Do fluorescent light bulbs last longer than regular ones?
Yes it does last longer. It is more expensive though in the end it save money because it uses less energy.
Fluorescent light bulbs can be bought at most hardware stores and lighting specialist stores. They can be purchased online from these stores and from online Dealers such as Amazon. A limited variety of fluorescent bulbs can also be purchase at high street department stores and supermarkets.
One may purchase a fluorescent light bulb at Home Depot, Lowe's and Home Hardware. Other sources for these bulbs include Canadian Tire, Rona and Walmart.
An ENERGY STAR qualified compact fluorescent light bulb (CFL) will save about $30 over its lifetime and pay for itself in about 6 months. It uses 75 percent less energy and lasts about 10 times longer than an incandescent bulb.
The US Environmental Protection Agency provides information on mercury released from a break and how to clean it up as safely as possible.
I have but if dimmer is on low the light fixture sometimes "hums", can be anoying It also shortens the bulb life, significantly in some cases. But their are also CFL bulbs built to be used with a dimmer switch that avoid these problems. Another Answer You should only use CFLs specifically-designed to be used with dimmers in circuits controlled by dimmer switches. There is a proven danger of fire hazard when ordinary CFLs are… Read More
They might not last longer, but the theory is; like ANY electrical/electronic device, when you turn it on & off, there is current surging through it (causing a rapid change in heat & density). This causes the device to change states very rapidly, analogous to playing on a see-saw, pressure (in the form of electricity) is being applied and then taken away very quickly. The see-saw will fatigue and fail quicker than if it were… Read More
It is possible, depending on the ballast wiring to the tubes. Some ballast units actually contain multiple independent ballasts that would be hooked to individual tubes or pairs of tubes independently. Some ballasts may control all the tubes in one fixture and when one tube fails the others either go out or flicker badly.
Yes, automotive bulbs have more than one for turn and tail lights. 3 way bulbs in house lamps have 3.
Yes, if it fits the socket and the light fitting, or lamp fixture, with its cover or shade. You will not be able to dim the compact fluorescent as you did the incandescent (unless you have a really fancy dimmer).
Fluorescent bulb lighting fixture has 3 two-bulb sets One set does not light when you turn on the switch yet when you twist either bulb in its socket the pair will light so do I need to replace bulb?
Are we talking about long fluorescent "tubes"?The socket may be bad, or the tube is not seated correctly in it's socket.Some fixtures use a socket that the tubes "twist" into.Twist the tube slightly in either direction until it seems "seated".
They supposedly have some mercury in them, which makes them not suitable for landfill. The old bulbs become illegal in Australia next year but nowhere I know do they have arrangements to recycle them (yet).
Yes, and not just because of the glass it is made of. The bulbs have mercury inside of them which can make you ill.
Why do fluorescent light bulbs contain dangerous amounts of Mercury and why should people avoid at all cost breaking one?
Mercury in the form of a low pressure vapor is used in fluorescent light bulbs. The mercury vapor is excited by electricity supplied to the bulb and emits short wave-length ultraviolet radiation, which is contained within the bulb and converted to visible light by the fluorescent materials with which the inside of the bulb is coated. Even in older bulbs that used relatively large amounts of mercury by today's standards, a single bulb did not… Read More
That means how much power the light bulb is consuming all the time when it's on. Incandescent lightbulbs have one wattage rating, but the new CFL and LED lightbulbs have two wattage ratings: wattage - this is the actual power consumed equivalent wattage - this is the wattage that would be consumed by an incandescent lightbulb that produced the same amount of light
Without year of vehicle and which bulb(s) you mean, this question is way too vague. That said, purchase the correct replacement light bulb(s) first, before disassembling the vehicle. See sources and related links below for replacement light bulb information. Then consult your owner's manual for the replacement procedure. As simple as it sounds, the owner's manual is the best place to start for light bulb replacement instructions and illustrations.
Although one of the lightbulbs can no longer produce light, the circut is still active, thus the other lightbulb can be emitting light too
Are mercury vapor light bulbs which cycle on and off through out the night energy efficient vs fluorescent flood lights mounted on a motion detecting fixture?
First, if your Mercury vapor lights are cycling on and off you probably have a bad ballast. Any ballasted bulb will be much less efficient when cycling on and off. The greatest amount of power is used when the power is first transmitted through the gas within the bulb. Second, Florescent bulbs are just about as efficient as mercury vapor lumen for lumen. Hope this helps Terry
A compact fluorescent lamp (CFL), also called compact fluorescent light, energy-saving light, and compact fluorescent tube, is a fluorescent lamp designed to replace an incandescent lamp; some types fit into light fixtures formerly used for incandescent lamps. The lamps use a tube which is curved or folded to fit into the space of an incandescent bulb, and a compact electronic ballast in the base of the lamp.
