You were clear. What isn't clear is what do the new LED bulb drop in
replacements do with the ballast still being there. I presume they have
some way of ignoring it.
Don. www.donwiss.com (e-mail link at home page bottom).
All a ballast is is a transformer to raise the line voltage and a current
limiter to prevent the fluorescent bulb from creating a direct short. The LED
drops will just have an internal step down transformer. They lose a little
efficiency from the step up/step down process compared to line voltage LEDs that
just step down.
He removed everything back to the wires comming out of the wall. The
ballast and tube holders and everything else is in the trash can.
He put up a new fixture . Like I just did in my basement. All I did was
mount the new fixture and hook up the 3 wires. Hot,neutral, ground.
