Light Bulbs

  • Incandescent Bulbs: Incandescent bulbs are the typical bulbs
  • Fluorescent Lamps: The fluorescent bulbs are more complex than the incandescent bulbs
  • Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFL)
  • Halogen Lamps
  • Light Emitting Diode (LED)
How to Determine Light Bulb Base Type
  1. Look for threads on the light bulb base.
  2. Look for pins.
  3. Identify a plug-in type base by the appearance of a rectangular protrusion on the plug end of a compact florescent bulb.
  4. Determine if the bulb is a bayonet type base by looking for a smooth sided base, such as a screw base without threads.
