Are you ready for the Halogen Ban?

Did you know that all halogen bulbs will be banned across the EU in September 2018? This is a great step forward for energy saving as it means the end of high lighting bills, inefficient technology and a massive 15.2 million tonne reduction in Europe’s carbon footprint by 2025.

Will this have a big impact on the planet?

What replaces Halogen bulbs?

Different lights – different efficiencies

What does this change mean to the home owner?

Firstly LED lighting offers a longer life with bulbs and diodes offering an outstanding operational life time expectation of up to 100,000 hours. This is 11 years of continuous operation, or 22 years of 50% operation.

 

Secondly, traditional incandescent light bulbs operate at 20% energy efficiency only, so 80% of the electricity is lost as heat. The long operational life time of LED acts as a multiplicator and help to achieve even more energy efficiency, so you can make significant energy savings.

 

 

Principal application engineer at Lutron Dr Ian Rowbottom explains

“Dimming your lights even 20% saves nearly 20% in energy. Dimming them more, saves even more.”
