by | Oct 27, 2017 | 0 comments |

Here at Action Services Group we define our success by the success of our customers. In today’s post, we would like to highlight one of America’s largest hardware stores and their T12 fluorescent to LED conversion. A company that has locations in thousands of communities around the United States. The hardware chain had a need to both reduce energy costs and reduce maintenance costs in their facilities. Below we will look at how they achieved this by working with Action Services Group on their T12 fluorescent to LED conversion project.

The Objective

As stated above the customer’s goals revolved around reducing the monthly energy costs and maintenance costs that it was spending throughout its stores. Working with True Value corporate office Action Services Group recommended a LED linear solution to replace the existing linear fluorescent lighting.

The Solution – T12 Fluorescent to LED Conversion

At this point Action Service Group came in to examine the facilities and collect lighting data. After a detailed analysis of the findings, Action Services Group put together a proposal that would meet the corporate requirements for energy reduction while simultaneously reducing maintenance costs. Specifically, Action Services Group offered a LED linear tube retrofit program. This replaced the existing outdated fluorescent lamps and ballasts, with new energy efficient LED direct wire linear tubes.

The Results of the T12 Fluorescent to LED Conversion

The results of the T12 fluorescent to LED conversion were dramatic both from an energy consumption and maintenance standpoint. Below are the granular details:

  1. An immediate reduction of maintenance costs estimated at $700+ annually for the next 5 years due to both the products rated life (50,000 hrs.) and their multi-year warranty.
  2. An immediate reduction of energy usage by 57% and an estimated $2,900+ annual utility cost savings based on the U.S. average retail price of electricity of $0.1032.
  3. An annual reduction of 36,700 lbs. of Greenhouse Gases emitted into the atmosphere a fundamental cause of the greenhouse effect.
