Why Are There So Many Different Light Bulbs?
There are many different types of light bulbs. Each has its own uses and requirements. Some can save you some extra money because they are energy efficient. There are also many different brands. You can also often find discount light bulbs to save some money. Learning the differences will help you choose what is right for you.
If you are looking for something that is brighter and produces a more powerful light, halogen light bulbs are the way to go. Fluorescent light bulbs do not burn as hot as others and are more energy efficient. These last much longer then halogen. Full spectrum light bulbs are just regular light bulbs that produce white light. They are not the most energy efficient on the market. LED light bulbs are the small indicator lights often found on remote controls and other sensor operated electronics.
While each type of light bulb has its uses, they are often made by several manufactures. Many of them are well known brands. Some include GE Light Bulbs, Phillips Light Bulbs, and Sylvania Light Bulbs. You can often find discount light bulbs as well in many discount department stores. You can find most of these light bulbs in any department store.
Whenever you need to purchase a light bulb, check the product you are currently using or the manufactures guide to make sure you purchase the correct one. Many have different watts or powers and buying ones that are too powerful can burn your appliance out or not work properly. Some bulbs get very hot, therefore cannot be used with plastics or fabrics that could melt or catch fire. Also, handle these bulbs carefully as they can cause serious burns.
Research the light bulbs you will be using before using them. Know their safety standards. Also know what to expect from them energy wise. Many can cause high expenses if used wrong. Doing these simple things can keep you and your loved ones safe.
