Here are some common questions we receive about Charlotte LED outdoor lighting upgrades
Will I have to change all my outdoor lighting fixtures?
Not necessarily. Most traditional outdoor lighting systems, such as halogen and incandescent can easily be converted to LED. To determine if your system qualifies, one of our outdoor lighting professionals needs to inspect it and if it is deemed fit to undergo the conversion, you can start enjoying the many benefits of LED outdoor lighting. We can usually retro-fit about 95% of our lighting and we can retro-fit our competitors lighting in most cases following a thorough inspection.
How much will an LED outdoor lighting upgrade cost?
If considering a conversion or upgrade to your current system, on average, it will cost 3-4 times what our Annual Maintenance Program costs. We now recommend investing in LED due to many traditional outdoor lighting bulbs being unavailable after January 1, 2020. Much of the cost of moving ahead with an upgrade or conversion will be recouped through the energy savings, bulb replacement and maintenance costs you will have saved during that time. Also keep in mind the “green” benefits of converting to LED outdoor lighting. It is hard to put a price tag on the benefits of reducing your carbon footprint because these choices help the environment and all of us in the long run.

Will my outdoor lighting transformer or timer have to be changed?
No. When we come to retrofit a system, our trained installers will be sure to check the condition of not only your fixtures, but also your wire, transformer and timer, leaving you with what feels like a brand new system.
How long does an LED bulb last?
The life of an LED bulb can be between 30,000 and 50,000 hours saving you in light replacement and maintenance. This is 10-15 times longer than the average bulb life, of 4,000 hours with halogen.
LED bulbs outlive traditional bulbs by 10 to 15 times
How much energy savings can I expect with LED outdoor lighting?
Your total savings is dependent on the size of the system and time it is running. On average, a system of 25 lights or more that runs from dusk-dawn each day could save you an estimated $15-$20 per month in energy savings. Over the course of 3 – 5 years, this amount represents a substantial savings.
