How Fluorescent Lights Work
Fluorescent light bulbs aren’t really light bulbs at all. Instead, they’re long tubes that contain gas which glows when electricity is applied. Regulating the amount of electrical current that flows through the tube is a ballast, which basically acts as a resistor to prevent the fluorescent tube from getting too much electricity and potentially being damaged. Ballasts typically last between 40,000 and 100,000 hours, making them extremely reliable. If the fluorescent lights in your building are starting to flicker and you need ballast replacement in the Silver Spring, MD area, contact Kolb Electric!
