Any commercial building (hospital, retail store, school, warehouse, etc.) that was built prior to 1988 and hasn’t had its lighting fixtures upgraded, in most cases still has the older magnetic-style of fluorescent ballast that emits PCBs in place. These lighting systems pose a real health risk and fire hazard and need to be replaced as soon as possible.
Fluorescent T5 Ballasts Replacement
After 1988, all new construction requires the use of newer styles of ballasts that are more energy efficient. They feature a longer lifespan and cooler operation. The efficiency is dependent on the age of building and systems in place. Magnetic ballasts created after 1988 tend to consume energy even when they aren’t currently turned on with a lamp in place. This makes them less desirable than the more advanced electronic ballasts that are now available. The 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.
