Halogen Light Bulbs

Halogen light bulbs are available for almost all applications that you can imagine, however customers must ensure that your socket is set up for the high temperatures that halogen bulbs typically operate at. Halogen bulbs will usually operate at temperatures of around 500 degrees fahrenheit, which is hot enough to cause burning to your hand as well as to items that might be touching the halogen bulbs. They provide excellent illumination and lighting for many situations.

If you are planning to convert an existing light socket to halogens from another type of light, customers need to ensure that they have a lighting socket that provides adequate insulation and heat dissipation to avoid fires and melting of components around the halogen light. Many consumers will consider using halogens to illuminate their vehicles, to replace existing lighting systems, such as headlights and bulbs. Special precautions should be taken to ensure that no damage will be caused as a result of using a halogen light bulb in a socket that is not designed to accommodate this type of light bulb.

Since these bulbs burn at such hot temperatures, drivers should ensure that the sockets, wiring, and housing can accomodate the bulb. Melting of these components could cause incorrect aiming of your lights or even short circuits if the insulation around wires breaks down from the heat of the halogens. Check with your dealer to confirm the light bulb that can be used with your vehicle. Your dealer or a reputable garage can assist you with installation of the proper illumination for your car lights, and perhaps recommend other illumination, such as xenon bulbs, if you cannot install Halogen lights.
