Government Halogen Lamp Replacement
Every family should start to pay attention. The Australian government halogen light replacement scheme has officially banned this kind of lighting. The latest Australian government regulation: starting in September 2010, the use of halogen light is prohibited throughout Australia.
So why should the government ban halogen downlights?
You must know that many houses in Australia now use this kind of lamp to illuminate. The reason is that halogen spotlights have two major drawbacks.
1. Very short life span
As a kind of incandescent lamp, the average life of halogen spotlight is only one year.
The lifespan of a better quality LED lamp is 5-15 times longer than it.
In this way, it will cost a lot of money to replace the bulb every year.
2. Too much electricity
The data shows that the power consumption of halogen spotlights is 4 times that of LED lights, or even higher!
In other words, the same is lighting, if you use halogen spotlights, 4 times the power resources will be wasted.
In other words, if the electricity bill for an LED lamp is $10, then if you use halogen spotlights, it will cost $40. The Australian government predicts that if everyone replaces these lights with LED lights or energy-saving lamps, it can save Australians 1.48 billion Australian dollars in electricity bills in the next 10 years.
