Types of Light Bulbs
We offer a wide selection of different light bulb styles that are suitable for indoor and outdoor lighting solutions. Explore the benefits of each to find reliable lighting for any residential or commercial space.
- Incandescent: The traditional style for light bulbs, incandescent bulbs use a heated filament that glows to produce light. While certain fixtures specifically require incandescent bulbs, many are being phased out in favor of more energy-efficient designs.
- LED: If you’re tired of frequently replacing your light bulbs, pick LEDs. These light bulbs are known for long life and energy efficiency. A typical LED bulb can last up to 22 years and uses about 85 percent less energy than traditional incandescent lighting, making them a green energy option that's great for saving money.
- Fluorescent/Compact Fluorescent (CFL) Bulbs:Fluorescent and compact fluorescent bulbs are a popular energy-saving option because of their long lifespan and low input power. Both CFL and LED bulbs produce no heat, making them a safer choice around kids, pets and heat-sensitive equipment.
- Halogen: Like incandescent bulbs, halogen bulbs use a heated filament to produce light. However, halogens typically require less input energy than traditional incandescent bulbs, making them a more cost-efficient and energy-efficient choice.
- High-Intensity Discharge (HID) Bulbs: HID bulbs emit a large amount of visible light, making them popular for warehouses, gymnasiums and other large spaces. They use sodium or mercury rather than a filament, giving them a longer lifespan than incandescent bulbs.
Light Bulb Features
Once you've chosen the best type of light bulb, make sure your bulb offers the right features for your needs. Match your bulb wattage to your lighting fixture, then customize your space with the perfect brightness and color.
- Watts: Wattage measures the amount of input energy needed to power your light. Make sure that your lightbulb wattage matches your fixture to get the most from each bulb.
- Lumens: Lumens measure the amount of light that a bulb emits. The higher the lumens, the brighter the light. Keep in mind that some bulb types, like LEDs and CFLs, can produce the same number of lumens as traditional incandescent bulbs but require lower input energy.
- Indoor/Outdoor: When you're shopping for outdoor lighting, remember to check the bulb package to make sure your lightbulb is certified for safe use outdoors. Some types can be used in both indoor and outdoor fixtures, while others are specially designed for extra durability and weather resistance.
- Color: Light bulbs typically come in four standard colors: white, warm white, bright white and daylight. We also offer bright colors like red and yellow to create a unique look.
- Dimming: Some lighting fixtures offer a dimming feature to customize the mood in your space. Check the packaging of your LED bulbs to make sure they're compatible with your dimmer switch.
