Does an LED lighting retrofit really give me good savings?

The short answer is: Yes. After the initial few years of repaying that investment, you’re typically going to pocket significant savings every month. LED lights take relatively little power, and they can last more than 11 years even when used 12 hours a day. You’re not going to spend much on maintenance anymore.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are commercial electrical code updates?

Commercial electrical code updates fall under the National Electrical Codes (NEC), which are updated every three years. These are standards on the safe installation of electrical systems. Sometimes national codes differ from local commercial codes, so make sure your electrician knows them both well.

How do electrical code updates affect my business?

Failing to keep up with electrical code updates affect commercial buildings in ways that include:

  • Electrical systems failing
  • Increased risk of electrical fires
  • Power surges that disrupt your electronic data and equipment
  • Loss of revenues from power outages

What incentives are there in South Carolina to undertake a retrofit project?

There are federal and state incentives and rebates for commercial properties that undertake a retrofit project. Your power company may also offer incentives for retrofitting, so make sure to contact them. One useful resource for exploring what incentive programs might exist is the DSIRE database, maintained by the NC Clean Energy Technology Center. Narrow down the results by zip code, your business sector, and more.

Can you rewire and install any electrical equipment?

Rytec Electric can rewire and install any electrical equipment, including:

  • Appliances
  • Wiring for large renovations or new constructions
  • Basement wiring
  • Pools, spas and hot tubs
  • Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
  • Outlets and switches

What is electrical retrofitting?

Electrical retrofitting is essentially the process of updating current electrical systems in place, like your electrical panel and wiring or lights. Retrofitting brings a building up to current code, improves its energy consumption rates, and makes it safer as a whole, among other benefits.

How do I know if my property needs a retrofit?

The age of your property can be used as an indicator of whether it needs a retrofit. Having an electrical safety inspection will tell you for sure if it’s time or not, and there will be actionable steps outlined for you to take to begin the process, as well.

Does retrofitting my lighting systems really add building value?

Yes, retrofitting your lighting will add value to your property. Remember, your savings aren’t just in how much less you’re paying for the lights themselves. Fluorescent lights produce more heat, which puts more strain on your HVAC system, for example. An initially large investment can add significant value to your property.
