In Residential Applications



Are your customers using energy-efficient lighting controls? Replacing old wall light switches with new energy-efficient dimmer switches or occupancy sensors will greatly reduce electrical consumption by reducing the overall brightness of light sources when full brightness is not required.

The age of T12 magnetic ballasts is coming to an end. The Department of Energy (DOE) Ballast Ruling that became effective in 2005 prevents the manufacture of magnetic replacement ballasts sold through electrical distribution after July 1, 2010.



Advance offers a full line of electronic options that exceed the DOE performance requirements for T12 ballasts. Reliable and energy-efficient, they offer proven performance and fast payback of investment based on the up to 30%* energy savings they drive relative to their standard magnetic counterparts. Not to mention the potential tax deductions (now extended to 2013) that may be available.
