In the last couple of years, traditional incandescent A19 light bulbs (the shape most of us picture when thinking about light bulbs) were phased out of production and importation in the US. These included incandescent bulbs of 40, 60, 75, and 100 watts.
A lot of people have been unhappy about this change because they love the warmth and familiarity of incandescent bulbs. However, there are plenty of good options, including LED A19 bulbs, halogen A19 bulbs (which are actually incandescent bulbs!), and believe it or not … the traditional incandescent bulb you know and may love is still available, despite the regulations.

Recessed lights are one of the most popular modern lighting options for homes and for many office settings.

This article will give you a general overview of recessed lighting including its three main components, applications, and things to consider when buying housing, trim, or bulbs for recessed lighting.Read More

Most of us are familiar with the special effect of what we commonly call black lights -- when everything else is dark, a black light makes certain objects glow in the dark. This is because certain objects "fluoresce" under ultraviolet (UV) light, which is what a black light emits.
But when we talk about black lights, many of us are actually referring to what the lighting industry calls a "blacklight blue" bulb (BLB). There are differences between these and what the industry calls a true black light (BL). This article explores those differences.Read More

When you're simply replacing lights in a warehouse, the process is fairly straightforward: you look at a bulb, fixture, or ballast and find a part number; then head to a website like LightingSupply.com, which is loaded with commercial lighting products, and search for that part number.
