Halo­gen light bulbs con­tain a fil­a­ment en­closed in halo­gen gas, so they can burn hot­ter and pro­duce a sim­i­lar light qual­ity to tra­di­tional light­bulbs

– but use 25 to 30 per cent less en­ergy ✔ In­stant warm soft light – ideal for ar­eas such as stairs and bath­rooms

✔ Halo­gens can be used with a dim­mer switch

✘ It’s the least ef­fi­cient type of en­ergy-sav­ing bulb and won’t re­duce your en­ergy bills as much as an LED or CFL

✘ It has a rel­a­tively short life­span of

ap­prox­i­mately 2,000 hours

✘ It is be­com­ing in­creas­ingly hard to ac­quire after the EU put a man­u­fac­tur­ing ban on them in Septem­ber 2018
