Advantages of LED Over T8 Lamps

Convenience stores, supermarkets and gas station C-stores have recurring problems with their T8 fluorescent refrigerated display lighting and are impressed by the advantages of LED over T8 lamps. Poor lighting, high energy costs, ballast failures, continual repairs and customer dissatisfaction are constant complaints from retailers.

Following the lead of retail giants Wal-mart, Target and c-stores like 7-Eleven and Kwik-Mart, many convenience stores and grocer owners are looking to replace the inefficient and outdated fluorescent lamps with very efficient LED cooler door lights. With the phase-out of T12 lamps and ballast and the limited time availability of utility rebates, now is the time to act and start saving energy, enjoy reduced electric bills and eliminate the maintenance of re-lamping and ballast replacement. Just a few of the advantages of LED over T8 lamps.

The advantages of LED over T8 lamps are not limited to energy savings and maintenance savings, but retailers are impressed with lighting uniformity, a neater look and true color rendering of food and beverage products in coolers and freezers alike.
