I just installed some new Lithonia 8' high output fluorescent fixtures in my
shop and noticed after a couple day's use that one of them has quite a noisy
hum coming from it's ballast. Would I be correct in assuming that a new
light shouldn't have a noisy ballast? Any input is appreciated.
My experience is that these lights do have noisy ballast. Not as bad as
some, but still they are not what I would call quiet. However I'm keeping
mine. I like the light. If I need a replacement I will try to find
something with electronic ballast.
Verify that they are grounded properly. This can be an issue with some
HO and VHO have never been noted for being quiet. That is why they are
usually mounted in areas that it is not an issue.
Do they quiet down after they get warm?
