UK will ban the halogen bulbs from September

Although the power is large, the halogen lamp generates more heat, which makes the environmental protection of the halogen lamp inferior to that of the LED lamp. The withdrawal of the halogen lamp from the stage of history is also the general trend. According to media reports on June 9, the British government will submit a bill this month, deciding to ban the sale of halogen bulbs from September.

UK will ban the halogen bulbs from September

Halogen bulbs are widely used as spotlights in kitchens and living rooms. However, starting in 2018, the United Kingdom, which was still a member of the European Union at the time, followed EU regulations and began to gradually reduce the use of halogen bulbs and promote low-energy LED bulbs. At present, LED bulb sales have occupied two-thirds of the UK market.

The British government claims that stopping the use of halogen bulbs will reduce the UK’s carbon emissions by 1.26 million tons every year.

Halogen bulbs are a waste of energy. According to the Energy Conservation Trust Fund, an ordinary halogen bulb consumes about 11 pounds of electricity per year, while a replacement LED only consumes 2 pounds. More importantly, halogen bulbs usually fail after about two years of use, while LEDs can last 15 to 20 years under the same usage conditions.

In addition, a 60-watt light bulb emits approximately 700 lumens of brightness, while a 100-watt light bulb is equivalent to more than 1,300 lumens. But stores still mark LED lights mainly in watts; 8.5w "classic" LED bulbs are equivalent to 75w incandescent bulbs, and 13.5w LEDs are equivalent to 100w old-style bulbs.
