The 4′ LED T8 Tube – Ballast Compatible is one of the top choices of most consumers simply because of its many advantages in efficiency, affordability, and reduced maintenance.
For so long, many businesses went with the old T12 fluorescent tube lights because they provided good output and coverage, and were inexpensive to purchase. Later, the T8 offered more in terms of energy savings and businesses started to switch out. Now, the LED T8 offers and even more significant energy savings option with easy installation.
The ballast compatible lights, or Type A LED tubes, come with their own driver that allows the lights to work with existing fluorescent ballasts. Just plug in directly and they are good to go.
Before planning to retrofit your old fluorescent lamp, make sure to identify what type is compatible for you. Contact one of our electricians if you are unsure, or learn more below.
What is the LED T8 lamp used for?
In the past, people have used fluorescent lamps because of their good lighting quality, longer lifespan, and cost effectiveness. Now, LED T8 lamps are widely used to replace fluorescent lamps in most commercial establishments, business centers, and residential communities. Many of our clients have used these lights in schools, hospitals, retail spaces, and office spaces.
What are the benefits of LED T8 Lamps?
The 4′ Ballast Compatible LED T8 Tube lights have numerous benefits that can help sway your customer to transition to LED. While the initial cost may be higher than older options, the savings pay off in the long-term.
One of the benefits is that it produces a higher quality light. The lamp gives off 1800 lumens, a color temperature of 5000k, and has a color-rendering index of 80. This gives the closest to daylight conditions as possible. This means that employees will be comfortable with uniform lighting and no eye strain. Customers will be secure and confident and products will be highlighted and featured under bright and accommodating light.
The T8 lamp also has an increased lifespan with 50,000 hours representing a significant increase over fluorescent technology. Now your customers will not have to climb ladders every few months to change out lights or service maintenance calls for flickering or slow turn-ons. With 30% better efficiency of 150lm/w compared to fluorescent lamps, these T8 lights are energy savers and environmentally friendly.
The LED T8 lamp is recognized with a UL mark that signifies its safety for consumers as well as a DLC listed mark for performance. These certifications make them eligible for energy rebates where available. We can assist with these rebates and we also offer a 5-year limited warranty which adds to the assurance that you are receiving a high-quality product. If you are planning a retrofitting project soon, consider these benefits of LED T8 lamps.
