An energy-efficient upgrade for linear fluorescents commonly found in commercial lighting fixtures is with the installation of T8 LED tubes. They require less maintenance, by boasting up to 50,000 hours of continuous burn time. Swapping out fluorescents with LED T8s is incredibly simple. As technology has evolved over the years, it has reduced the headache of upgrading to LED.
There are essential three types of LED t8 tube lights that are available, they include plug-and-play, direct wire, and hybrid. The easiest one to install is the plug-and-play, also known as ballast compatible or ballast dependent, these T8 lamps simply operate of the fixture's existing fluorescent ballast, so it requires no rewiring. Direct wire LED tube lights operate off of line voltage, so the ballast needs to be removed so that line voltage is moving through the sockets. In the beginning you were required to have the fixture be wired at only one end and the use of non-shunted sockets. For many consumers and installers, this made upgrading to LED incredibly complicated. Now, there are double-ended T8 LED tubes available, enabling you to wire the fixture at both ends and use shunted and non-shunted sockets. Lastly is the hybrid led tube, these lamps incorporate the plug-and-play and direct wire installation methods. So there is no need to worry about getting the wrong lamp for your application, because of this they have become increasingly popular.
LED tubes offer a 5-year manufacturer's warranty, helping to significantly reduce maintenance costs and labor. They come in 24-inch, 36-inch, and 48-inch lengths, enabling them to be installed in corresponding fixtures that accept the same size fluorescents.

A quick and easy way to make the change from linear fluorescents to LED is with the installation of LED T5HO tubes. With evolving LED technology, upgrading has never been easier. Select from ballast compatible and direct wire T5HO LEDs. The ballast compatible LEDs is driven by the existing T5HO ballast. Whereas, direct wire models run on 120-277V. Our 48-inch T5HO LED tube lights are direct replacements for 54-watt high output fluorescents. Enjoy 50,000 hours of continuous illumination coupled with a 5 year warranty, without the constant need of maintenance.
