Convert Your Auditorium Lights to LED

If you want to save energy costs in your auditorium, consider retrofitting your houselight system to LED. In addition to energy and utility savings, you can brighten your space and reduce maintenance costs.

When upgrading auditorium lighting, there are three basic LED retrofit options available:

  1. GOOD: LED Lamp replacements for existing fixtures with existing dimming.
    This is the most affordable option, but dimming results can vary, generally 10-20% dimming on the low end.
  2. BETTER: Fixture replacements with existing dimming.
    This option provides better dimming than LED lamp replacement, but it’s still not a precise of control as halogen lamps.
  3. BEST: Fixture replacement with digital control.
    This is the most precise control over dimming, but it’s also the highest cost, as extra wiring needs to be run in most cases.
