How Long is the Life of a Home Projector
The home projector uses LED light has a long service life. In theory, the life time of this type of LED projector can be more than 20000 hours. If it is the bulb based projectors, the life time will be about 6000 hours on average. And as time goes by, even if the projector can continue to be used, the brightness will never be the same as before, and the brightness will keep being reduced. It it is the laser home projector, the life time will be around more than 20,000 hours and the brightness output is more stable without fading away.
How to prolong the life time of home projectors
- If you want a longer life life of your home projector, you need to ensure that the projector is in a good working environment. The normal operation of ordinary projectors is best at a temperature of 0-40 ℃, and the relative humidity is kept within 10-90%. At the same time, good ventilation and heat dissipation have a great impact on the service life of projectors. In order to ensure that the projector can dissipate heat efficiently, it is not allowed to cover the projector with any object and ensure that the projector is well ventilated within a radius of one meter.
- Good operation habits are also the key to ensure that the projector can be used for a long time. Although the current home projectors can be switched on and off instantly without waiting for the light source to cool down, we still should be carefull anyway. After press the power button of the remote control or the machine to shut it off, do not unplug the power immediately, but wait until the internal cooling fan stops rotating, and then unplug the power.

If too much dust is attached to the projection lens, the clarity of the image will be affected. If too much dust is accumulated in the cooling system or air inlets and outlets, the heat dissipation of the machine will be affected and the service life of the projector will be reduced. Therefore, it is necessary to clean the dust regularly.
In a word, if you want your home projector to have a longer life, you should have a certain understanding of the projector maintenance and develop good operating habits, such as not turning it on and off frequently, cleaning the projector regularly, not blocking the radiator of the projector, and cutting off the power when not in use.
