Caution with Halogen Bulbs

The fire at the Quebec City armoury is considered have been caused by a halogen bulb “forgotten lit. Gold, at home, we have our share of routine use of such lamps which, moreover, are major producers of heat. So use them with caution. As is the case for a round of stove or heater in operation. In fact, any combustible material, as well as our body, must get in touch with them. In these conditions, they are easy to live.

“Whether it’s a lamp on rail, beam, recessed, flare or reading, we have to implement everything so that no curtain or other fabric comes close ‘, warns David Provencher, consultant at Multi-Luminaire, in Lévis. Including those that it has installed outside. Any combustible material, again, must be kept at a distance.

These lamps, usually of great delicacy and introduced inside, produce a light of choice who dress well the décor. But they cannot do without producing a heat that often reaches the 200 ° C, sometimes 500 ° C. It’s hot. Enough to put the fire if you’re not careful.

Despite the technology-wiki, says resources natural Canada, their light output is identical to a regular incandescent light bulb “while consuming 40% less energy”. Not to mention a longer useful lifetime.

“But believe that they are large energy consumers is a myth”, finds Daniel Cloutier Cantin & son, Saint-Vallier Street.

“They do not consume beyond their wattage. Whether 10 or 50”, he says. David Provencher abounds in the same direction.

However, he should use them with caution. A workshop of 500 watt lamp, which is used to light a room of the House painted, can heat, Brown, or even a piece of wood nearby calcine.

Daniel Cloutier remembers using one for the repair, a winter’s night of his snow blower. His machine was well lit and there was therefore no cold hands. “Eventually, I realized that the plastic blower fuel tank was deformed. The lamp had still been too close”, he recalls. In short, one does not trifle with the halogen.

Packaging

On the packaging of the halogen bulbs found in-store manufacturers spare no warnings. “Keep away from liquids and combustible or likely dry or discolor… materials To avoid burns, cut the power supply and allow to cool before replacing bulb. We can use only in fixtures to the wattage and the corresponding voltage’, read essentially. This is serious.

“Halogen lamps should not be oriented directly on surfaces, since the heat could burn sensitive subjects, like human skin or delicate tissue,” corroborates resources natural Canada.

A halogen Torchiere, whose light is directed at the ceiling, usually comes a 300 watt bulb. As a result, his energy expenditure is considerable and the warmth of 260 ° C. “But the [dimmer] rheostat, usually integrated into the luminaire, is likely to weigh and the consumption of electricity and heat”, agrees Mr. Provencher.

Piece of Linen

Ghislaine Lemieux is Captain in the Quebec City Fire Department. This seems unlikely, she notes, but it shows: people are going to cover a blister of a piece of linen to Dim the light and create the atmosphere. “Never to do. The risk of fire is great,”she says. Even with a standard incandescent light bulb.

Then, she calls for the purchase of products approved or endorsed, for example by the Canadian Agency of standardization. “And absolutely granting employment that is made to the recommendations of the manufacturer”, Ensign, for its part, the Insurance Bureau of Canada, by the care of his public affairs consultant, Anne Morin.

And don’t think you’re unable to install lights embedded in your kitchen, under the eaves of your House by yourself, or elsewhere. “This is the case of an electrician”, insists Captain Lemieux.

If a recessed lamp, in its upper and lateral parts, touches another object, it shall be fitted with a thermal box. “It’s a must,” says David Provencher. Not to mention that the bulbs need to be mounted on frames of porcelain or receptacles (sockets) resistant to very high temperatures.
