            Comments about Sylvania 18 Watt, 28 Inch T8 Cool White Fluorescent Appliance Bulb:

            I couldn't find this size bulb at retail, and the electric supply store claimed they couldn't find it. So after 3 frustrating weeks, I checked bulbs.com. It was available and less expensive than the store was quoting (if they could have found it). Bulbs arrived in excellent condition in a couple of days. Perfect!

                A:

                This bulb measures approximately 28" including the pins. Most of the F25T8's available are 36" in length. There is an F25T12/CW/28 that is an appliance bulb and measures 28". If the lamp that is currently being used is in fact a T8, we would suggest contacting our customer service department (888-455-2800) to determine the correct replacement bulb.
