LED has revolutionized the illuminated lighting game. Retrofitting neon tubes and fluorescent bulbs is performance-enhancing, saving on energy and maintenance costs. An LED retrofit means you don’t have to start over with a new illuminated sign; you can simply convert your old sign with modern LED lighting.
Neon signs have a unique aesthetic that you don’t want to lose. Fortunately, innovation in LED technology allows you to reap the benefits of LED lighting without losing the visual effect of your original neon sign.
The bright and vibrant colors of neon lighting can easily be achieved with modern LEDs. LEDs are typically brighter than neon and seen from greater distances. An LED light is also easier to see in the sunlight, increasing visibility in the daytime and at night.
Another major difference is the material. The glass neon tubes are vulnerable by nature, especially in an outdoor environment. LED lights are much more capable of toughing out the Colorado winters.
The cost-efficiency of LED retrofitting is perhaps the biggest draw for retailers and business owners. LED lights require less maintenance and energy. Additionally, LED lights have a longer lifespan than neon, sometimes outshining neon and fluorescent signs by thousands of hours. All of these benefits add up to big savings over time.
A professional sign installer and technician should perform an LED retrofit. There are multiple electrical components and vulnerable materials to handle. We make sure your LED retrofit is done safely and efficiently.
