While the candle was used for a main source of interior light for hundreds
of years, the invention of light bulbs has made using light inside much
easier. Today, there are many different kinds of light bulbs. Everything
from soft light, to colored light, to bright halogen
lights are used in various different lamps and ceiling
lights. Deciding on which light bulb to purchase depends solely on
what kind the light will take. Most lights use a 60 watt
light bulb, which provides just enough light to see comfortably.
Some lights can use up to 100 watts or higher, but be sure you know what
your light can handle before buying a bulb this bright.
Other lamps and lights use
stronger powered light bulbs such as halogen. Halogen provides a long-lasting, bright light
that focuses the light on certain areas.
Other forms of light bulbs include outdoor lighting such as floodlights. Floodlights are
mainly used to light up a front or back
porch, and can allow you to see outside at night. Motion light bulbs
can also be purchased. These special bulbs are made to activate whenever
any kind of motion is detected, and can be a great source of security.
Many porch lights are motion activated to save
energy. With technology developing new forms of light bulbs all the
time, it’s easier now than ever to find some that are much more
energy efficient, saving you a lot of money on your power bill. Colored
light bulbs can add pizzazz and personality to any room. Look for
pretty pastel colored
bulbs in shades such as pink, yellow, and even blue. No matter what
kind of light bulb you use, you can be sure it will provide plenty of
light to read, eat, or spend time with the family by and produce hours
of wonderful illumination.
