What benefit is in keeping an antiquated unneeded ballast?

Asked by Db March 19, 2021
2
Answers

One reason to keep the ballast would be ease, or maybe you might find the LEDs a tad too bright? At any rate....keeping the old ballast gives you the flexibility of switching back if nothing else. The only difference that if noticed is the LEDs have a tendency to flash once when you shut the switch off....not all the time though.

Will these LED tubes operate well in a fixture where the ballast seems to be malfunctioning as th...

Asked by Ben February 27, 2021

Answers

Hey Ben - If the ballast is malfunctioning and not operating traditional fluorescent lamps correctly then these LED tubes will in all likelihood not work properly. These LED tubes require a compatible and working ballast.

Will these replace F32T8 bulbs?

Asked by Ben February 15, 2021
2
Answers

Yes - these LED tubes will replace your conventional fluorescent F32T8 lamps provided the ballast in your fixture is a compatible instant start electronic ballast.

I bought this a few weeks ago and installed it my self. I didn’t realize the one I had wasn’t that bright until I turned the switch on, wow what a difference. I will need to get my duster out lol.

Do they work in cold weather?

Asked by nick October 7, 2020
2
Answers

These LED tube lights are rated to work in temps as low as -4 degrees Fahrenheit. The ballast in your fixture will also have a minimum start temp, however and this should be printed on the ballast label, but typically this should be similar to the temperature range for the tube light.

Do these bulbs have to use a ballast, or can they be wired direct?

Asked by Doc September 17, 2020

They are not compatible with instant start ballast as advertised.

These are a great replacement for the old fluorescent bulbs in my kitchen. While some people don't like operating room brightness, sometimes you need the daylight brightness that these give off when you are preparing a meal or cleaning. These are 6500K which gives off a white daylight as compared to the 3000K fluorescent bulbs that give off a yellowish cast. These are a great improvement in the laundry where there can never be enough light
