The Many Types Of Light Available Today

What's in a light bulb? For most people, an incandescent light bulb comes to mind when discussing "light". The incandescent light bulb has traditionally provided homes with light into the wee hours of the night. Most incandescent bulbs produce life for 750 hours. Not bad for some filament and a glass dome.

As times have changed so too have consumers needs for different types of light. Fortunately researchers have kept up with the demand, creating many different types of bulb to suit almost anyone's needs. Think you need only a traditional light bulb? Think again. Once you discover the endless possibilities, you may change your mind.

New Discoveries in Incandescence

Today consumers can choose from many specialized forms of light bulb. Depending on your needs you will find one that suits you. Here are some of the more common light bulbs available today:

  • Full spectrum light bulbs - These light bulbs produce specialized light called "white light". They may help relieve disorders resulting from inadequate exposure the sunlight. Most produce light at an intensity equal to outdoor daylight.
  • Automotive LED bulbs - Automotive bulbs are specialized bulbs often used in automobiles. These light are the small lights you might see when you turn your signal on in your car.
  • Compact fluorescent light bulbs - Compact bulbs produce a softer light than incandescent bulbs. They also use less electricity and last much longer than standard light bulbs.
  • Halogen light bulbs - Halogen bulbs are expensive but provide more light than traditional bulbs and last much longer. They are good for household lighting needs.
  • Projector light bulbs - Wouldn't you know it, there is a specialty light bulb for everything. These bulbs are of course, for use in projectors.
  • Tanning bed bulbs - Of course tanning bulbs produce ultraviolet rays to help tan the skin. Most beds need up to 30 tanning bulbs.
  • Specialty light bulbs - These include all light bulbs in any category not listed above.

Don't think for a minute however that these choices are the only when it comes to light. There is virtually a light bulb to meet anyone and everyone's needs available on the market today.

Choosing The Right Bulb

If you want a long lasting light for your house, consider the halogen bulb. These bulbs have gained in popularity in recent years. Some people however, prefer fluorescent bulbs. Over time, one can't argue that fluorescent bulbs are more energy efficient than most other bulbs combined. That's why so many offices use them.

Another category mentioned above rapidly gaining popularity are full spectrum light bulbs. These light bulbs are not cheap. However, there are many perks. People often buy these light bulbs to relieve depression, seasonal affective disorder, jet lag and fatigue. Full spectrum light bulbs almost qualify as therapy. In fact, you may even be able to argue with your insurance company to pay for them. (If you can get your doctor to prescribe some full spectrum light for you). These are a good choice if you plan on creating a mini oasis in your home, with light intensity matching that of the sun. Keep in mind however, they are pricey. Many feel the price however, is well worth the investment.

Cheap light bulbs abound however. Cheap light bulbs (the incandescent type) are good for producing an average amount and quality of light. You can buy replacements for these easily and inexpensively. While not durable, they are easy to use and still the most popular choice among consumers today. Let's not forget their many benefits. They are inexpensive, easy to use, run using low voltage, can be battery operated AND come in a variety of shapes, styles and sizes. You really can't beat that when it comes to light bulb value!

So take a moment to review the many bulbs now available on the market. Why not try something new? You may find yourself pleasantly surprised!
