An advantage of halogen lamps is the increase in lamp life and performance: based on the mains voltage, a halogen bulb can last 2 to 5 times longer than a traditional incandescent lamp.
Also the energy savings that can be achieved with the use of halogen lamps is considerable: in fact, these latter often work even at very low voltages and are sold with a transformer, which allows the voltage to be lowered to normal electric current as shown in Lighting Audit in Texas.
Halogen lamps are recommended for both domestic and professional use. They are often used in museums and galleries to illuminate high quality paintings and objects and can be used in cars, on stages, as desk lamps or to illuminate high design furniture. Halogen lamps in the home can be managed using a dimmer that regulates the intensity of the light and allows you to enhance specific points in the home.
Halogen lamps are available on the market in the most varied shapes and sizes, drop-shaped, sphere-shaped, twisted, candle-shaped and can be purchased in the best shops and online stores.
Since halogen lamps must reach very high temperatures, the glass that forms their bulb is a quartz glass, more resistant to heat but more delicate: in this regard it is recommended not to touch the bulb with your hands, since the natural oiliness of the skin could alter the thermal capacity of the glass and cause harmful overheating or even breakage, but to handle the lamps with a soft cloth, perhaps soaked in alcohol at 90 degrees. Another precaution is not to touch the lamps when they are on, as the temperatures that can be reached during operation are too high.
When buying a halogen lamp, it is necessary to pay attention to both the lamp and the structure on which it is to be used. This problem does not exist in the case of wall lamps or spotlights, but in the case of desk lamps or floor lamps stability is fundamental: due to the delicacy of the glass, it is necessary to choose stable objects, which can easily withstand small bumps and stresses.
Before buying a halogen lamp or conducting a Lighting Audit in Texas, it is advisable to ask for it to be screened correctly, ie that it has double insulation, which is useful to reduce the risk of electric shocks: if the first insulation fails, the second will act as a reserve. In the case of purchase of a floor lamp it is also essential that it has the earthing system.
