Till now you might know about the normal electric light bulbs which you use in your houses. The normal lamp is large, thin and is made up of frosted glass envelop. Inside the glass there is gas like the argon and nitrogen. At the center there is tungsten filament. The normal light bulbs are not much efficient as it last only for 750 to 1000 hours. Moreover when the light is radiated with that it also radiates the heat and the heat energy gets wasted. So instead of that the halogen lighting should be used.
Working of halogen lights
The halogen lamp also uses the filament of tungsten but it is in quartz envelope. The gas inside the glass is of different kind and of halogen group. This gas gets combined with the tungsten vapor. If the temperature gets too high then the halogen gas combines with the tungsten atoms and they redeposit into the filament. This is the recycling process which makes the life of halogen lights longer. The halogen bulbs are stronger than the normal bulbs and it contains high pressure.
Halogen lights are better than fluorescent lights
Halogen lighting is the lights which are replacing the white LED lights and the fluorescent lights. The halogen lighting is better because the halogen lamps are light weight and smaller as compared to other lamps. It takes low cost to produce the halogen lamps. The CFL and fluorescent lamps contain mercury which is not present n the halogen lamps. The temperature is better used in the halogen lamps and it last for longer time than the conventional lights. The lights are received fast and with full brightness and the halogen lights have no warm up time. Make sure that you stay away from the halogen lights as they are extremely hot and can cause severe burns.
Application of halogen lights
The halogen lights are commonly used as the portable lights in the film and television productions. Nowadays the halogen lighting has become popular in house also but in smaller wattage. The halogen track light is used to provide the quality light in specific areas of house like the kitchen and food preparation area, paintings, and it is also used for mood lighting. The halogen lighting is fully dimmable and they consume less energy and thus last for longer time. The halogen lights are also used in the exterior parts of house to highlight the house. In the outer side the wattage of lights is high.
