How Your Lighting Dollars get Spent !

Looking at the Cost of Lighting!    When evaluating a new lighting system or reviewing an existing installation, keep in mind that the energy costs will be your single largest expenditure over the life of the light bulbs, and that it is a recurring monthly cost. By choosing energy efficient light bulbs you can target the largest single cost over the lamp life and help keep your energy expenses lower while, in many cases, providing better lighting levels and a better quality of light for your facility. Frontier Lighting is Florida’s leading provider of fluorescent, halogen, metal halide, induction and LED lighting and would be glad to help you select the best light bulb and ballast selections for your facility. Energy Saving Solutions: Lighting is the one of the electrical loads that can be significantly altered to produce energy savings for you while maintaining or even improving your current lighting levels. We have listed a few ideas for reducing your energy consumption. • Replace T12 lighting systems with energy efficient T8 or T5 electronic fluorescent ballast lighting systems • Use high frequency electronic fluorescent ballasts instead of magnetic ballasts • Replace incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent light bulbs • Implement a lighting maintenance plan in your facility (group re-lamping and disposal) • Install lighting controls (dimming instead of fixed light, occupancy sensors).   Frontier Lighting would be glad to help you accomplish any of these energy saving solutions. Since 1987 Frontier Lighting Supply has been providing businesses with quality light bulbs, ballasts, light fixtures, and cost effective lighting solutions.

Fluorescent Magnetic – T12 Ballasts – T8 Ballasts Bradenton Clearwater Sarasota Ft Myers Tampa

Why can’t I find standard Magnetic T12 Fluorescent Ballasts anymore? The standard magnetic T12 fluorescent ballasts that have been the workhorse of the commercial lighting market for the past 60 years were phased out on July 1, 2010 due to the EPACT legislation.      While remaining inventories of these magnetic ballasts that operate (2) 4 foot or 8 foot T12 fluorescent linear tubes can be installed and sold off until inventories are depleted,most distributors by now have sold most of their existing inventory.  End users that are still using the tradition size fluorescent lamps, are now faced with the reality of how to repair their light fixtures. End users now have three options for dealing with their fixture problem.     Frontier Lighting can help!         1)  If you are satisfied with the overall performance of the T12 fluorescent bulbs that you are currently using,  Frontier Lighting has an electronic ballast  in stock that will operate the older style T12 lamps in either 4 foot or 8 foot. The wiring for a two light fixtures would be the same as the magentic version, for a one light setup, two of the wire leads would need to be capped off.       2)  Convert the magnetic ballast to an electronic ballast that will operate up to ( 4)  T8 fluorescent lamps. This style  of fluorescent ballast would require changing your fluorescent lamps to a more energy efficient T8 fluorescent  lamp (light bulb), the fixture and the fixture sockets can be reused,  the wiring however, may need to be modified depending on the electronic ballast. Frontier Lighting has ballasts available that would wire the same as the magnetic ballasts using 2 blue […]

Is the Compact Fluorescent Light Bulb Dead?

    Is the Compact Fluorescent Light Bulb Dead?   With the rapid evolution of the LED light bulb, many are predicting the end of the spiral shaped compact fluorescent light bulb (commonly referred to as CFL’s) that has been the champion of the recent push to reduce energy consumption by the nation’s businesses and households. But the cfl lamp manufacturers still haven’t given up the ghost on the twisted fluorescent screw in bulbs. The newer generations of cfl lights are now available with increased life spans of up to 20,000 hours average rated life, for a fraction of the cost of what an LED bulb currently costs. While the LED lites certainly have found a solid slice of the lighting pie, the other lighting products groups (metal halide bulbs, halogen lights, fluorescent linear tubes, and compact fluorescent bulbs) are continuing to develop newer technologies and supply light more efficiently.
