Spot lights are very important lighting fixtures for both residential lighting and commercial lighting. Among various spot lights, halogen spot lights and LED spot lights are the most popular ones.
Although the halogen spotlight is the most used spotlight in the market, LED spotlights will surely take over it in the near feature considering about the energy efficiency, longer life time, environment friendly etc.
Halogen spot lights are energy swallowing monsters with high wattage.On the contrary,LED Spot lights need very low wattage to produce a high level of lumens / light output.in other words, they have very high efficacy. For example while a LED spot lights emit 450 Lumens light output, the halogen spotlight use 40 watts energy. Longer life time of LED spotlights is also a advantage of LED Spot lights.The average life span of a LED light is around 50,000hours, while the service time of the incandescent light bulb is only 1,200 hours.
LED spot lights also defeat halogen spot lights in many other ways. The heat generation of LED spot lights is extremely low, which makes it perfect for illuminating objects that are sensitive to heat. But halogen spotlights produce excessive heat which is undesirable to human skin and inflammable materials. There are chances for valuable materials to get damaged if lit up with halogen spotlights. All of these defects are completely eliminated if LED spotlights are used for illuminating such materials.
Environment friendly is also one of the most important advantages of LED spot lights. Halogen spotlights emit high amount of ultra violet radiations which are harmful if exposed for a long time. By using LED spot lights means Lower environmental pollution. Take 30 bulbs per year of LED spot lights and halogen spotlights for instance, the Carbon Dioxide of LED Spot lights emitted are 451 pounds/year, while the Carbon Dioxide LED halogen spot lights emitted are 4500 pounds/year! Also, these kinds of spotlights cannot be used for illuminating food items as it cause contamination because of the ultra violet radiations.
With all of those features of LED spot lights, that is why the reason you should replace the halogen spot lights to LED spotlights.
