Why Not CFL?

­Since announcing the proposed ban on incandescent bulbs, the Government has widely supported Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFL) as a suggested replacement.

They can be purchased today from any supermarket.

However, while CFL’s last several times longer than a conventional lamp, they also contain Mercury. The presence of Mercury may create difficult and expensive long-term disposal and recycling issues.


Why not Halogen?

90% of the energy emitted by a halogen downlight is in the form of heat, not light.

Halogen lamps are believed by many consumers to be economical to run due to their low-voltage operation. However, this is a common misconception. They do in fact consume an excessive amount of energy and operate at such a high temperature (around 300 degrees Celsius) that they are proven to have caused 57 house fires in Victoria alone during an 18 month period. In NSW, 75 fires have been attributed to halogen lamps in the past 5 years.
