Mercury Vapor Lighting
Many know mercury vapor lighting as the workhorse lights that lit streets and highways starting at the beginning of the last century. Over time mercury vapor lights came under scrutiny due to concerns about their energy efficiency and environmental friendliness. Since 2008, the import or manufacturing of mercury vapor ballast has been prohibited but the lamps themselves are allowed to remain in service. As Mercury Vapor lights burn out, they are required to be replaced. If you have mercury vapor lighting that needs replacement, call Add-All electric for information on our LED Replacement lighting.
High Pressure Sodium Lights vs LED
High pressure sodium lights, a type of high-intensity discharge (HID) gas discharge lamp, became popular at the middle of last century and were once the standard in streetlights and parking lot lighting. Still in use today, high pressure sodium lights have good efficiency compared to their predecessor (the low-pressure sodium light) and they last longer (14,000 hours). But high-pressure sodium lights take between 15 and 20 minutes to come on full-strength. LED lights, comparatively, have no warm-up time and reach maximum brightness instantly. And while high pressure sodium lights can last for 14,000 hours, LED lights can last from 50,000 to 100,000 hours or more. Additionally, LED lights are extremely energy efficient. Today, we repair and maintain high-pressure sodium lights, but many companies are asking us to replace their high-pressure sodium lights with an LED replacement.
Metal Halide Lighting
In the 1960’s, metal halide lighting was introduced. Metal halide lights are also a type of HID lamp.They are similar to mercury vapor lighting because mercury is used, but the mercury is mixed with metal bromides which make the light brighter.
When metal halide lights were introduced, they not only provided brighter light, they improved efficiency. Because brighter lights make safer areas, metal halide was used often in parking lot lights.
Metal halide lights do have drawbacks. Like high pressure sodium lights, they take 15-20 minutes to get to full brightness. This means you need to know exactly when you need the light and turn the lights on 15-20 minutes earlier. This is not necessarily a problem if your lights are used regularly at the same time, but it causes a problem when there is a power outage. Because of this drawback, many companies are asking us to perform a HID LED retrofit.

- LED lighting comes on instantly. There is no warm-up time.
