Xenon Low Voltage Lighting
The Xenon Low Voltage Answer to Energy Concerns
Saving energy has become a primary concern these days among all Americans. Rising costs have plagued our wallets and patience, and many people are now looking for alternative methods to save money. One way consumers are cutting back is by turning off light fixtures that are for aesthetics’ rather than necessity. Modern day technology has now advanced in the illumination industry, giving us numerous options, when it comes to using energy efficient devices. One of these options is the implementation of Xenon low voltage fixtures in our homes. Phantom Lighting offers a variety of strip low voltage lighting products using this state of the art technology to help you save money, while illuminating your belongings at the same time.
What is Xenon low voltage lighting and how does it benefit us?
Xenon low voltage illumination is similar to incandescent bulb fixtures except this type of light incorporates the use of Xenon gas in the glass envelope of the lamp. This gas increases the average rated life of the light bulb, which is a measure of the time in which 50% of lamps tend to burn out. Half will burn out before this time and half will burn out after this time period. The rated life of a lamp product does not guarantee that every light fixture will last for the same amount of time. It varies based on what type of illumination device you have, what voltage is supplied to the lamp and whether the light bulb is enclosed or exposed to allow for heat dissipation.
Xenon gas expands the rated life of a light source, so you don’t have to replace your light bulbs on a regular basis. This low voltage light source has a color temperature of 2,800 degrees Kelvin, which ranges in between ordinary incandescent at 2,450 degrees Kelvin and halogen at 3,000 degrees Kelvin. These lamps operate at cooler temperatures than their halogen counterparts and can be dimmed to help you accentuate a certain atmosphere you want to create.
Xenon low voltage lighting fixtures last longer than your typical standard incandescent bulbs and are extremely popular for under cabinet illumination. Incandescent festoon lamps have an average lamp life of 4,000 hours as compared to xenon festoon lamps, which can last up to 20,000 hours. This type of light is fairly safe, as well. A person can actually touch a Xenon low voltage lamp fixture with their bare hands and not interrupt the illumination output of the device. Halogen lamps, due to the high operating temperature, can actually blister and fail from oils off your fingers.
