Some general information.
At BuyLightFixtures.com, we carry a wide variety of light bulbs including some that are a little more obscure than others. This F18T8 would be one of those and it’s used in a very specialized application, typically appliance lighting or vending machine lighting. Many decades ago, people specified these for situations where people had a specific length that they needed to utilize. There are limitations with some of these appliance or vending machines and that length of light needed to be exactly right. So this comes with the similar name of the product with a different length that is usually tacked to the end of your identification code.

The identifying characteristics of the F18T8.
This lamp is a T8 fluorescent but it’s not like the other types that you see today. This one operated on a magnetic ballast and continues to do so today. Unlike the other types of T8 lamps that you see with electronic ballasts, this one isn’t particularly energy-efficient it was made for a certain application. This is not to be confused with the other types of T8 lamps that are used for general lighting. It is a fluorescent bulb that had this one application. Some people tell us that they have a hard time finding it at their local store and that’s often the case. This isn’t the type of bulb that a hardware store or a big box retailer is going to carry. For them there’s not enough demand to put it into stock, but we have plenty of these on hand and can take care of your needs regardless of which length that you need. As mentioned earlier, the length is always designated by the number that’s typically at the end of the code such as K26 which would be a 26 inch length from pin to pin or K28 which would be 28 inches. So you can do a simple measurement from pin to pin on the fluorescent light bulb you have if you’re trying to figure out which one of these 18 watt lamps you have.

The available lamp color.
Sometimes people want different color temperatures for this type of lamp, and at one time there might’ve been different colors such as warm white or daylight, but those are no longer available. You’ll only find the cool white 4100K available today. The good news is that they are still available for almost any kind of appliance light fixtures that you may have. These are usually typical older types of lights regardless of what they’re used in. You could always take a look at the end of the bulb and it will have a stamp on it to designate which one it is. One of the ways to troubleshoot these if you’re having a problem with them is to determine whether you have a lamp or ballast issue. If the lamp doesn’t come on at all, it could just be that it needs to be changed, but if you see flickering like it’s trying to light, then it might be a ballast issue. We do have magnetic ballast for these bulbs readily available and you’ll see that as part of the offering within this category.

Energy saving alternatives.
Many people have asked us what some LED alternatives may be for this type of lighting. And although there’s no direct replacement bulb for this in LED, there may be some ways to get around it. Some people have replaced their existing light fixtures with something in place of it such as tape lighting or ribbon lighting. It may not always work out for your situation but it’s something that could be considered if you just want to get rid of this light completely. Of course, if you do, there are energy savings that go along with it. If you want to know how much that you can save by going to something that’s in an LED light source, make sure to download our free spreadsheet that’s on the left-hand column of our website that is an energy-saving calculator. It will give you all the information you need to make an informed decision about whether it makes sense to go to this type of change or retrofit. There’s never been a better time to look at alternatives for something like this, but if you’re a person that just wants a replacement bulb we have plenty of those on hand and it still readily available.

How can we help you today?
If you’re unsure about whether you have the right F18T8 light bulb or not, you can always email us or call with any questions you may have. You can always send a picture of what you have as well if you don’t have any identifying stamp on the side of the bulb. If you need a larger quantity of these, make sure to give us a call for that as well as we have special pricing for bulk purchases. We're always trying to help our customers get better lighting if possible, but sometimes the only thing you can do is replace the light bulb. For many of you that may be all, you’re looking for with the F18T8 which is very unique and doesn’t lend itself well to doing some kind of retrofit. Keep in mind that we're always looking for new solutions to replace the older type of lighting technology. There’s never been a better time to take a look at the possibility of making a small change and making your life easier without having to use something that is a rather obscure type of bulb.
