Benefits of T5 Adapters


Convert existing T12 and T8 bulbs to Always Earth Friendly's T5 Plug & Play Adapters
Save  30% up to 70% on your lighting
energy costs.

INDEPENDENT TESTING shows the Always Earth Friendly T5 adapters burn a standard 28 watt T5 bulb
as low as 18 watts using a revolutionary low ballast factor built-in ballast.


     BENEFITS OF CONVERTING TO T5 PATENT PENDING
PLUG & PLAY TECHNOLOGY:

  • Retrofit existing T12 or T8 fluorescent fixtures
  • No need to worry about old tombstones - the AEF T5 plug & play adapter does not energize them
  • 1/2 the cost of new T5 fixtures
  • Less wattage used - as low as 36 watts per fixture but with more lumens than LED
  • Lower air conditioning costs - reduced due to less heat produced by the T5 lamps
  • Ease of installation - about 3 minutes - saves on installation costs/increases ROI
  • Productivity can be increased with better lighting and less absenteeism
  • Payback period from 12 to 24 months
  • Less to maintain - never get into the ballast area again
  • Save on disposal costs - leave old heavy ballasts in the fixture - low mercury in T5 lamps
  • No retrofit "kits" needed - saves on product cost and labor
  • 60,000 hour ballast life
  • 5 year non-prorated warranty
  • ETL certified - UL rated on every AEF T5 adapter
  • T5 lamps are 60% smaller than T12 and 40% smaller than T8 lamps - storage is easier
  • T5 lamps have a longer life span than T12 or T8 lamps - only lose 5% of lumens over life
  • T5 lamps produce higher light output compared to T12 or T8 lamps

ARE ALL T5 ADAPTERS THE SAME?

  The simple answer is NO. 
  *  Others on the market are old or original generation
  *  The AEF plug & play is the newest generation of T5 retrofit adapters
  *  Old generation adapters wire it so all of the lamp holders are "hot" - note the metal pins on the adapters
  *  The plug & play does NOT energize the lamp holders - but connects directly to the incoming line voltage
      Old or broken lamp holders are no longer a concern and do not have to replaced at an additional cost.
      If there is good power coming into the fixture, the AEF adapter will light up. Note the plastic pins on the
      ends of the adapters
  *  The plug & play ballast is rated at 60,000 hours - others are not that long
  *  Many on the market are not UL rated.  This could be a major insurance issue if something goes wrong

                                             FINANCING:

Operating Budget

If you still have T12 lamps existing and you don't have enough funds to do an entire building retrofit, you may consider retrofitting to T5 adapters on a monthly or quarterly basis.  You are already spending money out of your operating budget on ballasts and lamps, don't keep putting up old technology and not saving energy.  T12 ballasts and lamps are getting more and more expensive and the availability will be diminishing since they are no longer being manufactured.  Remember, you will be saving on lighting energy costs each month on your electric bill.  Write a smaller check to the utility companies as you retrofit, you keep that part of the savings in your operating account.
