I have several wall light fitings in which I have halogen bulbs 12 in all. I find that they are frequently failing and I have to replace them. By that I mean that I will be replacing 2 to 4 bulbs per month. I accept that they could be crap bulbs but someone has suggested that it may be a fault with the electrics. I am fairly clued up on electrics and cannot see that being the being the problem but am prepared to listen to anyone with suggestions.
Misty, that is my next move, in fact I have ordered led bulbs today. Tried all sorts of bulbs in the past. never had a problem with incandescent in the past but they do use a lot more energy. Replace one occassionaly, yes but not a regular thing. Also tried the mini flourescent super saver bulbs which apart from looking hideous, despite their claims of "equivalent to" I found them very poor (You should get a free white stick with them) Time to try the latest technology hoping that it is not as dissapointing as some previous options.
I have found that some types of bulb holders are more prone to Halogen bulb failures that others, I have noticed that short life is more so where the holder covers almost up the face of the bulb, these bulbs seem to work at a much higher temperature and I assume that this is the reason that they have a shorter life.
