If I go to T8 single pin lamps with the electronic ballast can I use the same pin sockets.
I've got a number of 8ft T12 fixtures with magnetic ballasts on one branch circuit. I'd like to change to electronic as the magnetic expire (right now just a couple.) I read somewhere a comment that if you mix electronic and magnetic on one circuit the electronic will have a short life. Do you know anything about this?
When I install the new ballasts would it be better to use the T12 or T8? I understand the electronic ballasts are for one or the other.
