How to Switch Plug-In CFL Lamps to LED Easily

Posted on 24th May 2017

Compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs)

Compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) were a better alternative to traditional incandescent bulbs. Now, LEDs have emerged as the new contender for most efficient lighting solution. Whether you’re retrofitting an entire commercial building or just looking to replace an expired lamp, one of the best ways to reduce your energy bill is to replace CFL with LED bulbs.

Why Switch?

Although LEDs usually cost a bit more than CFLs, the long-term savings are worth the cost of admission. On average, a CFL will last approximately 8,000 hours. An equivalent LED lasts as much as 25,000 hours – sometimes even more. When you replace CFL with LED bulbs, you’re dramatically reducing the cost of replacement lamps as well as maintenance time and fees.

LEDs also use significantly less power than other lighting options. If you’re looking for an easy way to drastically reduce your energy bill, replace all of your CFLs with LEDS. You will see a tremendous drop in energy consumption, saving your organization money while simultaneously reducing its carbon footprint.

How to Make the Transition

CFL with LED bulbsNext to linear fluorescent tubes like the T8, plug-in CFLs are some of the most common lights found in commercial settings such as offices, warehouses, and retail stores. However, many business owners overlook LEDs because they assume they will have to buy new fixtures and start from scratch. The reality is that it’s surprisingly cheap and easy to replace CFL with LED bulbs.

A Simple Upgrade

These days, there are plenty of plug-and-play options that allow you to replace CFL with LED bulbs without any technical experience required. For example, this handy InstantFit Philips lamp can be operated on a fixture’s existing approved instant start ballast. All you need to do is plug it in and turn it on, and you’re good to go. We have countless other similar lamps that make transitioning to LEDs a breeze.
