How often should I change out my T5HO Bulbs?

Just curious as to the recommended lifespan of the T5 HO bulb? I've had mine running about 8 hours a day since March of last year.

Thanks everyone. I think the location is about 1hr 15 min away from home. I think I'll just clean it thoroughly when I get home and start from scratch. I need to incorporate some Purigen anyways.
