Retro-fitting LED T8 tubes

Retro-fitting your existing fluorescent light tube holders with LED tubes requires an adjustment to them. LED tubes don’t need ballast or starters and they have to be removed/bypassed, work only an electrician should attempt.


Should you replace the whole unit instead? Consider the following:

– A new unit is considerably more expensive than  replacement tubes

– The adjustment to your fittings should only take around 10 minutes each

– Replacing your fittings with new units takes an electrician’s time, too

– The adjustment is a one off, should an LED tube not work, it can simply be replaced time after time.         A unit is sealed and has to be replaced as a whole.


When you compare the cost, leaving aside the electrician’s time you will need anyway, retro-fitting can be very attractive and cost-effective.
