About Incandescent Light Bulbs


For nearly a century, incandescent light bulbs have been the main way we have lighted our homes. Over the years, the designs of these types of light bulbs have changed to meet the demands of new technology. At Ace, you’ll find a wide selection of incandescent bulbs for all your lighting needs.

Decorative light bulbs, which often have an ornate shape, are most frequently used in lighting fixtures where light bulbs are exposed. The design of decorative light bulbs is meant to compliment the lighting fixture.

Flood light bulbs are often easily identifiable by their thin neck and flat, circular face. These light bulbs are used to provide bright light to a broad area. They’re commonly used to help illuminate dark areas outside the home at night.

Halogen light bulbs still use incandescent light bulb technology; however, they’re filled with a small amount of halogen, which gives the light bulb a longer life and a better color temperature. Keep in mind that halogen light bulbs get hotter than traditional incandescent bulbs, so make sure these bulbs aren’t near anything flammable.

Recent technology has given way to Compact fluorescent (CFLs) and LED light bulbs, both of which are more energy efficient and longer lasting than incandescent light bulbs. Next time you find you have a light bulb out, head over to your local Ace to help with all your lighting needs.
