One of the best and easiest ways to save money in your facility is by reducing lighting energy costs. Convert old lighting fixtures into miniature money-saving centers. If the thought of a lighting conversion is daunting because of complicated re-wiring, think again. Check out these new easy conversions from Graybar.

LEDs last longer and provide more light with less electricity than standard incandescent sources. They even last longer than CFL and HID lamps, and unlike CFL and HID, they are easily dimmable. Like good fluorescent lamps, LEDs are available in a variety of color temperature options and all of the LED products featured here have a high Color Rendering Index (CRI) of 80 or 90.

One of these products just might be the easy answer to your tough downlighting challenge:


 Challenge: Keep it Simple

P Series LED Modules fit into existing 4”, 5” or 6” downlighting housings to replace 60 watt or 100 watt incandescents. This LED downlight is perfect for basic applications including wet locations. It’s as simple as screwing in a light bulb – with the added benefit of a fresh new integral white baffled trim.

 Challenge: Need a light with some tilt?

No problem. The LED Gimbal family with up to 35-degrees of tilt can replace 50 watt to 65 watt floods without a housing change! Simply remove the trim and high-wattage flood lamps from the existing 4”, 5” or 6” housing, and replace with this adjustable LED trim and lamp all in one! E26 screw-base adapter installs just like an ordinary light bulb. This product is even available with a variety of trim colors, including white, black, oil rubbed bronze, or brushed nickel. 

 Challenge: Bigger and Brighter

Replace large 2-lamp CFL and even HID downlights with the new RV Series from Acuity. In less than 5 minutes per fixture, reduce energy costs by up to 50% by using these high output LED replacements. Large fixtures in high ceilings are often a maintenance headache as well. These 50,000-hour replacements will not only be easy today, but will keep life easy for up to 10 years of maintenance free operation!

 Challenge: No Plenum, No Problem!

Install new Halo SLD Surface LED downlights anywhere you want it with only a standard junction box. This breakthrough technology looks like a downlight and performs like a traditional downlight without the requirement of a large housing above the ceiling. Now, with only a junction box, a downlight can be installed wherever you want it. It’s a cinch for retrofit, but also durable, lightweight and it can even be wall mounted or replace surface-mounted fixtures! The included adapters will allow this product to be installed in existing incandescent or compatible housings too, for an easy retrofit solution.

Since Graybar can provide big energy savings with easy retrofit options for all of your downlight applications, why not start replacing downlights today?
