Retrofitting LED Lights Can Pay Off In Your C-store

Anthony Optimax Retrofit

As a convenience store owner, if there was a change you could make to increase merchandise sales, lower your electric bill, reduce maintenance costs, and be environmentally responsible would you make the change? The opportunity to do just that is here with the advent of LED Retrofit Kits. These kits replace the existent fluorescent lighting on your glass door merchandising walk-in cooler and freezer with 4’, 5’ or 6’ long LED light strips.

LED lighting provides a 68 to 85% energy savings over the fluorescent lights typically used in coolers and freezers. LEDs use only 15 watts for a 5’ model and 18 watts for 6’. They also produce less heat than a fluorescent light, which will lessen the load on your refrigeration system. But if energy savings was the only advantage, adoption of LEDs wouldn’t be near where it is today. The real difference is the attractive quality of the light it gives off. LEDs give your products a beckoning glow and more uniform illumination than fluorescent.  You can choose between lights that give off a neutral or slight red or blue hue. Conventional wisdom suggests that the more appealing the product presentation, the more likely a customer is to take notice and purchase it.

LED light not only shines brighter than fluorescent, it also offers other benefits. With LED lights you won’t get lamp burn-out, cold start failures or flicker. LEDs work very well in the cold and last over 50,000 hours in a cooler and almost 100,000 hours in a freezer. Additionally, they don’t give off the heat of a florescent light, which will decrease the load on your compressor.

Replacement LEDs are often more expensive than their fluorescent counterparts. However, with all the benefits of LED retrofitting, it can prove to be a smart investment that will pay for itself many times over. A couple LED retrofit options are the Anthony Optimax Pro and the Anthony StarFire.c-store lighting

      You will need to replace the light fixture. Your old fixture is not compatible with the new LED lighting.

    Steve, U.S. Cooler does not manufacture these kits. You would have to get in touch with Schott or Anthony Doors to become a dealer of theirs.
