We get tons of inquiries here about people looking to replace their old, worn out or dead lights with the new, latest and greatest LEDs. Sometimes it’s for cosmetic reasons, sometimes it’s to save money, and sometimes it’s to go green. If you currently have T12 fluorescent fixtures in your space, you can accomplish all 3 goals in one fell swoop.
LED Source® carries multiple lines of 1×4, 2×2 and 2×4 LED fluorescent fixture replacements. We have several excellent options from Cree. They are the CR14, CR22 and CR24 respectively. They come in a very attractive package and at a very attractive price. Check out the picture, look how sharp that fixture looks. Go one, check it out, I’ll wait. Not only is it a looker but lasts longer and that saves you money. The LED lamp will last over 13 years if you use it 12 hours a day. T12 lamps claim to last almost 3 years at that amount of usage, but we all know that they’re very dim if they make it that long and usually burn out well before that from the on/off cycling they undergo. That doesn’t even take into account replacing the ballasts in your system every few years. Add up the costs of the parts and labor to do that and you’re looking at a significant maintenance cost. Plus, T12 lamps are going to be phased out as early as late 2012 and won’t even be available!
Not only do you save on lamp and ballast replacement costs, but you will also save on your electrical bill every month. The typical T12, 4 lamp fixture uses 172 Watts of power between the lamps and ballast. The Cree CR24 equivalent uses only 50 Watts. So, not only are you saving money and time not having to replace components, but you are also using 71% less energy per fixture. That’s significant savings on just a few fixtures; imagine if you have hundreds or thousands of these in your facility what the savings would be.
And finally, if you’re looking to go green, LED is the lighting solution for you. They are mercury free (all fluorescent lamps have mercury in them and must be specially disposed of), recyclable and don’t contain the dangerous chemicals that are in other types of lighting. With the combination of easy maintenance, cost savings and excellent good looks, there is no better solution on the planet than to replace your fluorescent lighting with LED fixtures from LED Source®.
