About Halogen Bulbs

Incandescent light bulbs have been the standard choice for lighting for decades, but if you would like a brighter, whiter light throughout your home, you may want to consider upgrading to halogen bulbs. If you compare the price of a standard 50W incandescent bulb to a 50W halogen bulb, you will likely find that the halogen is more expensive; however, the average lifespan of an incandescent bulb is 750 to 1,250 hours, whereas the halogen light bulb lasts on average 2,000 to 2,500 hours. So if you compare the lifespans, you will likely find that the cost for a halogen is more expensive up-front, but cheaper in the long run. You will also find that over time, incandescent bulbs will fade in intensity, but halogen bulbs burn at the same intensity for the duration of their lives. If you would like a brighter, longer-lasting light in your home, consider replacing your bulbs with halogen lights. You can find a large selection of lights in different sizes available on eBay.
