Why And When Should I Use Halogen Light Bulbs?
Halogen light bulbs are suitable for settings that require intense, direct light, whether in a natural white, or daylight tone, or in a variety of colored options. This kind of lighting is useful for establishing a tone or atmosphere in a focused setting. Photographers, directors and cinematographers can use halogen light arrangements and systems to create powerful illumination effects, whether on an actor, object, or focused area. Halogen light bulbs also serve as open heating elements that can be used warm a targeted area, such as a reptile tank or on a in a restaurant buffet line. Halogen light bulbs can also be found in both the interior and exterior of cars, and are now frequently used for colored or tinted headlights.

What Are The Dangers Of Halogen Light Bulbs?
Lots of people are concerned with some of risks and dangers associated with halogen bulbs. Unlike compact fluorescents and other light bulbs that contain potentially harmful substances like mercury, halogen bulbs are not regarded as hazardous waste and do not require any special method of disposal. However, most of the danger associated with halogen light bulbs concerns the high temperatures that are emitted while the bulb is lit. If halogens are not installed, and handled properly, they can create fire and burn hazards. If a flammable substance comes into contact with a halogen, it could ignite in just a few seconds.

Halogen bulbs could also cause minor to severe burns if touched. Dangers concerning halogens can be mitigated when they’re placed in proper settings, far from any flammable materials, and handled with the utmost caution and care. When used in equipment or appliances, such as the trunk light in cars or in a projector, any burn or fire hazards can be prevented with the proper fixture casing and shielding, which helps to ensure that materials or skin cannot easily come within direct contact of the halogen bulb.

What’s The Difference Between Halogen Light Bulbs Vs. Incandescent Light Bulbs?
Halogen bulbs are actually a type incandescent light bulb, but a number of key features make them distinct. While both bulb types work by heating a tungsten filament to create light, the gases contained within each bulb are different. These light bulbs are filled with a mixture of argon and nitrogen, and halogen light bulbs contain a halogen gas, such as iodine or bromine. The halogen gasses contribute to a chemical reaction that regenerates evaporated tungsten, which helps to increase the longevity of the bulb’s filament.

Do Halogen Light Bulbs Require Any Special Disposal?
Halogen light bulbs are not deemed to be hazardous waste. Instead of mercury vapor, halogen bulbs contain halogen gases. If the glass of a halogen bulb is broken, the released gas is not  a hazard. Halogen bulbs are not recyclable. Instead, they can be disposed of with regular waste. If the halogen bulb is broken, cautiously collect all pieces of the broken glass, wrapping them in a paper towel or newspaper and enclosing them in a bag. If the halogen has simply burnt out and is intact, turn off the light fixture and wait until the bulb is completely cool before wrapping it in newspaper or its original packaging and throw it in the trash.

Are Halogen Light Bulbs Energy Efficient?
How energy efficient halogen light bulbs are depends on lighting alternatives and the levels of light they produce. Compared to standard light bulbs, halogens offer more powerful, high intensity illumination, and overall longevity. Halogen light bulbs provide 10 to 20% greater energy efficiency than incandescent lights.
