Get A Grip On Lighting: Year of the Warranty Pig

2019 is the Year of the Pig. For the guys at the Get A Grip On Lighting podcast, 2019 is also the year of the “warranty pig.”

In this episode, the Get A Grip On Lighting podcast looks at the lighting that was installed 5 or 6 years ago to see what lighting will fail, and how manufacturers (at least the ones still in business) will back up their warranties.

Greg Ehrich, LC is the former President of the National Association of Innovative Lighting Distributors (NAILD) and owner of Premier Lighting, a progressive lighting distributorship.

Michael Colligan is an entrepreneur and inventor. He’s a subject matter expert in commercial and industrial lighting supply, lighting retrofits, and finding recycling streams for hard-to-recycle waste.

The Get A Grip On Lighting podcast on lightED is sponsored by Keystone Technologies.

    Both of you are against 10 year warranties. Many manufacturers are overdriving the LED’s thus causing premature failures at the cost of making the product cheaper. There are some manufacturers that offer a 10 year warranty, that achieve this by running the driver at 50%.
