    Re: LED v.s. Fluorescent lights in the garage

    This thread has some good information. Depending on what your budget is and how you want your electric bill to be, there are few options.

    For me I had a couple LED bulbs that I was looking at and also was looking at some high output t5 or T8 fixtures.

    One option for the LED bulb is using a 40W LED Flood light. These bulbs will produce 2500 lumens and come in either 4000k or 2800k and have two types of beam angles 36 degrees and 180 degrees.

    PAR30 LED Bulb, 40W | LED Flood Light Bulbs and LED Spot Light Bulbs | LED Household Lighting | Super Bright LEDs | Super Bright LEDs

    If you were looking for your most efficient led bulb look at the nanoleaf
    Nanoleaf | The world's most energy efficient lightbulb!

    Or you could go with the LED t8 tubes that are on the same website as the flood light. Ultimately I went with a bunch of cheaper T8 fixtures that were purchased at Menards.

    If you go this route try and find a Par 38 led. It will give you twice the lumens of the Par 30. Good info and sites DD.

    I finally purchased and installed this fixture. I couldn't be happier! It is a very high end unit that produces plenty of light and suitable for wet locations.

    Re: LED v.s. Fluorescent lights in the garage

    Hi, of course the LED lights are the better choice. They can working much better and longer, saving much more for you!

    You have three choice for this LED lighting transformation.


    1. Buy the LED garage Lamp or LED shop light directly, which as bright as the 4ft LED T8 tubes;
    2. Use the lamp holder with input power wire directly, install them on the wall with a length fit for the 4ft LED T8 tubes;
    3. Purchase some compatible LED tube lamp, and use them in the old fixtures, with this kind new tube, you have no need do the rewire job to passby ballast.

    Re: LED v.s. Fluorescent lights in the garage

    My choice were T5 Florescent fixtures. The cost and output put the available LED's to shame. I really don't care about power usage / costs as they aren't on 24x7.

    I use four dual bulb 4ft appliances that were $35ea and all together they put out nearly 40k lumens. My garage is super bright. Add in two 100w LED's in my garage door opener and it's perfect. Now I just can't wait to get the whole garage painted to reflect even more light!
