Green Signs recently updated their wall sign from neon lighting to LED lighting. Converting your neon sign to LED lighting not only extends the life of your sign, but make it brighter and uses a lot less electricity, while burning cool to the touch. Ask yourself why should I have LED lighting in place of Neon or fluorescent lamps. The answers are quite enlightening…….#Green Signs

LED lighting can lower your costs due to lower electric consumption of up to 70%.
LED lighting has a greater longevity. They are more reliable and last longer – up to 100,000 hours comparable to approximately only 30,000 hours for Neon.
LED lighting has a lower maintenance cost as well. It can be replaced within one service trip comparing to neon that has to be repaired offsite. LED power supplies are about half the cost of neon transformers.
LEDs are extremely durable. Neon glass is very fragile and can break very easily.
LEDs are also considered a “Green” product and environmentally friendly.
LED’s have a secondary power of 12 volts, which is less prone to fire hazards.

 

LED’s operate well in cold weather, illuminating brightly and consistently. Neon does not like cold weather and the brightness drops dramatically when the temperature drops below 35 degrees.

The photos show the process of retrofitting the channel letters to provide a more cost efficient and better lighting sign.
