Do Feit halogen lights emit UV light?
Yes, halogen lamps do emit a small amount of ultraviolet (UV) radiation. The UV emission from halogen lamps is primarily in the near-infrared portion of the UV spectrum. However, the UV output from halogen lamps is significantly lower compared to traditional incandescent lamps or other light sources like sunlight or germicidal lamps.
It's important to note that prolonged exposure to UV radiation can be harmful to the skin and eyes. While the UV emission from halogen lamps is generally minimal, it is still recommended to avoid direct and prolonged exposure to the light emitted by any type of lamp, including halogen lamps. The glass shell, serving as the sole protective barrier, offers minimal protection against UVA wavelengths.
