Do Hue lights burn out?

Answered by Willie Powers

Hue lights, like any other light bulb, will eventually burn out and need to be replaced. However, one of the main benefits of Philips Hue bulbs is their long lifespan. On average, a Hue light bulb can last up to 25,000 hours. This means that if you use the bulb for an average of three hours per day, it could last you over 22 years!

The lifespan of a Hue bulb is based on its average usage. The more hours per day the bulb is used, the shorter its lifespan will be. For example, if you use the Hue bulb for six hours per day, it would last around 11 years. If you only use it for one hour per day, it could last up to 67 years! Of course, these numbers are based on averages, and individual bulbs may vary slightly.

It’s important to note that the lifespan of a Hue bulb is not affected by turning it on and off frequently. Unlike traditional incandescent bulbs, which can have their lifespan reduced by frequent switching, Hue bulbs are designed to handle frequent on/off cycles without any negative impact on their longevity.

In my personal experience, I’ve been using Hue bulbs in my home for several years now, and I have yet to have one burn out on me. I have them installed in various rooms and use them for different amounts of time each day, and they have been very reliable.

The lifespan of a Philips Hue light bulb is impressive, and it can save you money and hassle in the long run. With an average lifespan of 25,000 hours, you won’t need to worry about replacing them as frequently as traditional bulbs. So, while Hue bulbs do eventually burn out, you can expect them to last for many years before needing to be replaced.
