Benefits Of Replacing Halogen With LED Retrofits
Keeping up with modern lighting trends is not always something that families do as often as they should. For decades, halogen lights were the thing to have for low voltage outdoor lighting schemes. These days however LEDs have just about replaced them for the reason that hey cost much less to perate and they last a great deal longer. They are also much safer with far less burn out risk. As with all items that get replaced over time, there is no requirement to rip out and replace all halogen bulbs but when retrofitting bulbs with LEDs, it is essential to replace each halogen bulb with equivalent wattage and same base type. For a while the LED replacement bulbs were very expensive but now they are less so and as they use so much less energy and offer up to around 20 to 25 years of life, compared to only 2 or 3 years from a halogen, this seems a trifling concern!
