* Reference is to standard general service incandescent bulbs, and does not pertain to Newcandescent® or Bright Lights American brand rough service bulbs.
Halogen bulbs burn hotter than standard incandescents, so care must be taken in their use. It's possible for the protective outer shell to break and for the inner bulb to continue working (though the outer shells are usually durable). This can pose a hazard, as the hot inner bulb can explode if moisture hits it. Dispose of any damaged bulbs in a closed container. And, as you should do before replacing any bulb, check the light fixture label to make sure a halogen bulb is compatible and within the fixture's listed limits.
