Have your halogen light bulbs burned out once again? While halogen lights are highly rated in comparison to other incandescent lamps, many people have begun making the switch from halogen light bulbs to LED lights. At Superior Lighting, we offer both! While some people prefer to stick to their halogen lights, we feel it’s important that consumers know all of their options! Therefore, we have put together an LED replacement guide for halogen light bulbs!
Knowing the Differences between the Two
Before we can guide you into making a decision on your lighting, we feel that it’s important to understand the differences between an LED light bulb and your standard halogen light bulb. A halogen light bulb is an incandescent bulb that uses halogen gas within it to help illuminate your space. Halogen bulbs must operate at higher temperatures in order to achieve the same effect as LED light fixtures. LED light bulbs use light-emitting diodes to produce lights. They are more environmentally friendly than halogen light bulbs and tend to last longer, making them a more cost-effective choice in the long run.
Replacing LED Lights in Halogen Settings
If you’re ready to make the switch and replace your halogen light bulbs with LED lights, there are a couple things to look out for. For the most part, it’s relatively easy. Most halogen light bulbs can easily be replaced. All you need to do is buy the new light bulbs! However, low voltage halogen light bulbs can be a little tricky. These fixtures can sometimes be overpowered because LED lights use a much smaller amount of electricity versus halogen lighting. To figure out this problem, you can easily identify it by looking at the bulbs and checking to see if they are pegs versus pins. If this is the case, it’s likely that you’d need to replace the transformer of your LED bulb with an LED driver.
