Induction Retrofits: It's Time for Longer-Lasting Lights

It never ceases to amaze us just how much money can go into simply replacing light bulbs in a business environment. For starters, there are the product costs that are associated with simply buying enough conventional bulbs to keep your business illuminated. And then it's time to consider how much money has to be paid out to maintenance staff to actually replace the bulbs. This viscous cycle seems like it never stops. Of course, there are smarter ways to replace those traditional bulbs. By using induction retrofits, you can start using bulbs that have a proven track record for lasting a lot longer than conventional bulbs.

Why Conventional Bulbs Burn Out So Quickly

Without going into too many technical details, the number one reason that conventional bulbs burn out so quickly has to do with their dependence on electrodes, or filaments. This particular element of a conventional bulb can only last for so many hours before it simply burns out. When that happens, it's time to fork out more money to replace the bulb. However, businesses that replace those conventional bulbs using induction retrofits don't have to worry about frequent bulb burnout. That's because induction lights don't use a filament, so the bulbs burn for a longer time. In the best case scenario induction retrofits can last up to 5 times longer than a conventional bulb.

Since induction lights last so much longer there's less money spent on replacement bulbs and less money put out for maintenance overhead. It's little wonder that so many business owners have totally switched over their lighting fixtures to exclusively use induction lights to keep costs down. After all, at the end of the day, a successful business owner is one that recognizes the value of products that last longer.
