Vorfreude® halogen bulbs emit intense light and have more illuminating power than other conventional light bulbs. These are highly efficient, and can outlast traditional commercial bulbs by as much as 400%. Many homes and industries today prefer halogen bulbs because of their energy saving feature. The main illuminating component of a halogen light bulb is a thin wire filament which is heated by electricity and in turn produces a bright, white light.
Here are some tips on how to replace halogen light bulbs safely:
* When Removing Halogen Light Bulbs
1 - Make sure to turn off the lighting fixture, or unplug it from its electrical source before you start.
2 - Do not immediately remove the light bulb after use: allow at least a full ten minutes for it to cool before removing it.
3 - When your light bulb housing uses a heat guard or other protective covering, carefully detach it first, then set aside later for reattachment.
4 - When removing bulbs, grasp them gently but firmly. We recommend using a cloth rag or glove for added protection.
* When Installing a New Halogen Light Bulb
1 - Follow manufacturer's recommendations on the type of halogen light bulb to use for your lighting fixture.
2 - Use cloth gloves when handling new halogen light bulbs. Our hands contain oils that can be transferred to bulb surfaces which can cause overheating and premature bulb failure.
3 - When installing new light bulbs, make sure they are at room temperature. There is a risk of explosion once the switch is turned on, if you install a cold bulb.
