Halogen Ban To Come Into Effect Next Month

halogen bulbs banned

The month of August is coming to an end, and with it comes the end of an era. Halogen bulbs, which used to be one of the most common types of light bulbs available, are soon to be phased out and removed. There’s a ban coming in soon, and this can only spell good things for the LED bulbs and their popularity. So, without further ado, let’s take a look at them.

Halogen Ban?

If you look at some of the more common bulbs in older offices and buildings, you may see that they’re using halogen bulbs. These are a very common type of bulb, and have been in use for many years now. However, starting from September these bulbs are going to be banned and taken off shelves. Why? Because they’re loud, wasteful and bad for the environment.

And In Their Place?

Of course, this does mean that a lot of places won’t have their usual lighting solutions. Thankfully, LED’s are surging forwards to fill the gap. As many people will know, LED’s are just the better younger brother to the halogen lights. The next generation, so to speak. They have a much better lifespan, a more efficient design, and the outperform the halogen bulbs in pretty much every way. That’s not something that you can just brush under the carpet and ignore.

The fact of the matter is, this ban will really help us as a community. Halogen bulbs are a problem. They’re not efficient, they’re not suitable for a modern environment, and it is about time that they left. This prohibition of halogen bulbs means that the LED can start to grow without any kind of competition. And to be honest, there’s a lot of potential for the LED to grow and develop. 

All of the advantages of the bulbs are obvious, but we’ll recap them for those who aren’t so sure. Obviously, you’ve got a much longer lifespan - the average LED will last 10 years or more, which is really impressive when you consider that there’s a lot of bulbs that can’t even last for one year without problems. Plus, they’re much better for the environment. In a world which is rapidly causing damage to the environment, this kind of characteristic can be really important. We need bulbs which can provide us with a lighting solution that doesn’t impact the environment in quite the same way. 

Overall, the halogen ban can really be a good thing, and it’s important to be ready for it. The time for LED’s is now, especially when there aren’t going to be a lot of alternatives. What we know right now is that the LED bulb is about to become even more common. It’s a change which is going to be pretty crucial for businesses everywhere. Have you already changed your bulbs? If not, taking a look into what LED’s can do for you is so important. You’ll be amazed at the savings, and what they can do for you.
