-- Unlike fluorescent lamps, LED U Shape Bulbs always require a small driver to regulate the flow of power through the lamp. However, a LED bulb converts electrical power into useful light more efficiently than a fluorescent lamp. Lower energy cost typically offsets the higher initial cost of the bulb. While standard T8 U-Shaped fluorescent lamps have been mostly used in large commercial or institutional buildings, the LED U-Bulbs from http://www.ledubulbs.com are now being used as the energy-saving alternative to mercury filled fluorescent lamps models these days. Compared with fluorescent U-Tube bulbs, LED U-Shaped bulbs use less power for the same amount of light, last almost 3 times longer, eliminate potential “fluorescent headaches”, contain no toxic mercury, and require no ballast that can fail and that also generates higher heat levels demanding more air conditioning of a room space.
The U-Tube LED U-Shaped Bulb series are well-suited for use anywhere: homes, offices, museums, hospitals, hotels, restaurants, meeting rooms, basically anywhere conventional fluorescent lights can be found. The excellent light quality of U-Tube LED Bulbs makes your room lighting more effective and easier on your eyes. No longer will you need to worry about heat damage to your recessed ceiling light fixtures. All of our U-Tube LED products at http://www.ledubulbs.com
are built to withstand the unique daily demands of commercial tube lighting. The LED U-Bend Bulb Series does not require the use of a ballast, only a small driver, thus allowing you to save even more energy and reduce heat generated. We find that removing the driver from the LED tube reduces even more heat and strain generated on the bulb ensuring an even longer life. Installation is simple but does require basic wiring knowledge. Simply disconnect the power to the current ballast and wire your direct current to the two wires on the LED driver and you are all set. The two prongs of the bulb that sent power to the bulbs are now only used as holders offering an even safer installation. **We still always recommend seeking the help of a licensed electrician.
