Hallway lighting
« on: September 28, 2020, 07:11:56 pm »
I've three light fittings illuminating my hallway.
They're flat circular affairs, somewhat akin to portholes, each has a brace of candle-shaped LED lamps within.
One of the fittings is noticeably dimmer than the other two.
What might be the reason for this?

It's most likely a difference in the lamps. LED lamps will reduce their brightness over time, and they may not be consistent to start with.

Dirt on the bulbs or the fittings is possible.

Assuming similar lamps, could one be running warmer due to position/orientation, causing the lamps to lose brightness more rapidly?
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

You could be standing further away from it?

Get the multimeter out and check for a voltage drop. If that's fine then it's the bulbs.
