What We Recommend
HID commercial lightbulbs were a very popular solution for many years and still exist in many businesses and homes. At Lighting Solutions, we strongly recommend the removal of these bulbs because of their inefficiency and the safety risks they cause. When cracked, these bulbs can cause skin damage. Not only does this leave your employees vulnerable to harm, it also threatens the longevity and security of your business. Our LED solutions are guaranteed to utilize better technology and will offer greater benefits to your business.
Both HID lighting and LED bulbs are popular choices because of their high-energy efficiency. Although there is more research going into improving LED bulbs, they both produce over 100 lumens per watt, which means they are great performers. However, their performance varies in that HID bulbs take time to warm up while LED fixtures can be switched on and off easily. HID solutions require frequent maintenance because of the weak lambing and ballasts while LED bulbs require virtually zero maintenance. The LED bulbs themselves also perform better than HID bulbs.
Just One More Reason
One big difference in the two bulb types is their durability. LED lights are strong enough to withstand a variety of conditions and can even be used outdoors. In contrast, HID bulbs have many parts and are made of glass which makes them fragile. The strength of LED contributes to its long lifespan. With a longer lifespan, businesses find there is reduced time spent performing maintenance and replacing bulbs when using LED bulbs. There are 50,000 estimated hours in the life of LED bulbs while the life of HID lighting solutions is closer to 25,000 hours.
