That’s roughly 23,000 hours longer. If you have a home with Halogen down-lights, then you’ll know that there’s always one or two lights that aren’t working. Even though Halogens are meant to last a while, the truth is that the blow far too frequency.
So why do Halogens blow so quickly?
Most indicators point to wiring, but our experience tells us it’s not the wiring at all. Instead it’s the cheap influx of potentially dangerous light bulbs, that find their way into the country through our major resellers. This is frustrating for house-holders as they buy an inferior product through a reputable brand. These customers will have to contend with constantly blown bulbs, which keeps most electricians busy. However at eLighting we’d prefer to do the job once and do it right.
“We provide our customers with only quality New Zealand made LEDs. Lights that last up to 40 times longer than the Halogens that most of our customers had in their homes.” – eLighting
We deal with a steady flow of calls from customers that are worried about the wiring in their homes, because their bulbs simply kept blowing. Replacing the same old light bulbs has become one of our industries biggest revenue earners over the last few years. While LEDs might cost you a bit more up front, they’ll save you roughly $800 a year from your power bills. This of course, doesn’t even factor in the replacement costs and constant call our fees.
According to the Master Electricians Association, the problem with cheaper imported bulbs is far more than just a minor annoyance – it’s a potential safety issue. Therefore changing from these out-dated Halogens, to the latest New Zealand made LEDs is a decision well worth considering.
“However, if your home does have out-dated wiring, then we’ll let you know straight away, as the older Rubber wiring becomes hardened and snaps to expose the Copper inside. This can mean that your house is actually uninsured, therefore up-grading your wiring is the more important task.” – eLighting
Many governments are even in the process of phasing out these types of Halogen light bulbs altogether, in favour of the more efficient and eco-friendly forms of lighting.
