Light maintenance advantages of led lights


One of the biggest disadvantages of HID pole lights is that they require a lot of maintenance. The service life of these lamps is 15,000-25,000 hours, which indicates that electrical experts need to replace the lamps frequently, a process that can be laborious and time consuming, taking into account the usual height of the lamps.

In most cases, ballasts should also be replaced when replacing HID lamps, which increases overall maintenance costs.

HID also has a very high lumen depreciation rate, and it sheds a lot of lumens before it reaches the end of its useful life.

In fact, when they reach 50 percent of their life, they may have lost half of their lumens. Their degradation process is also not a simple one, because as their life ends, they begin to change color.

Electrical experts often need to degrade the performance of the bulb as quickly as possible, as many mast-high outdoor locations require maximum lighting.


LEDs have a long service life (50,000 to 100,000 hours), maintain 70% of the lumens throughout their lifetime, do not use ballasts, and do not move shadows as they age. Lighting is usually maintenance-free, and the only maintenance required is cleaning the fixture.
