Incandescent bulbs produce light by utilizing a wire filament and an electric current. These lights are manufactured in a variety of shapes, sizes and wattages for use in commercial and residential applications. And because they require no external regulating equipment, incandescent bulbs can be used in an assortment of settings.
CFLs are fluorescent lamps that have been designed to replace inefficient incandescent bulbs. Because they use only one-third of the electric power required by an incandescent and last up to 15 times longer, these bulbs are becoming increasingly popular in applications that formerly used the less efficient technology.
LEDs are also a more efficient alternative to incandescent light bulbs. These bulbs make use of photon energy to create visible light. LEDs are available in a selection of colors that are dependent upon the corresponding energy of the photon.
