July 10, 2009, Newsletter Issue #174: Types of Track Lights

Tip of the Week

Track light fixtures can use several different kinds of bulbs:
Incandescent: Most common, but also not very energy-efficient. Best for ambient or general lighting.Halogen track lights: Produce very bright, focused light for relatively little energy. Excellent for task lighting or dramatic accent lighting.Fluorescent: Best for unfocused light, such as "washing" a wall with light. More energy-efficient than incandescent.LED track lighting: Very energy-efficient and becoming more popular. A 7-watt LED bulb can cast as much light as a 40- to 60-watt incandescent bulb.
