Let There Be Light

Let There Be Light

The overall atmosphere of a home depends on several factors. One of those key factors is lighting options; if your home if properly lit, using the most suitable lighting options, it will create a pleasing aura and environment, no matter what time of day it is. As for choosing the most ideal lighting, there are a number of different types of residential, light bulbs.

In today's post, we will be highlighting some of the options homeowners have when it comes to lighting. 

Fluorescent Lighting

Fluorescent light bulbs are available in various sizes and styles, making them an ideal option for homeowners who want a wide selection to choose from. They also come in an assortment of warm tones as well as a few different colours to suit the specific needs of homeowners. A few of the most popular types of fluorescent lighting include compact fluorescent lamps and T8 bulbs. While these compact lamps are commonly used in most lighting fixtures, T8 bulbs are frequently used in larger ceiling fixtures.

Many homeowners opt for T8 bulbs, however, as they turn on instantly and don't produce a humming noise.

Incandescent Bulbs

While incandescent bulbs can produce a wonderful light tone, they aren't as energy-efficient as other types of lighting on the market. For this reason, they are mostly used as task lighting or in areas that don't require constant light.

Some of the most common types of incandescent bulbs include general service bulbs, reflectorized bulbs and Tungsten-halogen bulbs. There are many low voltage options available that can be used in various areas of your home. Some of the types that come under the low voltage title include MR8, MR11 and MR16 (mini-reflectors), PAR36 bulbs and T-4 Bi-Pin.

Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs)

LED lights are one of the most popular lighting options on the market due to their energy-efficiency and quality promise. Since some LED light bulbs are very small in size, several of these bulbs are usually combined to produce an adequate amount of light.

They are available in a wide range of styles and colours as well as Watts and types including LED strip lights, making them a popular option for homeowners who want to brighten their home whilst adding a unique, attractive touch to their lighting options.

All of these light bulbs are used by homeowners all across the country in various parts of their homes. They all have distinct benefits that set them aside from the rest, so it's all about choosing an option that meets your preferences and requirements.
