How to find the correct fluorescent tube replacement?

 

Fluorescent tubes generally come in a standard length depending on the wattage. For example, if you have a 58w tube, you would need to replace it like for like with another 58w version because otherwise, the size will change.

A common reference you may see would be F18w/T8/840/220-40. In this case, 'F18w' is the wattage, 'T8' refers to the diameter of the tube & '840' just refers to the colour light the tube gives off.

If you need any more help regarding tubes just ask out online chat or give us a call on 0113 887 6270

 


How do I change my fluorescent tubes over to LED?

 

Changing Over T8/T12 Fluorescent Tubes?

My fitting has a starter - If you are changing over a fitting that has a starter you can use an Energizer LED Tubes and simply switch over your current starter to the free LED starter included & then put your new energy-efficient LED tube in. Done!

My fitting doesn't have a starter - To change over to LED tubes in a fitting without a starter you would need to rewire your fitting to 240v. Disconnect the ballast/choke and wire live and neutral to just one end of the fitting. The Bright Source LED tubes would be the best option for this.

 

Changing Over T5 Fluorescent Tubes?

LED T5 Tubes are fairly new to the world of lighting. To change over your fluorescent tubes you would need to rewire your fitting disconnecting the ballast and wire live and neutral to one end of the fitting direct to mains 240v. See all our LED T5 Tubes Here
