Light Bulbs for Sale
Have you heard that the government is taking away your ability to buy light bulbs? That it is illegal to buy certain types of light bulbs? Well that isn't necessarily the truth. There are some light bulbs that the government has put a ban on the importation of in the United States. Some of the light bulbs that have been affected by the ban have been the T12 Linear Fluorescent Light Bulbs, the PAR Halogen Lamps and the good old Incandescent Light Bulb. But when they say the bulbs are banned, what they really mean is that manufacturers have had to come up with a way to manufacture the same type of light and call it something else.
The goal of the ban of light bulbs was to drive an energy efficient campaign in the US and try to get companies and residents to be more aware of their Energy Consumption and to be more conservative when picking out their lighting. A Compact Fluorescent Lamp that is only 15 Watts produces the same amount of light as a 60 Watt Incandescent Lamp, using less than half of the energy. But a lot of people don't like the long start up time that the Fluorescents have. So then you can go to the 10 Watt LED Bulb and try your luck with the 50 Year Life span, but the large up front cost of the lamp has most people keeping their wallets closed. So what options do you really have?
Well manufacturers have heard the cries of the public and have made some changes. A standard 100 Watt Incandescent that you can no longer buy on the shelves is still available and some local locations until stock has run out. The other option is to buy the new 80 Watt Incandescent that has been manufactured to replace the 100 Watt Bulb. Most Manufactures have made some sort of reduced wattage incandescent bulb to replace the beloved 100, 75 and 60 Watt version of the Incandescent.
The main thing is that light bulb purchases have gone from a mindless purchase while out and about running errands, to a detailed planned out buy. You can no longer walk into the store, see the bulb on the shelf and buy it. Now you have to know what type of light you would like to buy, how it fits into your energy consumption and what you are really wanting from you light. The best bet is to call a lighting expert that can help you make the right choice in your lighting purchase. Most employees at the big box stores are not trained in the details of lighting and don't know what the difference between lights are.
