Light bulbs are essential lighting elements that traditionally produce light through a heated filament wire. In an incandescent light bulb, the hot filament is protected by a glass enclosure to prevent oxidation. The glass is filled with inert gas. Bulbs are also classified according to energy-efficiency factors. Each of them has unique properties that make them ideal for different applications, such as ambient lighting, overall lighting, or decorative purposes.
Types of Bulbs
The incandescent light bulb is the most common type of bulb that you can purchase in stores, but it tends to burn out fast and requires careful handling to protect the filament. Incandescent bulbs are also considered expensive to run. Another variant is the halogen bulb, which passes electricity through the tungsten filament enclosed by a tube with halogen gas. Because it contains gas, the halogen Bulbs should not be placed near flammable materials and rooms with combustible objects.
Another common bulb is the fluorescent bulbs, which promises long life (10,000 to 20,000 hours) and efficiency without emitting too much heat. CFLs or compact fluorescent lamps are one of the variants of fluorescent bulbs. They are appreciated for their lower running costs, making them known as 'low energy bulbs,' too.
