3 Reasons why you should switch track lighting from Halogen/Incandescent to LED

For a long time, track lighting has been a popular choice for restaurants, offices, shops, window displays and various spaces where recessed ceiling lighting cannot be installed. It has a wide range of uses. It can be used as accent lighting or task lighting, and it is easy to adjust so that the lighting can keep up with changing displays and spatial layouts. It can also create a dramatic atmosphere or blend into the background.
Track lighting has also relied on halogen lamps or incandescent bulbs for a long time. These lamps generate heat during operation, burn out quickly and consume a lot of energy during use. Modern track light heads offer a significantly improved option: LED technology.
Benefits of LED track lights
  • Troublesome Endless bulb replacement
Time is money in business. The more we can eliminate unnecessary tasks, the more time our employees can spend on productive, profitable tasks. Incandescent lamps have an average lifespan of around 1,000 hours. Halogen lamps last between 450 and 1,000 hours. If your halogen track lights operate 14 hours a day - not uncommon for a restaurant or shop - replace each of your track lights between 5 and 10 times over a year. Suppose you have 30 track light heads. That is up to 300 times that one of your employees has to climb a ladder every year.
In a contrast, LED track lights have an average lifespan of 50,000 and can usually be used for ten years without the need for bulb replacement or other maintenance. In ten years, our example business above will free ourselves from the trouble of replacing 3,000 halogen bulbs.
  • Excellent Performance
The surface temperature of halogen lamps and incandescent lamps may be nearly three times higher than that of LEDs. This can have a considerable impact on room temperature and increase your cooling costs in warm weather.
Although it may be tempting to suggest high-temperature lighting to supplement the heating system in winter, lighting is much less efficient than the heat source of a specially built HVAC system. It is best to use low-temperature lighting and let the heating system do its job.
  • Proof in the electricity bill
All wasted heat generated by halogen lamps and incandescent bulbs will be credited to your electricity bill. In the example above, those 32W halogen bulbs that run 14 hours a day will add 350 dollars in energy waste to your electricity costs every year.
If you replace halogen bulbs at a price of $150 to $300 per year, then in just two years, how much will you spend to switch to LEDs. The difference is that if this conversion is not carried out, these additional costs will increase year by year. By the end of ten years, you had wasted as much as $4800 on running and replacing 30 halogen bulbs in track lights.
Or you can switch to LED today, and in the long run, it will be one step ahead.
