Upgrade EXIT signs to LED
EXIT signs run 24 hours a day so it is important that they be as efficient as possible. You can save $20 to $40 per year for each EXIT sign you upgrade. LED retrofit bulbs are available for less than $20 a pair, and LED EXIT signs are available for $35 and up. As well, LED lamps are warrantied for ten years, and expected to last much longer, greatly reducing how often you have to change bulbs.
New EXIT fixtures must use less than 5W per legend, or face, of the sign. Signs that have factory installed battery packs may use up to an additional 5W.
Retrofit bulbs and new EXIT signs are available at hardware and lighting stores.
