A tanning bed is a great way in order to keep your tan topped up. Even if such a tanning system will be fairly maintenance free, sometimes you will have to repair some of its parts. The usual things you will have to replace include the tanning bed bulbs. Tanning bed bulbs are used in order to produce the necessary UV rays that provide you with the tan you want. Once the tanning bulbs are not working in the proper way or aren’t all working, you will not get a good and even tan. Also, you will find it harder to determine the exact exposure times you need in order to get and maintain a healthy and natural looking tan.
If you purchase the replacement bed bulbs and plan to have them replaced all by yourself, you will have to read the manufacturer’s instructions – do this very carefully because every manufacturer is likely to come with different ways of doing the same thing. For instance, if you have already replaced the tanning bulbs on other tanning bed model, you should not assume that things will work in the same way with your present tanning bed. You have to make sure that your tanning bulbs are the same as the original ones. If you don’t know the exact brand you need, you will have to read the manual that comes with every tanning bed or you may contact the manufacturer in order to get the necessary pieces of information. This is extremely important because not all the tanning bulbs are likely to be the same.
For instance, some tanning bulbs may be more powerful when compared to other tanning bulbs models. This means that you may purchase a tanning bulb that will not be powerful enough for your tanning bed model. So, you will not get the right amount of tanning or you may even get burned. Replacing the tanning bulbs all by yourself isn’t a very difficult job but you have to make sure that you have purchased the right type of tanning bulb that can provide the right amount of power for your tanning bed.
Taking proper care of the tanning bulbs is paramount because the overall functionality of the tanning bed is going to depend on this. A tanning bulb is designed to follow a particular life span as all the other lighting systems do. So, a tanning bulb is not designed to last a lifetime and it will eventually burn out. When you plan to purchase a residential tanning bed , just make sure that you ask about the exact life span of its tanning bulbs. Ask how you can have the tanning bulbs replaced, where to purchase the necessary replacement pieces and how you can take out the UV light.
