Basement Bedroom Lighting

Basement Bedroom Lighting

Click to view full size image

Lights in a basement bedroom. These are 1'x4' troffers, and when originally gotten they were 3xF40T10. Before being installed in the basement ceiling, the original 2 ballasts in each fixture were junked.

Replacements were 2xF40 LPF RS (went with just 2 lamps because it was pretty tight/difficult to get 3 in these fixtures)

Like the other couple pic's I posted recently, these are pretty outdated looking. No real ambition to update them at this point though.

Have thought about replacing the ballasts because they can be pretty crappy...sometimes if its humid or cool, it can take a minute or 2 before the lights fire up. (have considered going with HPF, or electronic T12, or even upgrading to electronic/T8)

Lamps are warm-white.

Are there more of these fixtures in this room? Personally, I would of course get HPF rapid start ballasts, or maybe even
the 0 degree HPF magnetic rapid start ballasts, before getting T8 electronic. But hey that's personal preference. lol These fixtures
look very cool and definitely rare. I've never seen these kind before this picture... unless the basement hallway ones are identical
but they don't look to be.

Interests
1. Motorcycles, Women, and Lighting (especially fluorescent)
2. Weighting/staying extremely athletic
3. Severe Thunderstorms of all kinds
4. Food and drinks. So gimme them bbq ribs
Yep
Lighting has been a passion of mine since I was born. I consider everyone on LG to be a friend

@suzukir122:
Only the 2, its a small room. T8 is ofcourse more efficient, but these don't get many hours, so that doesn't matter much . I have both T8 electronic, & T12 RS HPF ballasts sitting around already, so could easily go either way (at one point I'd even set a pair of HPF RS in that room, but not sure where they're at now)
These are just 1x4 troffers. The wood frames are something I put around them, just to try & make it look a bit better.

The basement hallway ones are shoplights up above the grid. I'll post an inside pic of one of those sometime.

Thanks

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

Would also be neat to fit them with three lamps per fixtures and have the outer/centre lamps on separate switches to get three light levels out of these lights.

Yep I've thought about it! If I had a way (without tearing up the ceiling) I would convert to T8 and do exactly that 6500k in the center, 3000k in the outer.
