Protect Your Skin and Your House by Converting Halogen Lighting to Fluorescent

Author: Steve Hanson

The history of light has not reached its end as of yet. In fact, it has been revolutionized by the new compact fluorescent bulbs now in the market. These new fluorescent bulbs give consumers an alternative to the old halogen light bulbs. Halogen light bulbs are variants of the original incandescent light bulb invented by Thomas Edison. Like incandescent bulbs, halogen bulbs are outdated and grossly inefficient. They are also very hazardous, although they are cheap and therefore convenient; they have the ability to create costly damages.

How Halogen Bulbs Work

The reason halogen bulbs are so ineffective and dangerous is in how they make energy. Like incandescent bulbs, they generate energy to create light. The problem, however, is that all the energy they create is not used effectively. Most of the energy created actually causes the bulb to emanate heat reaching extreme temperatures, which can cause burns or even ignite fires, instead of being used for lighting purposes. This in turns means that most of the energy used is wasted, dangerous, and ineffective.

Fluorescent Bulbs Solve the Issues of Halogens

The fluorescent bulb on the other hand solves all three issues. Compact fluorescent bulbs do not use heat to produce lighting but instead use a variety of gasses and electricity. This in turn means that they don't heat up as much as their counterparts and are safer to use. In fact, several Universities have opted to use these bulbs over the halogen bulbs to prevent accidents.

Not only do these bulbs produce light more effectively but they are more cost effective. Their initial cost may be higher but their long term cost saves money in the end. For example, a halogen bulb can last up to two years whereas fluorescent bulbs have a life of up to five years! It seems well worth it to invest in fluorescent bulbs over the highly inefficient halogen and incandescent bulbs.

Weighing the Pros and Cons

When the two bulbs are compared, it becomes obvious which one is superior. Yet, as life has it, everything does have its advantages and disadvantages. The fluorescent bulb does hold one consequence: mercury. One of the gasses found in these bulbs is mercury, a contaminant. To this one problem, the fluorescent bulb has two pros though, by being more energy efficient it should reduce the amount of mercury production and can serve as an option to going green, a step to prevent global warming.

It seems as though there are trade-offs to either scenario, but when you factor in all the environmental benefits, monetary and energy saving benefits, and the safety benefits, I think you will agree that fluorescent light bulbs are the lighting technology of the future.

    1st I’ve got to see those pics. Also how long you’ve been lighting your skin, and what was your reasons
    Do you feel more pretty sience you lighten your skin? I ask because sometimes I feel like if I were a little lighter I would be prettier, but at the same time I have to remind myself that beauty isn’t color it’s facial features that make people pretty. Also,are you just lighting your face or your whole body? If so do you have a natural look and do your skin have an even tone all over?

    What cream is good for lighting your skin to your natural tone?
    everytime i go to a pool or to the beach, no matter if i just go to the water for an hour, i get really tan and then it takes me years to go back to my natural tone. well, it happened again and from a medium tan i went to a deeper color. so can anyone tell me a cream that lightens up to your natural tone,that is not very expensive and that i can buy at anyplace other than online?

      If you don’t want to tan, you should be using a sun block everytime you are going to be out in the sun.

      I don’t know of any all-over fading creams. Porcelana makes one for the face, and you can buy it in your local drugstore.

    what to do when your skin lighting creamegives you dark patches?

    • fairlady says:

      You are not applying evenly on skin. Try to apply the cream on damp skin, it will glide smoothly and evenly. Wear a high spf sunscreen when outdoors. The absence of sunscreen can also cause dark patches.
