Ballasts help regulate the current that the lamps need to properly function while ensuring that proper voltage is being directed. It works by briefly supplying high voltage to form an arc between the electrodes inside of the light where the ballast quickly regulates the current to produce a steady output of light.
Our electricians can remove an old ballast and install a new ballast to provide your home with the lighting that you need.
