Still undecided about whether to replace your halogen downlights with LED?

If you’re not sure whether replacing halogen downlights with LED lighting is worth the trouble, Energy Makeovers want to show you how it’s actually no trouble at all. In fact, when it comes to halogen light vs LED lighting, LED wins hands down every time. But don’t just take our word for it, let’s look at some of the facts.

LED lighting uses less energy than halogen lights

Did you know that if you have 20 halogen downlights in your home, they’ll be costing you over $300 a year in your lighting bill? In comparison, 8W LED lights are just as bright as your 50W halogen lights, but use up to 88% less power. To put it simply: if you choose to replace 20 of your halogen lights with 20 LED lights, you could save up to $300 per annum, over the lifetime of your new lighting.

LED lights last almost 12 times as long as halogen downlights

In terms of longevity, the average 50W halogen downlight lasts between 12 and 15 months. Compare that to an 8W LED which can last anything up to 12 years! Now you can see the long-term benefits of LED vs halogen bulbs. And just think, you won’t need to be climbing up and down ladders changing bulbs every year.

LED downlights vs Halogen downlights: There’s no comparison when it comes to temperature

Unless you’re planning to heat your home with halogen bulbs, the 300 or so degrees of heat these bulbs throw out is not an advantage at all. There’s the potential danger of the overheating, not to mention the damage you could do to yourself if you touched them accidently. As LED bulbs are up to 73% cooler than their halogen counterparts, we know which lighting we’d rather have in our homes.

Halogen vs LED: the conclusions

LED lighting is the most up-to-date form of lighting for residential, commercial and government properties. LED bulbs are reliable, long-lasting, safe, and perform every bit as well as halogen lighting. But more than that, LED lighting is the eco-friendly option for responsible consumers as it uses far less energy than its halogen counterparts.
