Suggested reading brought to you by Sunlan Lighting: Important information about fluorescent long tubes

After February 2023 you will no longer be able to buy standard old-fashion light bulbs. There will be a few exceptions such as medical bulbs and the 250/375 BR40 heat lamps. Discontinued light bulbs include Halogen, Krypton, and xenon. The light bulbs used to combat S.A.D., Neodymium bulbs, will be manufactured and we will have the full line in stock and on our shelves.

As of September, we have most of the old bulbs in stock. You may buy as many as you wish. You may use these light bulbs if you bought them before the end of February 2023.

Fluorescent lamps are no longer manufactured. We are allowed to sell theses lamps until all are sold. Many fluorescent lamps have been sold out elsewhere. There are three options for the long tube fluorescent replacements. You may buy a LED fixture; you may keep your current fixture and buy a LED Tube that will use your current wiring and the current ballast; you can use your current fixture, remove the old ballast and rewire to use a self -ballasted LED Tube.

The colors, Kelvins: Many LED lamps use the same Kelvins as fluorescent lamps. There are some different Kelvins used for the same verbiage. Examples: Cool white= CW= 4100. Some LED use 4000 Kelvin. Warm White was shown as WW, or 30K, or 3000 Kelvin. The color called Daylight was also known as 67K or 6500 Kelvin. Most LED lamps use 5000 Kelvin as Daylight.
