What you should know about HID bulbs

  • HID bulbs are used for many applications, including warehouse lighting, parking garage lighting, outdoor stadium lighting, street lights, and headlights.

  • They produce a substantial amount of ultraviolet (UV) radiation that can be damaging to skin, eyes, and fabric.

  • Due to the large amount of energy that passes through it, the ballast necessary for creating the arc often wears out quickly.

  • HID bulbs are fragile and contain mercury. They should be recycled, and bulb contents should be sealed if they are broken.

  • These lights can take anywhere from several seconds up to 10 minutes before they reach full brightness, and they need time to cool after being switched off before they can be turned on again.

  • They pose a risk for explosions and fires and can reach temperatures that make them unsafe to touch.


What you should know about LEDs

  • LEDs run much cooler than HID bulbs and don’t require high running temperatures to work properly, which greatly increases their longevity and enables them to function in cold temperatures.

  • Unless an LED light is specifically infrared (IR) or ultraviolet (UV), it produces little to no IR or UV radiation, which can be damaging to skin, eyes, and fabrics.

  • They can last up to 50,000 hours—three times longer than HID bulbs and fixtures.

  • Power consumption is the lowest compared to all other lighting technologies - 80 percent less than HID bulbs.

  • LED lights contain no mercury, harmful gasses, or toxins.

  • Many of these bulbs are shatterproof and shock resistant.

  • They illuminate instantly unlike HID bulbs that can take several minutes to reach full brightness.

  • LED lights require higher initial investment but are the best value due to energy savings and longer life spans.

  • They are available in many different colors and variations of white.

  • Because of their low power consumption, LED lights are great alternative lighting solutions for solar-powered systems.
