Parking Lot Lights

Why Should I Replace My Metal Halide Parking Lot Lights?

If you have a parking lot full of Metal Halide fixtures, then it might be time to replace them. At Sign Effex, we have had success retrofitting inefficient Metal Halide parking lot lights with new state-of-the-art energy efficient LED (Light Emitting Diodes) fixtures. With energy efficient LED fixtures, you can reduce annual energy expenses as well as annual maintenance expenses.

The drain caused by the Metal Halide fixtures used in your parking lot may be easy to overlook. Increases in your utility bill due to lights that aren’t energy efficient are done in small increments. Metal Halide lights also need to be replaced more often than LED fixtures, raising their cost.

Retrofitting your lights to LED lights can have tangible benefits to your organization, no matter what type of business you run. These benefits include:

  • Improving the overall look of your parking lot
  • Saving money
  • Providing higher quality lighting
  • And more!

When considering retrofitting your Metal Halide lights with LED fixtures, LED lights provide numerous benefits over Metal Halide lights, including their warm-up period. LED lights will respond instantaneously when you turn them on or off, while Metal Halide lights can take 15-30 minutes to warm up. LED lights are easier to dim, while dimming Metal Halide lights may cause them to expire sooner. Furthermore, Metal Halide lights emit light for 360 degrees while LED lights emit light for 180 degrees. Since light is usually desired around a specific area, LED lights’ directional lighting is an advantage.
