FAQs for LED tube lights

What are T5 and T8 LED light tubes, and why should I consider them?

T5 and T8 LED light tubes are energy-efficient alternatives to traditional fluorescent tubes. They offer longer lifespans, low energy consumption and a high standard of lighting. LED tube light is increasingly popular with people looking to save energy and those requiring flicker-free daylight white light.
LED tube light is suitable for various applications, including residential, commercial and industrial settings.

What are the main differences between T5 and T8 LED light tubes?

The primary differences between T5 and T8 LED light tubes are their size and energy efficiency. T5 tubes are smaller in diameter (5/8 inch) and tend to be more energy-efficient than T8 tubes (1 inch in diameter). Both types are available in various lengths and offer significant power savings compared to traditional fluorescent tubes.

Is T5 and T8 LED tube light compatible with my existing fittings and fixtures?

Many T5 and T8 LED light tubes are designed to be compatible with existing fluorescent fixtures. However, some may require a simple rewiring or bypassing of the existing electronic ballast. Always check the product specifications and consult with a qualified electrician to ensure compatibility and proper installation.

How do I install LED tubes?

Installation instructions may vary depending on the specific product and your existing fixture. In general, many LED tube lights are 'plug and play', so you'll need to remove the old fluorescent tube, disconnect or bypass the existing electronic ballasts (if necessary), and then install the new LED tube.
Before you replace a fluorescent tube, for detailed guidance, refer to the manufacturer's instructions or consult with a qualified electrician.

How do the brightness levels of T5 and T8 LED light tubes compare to traditional fluorescent tubes?

LED light tubes typically provide equal or greater brightness compared to their fluorescent counterparts while consuming less energy. When selecting an LED tube, consider its lumen output (a measure of brightness) and choose a product with a similar output to your current light source.

What is the life expectancy of LED light tubes?

T5 and T8 LED light tubes have a significantly longer lifespan than traditional fluorescent tubes, often lasting 50,000 hours or more. This reduced need for replacement and maintenance results in cost savings over time.

Are there any safety considerations when using LED tube lights?

LED light tubes are generally considered safer than traditional fluorescent tubes, as they have no mercury content or other hazardous materials. However, it's crucial to follow the manufacturer's installation instructions and consult with a qualified electrician to ensure proper installation and adherence to local electrical codes.

Can T5 and T8 LED light tubes be used with dimmer switches?

Some T5 and T8 LED light tubes are compatible with dimmer switches, allowing you to adjust the brightness levels according to your preference. Always check the product specifications to ensure dimmer compatibility before purchasing.

How do I choose the right LED tube strip lights for my needs?

Consider factors such as the size of your existing fixture, desired brightness level, energy efficiency, and any specific features you may require, such as dimming capability or compatibility with emergency lighting systems. Compare the specifications of different products to find the best match for your needs.
