This includes schools, hospitals, warehouses, offices, and other industrial spaces. Limiting the amount of energy lost from lighting is just as simple as changing the lights.

The most common type of lamp found in these buildings are fluorescent T8 lights. By simply replacing them with T8 LED light bulbsyou can easily reduce energy usage and costs right along with it.
When looking to replace fluorescent lamps with their LED counterparts, the first thing to check is wattage. This cuts the energy being used from just the one fixture by more than half!
Imagine the savings possible after replacing them all. Next, do a comparison of lumens. While wattage measures the amount of energy being consumed, lumens s for the brightness of a bulb.
A T8 fluorescent that uses 32 watts of energy typically produces lumens of light. Additionally, T8 LED light bulbs have a lifetime rating of 50, hours, more than 3 times longer than 15, hour average lifespan of T8 fluorescent lights.
Also keep in mind the warranty period. Generally, most fluorescent tubes have a 2-year warranty. Their LED counterparts are warrantied for as much as 5 years after the date of purchase.
These models do just as the title suggests. Installing Ballast bypass LEDs is slightly more complicated, and a professional electrician should be contracted to do the job.
The existing ballast in the fixture will first need to be removed. These lamps work by using the voltage that flows directly to the socket.
All LED tubes come in either cool white or daylight color temperatures, matching the colors of the already installed lamps. T8 LED light bulbs allow for less energy use, greater energy savings, longer lamp life, and less maintenance.

They are manufactured to make the switch both seamless, and well worth it in the long run. Thanks for the info… LEDs are the best option when it comes to saving electricity.
We all should do our bit for the sake of environment. Switching to LEDs is the best thing you could do. Out of the two led options, which one will use less power.
I belive the bypass option will be more power saving. Do plug and play style reduce the same amount of energy as the ballast bypass?
How much of a draw is the ballast itself? Thanks, Dave.
