Types of Light Bulbs
Incandescent Light Bulbs:
The most popular type of general purpose indoor bulbs purchased today, the incandescent lamp can be found in most lighting fixtures and in every room in the home. From 4-watt night lights to 250-watt security flood lights, standard soft white to color enhancing, we have a broad selection of shapes, wattages and voltages. Incandescent bulbs have the least expensive purchase price and are available in energy-efficient, long-life and shatter-resistant varieties. Specialty incandescent lamps shaped like a candle flame are perfect for chandeliers; some even create movement and emulate the flickering flame of true candlelight.
Fluorescent Light Bulbs:
A fluorescent is not just a bare “shop light” anymore. Fluorescent lamps are available in many shapes and sizes for any room and provide a brighter light, high efficiency and increased longevity. From compact 3-way fluorescents that screw in standard lamp sockets to dimmable color-enhancing fluorescents, there is a fluorescent bulb for any lighting situation. Fluorescent lamps use up to 80 percent less energy than an incandescent and have a lifespan nearly 20 times as long -up to an eight-year life for some models. Fluorescent bulbs are available in a variety of shades from a warm bright white to a cool diffused white and can be found in instant-on, flicker-free varieties. Compact fluorescent lights are sized to replace standard incandescents in lamps and lighting fixtures to increase energy savings and bulb life. For greater safety, some fluorescent models are manufactured to be shatter-resistant. Fluorescent bulbs are perfect for hard-to-reach lighting fixtures.
Halogen Light Bulbs:
Halogens are ideal for accent lighting, desk lamps and outdoor security lighting. Extremely energy efficient, halogen lamps provide more light for the same energy cost - lasting up to three times longer than standard incandescent bulbs. The bright white light generated by halogen flood bulbs and spotlights lend themselves perfectly to recessed lighting and track lighting. Because the beam can be accurately directed, low voltage halogens are an excellent choice for lighting artwork or for emphasizing a focal point in a room. Outdoors, halogen bulbs are effective for hard-to-reach security lighting and landscape lighting because of their longevity and energy efficiency.
