YEAH, YEAH – REGULAR LIGHT BULBS ARE NOW A THING OF THE PAST (Or ARE they???)
Here’s a way around the pesky light bulb ban that keeps you from using a 100W bulb.
If you’re looking for a standard incandescent light bulb (A19) in the old wattage (25, 40. 60 or 100 watts) you can still get them as long as they’re a “Rough Service”.
What’s a “rough service” bulb? It’s a regular style bulb with a heavy internal filament. They last longer than regular bulbs and are designed to handle vibration. They’re generally used in elevators, utility rooms, garage door openers and other applications where the challenging conditions would otherwise kill a regular bulb.
LED and fluorescent light sources are great ways to create a more energy efficient home. But every now and then a regular light bulb is exactly what we need and require for our personal use.
So before you throw out your kid’s Easy-Bake Oven because you can’t score a 100 watt bulb, ask for (or special order) rough service bulbs. The new ban does not effect this style of light bulb.
Let the baking begin!!!
