L.E.D. vs Halogen
A light-emitting diode (LED) is a semiconductor device that emits visible light when an electric current passes through it. The LEDs are placed on a circuit board or similar device to allow electricity to pass through at a specific voltage and current. A halogen bulb is a gas-filled, high-intensity incandescent lamp having a tungsten filament and containing a small amount of a halogen that vaporizes on heating and redeposits any evaporated tungsten particles back onto the filament.
Average Life Span (in hours)
Bulb Cost vs Life Span
Initial cost of L.E.D. is 8x the amount of a Halogen version HOWEVER…
L.E.D’s last 250x LONGER
L.E.D’s will SAVE you 28x more
- No Replacing Bulbs.
- Low Amperage Draw.
- Less Downtime.
- Emits heat through the bottom or back – bulb is not hot to touch
- Low amerage draw
- Higher colour temperature – Whiter, brighter light
- Emits heat through bulb – bulb requires cool down time
- Higher amerage draw
- Lower colour temperature – Yellow light
- Generally has a glass lens
