How do Induction Retrofits Work?

If you have been paying attention to the green lighting industry, you've more than likely noticed that there are some exciting, new lighting products that are being used to replace traditional light bulbs. These breakthrough lighting products are called induction lighting, and many companies and governmental institutions are on the fast track to retrofitting their traditional lights with induction lights. As people are hearing about the retrofits that are taking place, the question is often asked “How do induction retrofits work?”

Yes, “induction lighting retrofits” does sound like a very technical term, so it's no wonder that people are curious about just how these retrofits are taking place.

Is it expensive to replace old, traditional lighting products?

No, it's not. In fact, many organizations realize an almost immediate savings when they do a large scale replacement of all their traditional lights with induction lighting products. Yes, there is a cost associated, but  with the huge energy savings that is realized, the initial cost is quickly covered, and the organizations that use these lights continue to save money for years, as induction lights require less maintenance and allow for longer periods of time between replacements.

So, how do induction retrofits work?

This is the real beauty of induction retrofits – for most commercial or governmental lighting, a retrofit is as simple as replacing the traditional bulb with an induction light. Induction retrofits are just that – they are retrofit to work in the exact same kind of fixtures that used to house traditional bulbs. Street lamps, gas station canopies, parking lot lights, and many other types of commercial lighting can just as easily use these induction lights as they can traditional bulbs.

With money being saved, less energy being used and such easy replacements, it's no wonder that induction lights are making waves all over the world.
