Some general information.
At, we want to provide you with the highest quality T10 light bulbs that are going to last for a long time and take care of your lighting replacement needs. The T10 fluorescent tubes are the older style of fluorescents that were used for general lighting and still are today in many light fixtures. They were developed as a higher light output to which operated on the same ballasts as T12’s. It was just about increased lumen output, slightly more energy-efficient as a result. Although many have been replaced with T8 and LED, there’s still a lot of you who have these and need these for a fluorescent replacement bulb. Most of the time this fluorescent light bulb cool white was the most popular for offices and commercial lighting everywhere. They were also used in everybody’s garage workshop or basement; it was so pervasive. Now we have these as a consumable item that you can still buy or consider replacing something more energy-efficient.

The operation of F40T10 lamps.
These lamps operate on a magnetic ballast most of the time, although on a few occasions people and converted some of their light fixtures to an electronic ballast that will utilize this light. It’s tough to get any more light fixtures that are made for this type of bulb, but we still have a few of those. Most people are converted to the T8’s that operate on an electronic ballast, and that’s been the natural replacement for the old light bulb cool white 4100K. The ballast in this operation is much more massive than the electronic ballasts because of all the copper windings on the inside. It’s also a rapid start ballast and starting operation, not an instant start. Sometimes you’ll see this a little slow to light, or it’ll flicker a little bit before it goes entirely on. That was the nature of this type of lamp, and that’s why a lot of people are replacing it because of its flickering, poor color rendition and high energy consumption. But for many people, it might not be in the budget to replace them all at this time for something more efficient and if that’s the case we have plenty in stock for you.

The colors for T10 lamps.
There’s no talking about T10 light bulbs without talking about color temperature. This is one of the first lamps that applied the Kelvin color temperature correctly. You’ll see everything from 3500K to 5000K color and the most popular 4100K. Regardless of the color, you choose the lumen output is going to be very high, upwards of 3600 lumens. This is an excellent replacement if all you want to do is get a brighter light than your T12 lamps. They operate on the same magnetic ballast, and the sockets are the same. So if all you want is something brighter for your application, this would be a good choice because it’s just a direct replacement of what you may have now if you utilize F40T12 lamps.

Saving money is a beautiful thing.
With the advent of more energy-efficient light sources such as LED tube lights, you see some of these replaced now with T8 LED tubes. It’s a good choice if you want to save more energy and possibly qualify for some different rebate programs that electrical utilities have. LED lights will give you the same amount of light for less wattage and so this is where you’ll get the best possible savings. Some people don’t just change the tubes, they will go for a whole new light fixture if some of the incentives are good or their lighting system is particularly old. If that’s the case we have a complete line of lighting fixtures in LED and for some situations with the payback being so good, it might make sense to go to an entirely new fixture instead of just retrofitting to an LED bulb. If you want to know how much you’ll save on going to an LED T8 light bulb, we have a free download on the left-hand column of our website that is an energy savings calculator in an Excel spreadsheet format. It will give you all the information that you need to make a simple comparison for what you have now and what you may be thinking about going to as far as in more efficient lighting system. All you have to do is put the existing data as to what you have right now and what you might want to buy from us that is more efficient, and it will tell you the savings and the payback. So you can get an idea of what might work best for you in your situation as far as an economic consideration. There’s never been a better time to take a look at energy savings in your lighting system. That’s because you can now get the excellent lighting that you want while saving the maximum amount of energy. Good lighting is essential and if you save all the energy possible but the lighting job is weak, then you haven’t saved anything. You may have cost yourself something in productivity or even retail sales. That’s why it’s important to get it right the first time if you’re looking at saving energy on your next project. It’s that golden opportunity to make sure you get it right and achieving both goals.
