Lighting upgrades can seem like a hassle, but they don’t have to be. With Philips InstantFit LED lamps, you don’t have to replace your existing fluorescent fixtures, or fully rewire anything to retrofit to LED. Time and labor costs are low, and long-term savings are high.
Why Upgrade to LED?
Of course we all know the number one reason people switch to LED: energy efficiency. Philips InstantFit LEDs have much lower energy consumption than fluorescent lamps—more than 41%, which allows for a short payback time. Their long life means you will save on future maintenance and replacement costs.
Energy efficiency isn’t the only reason to upgrade. Philips InstantFit LED lamps do not contain mercury, making them safer for temperatures down to -22F. This is especially important for lighting in refrigerated or food preparation areas.
With the Philips InstantFit LED T5 and T8 tube lamps, you get proven compatibility with 50% more ballasts than the next leading competitor. These lamps have an average life rating of 50,000 hours, with up to 70,000 hours reported by satisfied customers.
The Philips InstantFit LED T8 lamps have a significantly simplified installation, although they do require some minor wiring. These lamps have up to a 350 degree illumination angle, and can be used with both shunted and non-shunted sockets. With an average life rating of 50,000 hours, they are proven to have more than 40% energy savings, even for applications with frequent “on/off” switching cycles.
