Fluorescent VS LED lights

Article with graphs, charts, and more information:

I finally upgraded my shop lights from fluorescent to LED and couldn’t be happier. I contacted American Green Lights for suggestions and ended up making a complete switch. For full disclosure this isn’t sponsored, I have nothing to gain or lose if you do or do not buy their product, and I am not being paid to write the article or make a video. However, I did ask to be provided the lights in exchange for sharing the results of the upgrade, good or bad. Now that the switch is complete I’m a huge fan of the product and the results but I don’t want my opinion to be the reason you do or do not buy something. Instead, I want this video/article to provide actual information with an A to B comparison that will let you see the results to and use that to make a decision for yourself. As a bonus for you the viewer, Jim from American Green Lights said that anyone who mentions seeing the lights on my Instagram or YouTube videos can get a 10% discount on the product and free shipping. Simply email your desired items to jaybatesoffer@americangreenlights.com.

  2. i would buy a uv light meter and keep it on permanently in the shop
    HOW DO LED LAMPS FAIL – Google Search
    what is the spectrum of led room lamps
    cracks or holes in old led lamp phosphor will pass high power uv, from the powerful blue led, which is inside every white lamp, to the room outside
    why are there are no white leds
    if the phosphor were not there, the blue light could burn the retina
    when does the protective white phosphor in led lamps begin to deteriorate
    are led lamps made in china
    do any manufacturers test for led lamp uv at the factory
    clear polycarbonate plastic is said to block 100 percent UV

  3. Great job Jay. I have been wanting to upgrade my lighting as well. Keep up the great videos.

  4. Nice, Jay. I'm about to start retrofitting my shop with LED bulbs. I'm just going to start with replacing the bulbs I have though. No new fixtures yet. Btw, the "bell" or "housing" is usually called a diffuser I think. Hail State!

  5. NICE JOB!

  6. Sooo… you mooched these lights from this company and claim you’re not going to endorse them, but you mentioned their name and gave a rave review on the lights but you’re not being biased because you said you weren’t….

  7. Great info. I'm using this for a small indoor grow space to get a jump on my spring garden. I'll be switching to LED thanks to your video!

  8. Do the LED lights give you any headache at all? Like do they strain your eyes after a few hours in the room or no?

  9. Dude, better check your Math, Most twin tube 48 inch florescent lights with ballast, check out at like 96 watts.

  10. So, you got them for FREE!
     So, what are we to make of that when we view this?
    Nice Bright lights for FREE = A win for You!

  11. Thanks, big help. My shop is 16 years old. I have 24 t8 bulbs lighting my shop. 6 are either dead or flickering. I've aready replaced 2 of 6 ballasts.
    At 60 years old it sounds like the LEDs will outlast me.
    That's both exciting and depressing.
    Thanks again.

  12. Heads up you can get a LED replacement for the T8 32W lamps that are bypass that only cost $5-$10 if you have fixtures relamp. Also make sure if you have the lights on the same circuit you don't turn them on when a machine is running… I am sure this happens all the time.

  13. Well I loved the video but didn't see any link to buy their lights. Ended up going with Amazon. 4 x 4' LED lights for $99.00 curious how much your lights were in comparison?

  14. Thanks for the video… I want to put better lights in my garage as the first step to a shop and was wondering if I should go with fluorescent or LED. Now I know. Thanks, KB.

  15. I am working on the lighting for my wood shop as well.  I found the Phillips 209056 Fluorescent lamps which blow most LEDs away.  They are 5000K color, 2000 lumens, and have a CRI of 98.

  16. Nice work Jay.. great improvement.. 🙂
    I recently moved to a new house and have (around working), turned what was a leaky carport into my new "shop".. It's draughty and damn cold here in the Southern Tablelands of Southern New South Wales, (still have more work to do to complete the transformation), but the main improvement, aside from building walls to keep the rain out, was to install LED lights.. The carport literally had none, and there was only one 2 foot fluro above the sliding door to the kitchen, but that was also around the corner, which meant 75% of the carport was in total darkness, and the remaining 25% was still only good for navigating around, (a mobile phone light was brighter).
    I installed 6 x 3200 lumen, 36 watt, 4 foot LED battens.. and OH, MY, GOD..! It's brighter than daylight now.. so awesome.. 🙂
    I needed to upgrade the lighting because at some point in the near future I'll be launching my own channel, under my business name, so you'll be able to see for yourself if you swing on by.. 🙂

  17. I take a lot of photos in my house using my smartphone. I've learned the hard way that smartphone cameras focus and metering in general tend to go haywire under LED lighting due to its blinking.

  18. I work in my basement. I just installed some track lighting in addition to my fluorescent shop lights and installed regular 100W LED bulbs. I also put a dimmer switch right next to it. You can adjust the amount of light as well as direct it. Its MUCH brighter than my 2-bulb 4' T8 lights. It makes a HUGE difference. I didn't measure the power consumption but the shop lighting is rated at 32W while the track lighting is rated at 45W.

  19. Jay, Thorough as usual. When I put the fluorescent lighting in my shop i used lights that put out a different frequency to approximate outside lighting. Light frequencies also affect the perceived color of a finished wood piece. Women have makeup mirrors that do this so their end facial coloring does not look artificial in different light sources. Will probably add Led's to my current lighting as my eyes are getting worse like everyone as we get older.

  20. We have led high bay lights at work. Great light output compared to our old 400w mh lights. We have had to replace quite a few drivers for the leds though.

  21. Great video Jay, I love my LED lights.
    You might want to look into a goose neck lamp for your miter station if you find it too dark.
    Next project, get Google assistant to turn on all my lights.
