GAS LAMP CONVERSION
Much SAFER to
operate than a traditional gas fueled lamps.
2. Much CHEAPER
to keep in use dusk to dawn. No more 24-7
3. No need to re-light the mantles if they blow out.
4. It won't stay on 24 hours a day like gas lamps do.
5. Much EASIER
to replace a light bulb than to replace a lantern mantle.
6. 12 volt light bulbs are cheaper than lantern mantles, and
easier to find in stores.
7. You can CUSTOMIZE
your lighting style by using different colors if you like.
8. Low Voltage, NO CITY PERMITS REQUIRED!
gas light has 2 mantles and operates continuously throughout
the year. A low voltage lamp configuration can save you
money on your gas bill, and hardly uses any electricity.
Below you will see a breakdown of typical operating costs.
The average natural gas cost listed below was based on
Arizona gas prices for a 12 month period recorded from 2009:
see the average annual cost to operate a gas lamp. Now
compare that to what it costs to operate the same lamp,
converted to low voltage electricity. The kilowatt-hour
price listed below was based on an Arizona average for 2009

HOW WE INSTALL
manufacturers use plastic for the “T” bar parts - NOT US!
Soldered light bulb center pins are prone to problems like
overheating, which causes early lamp failure. Loose contacts
and corrosion will lead to replacement of the entire “T”
bar. This was the main reason why we started using gaslight
conversion “T” bars.
bar is made of 100% copper, and all connected parts
are soldered by hand. The lamp holders are made of brass,
and the center contact for the lamp is a ceramic insulator
with a brass center contact. Dimensions are 10" tall
by 4" wide. All parts are non-corrosive.
transformer we are using is a UL listed resettable
transformer. It is permanently sealed, and contains a
resettable fusible link which when overloaded will protect
against melting by opening the link inside. Once the unit
has cooled for some time (varies, typically 10-30 minutes)
it will then auto reset itself and will once again be
usable. A green LED indicator light located
on top of the unit displays whenever the unit is
operational. If your transformer trips often, this could be
a sign that you have a short somewhere in the wiring.
lamps used in the "T" bar are standard, 17 watt
automotive light bulbs which can be purchased at any local
hardware or auto part store.
photocell is a sealed resistor which senses light
intensity - it operates as a "dusk-to-dawn" switch,
controlling the power going to the lamps. This is a solid
state device which is very durable.
Landscape Cable that we use is 12 gage
direct burial cable, which is designed to be used for
outdoor low voltage electrical applications. It can be
buried a few inches below the ground to hide it and protect
against the elements and from damage, and can easily and
affordably be replaced should damage or a short of some kind
We offer up to 100 feet of cable, any longer the price is
$2.67 per foot.
