SBH LED tubes are the new replacement for the older fluorescent tubes that have been used in both commercial as well as residential settings for a number of years. The new SBH LED tubes versions include T5,T8,T10,T12,T20 and other versions. It offer you the same amount of light, but in the process they use less electricity and are certainly far more efficient than you could ever imagine.
SBH LED tubes are on sale with a number of different wattages and this means that they can offer you varying amounts of light depending on the size of the space that has to be lit and how bright you want it to be. The most common types of SBH LED tubes that people buy range is T8 intergrated SBH LED tubes, T5 intergrated SBH LED tubes, T8 separated SBH LED tubes and T5 separated SBH LED tubes. In order to show you how this can be enough light it is best to look at the lumens figures, as the older tubes would have a higher number of watts, and what you will see is that a 4 foot SBH LED tubes will typically have 1500 lumens and this is certainly more than enough light for a number of rooms and situations.
Another thing to consider when buying T12 intergrated SBH LED tubes is the length that you require as there are several available for you to choose from. These lengths will range from 2 foot long up to 8 foot long and another thing to consider is that the wattages do increase in accordance with the length meaning the largest will be the brightest due to them being used to add light to a bigger space.
As was mentioned at the start, SBH LED tubes are far more efficient than the earlier fluorescent models and this can be seen by the fact that SBH LED tubes generally use at least 40% less electricity than the older models with this resulting in substantial savings throughout the lifetime of the tube. You will also often find that T8 intergrated SBH LED tube will last for up to 50,000 hours before needing to be replaced, but do note that this figure does vary between manufacturers so some may be less, but still able to last for quite some time resulting in SBH LED tubes being real value for money.
