What Light Bulb Should I Use in my Garage?

There are various important considerations when purchasing a garage light bulb. Many of the decisions you will need to make will be based on how you plan to utilize your garage.

The following questions will help you in the purchase of the best light bulb for your space:

  • Am I concerned with efficiency and the monthly cost on my electric bill?
  • Do I want a timer, so I don’t have to worry about turning the light off?
  • Does appearance matter to me?
  • Does the temperature of the bulb concern me?
  • Do I want easy installation?

Once you have answered these questions, it’s time to start your search for the best light bulb for your garage.

Boasting a motion activated sensor, the TRiLIGHT Ceiling Light is also great for those areas that are particularly dark, that you might be going in and out of regularly with items in hand or where a light switch might be hard to reach.

Your Typical Garage Light Bulb

You might be wondering how these lighting options differ to your typical garage light bulb. The standard bulb you might find in a garage only illuminates about 800 lumens, far less than the STKR Concepts options. Additionally, power consumption is around 60 watts for these regular bulbs, which equals more money owed to your electric company and greater harm to the environment than the TRi-LIGHT Motion Activated Ceiling Light of Multi-Point Illumination.

For design, the results are far sleeker and innovative with the products highlighted above, giving a lasting impression on anyone who walks into your garage. Lastly, the lifespan of a typical garage light bulb is only 1000 hours, 50 times less than lights produced by STKR Concepts. This means you’ll need to buy more light bulbs regularly with a traditional bulb. With electricity and replacement costs in mind, the standard light bulb will cost far more in the grand scheme of things.
