Fluorescent T5 and Electronic Ballasts
After 1988, all new construction requires the use of newer styles of ballasts that are energy efficient and offer a longer lifespan and cooler operation. Today’s electronic ballasts use much less power and operate at a higher frequency. The electronic versions function at cooler temperatures, emitting less heat than earlier magnetic styles. This provides a longer lifespan for the lamp and energy savings as well. Recent advances in technology include hybrid ballasts, which operate through a combination of electromagnetic technology coupled with electronic components. One of the benefits of using a hybrid ballasts is that they can operate for 25 years.
