LED Retrofits in Anaheim
Skilled Anaheim Commercial Electrician Standing By
When we retrofit your home with LED lights, our goal is to replace existing
lights with elevated technology in order to increase the energy efficiency
and the quality of light in the home or building. It can also help make
sure that lights and other devices operate on a safe voltage. The most
common LED retrofit is LED tubes, which involves removing any existing
fluorescent tubes and replacing them with LED tubes. This option is popular
because it allows you to reuse existing lighting features.
At Mako Electric, we know how critical LED retrofits can be when it comes
to increasing efficiency and can even increase property value. As an additional
benefit, LED lights use an average of 50% less energy than other forms
of lighting. For over two decades, we've been optimizing the lighting
in buiildings and providing our community with unparalleled eletrical
service experiences. Our community has come to rely on us for a high standard
of service, and that is exactly what we continue to provide.

What Type of LED Retrofit Do I Need?
4 Types of LED Retrofit
When you are choosing your LED retrofit, there are four main choices: Type
A, Type B, Type C, and Type A+B. Here at Mako Electric, our electricians
have experience tackling an array of these systems, safely removing the
failed device and replacing it with the appropriate type and model. It
is necessary to have a full understanding of the different types of LED
retrofits in order to choose the best option for you and your needs, and
we are happy to help with that decision.
The types of LED retrofits we can install and repair in Anaheim homes and
commercial buildings include:
A UL Type A tube is designed with an internal driver that allows the tube
to operate directly from a linear fluorescent ballast. A Type A tube is
designed to work with T12, T8, and T5 ballasts. The difference between
these shapes is simply in their wattage, shape, and diameter. The "T"
in T5 says that the bulb is tubular shaped, while the "5" indicates
that it is five eigths of an inch in diameter. The other sizes, T8 and
T12, are larger, but T12 is an older, less efficient method.
A UL Type B tube is similar to a Type A tube in the sense that it operates
with an internal driver. What sets it apart is the fact that a Type B
tube is powered directly from the main voltage supplied to the existing
LFL fixture, which requires a skilled electrician to make sure that the
in-line fuse sockets are installed perfectly. Type B tends to be more
efficient than Type A and does not involve power loss. It is of the upmost
importance to adhere to proper installation protocol when it comes to
these fixtures in order to make the process as safe as possible. Doing
so will prevent a potentially hazardous exposure to the main voltage.
A UL Type C operates with a remote driver to power the LED linear tube
insted of an integrated driver. It is similar to a UL Type B in the sense
that it involves electrical modification to the existing furniture, but
the low-voltage outputs are connected to sockets rather than line voltage.
When we perform this kind of installation, it is necessary to remove any
existing tubes and ballasts and replace existing sockets if necessary.
All of this needs to be done with precision, which you can count on our
team to provide. With this type of system, our clients can rest assured
that they will experience excellent system efficacy, optimal system compatibility,
and top-notch performance.
It's important to note that LED retrofits can be in contact with dangerous
amounts of electricity and should not be replaced or tampered with by
employees or residents. Call a seasoned
