When the humidity is high (and when isn't it in West Virginia?) my fluorescent lights fail to come on. They will try and will be on sort of, and after a long time they may actually work. This isn't a problem during the winter when the house is dry, or when the A/C is on. Note: the lights have quick-start ballasts. My question: is a component weak or is this the nature of humidity and fluorescent? Thanks.
