As energy costs rise, consider installing a fluorescent light ballasts. These new products reduce energy loss while continuing to power your lamps at high frequencies.

Pro Lighting carries both instant start ballasts and programmed start ballasts. Instant start ballasts ignite the lamp by applying a large voltage across the lamp during starting, while programmed start ballasts provide lower voltage to heat the lamp cathodes before applying higher starting voltage and then continues to provide cathode heating voltage while you’re operating the lamp. Instant start styles consume less energy and are the most energy efficient solution or fluorescent lights. However, programmed start styles will work with occupancy sensors, so that’s something to consider if you need that feature.
