Can you recycle halogen light bulbs?
Halogen light bulbs are a type of incandescent light bulbs and are filled with a halogen gas. The halogen gas gives the bulbs a longer life than traditional incandescent bulbs because it helps redeposit the evaporated tungsten back to the filament. Halogen light bulbs are not the same thing as compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL bulbs), which have mercury inside and are often subject to state or local disposal regulations. Also, halogen light bulbs are not recyclable like CFL bulbs are.

Open up the hood, and go in behind the fixture where the light is located. Sometimes there is an access panel on top. Open it and reach down inside and grab the bulb's socket. Twist the socket a quarter turn counter clockwise, and pull out the socket. Grab the bulb, and pull it straight out. To repl…ace the new bulb, never touch it with your bare fingers, as this will greatly shorten the bulb's life, if it even work's at all. Use a tissue or something else in that order to handle the new bulb. Push the new bulb into the socket, put the socket back into the housing, and twist a quarter turn clockwise to secure the socket into the fixture (MORE)
Answer . \nIt shouldn't. The only thing that should click should be the switch when you energize the circuit although I have seen instances where arcing produced clicking sounds due to loose connection between the bulb and the contact terminal.
Answer . \nthere is a plastic clip that holds in the bulb on the back side of the headlight under the hood, its a circular clip that turns either way and on some vehicles you have to take the whole fixture out(like a 2000 ford taurus) then the bulb comes out of the headlight assembly and has an …o-ring that seals the water out and holds the beam in (MORE)
Halogen light bulbs are used because: . they can be operated at a higher temperature than can be used for ordinary light bulbs. This results in less heat production compared to light output and an overall much higher efficiency in the conversion of the energy which is input - electrical energ…y - to the energy which is output as visible light. and . they have a significantly longer useful life than ordinary incandescent light bulbs. Technical note The invention of halogen lamps was based on the discovery of a special physical feature: when small amounts of a halogen gas were added to the contents of the light bulb, these were found to help to return large quantities of evaporated tungsten atoms back to the filament. This resulted in a significantly longer lifetime of such lamps. General note about how all incandescent filament light bulbs operate An electrical current travelling through the filament of a light bulb makes it glow white-hot and generate both light and heat because of the electrical resistance of the filament. The filament is normally mounted within a special mixture of noble and/or inert gases held inside the glass enclosure of the light bulb, held at a pressure which is close to a vacuum. The special mixture of gases prevents the filament from oxidizing and burning away, which would happen extremely quickly if it glowed white-hot in normal air which contains oxygen. (MORE)
Filipino's answer . because halogen bulbs contained noble gases like neon, argon, helium etc.. it react and emits light when it is applied by an electric current.
Answer . PAR is a outside rated light bulb - R is a indoor rated light bulb. PAR30 = outdoor flood bulb (spot light) R30 = indoor flood bulb (recess can). From MBT lighting & Sound. They are a commercial lighting group. I'm not sure about the indoor (R) / outdoor (PAR) differentiation poste…d above but the number after PAR refers to the diameter of the bulb. PAR30 would have a 3-3/4" diameter. I verified several PAR sizes. The below explanation is correct:. "No, PAR is not referring to the golf game; PAR (Parabolic Aluminized Reflector) is actually the description of the lamp or bulb that goes inside a PAR can. The can is the container where the PAR lamp or bulb goes. The number beside PAR is a measurement that describes the diameter of the PAR lamp or bulb. To figure out the diameter, divide the number next to PAR by eight. For example, if you have a PAR64, divide 64 by 8 and you will have an 8-inch diameter lamp. PAR56 has a 7-inch diameter lamp, and PAR46 has a 5.75-inch diameter lamp, and so on. The diameter of the PAR lamp is useful to know when ordering a replacement lamp." (MORE)

What can be done about stopping halogen lights from working intermittently if you wiggle the bulb they work but then stop working?
I was at Napa the other day and I got Halogen headlights for my car the man that was serving me told me DO NOT touch the bulb with your skin as the oils from our skin can make Halogen bulbs not work (they may work for a bit and then stop). Maybe try replacing the bulb without touching it. (wear some… mits or something I know lamps can be a pain) (MORE)
With great care not to touch it with your fingers!. If you do touch the glass with your bare fingers you must clean off the oil using clean industrial alcohol - pink methylated spirits - and clean off the oil thoroughly with a clean dry cotton cloth before you install it, otherwise the bulb will fa…il in a few hours of use.. Most people don't know this, even electricians - and their newly-installed halogen bulbs burn out within a few days, depending how often they are switched on and off.. The reason is that the natural oils on your skin stay on the surface of the special glass used in these bulbs. The intense heat causes the oils to react with the glass chemically and the result is that the glass gradually gets eaten away. Some air eventually gets into the bulb and the filament burns out. So when you install a new halogen bulb always take care to hold it with a clean piece of non-fluffy cotton - a clean cotton handkerchief is ideal. Never ever hold it with your bare fingers.. As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed. . Before you do any work yourself, on electrical circuits, equipment or appliances, always use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized. IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY SURE YOU CAN DO THIS JOB SAFELY AND COMPETENTLY REFER THIS WORK TO QUALIFIED PROFESSIONALS. (MORE)
Incandescent bulbs are not practical to recycle. There is not enough recyclable material in an incandescent bulb.

