Frequently Asked Question About Salt Lamps
Q1:How it works?
Ans: Just place one in a room and plug it in. Even before the ionization process begins, you’ll be uplifted by the Rock Salt Lamp’s inner glow which is quite transfixing, especially in a darkened room. After twenty minutes, the rock is warm to the touch. Heat is absorbed by the Salt Crystal from a small light bulb discreetly fixed and concealed above its base in a hewn cavity, which adds to its mysterious charms.
Q2: How is the lamp Lighted?
Ans: The lamps usually have 4 watt night light bulb, up to a 40 watt light bulbs with switch or dimmer. There are other models that use tea light candles also.
Q3: How to change the light bulb?
Ans: The light fixture is simply held in the lamp by prongs that spread to hold it up within the lamp, simply unplug the lamp and work the fixture out through the bottom.
Q4: What kind of light bulbs do the lamps take?
Ans: Our light bulbs are all common generic bulbs, ranging in size from a 4 watt night light bulb, up to a 40 watt chandelier bulb. You can usually find our bulbs in most supermarkets, in the same department as the light bulbs, they are usually in packages of several bulbs, hanging on rack, it is best to take the original bulb from the lamp with you, to be sure that you match or find a similar light bulb.
Q5: Can I leave the lamp on all of the time?
Ans: At first leave your lamp on while you are at home, and see if the electrical cord gets warm, if so turn it off. However we have not had the cords heat up, when our lamps are left on for long periods of time, and many of our customers leave theirs on 24 hours a day, without a problem.
Q6: How long will my lamp last?
Ans: It will last forever. The salt used in the production of these lamps itself is 250 million years old, and should last another 250 million years!. Try keeping your lamp out of humid situations, such as out of doors, or near open windows in a humid area and it will last forever. If it gets some humidity, just clean it with a dry cloth and simply leave it on for a while-the heat will be enough to dry up the lamp.
Q7: How will I know if the lamp is actually producing the healthy negative ions?
Ans: Our lamps have been scientifically proven to naturally produce the healthy negative ions, and they have been laboratory tested. Depending on how sensitive you are to your environment, you should notice the effect right away, and more so as time goes by
Q8: What area will my lamp cover effectively, with healthy negative ions?
Ans:Each of our lamps covers a certain amount of space. Following table shows that how many square feet, a certain size of lamp will cover effectively with the healthy negative ions, however even if there are few of the healthy negative ions, you will still derive a benefit from them.
|Weight of salt lamp
|1.1 – 2.2
4.4 – 6.6
8.8 – 13.2
15.4 – 22
39.6 – 55
Q9: Do Salt Lamps reduce in size or loose their ionizing effect over time?
Ans:No, as long as you do not place them in water, over time our Salt lamps will not reduce in size or loose their ionizing effect.
Q10: What size must a Salt Lamp be to give the best results?
Ans.For a room size of 64 square feet, a lamp of about 5-7lbs, for 100 square feet 8-9lbs, 144 square feet a lamp of about 10-12lbs, for 225 square feet 14-20lbs to get the optimum result. You can use several small lamps or tea lights instead as long as they amount to the same respective weight.
Q11: What is there to consider?
Ans: The Lamps are designed for inside use. Keep them away from water. In case a lamp has become wet by accident or has moisture build up simply leave it on for a while-the heat will be enough to dry up the lamp.
Q12: Does the electric bill go up if the lamps stay on all the time?
Ans: The Lamps come with a 15 watt bulb and from our experience with them: we have not noticed the electric bill go up, even with several of them staying lit all the time.
Q13: Is there a difference between quality of salt lamps and why do prices vary?
Ans: This could be huge quality difference between lamps from different suppliers/sellers, because all the crystal lamps are not created equal. There are different grades of salt crystal on the market. Our sorting plant daily processes several tons of salt, of which only about 10% are shipped to us as top quality lights. The Cheaper priced lamps you will find are the lamps we do not and will not bring in. Quality lamps in the long run cost less. Each shipment is subject to in-depth quality control, measured by independent laboratories and approved with test and batch numbers.
Remember there are different qualities of salt products, you can rest assured we have taken all of the necessary steps to bring you the best one. That’s a promise. Your Satisfaction is 100% Guaranteed.
Q14: I was wondering if you have any studies that detail the quantity of negative ions the lamps produce depending on the size and light?
Ans: Yes, all of our lamps are made of Himalayan crystam salt and are tested for best quality. Every lamp emits negative ions. Depending on the size, how each lamp heats, produces a different amount of negative ions. Each lamp heats differently and thus producing different results. We recommend larger lamps or several lamps for larger spaces.
Q15: What is Salt Lamp made up of?
Ans: Salt Lamp is made up of Rock Salt Crystal, a beautiful base, an electric bulb and a high quality electric wire.
