Arcadia Support Portal :: Do the Arcadia D3+ high output T5 lamps emit more heat than a T8 lamp of the same length?

Do the Arcadia D3+ high output T5 lamps emit more heat than a T8 lamp of the same length?

A. Yes high output T5 lamp emits more energy in light, UV and heat than a T8 lamp of similar size and wattage. This must be factored into the total thermo system that you have provided. The use of a stat controlled heat source is essential in maintaining a good, safe thermo gradient. If the stat is set up correctly and the system is running properly you will notice that the T5s are helping with the general heating of the enclosure and the stat should be on very slightly less. This could end up saving you money on the total running costs of the enclosure long term.
