Some general information.

At BuyLightFixtures.com, we want you to have the best quality light fixtures for any commercial office lighting possible. That’s why we carry many types of drop ceiling lights that are made in the USA. The build quality is better than the imports, and we have a price that’s very competitive with all of those. There’s never been a better time to upgrade your lighting to something that is not only going to give you excellent illumination but also going to provide you with the least amount of energy use possible. We strive to help all our customers reach those goals when considering a new lighting arrangement. These are the LED lights that replaced the old fluorescent troffers used in the past. These are the ones with the prismatic lens typically and were used for many decades as an effective way to get a good light spread over a larger area. A low cost was always the consideration when specifying this type of lighting. With the advent of better lighting through LED implementation, were getting all sorts of different kinds of lighting that improves upon the pure form of prismatic lens variety. Of course, those are still available, and we believe that there are many occasions where that still what people like to use because of its low cost.

The standard for office lighting.
Many of you are probably considering this type of LED 2x4 fixture because you're going to put it in a grid ceiling. Offices everywhere continue to use this style of drop ceiling grid and will continue to use it far into the future. But what you do with the lighting is your chance to get something that is going to improve visual comfort and better serve your business or home lighting needs. There are several things to consider when replacing a T8 32-watt fluorescent fixture; you need to make sure that you’re going to have enough light with the LED product you’re thinking about choosing. For most type of fluorescents, they can be replaced with roughly half the wattage of LED and still maintain light levels. This is just a general rule of thumb although each situation could be different and it depends a lot on the room that it’s in and what’s being done underneath the light. There are several things to consider when looking for the right light.

Saving money is a beautiful thing.
One of the primary considerations is energy savings and how much you can save in real dollars having a good payback for your investment. There’s never been a better time to consider going to something that’s more energy-efficient in 2x4 LED troffers because there are so many choices that will accomplish that energy reduction while getting something that looks a little bit better. That’s why we call these lighting retrofits, a lighting upgrade. Because it is an upgrade getting the best possible lighting for the least amount of wattage is what the game is all about. If you can accomplish that, you win. If you’re unsure as to how much money you can save, we have a simple lighting payback spreadsheet that you can download from the left-hand column of our website. It gives you everything you need to compare an existing lighting system to one of our more efficient LED 2x4’s. All you have to do is input your current data for the troffer fixtures you may have now, comparing them to the new system with less wattage draw. Not only do we have a figure in there for energy savings but it will also calculate the payback, the time it takes to recoup your investment through energy savings. There’s also a figure that you can use for maintenance savings; all this put together can get you a swift payback. And if your electric utility has incentive programs for people upgrading their lighting with something more energy-efficient, you can see that go down even further. The return on investment on energy-efficient lighting is great these days, and it’s something to consider to reduce the cost of running your business or office.

Good lighting is so important.
Now that we talked about energy efficiency, it’s time to talk about proper lighting. We often say that if you save all the energy in the world, but the lighting job turns out to be poorly done, you haven’t saved anything. Whatever you saved in energy you may lose in productivity or sales if it’s a local situation. So it’s important to get this done right the first time. We want you to have good lighting while you’re saving a lot of energy. That’s the primary goal, and that’s what it’s all about. If you’re unsure about how many light fixtures you’ll need to get a good lighting job done, you can give us some of the information about the room or rooms you’re trying to light, and we can do a sample layout that will provide you with the necessary lighting for your situation. It’s an excellent way to make sure that what you’re doing is going to fit the task that you’re doing underneath the light as well as the general effect that it will have on the space. But will need some of those details from you which have to do with the dimensions of the room, how high the ceiling is, and what you’ll be doing. All these things make a difference as to getting the right kind of light. If you’re going for a lighting upgrade that has utility incentives, you have one shot to get it right. But fear not, it can be done getting you the best possible lighting effect for any application.

Color makes the room.
Another consideration that people need to take into account when changing over to new LED 2x4 troffers is color temperature. Sometimes people think it’s not that important then they will say that you can give me whatever you feel is best, but we don’t like to do that. It’s an individual choice whether you want something that’s going to have a warmer color appearance or something that’s going to be a cooler color. And a personal preference can reflect on how well an office functions. You want to make sure that people are pleased with the color of light if you don’t have that you’ll get people grumbling and may be using it as an excuse for not getting things done. Typically the warmer color is something around 3000K; cool white is about 4100K and daylight is 5000K. Most people that use these in a home might be looking at something that would be the warmer color temperature because it works so well with different kinds of earth tones you may have in a house. A lot of businesses though prefer the 5000K daylight color because it’s so good with black and white contrast, reading and visual acuity. These are all things that will help people be more productive, and that will help in making that happen.

Special considerations for mounting.
For those of you who don’t have a drop grid ceiling, we also have these in surface mount versions. And sometimes different businesses will have a combination of both. There are some places in the ceiling where there’s ductwork, and you can’t put anything up in the ceiling; it’s just too thin. For those situations we humbly suggest using some surface mount that look the same as the ones that are the LED 2x4’s in the ceiling. It’s a simple solution to keep everything looking the same even though some of the light fixtures will be on the ceiling and others will not.

Choose from different types of LED.
Also, keep in mind that there are a couple of different choices when you consider which type of LED source you want to use in your situation. There are the light fixtures that utilize LED tubes as opposed to the other kind which uses an integral LED. For many people, the LED T8 tubes are a good choice because it gives them the capability to change it later if they want to go to something that’s even more energy-efficient or change the color in the light fixture. Some people don’t want to have any more bulbs; they want to reduce their maintenance to zero for lighting. For those people, the integral LED is the answer, and there is no bulb, but the downside is that there a little bit more money and they can never be changed later on. The upside to those is that they are dimmable and for some applications, that’s going to be the best way to go. It all depends on your situation.
