Downlight Fire Danger!

They are still around.
Halogen downlight cut into trusses.

Have a look at the timber straight above the light. It was starting to get to a crucial level. In this case we discovered it early enough. It was in a bathroom and had only been used for short period of time. I don't wan to imagine if it would have been a kids bedroom!

This is not only an example of bad workmanship, but total loss of common sense. These lights reach temperatures over 300deg, a true fire danger if installed incorrectly, like here.

Do yourself a favour and have all halogen downlight replaced wit LED downlight by a licensed electrician.

Not only will you save your home from a potential fire, these lights only use around 20% of the energy and last years longer.
