Every room in a modern building is illuminated by artificial lighting. This means that sooner or later you will need to find the right replacement light bulbs for your fixtures. Whether you are looking for specifically designed light bulbs to conserve energy or if you need a certain model for a specialty lamp, you have come to the right place. Here at Residential Landscape Lighting and Design we have a wide selection of many lamps and bulbs to fit your needs, and all of them are cost effective enough to find a place in any budget.
There are many options available. If you are seeking energy efficient light bulbs you can find many options here. In order to maximize energy savings in a home or business, many experts advise replacing all of your inefficient incandescent lights with the cheapest of the energy efficient models: fluorescent lamps. One of the quickest and easiest ways to accomplish this is to replace your older bulbs with compact fluorescent lamps. These lamps are designed to fit into the same socket as incandescents. They use much less energy to operate over their lifetime, and the savings can off set the initial slightly higher cost.
It is always a good idea to update the lamps and light bulbs. The first lamp invented was the predecessor to the modern incandescent light bulb. Older models simply lit, without regard to their efficiency, but today not all incandescent light bulbs are inefficient. We have a selection of 10,000 hour lamps, many of which are incandescents. These long life light bulbs are very efficient in the amount of energy they use. Other efficient light bulb options include halogen light bulbs. These work in the same manner as incandescents, but the difference is the addition of a halogen gas inside the lamp. This halogen actually repairs the filament as it burns. This gives halogen lamps a longer life alternative to older light bulbs.
We also offer an entire class of bulbs which many people use for outside. These are call high intensity discharge (HID) lamps. They all operate by sending an electric current through a specific gas inside the bulb. This excites the particles inside which emit light. This category includes mercury vapor lamps, metal halide lamps, high pressure sodium lamps, and low pressure sodium lamps. Of these the most efficient and best for illuminating colors are the high pressure sodium light bulbs. We do not offer low pressure sodium lamps due to their poor color rendering.
