I switched to T8’s years ago mostly because of the ability to handle cold weather (0F start because of the ballast). I think the bulbs last much longer. And I have to question whether it makes sense to swap ballasts (the ballasts I have looked at cost a lot more than the entire fixture). Menards sells a nice fixture using 4 4’foot tubes and I prefer hauling them over 8’ tubes.
