Electric signs are a great tool for catching the attention of passersby. Their lighting makes the sign easy to see. However, the lighting can also bring about some problems when it isn’t working properly. Here are three types of electric signs and common issues they can experience:

Fluorescent Signs

Fluorescent lighted sign issues usually have to do with it not lighting up properly. It could be not fully lit, flickering, or completely unlit. Fluorescent lights have a lifespan of about 12,000 hours or approximately three years. Eventually they will start to show signs of aging by not lighting up properly. Regular sign maintenance can catch these issues and get the bulbs replaced when necessary.

Neon Signs

Neon signs aren’t too common anymore, but there are still some in use. The neon in the sign could be burned out or broken if the sign flickers and then goes out after being turned on. If half of the sign is working, but the other part is dim or out, the gas might need to be repumped or the tube replaced. Many businesses are replacing neon signs with new LED signs.

LED Signs

LED lighting has an extremely long lifespan. They rarely have issues like an individual or string of LEDs going out. However, sometimes the power supply can fail and need repairs. While it might cost more upfront, LED lighted signage has fewer issues and lasts much longer than the other two options.

When electric signage starts failing, it can impact the business and their image to the public. People might assume the business is closed, or doesn’t take good care of its property.
