THE DANGEROUS AND PROBLEMS WITH HALOGEN LIGHTS

 

Big disaster with halogen down lights

If you have old lighting inside your home or inside your property you may want to consider the idea of getting electrician in so that you can reduce the risk factors with halogen down lights. Halogen down lights represent one of the greatest risks for fire in Perth Australia. Many homeowners that still have these lights installed inside their properties may not realise just how dangerous they may be.

Halogen down lights were considered a fairly modern feature for homes throughout the early 2000 because they were fairly low cost and they were available with excellent accessibility. With so many Australians that installed these items themselves, there are many unregulated lights across Perth Australia that have never been properly inspected by an electrician. While utilising the services of a company like Metro Electrical 24 Hour Electricians, we can help to make sure that your older haulage and lighting can be properly inspected and potentially rewired if it is not to code.

The big risk is that this type of lighting can easily burn it over 250°C which can be an intense risk for fire. Generally these are designed to be installed far away from any type of building material. If any portion of the light bulb comes in contact with building materials like insulation or the timber in the building construction, this could lead to potential disaster.

It’s important not to put yourself or your family members at risk if you feel as though you could have these lights! Working with an electrical contractor can be one of the best ways to identify them and swap them out. If you suspect that you could have some of these lights inside your property and you would like a full replacement service completed, contact our staff today at Metro Electrical 24 Hour Electricians and we can make arrangements to come out to your location and swap out halogen down lights for your needs.