Why 2 bulb fluorescent fixture garage suddenly quit. Both bulbs on I came out garage 30 minutes later lights not working. Checked breaker-outlets-working. Replaced bulbs and fixture still not working?
More than likely the ballast in the fixture has failed.
put in the trains engine
you have to drop the bumber to get to the lights
Hey, You it's simple just add glass and void= lightbulb void+glass= lightbulbyou can get void if you get 100 things
then the other light bulbs in the circuit go out. However, in the case of modern Christmas tree lights in series, the bulbs are designed to short out when they blow, so that the other bulbs do not go out. They do get brighter, however, and this can lead to cascade failure, but that is why there is often a fuse in the plug.
Is a circuit that has two light bulbs and one battery less bright than a circuit that has two batteries and two light bulbs?
There's no general answer to that question. It could go either way, depending on the specific equipment in use. There are batteries of many different voltages, and light bulbs of many different resistances. It also makes a difference whether the two light bulbs are configured in series or in parallel, and whether the two batteries are in series or in parallel.

Bit of a nightmare,you need to take the whole light off by taking 3 nuts offfrom the inside.
remove the felt lining in the trunk. this will allow you access to the bulbs.
Front side lights
When you take off the square plastic covers, the only bulb that you can access is for the backup lights. In order to get to the tail light, and turn signal bulbs you have to remove the assembly. Just unscrew the 4 nuts from behind the trim and very carefully pop out the assembly. If it is difficult to remove, you may have to loosen the screws that hold the spoiler. The 2057 bulb is… Read More
Most of the newer bulbs can be removed by turning them counterclockwise after first removing the electrical connection. Purchase the replacement bulb first and have a look at the way it connects to the wiring and how it attaches to the headlight assembly. After sitting there for a few years the rubber often gets a little hard and is usually stuck to the headlight assembly so it might take a little effort. Hopefully removing it… Read More
Hot days tend to be in the summer, when the daylight hours are longer than winters. And bulbs generate heat which is not desired.
it separates the filament and supports so they won't touch
There are a huge variety of different bulbs powers offered at Light Bulbs Direct. They have lightbulbs designed for nearly every kind of wattage desirable.
I assume you re asking that if a bulb in series circuit burns out, then what happens to the other bulbs. If a bulb in a series circuit burns out, other bulb do not light, since the circuit s broken.
One can buy Phillips light bulbs from a number of stores and online retailers. They are available for purchase from The Home Depot, Amazon, eBay, Lowe's and Walmart.
So it reflects and doesn't burn the house down!!
One can purchase spare light bulbs in almost any store in the United States. Mass Merchandising stores like Walmart and Target offer the best deals. Grocery stores offer convenience.
You can purchase Sylvania light bulbs online from stores such as The Home Depot. Alternatively, you can also purchase Sylvania light bulbs from retailers such as Amazon.
Is it true that one must operate compact spiral fluorescent light bulbs only with the base down not in inverted or horizontal sockets?
No, this is not true. The spiral-type compact fluorescent bulbs can be operated in any orientation provided that there is sufficient air circulation around the bulb. But if you put the bulb in a fixed enclosure then it will last longer if the base is facing downwards so that the heat is conducted away from the electronics in the ballast. Always follow the manufacturers's directions - usually written on the bulb. No, this is not… Read More
= Answer = you dont
You will probably have to take the complete headlight assembly out to change them to get enough room to get to them.
go under front bumper remove rubber cover remove the wires then twist light assembly and remove bulb simple
Light bulbs draw/use more electricity when you first turn them on, as compared with when they've been on for a while. In the case of incandescent bulbs, this extra current stresses the tungsten filaments, making it more likely that they will fail when you first switch them on. Also, these failures tend to be more noticeable because you usually hear a pop thanks to the additional current passing through when the filament breaks. And you… Read More
take it to a mechanic and get them to cchange it! XD

To do something like that you would first have to have each light on it's own smart switch. Then you would need a master switch that would control each of the other smart switches. You can find switches like this at www.smarthome.com
In the wintertime, insects either die, or go into hiding to stay away from the cold. Therefore, they are not out and about to cluster around a lightbulb as much in the winter versus the summer.
Of course the answer is yes if use with our energy saving dimmer. Our energy saving dimmer is the only one can dim CFL,LED,T4,T5,T8,ceiling lamps,halogen lamp,quartz lamp etc. in the world. Our dimmer can apply to any brand of light source and lighting fixture.For example,our dimmer can dim the CFL of PHILIPsï¼�ORSAMï¼�GE etc.and this will not affect the performance and lifetime of lamp.Furthermore, dimming increases lifetime of lamp and saves energy because less electrical wattage… Read More