Yes, many kinds of light bulbs should be recycled. Traditional fluorescent bulbs (the long tube bulbs) and compact fluorescent bulbs contain mercury and should be recycled. Many towns or cities have programs to recycle these bulbs. Or, you can return the used bulbs to the place you bought it and …they will recycle it for you (for example, Home Depot has a program for recycling bulbs). Traditional incandescent bulbs do not need to be recycled. . (MORE)
PROVIDED. that the power of a halogen light bulb is not more than the maximum power rating of its lamp holder or light fitting AND . that lamp holder or light fitting is of a type suitable for its location and application to provide light, . it should not be dangerous to leave a halogen light… bulb "on" for several hours. In other words if a light fitting is rated at 150 Watts maximum the rated power of the halogen bulb used in that fitting must never exceed 150 Watts. As for any light bulb, if it were too powerful for its lamp holder or light fitting, there would be a serious risk of overheating. In other words, if a light fitting is rated at 100 Watts maximum and a halogen bulb rated at 150 Watts is used in it, there will be a serious risk of overheating which would lead to:. premature bulb failure as the least consequence and . catching on fire - leading to a house fire - as the worst consequence. . As for any light bulb within any overall long period of time, if it were left on for a greater rather than a lesser percentage of that time, there would be two key consequences:. it would reach its rated service lifetime more quickly and would therefore have to be replaced more often during that overall long period of time; . it would consume more electricity and would therefore cost more money to run during that overall long period of time.

Speaking from experience working with theatre lighting, it may shorten the life of the bulb or even cause immediate failure, even if your hands are relatively clean after freshly washing with soap. Usually, touching a cold halogen bulb--where even the smallest amount of oil from your skin is left o…n the bulb--can often cause the bulb to overheat when lit and then quickly burn out, or else it may shorten the life. Halogen bulbs burn much hotter than conventional incandescent bulbs, so the heat must be allowed to escape as designed. (ever felt the heat over a torchiere floor lamp, or seen it fry inscects?) Oil prevents the thin layer of glass from allowing heat to escape properly, so it can be affected by even the slightest amount of oil. Thus, if you touch a cold halogen bulb with your fingers, be sure to clean it gently & throughly with rubbing alcohol and a clean cloth before use. (MORE)
Average figures: Incandescent: 10 lumens per watt Halogen 13 lumens per watt CFL (low-energy) 50 lumens per watt
the trick to changing a halogen lightbulb is to not touch the bulb itself with bare hands. The oil from your skin will cause it to burn out prematurally. Use a cotton rag or a new pair of gloves to replace the bulb.
A halogen bulb is an incandecent bulb with a filament made from tungsten which is contained within an inert gas and a small amount of a halogen such as bromine or more comonly iodine. The halogen gas combined with the tungsten filament produces a chemical reaction known as a halogen cycle which incr…eases the lifetime of the filament and prevents blackening of the inside of the bulb by redepositing tungsten from the inside of the bulb back onto the filament. This means it is more effciant. (MORE)
If you are referring to the small two inch lamps that usually are associated with track lighting, they just pull straight out. On the back of the lamp reflector assembly there are two small straight pins. When the lamp is pushed in it is held there by friction fit.

