Sleep Better Bulb – The GE C Sleep Smart Bulb might be a bit more expensive than a regular bulb however there are many perks in having this bulb. This particular bulb can be controlled with your smartphone. For nighttime, it can provide you with a warmth and calmness for sleep that doesn’t interfere with the production of Melatonin. If you are unfamiliar with Melatonin, this natural sleep hormone assists in good sleep and productive sleep patterns. This Sleep Better Bulb costs about $20 dollars and can be found at any of your local home improvement stores. Of course there are other bulbs available out there to assist in your sleeping so choose the one that fits your particular budget and needs.
The No Bug Bulb – If you have a covered patio that you like to enjoy in the evenings, you know all about those flying bugs all around the light. These critters are drawn to the light and fly around dipping and hitting things – at times they can swoop at you not creating a nice and enjoyable time on your patio. This particular No Bug Bulb is a yellow color and the coating makes it hard for most flying insects to see.
The Party Bulb – If you use your home to entertain and or have many family gatherings in your home this bulb is a great alternative to a normal bland white bulb. Again, you can use your smartphone to change the hues of the bulb and even can sync to your music. This bulb is pricey no doubt however, your home will definitely be the talk of your friends.
Do you ever have a great lamp but it doesn’t put off as much light as you would like? Do you really have to follow those instructions that are taped to the cord of the lamp??? Answer is YES and you should!! The manufacturer of the lamp knows how much heat the fixture can stand without damage to the socket and wiring. PLUS, it could be a fire hazard if you exceed the recommended wattage.
Lighting of course is a big deal in your home or even your office. We all have to buy light bulbs but choosing the right one for each room is important to make your days easier.
