How many people does it take to change a light bulb?

Although this may seem like a joke, changing a light bulb isn’t so simple these days!!  With so many choices, choosing the right light bulb has become a complicated task.

First things first when heading to your local hardware store is to make a list of the light bulbs that you need and the area you want to light.  Is this for an outdoor lantern, reading light, kitchen fixture, or a dimmable fixture, etc.

The next thing is to know what type of bulb to buy for the area you want to light. 

Incandescent.  The one that Thomas Edison perfected, which is the most popular and well-known light bulb in use is prized for its warm color.  Drawbacks of this bulb include low efficiency, high heat generation and fragility.
