Next Level Health and Fitness located in St. Clair Shores, Michigan, has selected 4' LED Tubes made by Lumerica's predecessor, LumaSmart, to upgrade its interior Fluorescent lighting. Next Level's 7,000 sf facility located on Mack Avenue was one of the first locations to install the Lumerica LED Tube Retrofit Kits. Two Lumerica LED Tubes, which draw 36 watts of electricity, can replace Four T8 or T12 Fluorescent Tubes. Co-Owner Don Jaeger explains: " We replaced our old 4' T12 fluorescent lights with the new Lumerica LED Tubes. Our old system used 144 watts per fixture, now we are down to 36 watts each, and I have seen a huge saving in our electricity bills. I used to be changing fluorescent lamps all the time, now we will be maintenance free and I will not have to touch them for almost ten years". Co-Owner Mike Fox added, " Our light quality has improved too, it is more even and the colors seem more natural. I watch my clients like a hawk and now I can easily count my clients reps from across the room....no more cheating in our gym".
