Halogen or LED? That's a question. Despite usually costing more than six times as much as halogens, the payback for LEDs now comes in 15 months or less and for homeowners changing dozens of halogen bulbs, the savings can be in the hundreds of pounds every year afterwards.Besides, LED bulbs come with advertised lifetimes of 10,000 hours and up, compared to the typical 1,000-hour lifetime of hot-running halogen bulbs.

LEDs are semiconductors that make old-fashioned lightbulbs (incandescents) and even "energy savers" (compact fluorescents) look incredibly inefficient. A typical 35W halogen replacement LED will use as little as 4W, considerably less than the 10W or so a CFL would use to produce the same level of light. They also have the advantage of being "instant-on" and do not suffer from warming up slowly like some CFL replacements for halogens.

When replacing halogens with 5W GU10 fittings (two small circles),they are ideal to let your place shine.

I just replace 2 GU10 led bulbs in bathroom and 1 dimmable bulb for my lounge. You can take action now and start saving energy and enviromment.
