ABCs Of Electrical Services Jacksonville

The incandescent lamp is the most common domestic lighting device and two different configurations are offered by Electrical Services Jacksonville. It is a technology that has dominated the lighting industry for over a century, but which in its traditional configuration is destined to disappear from the market soon.

Since 2009, traditional incandescent bulbs have been progressively eliminated from the market, in favor of those with low energy consumption. The banning did not concern halogen lamps which, although they fall within the category of incandescent lamps, have good efficiency values.

The light source is enclosed in a glass bulb, with the light coming from the heating of a tungsten filament through which the electric current is passed. Inside the glass bulb, there is a low pressure gas, normally argon, which delays the evaporation of the tungsten filament. It is a particularly inefficient technology.
