I’ve been using tungsten lighting for years. I originally got it because it seemed like the best way to get more natural light into my house. The reason I use it more is that it’s more expensive than conventional bulbs and the energy savings are far better.
It’s hard enough to install the bulbs I need for my home. It’s even harder to find a place to use them (and the fixtures are quite expensive). But tungsten lights are generally much more durable, and they don’t cost nearly as much. I’ve even gotten some tungsten bulbs from China and other places that were way more expensive than I could find at Home Depot.
This is the reason why I don’t use tungsten bulbs for my home. They’re expensive. But this is another reason why I use them less.
You can get tungsten bulbs for as cheap as $1.00 a bulb, but you can get them for 5.50 a bulb. The bulbs from China I found were way more expensive than that, and you could get them at Home Depot for even less.
The last time I saw Chinese tungsten bulbs was at Home Depot. They were so expensive I couldve bought 2 of them and used them for a year. The way I figured it, there was no way I could afford to buy 2 of them. And I wouldnt have had the money to buy them elsewhere. I mean seriously. It was the absolute cheapest tungsten bulb I could buy anywhere. I just didnt know that it was that cheap.
It’s not cheap. But it’s affordable for anyone who doesn’t mind a bit of plastic. You can get a tungsten bulb for $20 here from Home Depot. That’s still $30 a bulb. Or you can get a $20 bulb for $20 here at your local electronics store. The latter is more expensive than the former but cheaper than paying $30 for the bulb.
The tungsten bulb might be the most expensive bulb I’ve seen this year. It probably has the best quality of any light bulb on the market. But it’s also a cheap bulb. In fact, if you buy it at a light store, you don’t get a lot of the tungsten bulb sales in your neighborhood. It’s a pretty light bulb.
That may be one of the reasons why people like tungsten lights more than incandescent bulbs. The tungsten bulb is a pure white light, so unless you’re a very dark person, it will work fine for general lighting. If you want a more intense, more vibrant, or more colored light, then you’ll have to go with an incandescent bulb. Both are cheap and very useful bulbs, but they are not as long lived as tungsten bulbs.
I’m not sure why people love tungsten bulbs so much. The main reason is because they don’t really go against the natural color of your environment. Sure they do burn a bit more quickly than your usual bulb, but theyre not as bright as your regular bulb, and they’re not as good at blocking out the light.
My favorite tungsten bulb is the one that comes with the cheap dimmable bulb. It is not much brighter than the tungsten light you would find in a kitchen. The one I have is the light from a fluorescent bulb that just gets brighter as it burns. It is the light you see in a restaurant at night.
