Sign gets new lights
Electrician Harvey Sanders recently changed 400 light bulbs on Marion National Bank’s time and temperature sign.
“I changed out about 100 on each side,” Sanders said.
The new LED bulbs are brighter and more energy efficient than old incandescent bulbs, he said. However, even with the added efficiency, the constant change between time and temperature can be hard on the bulbs. Don Noller of Marion National Bank said a Trans-Lux sign service worker told him there are only two signs like it left in the area.
