Better Lighting. Better Energy. Better World

Why do some of my lights not work properly when it gets really hot or cold outside?

The original relays used an oil‐based lubricant which overtime can accumulate dust and cause the relay to stick in extreme temperatures. The relays do not operate well below freezing or in high temperatures. For an immediate fix to this problem, replace the existing relay(s) having temperature related issues. Newer replacement relays do not use the oil‐base lubricant which should eliminate most of the problems. To completely remove this vulnerability, the system should be upgraded and relocated to a controlled environment.
