Answer: 
Both T8 and T12 lamps use a G13 base; however, a T12 ballast will shorten the life a T8 lamp. Due to the US putting a ban on standard (40 watt) T12 lamps -- high efficiency ones are hard to come by but still exist -- some ballasts were made T8 & T12 compliant. Also, shopping tip, it is sometimes cheaper to buy a new light fixture with a ballast then a new ballast alone.

Answer: 
No, the T8 and T12 should not be interchanged. The ballasts work differently. The T12 is an older technology. The T8 is a newer, more efficient technology mandated by the government.

Answer: 
No they are NOT interchangable. T8 bulbs physically fit in the older T12 fixtures and they will light, but the ballasts in T12 and T8 fixtures are different. The older magnetic ballast found in most T12 fixtures overdrives the T8 bulbs. This results in shorter bulb and ballast life and increased energy consumption.
Do not mix-n-match T8/T12 bulbs and fixtures.

Answer: 
No.
If you put T12 bulbs in a T8 fixture, you'll burn out the ballast. If you put T8 bulbs in a T12 fixture, you'll burn out the bulbs very quickly. Its cheaper in the long run to buy the proper bulbs for the fixture you want to place them in.

Answer: 
I know that in the newer lights you can interchange the T8 and the T12's. We were changing some of the ballasts as well, the new ballasts and the new bulbs were brighter. We noticed in a few of the lights where we did not change the ballast, the bulbs worked fine, but took a few minutes to totally warm up. Overall better light and lower wattage.

Hello, Thank you for asking. The description provided like Cool White, Daylight are the interpretation of the color temperature of, in this case, a linear Fluorescent bulb. Kelvin is the unit of measure for Color Temperature used to indicate the overall color of the light produced from a source. 6500K (Kelvin) is interpreted as daylight. The color temperature of a light emitter refers to the temperature to which one would have to heat a “blackbody” source to produce light of similar overall appearance. A low color temperature implies warmer color (seen in the spectrum as more yellow/red) light while high color temperature implies a cooler light (seen in the spectrum as more blue color). Therefore 4100K is a cool white, 6500K daylight, and 2700K Soft White. Read Less

Answer: 
The daylight bulb is a much brighter light level than the standard lumen bulb. That's the one I chose to use when I installed the lighting in my barn. These bulbs are rated at 6500K output instead of the 5600K output that the regular bulb has. That may seem to be a little difference, but it actually makes a very big difference when you turn on the lamps.

15 Amp X 120 Volts = 1800 watts
1800 / 32 = 56 (.25)
Assuming 4 lamps per fixture 14 fixtures. Best to have 10% under rated capacity, or 12 fixtures.

The max watts on a 15 amp circuit is 15X120 = 1800 watts. The max continuous load should not exceed 80%, which is 12 amps or 1440 watts. Be sure to add in the wattage draw of the ballast.

this works , also check the bulb holders for cracks or damage - they are replaceable and Homedepot does sell most type. You may want to consider upgrading to LED many electric companies have programs that will pick up some of the cost , I just had my Synagogue done and the power company paid 80% of the project - Now that is cool.

Answer: 
I’m not familiar with the ballast so I cannot answer. The T8 lamp will work on any ANSI ballast. Not sure what “well” means but our ballast should be ANSI approved so no issues with any T8 lamps working on that ballast.
