LED has become more and more popular to use and transform lighting as we know. LED is more energy efficient, lasts longer and are more Eco friendly, but some assume that LED is seen as more expensive. So let's take a look at the difference between halogen and LED lighting.

LED has become more and more popular to use and transform lighting as we know. LED is more energy efficient, lasts longer and are more Eco friendly, but some assume that LED is seen as more expensive. So let's take a look at the difference between halogen and LED lighting.

Halogen bulb was a step up from the old traditional incandescent bulbs, the difference is Halogen consists of gases inside the glass such as bromine or iodine. This type of gas ignites the filament to become hotter than with an incandescent bulb, this transformers a larger part of the energy into the light thus having a longer life span than an incandescent bulb. The efficiency of a halogen bulb is approximately 15 – 20% higher than a normal light bulb.

LED stands for “light-emitting diodes”, LED works through an electronic semiconductor component which emits light when an electric current passes through the throughput. However, the benefits of an LED is huge. A single LED bulb can make as much as 15% of energy as traditional bulb but it is 8-10 times more energy efficient and economical than a halogen bulb. In comparison, halogen is cheaper to purchase but LED is much more energy efficient and lasts much longer, so the minimum life expectancy of an LED bulb is 15,000 hours compared to a halogen which is only 2000 hours. So if you really think about it, it is all down to the actual sum of purchase + energy consumption/burning hours + maintenance and you will see that LED actually saves you more money than halogen in the long run.
