What to Know About Ballast and Bulb Replacement?

Are your home or office lights going out too frequently? Having a ballast replacement may be the solution. Making use of the correct lighting can save you a substantial amount on energy, on monthly basis. Using the right lighting fixtures can also reduce costs of maintenance, and enhance productivity, not forgetting the reduction in your carbon footprint. It is important that you measure the energy required to light a bulb but going for a combination of ballast and bulb will make your lighting more efficient than traditional incandescent lightings, it will also offer high returns on investment. Please contact Mr. Electric Of Katy for more information on this. 

Features of different lighting fixtures

The halogen is twice as efficient as incandescent lights and are commonly used for outdoor lighting purposes. Fluorescents make use of a third or fifth of energy consumed by incandescent lights and are most commonly used for commercial purposes. Fluorescent lights last up to 10 times longer than incandescent lights, and those containing the newer electronic ballasts are much more efficient.  The Compact fluorescent lights (CFL), are smaller versions of fluorescent lights, that provide quicker and better energy savings than the incandescent lights.

The HID metal halides are up to 5 times more efficient than incandescent lights, and even last more than 20 times longer. The metal halides are more relevant for industrial purposes because they generate larger quantities of electricity. The Light Emitting Diodes (LED) lights make use of 75% less energy than incandescent lightings, and last up to 50 times longer than incandescent lights. If you want to save money on making the right choice of lighting, please contact Mr. Electric Of Katy and we will supply and install original lightings that will last for many years. 

Mr. Electric Of Katy will help you go beyond the light bulbs

Upgrading your lighting system from bulbs is more than replacing ballasts. You need to have a more functional system design plus advanced technology to get more value for your investment. Great ballast selection and efficient lighting design from Mr. Electric Of Katy, will surely save you more money on energy.

Ballast selection must be done in such a way that the right technology that meets your needs, and application is chosen. When choosing the ideal ballast, you must consider the spacing, height of the ceiling, the light distribution, glare, as well as the task plane height. The room finishes may affect the overall appearance and brightness of the lighting fixture. The paint colors, for instance, may affect the lighting quality. Safety considerations, when integrating lighting fixtures with other building plans, are part of our duties at Mr. Electric Of Katy. 

If you want to save even more on your lighting systems, you may want to include extra features such as dimmers, Bi-level switches, Vacancy sensors, Daylight sensors, and smart lighting control systems.
