LED Vapor Tight Linear Lighting Solve the problem of Humidity

There are few things more annoying than a fluorescent light that hums, buzzes, or flickers incessantly. In fact, studies have shown that the flicker effect from fluorescent lights coupled with the UV radiation they give off can be detrimental to the eyes over time and cause fatigue (not to mention all that annoyance leading to stress). Sometimes it’s simply a matter of replacing old ballasts or bulbs. However, sometimes the main culprit is in the air all around you. Its name is humidity.

How does humidity effect fluorescent light performance?

Fluorescent bulbs themselves are hermetically sealed, meaning no humidity can ebter the bulbs themselves. This seal has a two-fold function in that it keeps moisture out, but also works to keep mercury inside. High humididty; however, can effect the ends of the bulbs, specifically the metal contact points that transmit electricity by interrupting the flow. As humidity stays constant it begins to corrode the metal contact points of the bulb and subsequently the fluorescent light begins to flicker incessantly or have trouble turning on. Sometimes simple taking the bulb out of the fixture and wiping the ends with a cloth will be enough to get to start operating normally. However, there are more permanent solutions that will save you time, frustration, and money in the long run.
