Which is the most popular type of light bulb currently in use? If you immediately thought of the incandescent light bulb, you are correct. This model is inexpensive, efficient, suitable for use with dimmers, and comes in a plethora of styles and colors. It is fair to say that there is an incandescent bulb for any type of fixture. Whether you need A, B, BR, CA or G types, there is an incandescent option that fits the fixture.
Selecting the Right Incandescent Light Bulb for Your Home’s Lighting Needs
A 60 watt incandescent light bulb emits about 450 lumens. The higher you go with the wattage, the more brightness – or lumens – the bulb emits. However, a 100 watt incandescent bulb also requires more energy to operate than a lower wattage. Therefore, it makes sense to consider how much brightness you actually need for the various spaces in the home. A case in point is the hallway, which only needs about 10 lumens per square foot and may therefore do very well with a 40 watt incandescent bulb.
Do you like the beauty that vintage bulb designs bring to a space? Consider the Edison light bulb that introduces a reproduction of the classic original. When the color palette that is possible with this illumination fascinates you, consider the options. There are various light bulb types in frosted, amber, blue, pink, and all kinds of tones available right now.
