Neon Sign Repairs and LED Conversions New Jersey
Do you have an old neon sign in need of repair? If so, now could be the perfect time to convert your neon sign to LED lighting. Here at Signarama Piscataway NJ, we specialize in switching energy guzzling neon illuminated channel letter signs and lightbox signs to brighter, more energy efficient LED lighting.
While neon used to be the illumination source of choice for a wide range of illuminated signage in years past, sign illumination technology has come along leaps and bounds in recent years and LED lighting now provides a much more cost-effective alternative.
Compared to LED lighting, neon lighting is not very energy efficient and consumes a very high voltage. By converting your current neon sign to LED lighting technology, it will result in a much more durable sign which will require less long term maintenance. Not to mention your sign will shine brighter than it’s ever been!
Make the switch from neon to LED today and benefit from lower energy costs and decreased maintenance. If you’re located in New Jersey or New York, contact our sign experts today for more information on our neon to LED sign conversions services and book your complimentary site visits. We look forward to working with you!
What are the benefits of converting a neon-illuminated sign to LED lighting?
While there will always be a special place in our heart for neon signs (you do know we can also help you with creating custom neon signs too right?), as a lighting source for a box sign or channel letter sign, LED lighting will provide you with many benefits over neon lighting…
- Save on Energy Costs: Nobody likes to waste money, but if your current sign is illuminated using neon lighting, you’re doing just that! By converting your neon sign to LED you can save approximately 70% on your signs energy consumption.
- LED Lighting is More Durable: LED illumination modules are extremely durable and weather resistant and can handle any vibrations from the outside environment whereas neon signs can be quite fragile.
- LED Signs Require Less Maintenance: Not only will an LED illuminated sign save you money on your energy bills, but they also require less maintenance and are easier to install, providing you with a more durable sign in the long-term.
- LED Lighting is Safer: LED signs require a 12-volt power source compared to neon, which can sometimes require as much as 15,000 volts which can cause a fire risk.
- LED Signs Cause Less Environmental Impact: The gases used in neon signs are bad for the environment. LED illumination provides much less of an environmental impact.
- LED Illumination is Brighter: Compared to neon, LED lighting is much less susceptible to changes in the weather. When the temperature drops (you gotta love those New Jersey and New York winters!) the brightness of your neon sign will also drop dramatically.
How much will it cost to convert my neon sign to LED?

Is it easy to convert my neon sign to LED?
The first step in converting your neon sign to LED is to remove the current sign so we can easily access and remove the neon tubing, old wiring, and existing transformers. Once removed, we will then clean the interior and exterior of your sign before installing the new LED lighting modules and wiring. Your sign will then be re-installed and hooked back up to the main power supply.
Can you repair neon signs?
We can, but unfortunately, not all neon signs are created equal. If your current neon sign was produced using lower quality components, more often than not, it would require replacement rather than repair.
If your neon sign was constructed using quality components then there will typically be a problem with the transformer, the cabling, and connections, or the electrodes/glass. We have the tools and experience to help diagnose the problem and provide you with the most cost-effective neon sign repair without having to remake the whole neon sign.
