility is guaranteed lower utility bills and overhead expenses. Your capital investment will quickly be met and provide higher returns in the long run.

2. Less Maintenance

Lighting maintenance is time consuming and takes staff members away from more important facility tasks. Another area of concern when replacing light bulbs is employee safety. The risk of falling is ever present when a repairman climbs a ladder to service your facility lights. Since LEDs last 25 times longer than traditional lights, bulbs will require fewer maintenance repairs, allow employees to focus on other to-dos, and minimize safety hazards.

3. Improved Sales

If you are considering an LED retrofit for your B2C business, such as a car dealership, LED lighting can give you a boost in sales. According to the National Lighting Bureau, improved lighting can enhance displays and give customers the extra push they need to purchase. Lighting color can also have an interesting impact on sales. For example, warm colors in your facility can create a feeling of familiarity, which can help to foster employee and customer relationships.

4. Enhanced Productivity

Your employees are the backbone of your business. Their workplace environment, productivity, and overall happiness can be greatly impacted by your facility lighting. To productivity consider the impact of proper lighting. Well-lit workstations can reduce the likelihood of errors and safety issues. For example, workers who have better lighting experience a lower risk of dropping and mishandling an object or work tool.

5. Reduced Environmental Impact

Compared to traditional bulbs, LED lights have a lower impact on the environment. Since LED lights last longer, they reduce the amount of waste that goes into landfills. The Organic Consumers Association reported that fluorescent lamps disposed of in U.S. landfills create enough mercury waste to pollute almost every body of water in North America. Switching to LEDs will eliminate your post consumer waste and lower harmful mercury deposits.
Whether your facility is a warehouse, commercial building, or auto dealership, you could benefit from an LED retrofit. From lower maintenance to enhanced productivity, LED’s are an option for any company wanting to save. However, the advantages a lighting retrofit would provide your business are not limited to the benefits previously listed. To truly experience the full impact reach out to your lighting provider to examine your facility’s unique needs.
