How to Replace your Fluorescent Tube Lights with LEDs

If you’re ready to replace or upgrade your garage, kitchen, shop or office’s fluorescent tube lights with LEDs there are great and inexpensive LED “tubes” on the market that you can use.  However, unlike your typical lightbulb where you need only screw in a replacement this upgrade is going to require some modification to the electrical wiring and removal of the fluorescent ballast.

Video – How to Replace your Fluorescent Tube Lights with LEDs

As you’ll see real-time in the video this only takes about 5-10 minutes per fixture, but I take some extra time to talk about the function of the ballast and tips to make the process go as easily and smoothly as possible.

The LEDs I used in this video are JESLED’s T8 4-foot tube bulbs.  They are 24 watt each and are designed to be a direct replacement for your old fluorescent tubes, I found them on Amazon for (at the time of this writing) $35 for a pack of 4, $90 for a pack of 12 or $163 for a pack of 25:
