Parts run today, suggestions? (general discussion)

I need to make a parts run loop for the farm today and I'm needing to replace a fluorescent light fixture in the feed room. I guess I could just get a new ballast but I hate those damn lights so I'm going to look at an upgrade.

I'm only lighting a 10 X 10 room but it's all interior and has the steps to the hay loft in it.
Has anyone use any LED's in this kind of situation and what do your think. Other suggestions?

If ya wanna ride along we'll make a coffee stop.

I'd say LED lights are a great choice. Is there a Home Depot in your area? Lookee here: https://www.homedepot.com/b/Lighting-Commercial-Lighting-Shop-Lights/N-5yc1vZc9h6

That sounds like fun, I'm in. :-)

Abso-damn-lutely on the LED lights. Got 'em in my unheated garage and they are WORLDS better than even the modern electronic ballast low-temp fluorescents.

Coffee? Well, okay if you insist, but I need donuts to go with.

I've been converting a lot of fluorescent 4' fixtures over to LED's in the shop and garage. Much better light, not bothered by low temps either. Some by complete fixture replacement, some by only bulb replacement.

If your ballasts are still good, you can get LED bulbs that fit right in the existing fixture to replace T8 and T12 4'tubes.

That's what I went with. I've got 8 of them in various places.

I've done 4 so far, but as the old ones go down I'll replace with these.

Yeah, after I got to Lowes (closer than Home Depot) I wandered up the shop light isle and they had them all on display and lit. Shut them all down except this one and was very impressed.

For $35.00 I ain't fighting the ballast on the old one and got better lighting.
