Light Bulbs FAQs

What Is The Price Of An Incandescent Bulb?

The incandescent bulbs  are no longer valid and are replaced either by eco halogen bulbs of the same shape and / or base, either CFLs or LED bulbs .

What Should I Do With My Old Incandescent Light Bulbs?

Incandescent light bulbs simply fall into your household waste and are not recyclable.

Is It True That Incandescent Bulbs Will Soon Be Banned?

Yes and no .. Traditional incandescent bulbs are no longer manufactured but are replaced by halogen bulbs called “eco”. Namely, a halogen bulb is also an incandescent lamp because they also have a filament. It can be said that they are boosted, with an average lifespan of 2000 hours and a saving of 20% compared to an incandescent bulb that has an average lifespan of 1000 hours.

Why Such A Difference In Price Between Light Bulb And Incandescent Bulb?

An incandescent bulb is simply made of a glass envelope, a filament, a few different elements and a screw or bayonet base. This old technology very profitably and does not require expensive components.

Like LED bulbs defined on Zephyrledlights, a low energy bulb such as 230V compact fluorescent bulbs requires electronic components, mercury, rare earth based powders that will give the color temperature. The quality of the components or the use for a specific use can also influence the cost.

What Is The Function Of An Incandescent Bulb?

Worn at high temperature, a helically wound tungsten filament is enclosed in a glass envelope in which an inert gas of the argon or xenon type is located. Under an electrical tension the filament becomes incandescent and produces light. The inert gas preserves the filament without which it would ignite. Despite all the filament vaporizes and eventually break. A 100w incandescent bulb of 1550 Lumens produces only 10% of light and the rest is heat.

What Are The Advantages Of An Incandescent Bulb?

The advantage of an incandescent bulb is its low cost, instant ignition and reduced size. In addition to these many advantages, these bulbs do not require recycling.
