How to Change Fluorescent Exit Lights to LED Lighting |
For safety reasons, exit lights must remain illuminated 24/7. For this reason an efficient miniature fluorescent bulb has been the bulb of choice for many exit sign applications. With the advent of new LED, or light-emitting diode, technology, however, bulbs can last up to 25 years without having to be changed, and they only use a little more than 1 watt of electricity in the process. Retrofitting any exit light with an LED bulb will reduce lighting costs over time
Instructions 1 Remove the cover of your exit light and determine which fixture is in place. An incandescent fixture will have a screw-in base, and a fluorescent fixture will have a PL bayonet-type base.
2 Screw in an LED exit light bulb into an incandescent fixture by turning it in a clockwise rotation. Depending on the size of the base, many LED exit lights come with adapters that can be screwed onto the bulb first, and then easily screwed into the base.
3 Push in a PL base bayonet LED bulb into a fluorescent fixture. Grasp the bulb firmly and press directly into the fluorescent base until there is an audible "click." The click will let you know the bulb is seated correctly and is properly in place.
