    The T-8 refers only to the diameter of the lamp. Fluorescent and LED lighting are two different types of light. The cost for the LED lamp is quite high compared to a Fluorescent lamp. The avg. cost for a 4 ft. LED is approximately $75.00 per lamp compared a Fluorescent of the same length at $2.50. The LED lamps last about 5 years, which is roughly the lamp life of a Fluorescent.

    You must also alter the light fixture with conversion to LED. The ballast has to be removed and the fixture rewired, and if you do not know what your doing you’ll need an electrician. The cost to change one 4 foot 2 lamp light fixture from Fluorescent to LED, will more than likely cost in excess of $235.00. $150.00 for the lamps & a minimum of $85.00 for an electrical service call.
