Hello, how long on average are your ati bulbs lasting on your unit? I'm referring to the non dimmable unit.

Thanks

My 6 bulb fixture gets changed about every 12 months.

Why not longer if you keep them cool with fans blowing across them?

Standard practice has been 10-12 months for properly cooled T5 bulbs.

There is a very good chance that we can go over 18 months and closer to 24. BRS is running a test currently to watch PAR and spectrum changes over so many hours. Early results are showing we are changing too often.
