J or type T 120V halogen - LED replacement

  [vote for,

Current halogen living room lamps are 300 watt type, which (if you have 2 of them) burns 600 watts (that's almost have the amount of a small heater). I like LED replacement bulbs for standard outlets, but can't find one for halogen floor lamps, so this would use LEDs to illuminate the living room, for a fraction of the cost.

600 is not almost half of 600 http://www.fixya.co..._mini_quartz_heater

       When you say cost, do you mean total cost including how much 'leccy you'll save over the lifetime of the lamp, or how much it costs to buy one?

       //burns 600 watts (that's almost have the amount of a small heater)//   

       Do you mean it's almost half the amount, or it has (as in, having) almost the same amount? I ask because there are a lot of 600-watt heaters out there.

       Many of the large torchierre types intended to light a room with a single one are 300W. Of course it is already possible to buy identical lamps with fluorescent tubes. I'm not sure about LED yet, as the economical LED bulbs tend to be for low volume point lighting at this point.

       I also find myself wondering why you would need a lamp with such a large bulb. My entire living room (and it's a decent-sized room) is covered just fine with 3 13-watt fluorescents. Most of the time I only run one lamp with a single 13-watt bulb, and it lights it up just fine by itself when I don't mind it being a little dimmer than daytime.

       my heater burns at 1500W; the bulbs in my lamp are 300W each (there are others at lower watts, but this is what mine has); I'm looking for something drastically less, not just a little less

       //my heater burns at 1500W//   

       You do know LED's produce very little heat ? I guess you do, but "heat pump heater" is probably worth googling.   

       LED's offer much better economy for lighting but are a bit more of an investment. How about a new light fixture to go with them ?
