Tips from Mullingar Electrical

For most of our standard bulbs we have Bayonet Cap and Screw cap available

Bayonet Cap is the most common cap for household bulbs


Different types of Lightbulbs


These are the standard bulbs that most people are familiar with and typically the most inexpensive option. They produce a warm and steady light that complements skin tones and come in a wide variety of colours, shapes and sizes. However although they can last for 700 - 1000 hours they are not as energy efficient as other bulbs available.


CFL's are a modern type of light bulb that use 67% less energy than the standard incandescent bulb. They normally last up to 10,000 hours and use a much smaller wattage than incandescent bulbs making them much more energy efficient. The cons of CFL's is that they are more expensive and require a short warm up period to reach its maximun brightness.


LED's are bulb without a filament that are low in power consumption and have a long life span. LED's are more energy efficienct compared to CFLs however you need alot more LED's to match the light of a single CFL.

The light source out of the current LED is perfect for downlights in kitchens etc.
