A good energy choice …“And it looks like a gaslight”
USPTO PATENT Number: US 20070201228 A1
We use 24 volts to power the 2 bulbs in series: 12v+12v=24v. Guides are offered in each conversion kit, however, homeowners may exercise the option of hiring a professional installer through Charm-Lite or hiring an independent contractor. Consumers may also consult our website or call the Charm-lite helpline for additional information and advice. Consumers, when considering installation options, should consider individual home environments and conditions. A professional may be necessary.
Why Low-Voltage and not 110 Volt?
...Standard 110v bulb sockets act like a cup, trapping moisture caused by a well-ventilated gas lamp head corroding the socket and blowing bulbs when activated.
The Charm-Lite inverted bulb socket repels moisture. Bulb sockets made of Copper improve bulb life by dispersing bulb heat while simulating a two-mantel gaslight avoiding corrosion rain or shine.
...At 110 volts, a short will energize the yard light, giving the danger of a shock if touched.
NEC and UL require all 110 volt lamp heads must be NEMA approved fixtures.
Low 24 Volt is safe and easy to install. You just plug it in! No Lic. required.
You also have a choice of LED bulbs with choices in brightness for a 50% discount. We highly recommend you take advantage of the LED bulbs as they last over 5 years and cost less than $4 per year in electricity. They are all a warm white in color rendering with that "Looks like a Gas Light" woof and warp of a gas mantle. You will need to order gas caps, plugs, and wire, separately.
The copper will patina. We use inhibitors to slow the process so your bulb tree will age over a lifetime to a beautiful old world finish. Comes with a standard 1.5" all threaded mount or upgrade to extended 3" threads necessary for a boulevard lamp available upon request.
