If you’ve purchased light bulbs lately, you may have noticed that incandescent bulbs are back on the shelves. After legislation requiring lighting to be more efficient went into effect, bulb manufacturers went to work to make traditional bulbs work with less energy. Halogen bulbs were made to meet the standards as well. And for a few specialty light fixtures in your home, these might be the best options. Still, neither incandescent nor halogen bulbs deliver near the energy savings of compact fluorescent light bulbs or light emitting diodes. And they still create a lot of heat in addition to light, which isn’t always bad in the winter but can make it hard to keep your home cool when it’s warmer outside.
