Goodbye Halogen, Hello LED

Halogen lights. It’s amazing they were ever produced. They are energy hogs, difficult to maintain, a fire hazard, and produce an amazing amount of heat. Florence came with 20—count ’em—20 halogen lights (and I suspect there may be even more that I haven’t found yet.

I decided to swap these out for LED replacements, which allegedly last forever and use 1/12 the energy of the original halogen bulbs.

The replacement, it was actually pretty easy. The two prongs on the replacement LEDs were sometimes a little bit longer than the original halogen lightbulbs, but the fixtures seem to be able to accommodate it.

The light quality is outstanding and other than the energy use, I will probably never notice the difference.
