Retrofitting is the addition of a new lighting technology, component or accessory onto existing equipment. In essence, you’re converting your legacy lighting system to LED. With LED retrofitting, most existing equipment is retained and only the light resource is replaced. LED retrofits are selected by our team to perfectly fit your existing fixture exterior housing.


Upgrading lamps or lighting fixtures with LED retrofits increases energy efficiency and decreases lighting pollution and carbon emissions. LED lighting is an economical option for interior and exterior lighting. Over time, these energy savings, coupled with rebates from utility companies, often offset the cost of an LED retrofit lighting upgrade. The Spark Lighting team has years of experience obtaining rebates and incentives on behalf of our customers.

Energy Efficiency

Replacing your current lighting fixtures with LED can save up to 80 percent compared to your current lighting energy costs. You can typically finance the replacement of your legacy lighting with the cost savings you will receive from retrofitting your facility with modern LED lighting.

Reduced Maintenance Cost

Legacy lighting creates maintenance costs by requiring frequent lighting replacement which not only requires money spent on replacement lamps and fixtures, but also on the labor needed to replace them. A traditional incandescent bulb has a lifespan of about 1,000 hours. LEDs, meanwhile, last for up to 100,000 hours. Do the math and you’ll find yourself replacing an incandescent bulb 50 times before you’d have to replace an LED bulb. Halogen, mercury vapor, fluorescent, metal halide and high- and low-pressure sodium light bulbs, may last longer than an incandescent bulb, but they’re still nowhere close to the lifespan of an LED.

Improved Lighting Quality

Light emitted from LEDs is a higher quality light than traditional lighting solutions. LED Lighting provides excellent color temperature options, a high color rendering index and an unbeatable foot-candle level over traditional lighting options.

LED lighting is available in both cool white LED and warm white LED options. We will work with you to provide LED lighting that provides your space with the color temperature you’re looking for.

Additionally, LED lighting offers a great color rendering index, revealing the actual color of objects as compared to a natural light source. Finally, they have a higher level of foot candle light, meaning LEDs distribute more light over the same target area. LEDs omit light directionally (only 180 degrees) instead of most traditional lighting which emits light a full 360 degrees resulting in a loss of light.

Improved Lighting Aesthetics

Natural color temperatures combined with the elimination of lighting flickers create a more pleasant workspace or commercial environment. This change will make your space more inviting to employees and customers alike.

Reduced Air Pollution

Consuming less energy directly results in the reduced use of coal and natural gas which generates the energy you use. The process of creating energy from coal and natural gas emit nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide and carbon dioxide. Accordingly, reducing the consumption of energy results in reduced occurrence of air pollution.

Who Should Have an LED Retrofitting?

Retrofits are ideal for industrial properties that have a satisfactory lighting system and layout but lack efficiency and performance. Older lighting systems that use metal halide, T12, T8 and T5s use outdated lighting technology that consumer energy, wattage and maintenance. By replacing old fixtures with new LED fixtures, your lighting system becomes more energy efficient, environmentally friendly and increases performance.