Halogen bulbs have filament like standard incandescent bulbs. When unused, the filament will appear silvery and clean. After use the filament may discolour.
Yes ,unless the product mfg says no. Most dimmers handle both, but you should check it if you have a dimmer switch on the light. Just remember that they can get hotter,so depending on what kind of fixture it is,watch the extra heat.
Halogen bulbs are a type of incandescent bulb that is more efficient than coventional incandescent bulbs. They use about 20% less electrical power to produce equal brightness. Fluorescent bulbs use about 80% less power than coventional incandescent bulbs
A 20 watt incandesent bulb is dim. For a medium sized room you need 100 watts. A 20 watt halogen bulb is brighter but still quite dim. These are marketed as low-energy but they are not. For a medium sized room you need 80 watts. A 20 watt fluorescent bulb can light a medium sized room quite bright…ly. This is a genuine low energy bulb. (MORE)
Because if you touch it, you may get dirt or oils from your skin on the bulb. Since halogen bulbs operate at a much higher temperature than conventional bulbs, the contaminants may cause the bulb to break. If you do touch the bulb, clean it with an alcohol swab before installing it.
Incandescent lightbulbs operate by heating a tungsten (carbon originally) filament to incandescence. At these temperatures, some tungsten is 'cooked off' the filament and some of this tungsten is deposited on the glass envelope of the bulb causing it to darken as it is used. Halogen bulbs have a hal…ogen gas in the bulb which 'encourages' the vapourised tungsten to redeposit on the filament which keeps the bulb's envelope clear which allows more light to pass through. Since the filament is not continually losing tungsten, it lasts longer. (MORE)
From 20,000 to 23,000 lumens depending on the brand. Average figures: Incandescent: 10 lumens per watt Halogen 13 lumens per watt CFL (low-energy) 50 lumens per watt
Halogen bulbs are filled with iodine or bromine gas, which prolongs the filament's life by reducing tungsten evaporation. A standard halogen bulb lasts about 3,000 hours at 25 lumens-per-watt
What is the closest comparison to determine if a 10 watt halogen bulb will be enough light in outdoor lighting?
No, it will not be. You will need at least a 50 watt halogen foroutdoor lighting.
A halogen bulb gives about 25% more light than an incandescent bulbof the same power in watts. So eight 40W incandescents can bereplaced by six 40W halogens. CFL bulbs produce 5 times more light for the same power, thereforeeight 40W incandescents can also be replaced by two 40W CFLs.
No, halogens produce only about 30% more light than incandescents,so a 35 watt halogen is equivalent brightness to a 45 wattincandescent.
Too much heat is usually the culprit. However, in rare cases it could be a faulty power source.
"Halogen bulbs have a longer life and better illumination than incandescent bulbs. They are compact in size, and dimmable unlike flourescent bulbs. Halogen IR (infrared) bulbs use less electricity, also."
You can do that if the voltage and the socket are right, but thehalogen bulb would need to be about 3 times the power to give equalillumination.
BR stands for Bulk Reflector, that are traditionally for incandescent reflector lamps, not halogen Par lamps, which mean Parabolic Aluminized Reflector.
Which among the following is most energy efficient incandescent build fluorescent tube compact fluorescent light bulb halogen bulb?
Incandescent produces about 10 lumens of light per watt of electricity Halogen produces about 13 lumens per watt Fluorescent and CFL produce about 50 lumens per watt So Fluorescent is the most efficient.
Can you use a low energy G9 40W bulb in a light fitting that states a maximum of 25W G9 normal halogen bulb?
The heat dissipation is what the fixture is rated for. They are saying maximum heat of 25 watts so 40 watts is going to be too much.
The cost of a halogen light bulb can vary in cost depending on the wattage of the bulb and the store it was purchased from. A bulb can range from $2.00 to over $10.00 per bulb.
Broken or burned out CFL or halogen bulbs can sometimes be recycled at community recycling facilities. Many stores offer in-store recycling as well, including ACE Hardware,Home Depot, TrueValue hardware stores and IKEA.
You can but you can only do it at special recycling boxes. Your local Lowes or Home Depot might have one
Halogen lamps are also known as quartz iodine lamps. Halogen light bulbs can be purchased at a number of hardware stores including Lowes and Home Depot.
No, Xenon arc lamps usually contain mercury, and other dangerous chemicals and gases, usually under extremely high pressures too, even when the lamp is cold.
Sure. You can also set fire to the pants you're wearing at the timewhile you're at it. They're about equally good ideas. A lamp that's rated for 60 watts has been determined to be safewhen used with a bulb of that wattage. Higher wattage bulbs,especially halogen bulbs, are likely quite a bit hotter… than thelamp was designed to withstand ... and that's ignoring the factthat the wiring was designed for currents appropriate for a 60-wattload, and quadrupling that is going to overload them and may evencause them to short out and/or catch fire. Because I'm not absolutely certain that anyone who would think thiscould possibly work out okay will pick up on the subtlenuances here ... Do not ever use a bulb of a wattage higher than thefixture is rated for. (MORE)
Yes, the halogen bulb would provide about 30% more brightness(lumens) for the same electric power rating. So 70 watt halogen isabout equal to 90-100 watt incandescent.
When you turn on the switch to the bulb and no light is emitted, the majority of the time, it is the bulb that is no good.
Inside a tungsten-halogen bulb, electrons flow through a tungstenfilament. The filament heats up and emits light.
