Common Problems with Halogen Downlight - LED Downlights

Last updated by ecofinsolutionsforu

These are the following common problems:  

  • Lower light output: Halogen downlights consume huge power and convert most of it (over 90%) into heat, leading to lower light output. This makes them highly inefficient. High heat emission makes them susceptible to fire hazards.
  • Risk of fire: The heat emitted from halogen bulbs not only increases the temperature of a place but also risks of household/workplace fire. On the other hand, LEDs stay cool because they don’t have a filament unlike in halogen bulbs.
  • Shorter lifespan: Halogen downlights have a shorter lifespan as compared to LED downlights. Halogen downlights last 2,000 hours whereas LED downlights last up to 10 years, which means you won’t have to bother changing them for a long time. A thin filament inside the halogen downlights blows out quite frequently, thus a small lifespan.
  • Environmental impact: As mentioned above, halogen bulbs consume very high energy in comparison to LED lights. Plus their lifespan is shorter, this means more waste going to landfills, more bulbs being produced and more energy used in production.
