Lamps were different when great granddad was a boy.
If you have success with this technique please call Gary at 503.768.9077!
Here are some real-time actions you can take to improve your quality of life.
We recommend you buy lamps from a company specializing in lamps.
Careful handling is required from factory to your fixture, any shock along the way can significantly shorten lamp life.
Remember, the rated-life of a lamp is determined when 50% of the laboratory-tested lamps burn-out!
130-volt lamps survive voltage variations, commonly bouncing between 108-128 volts.
Install dimmers to double incandescent lamp-life by limiting top voltage to 95%.
However, nothing is free.
The compromise with extending incandescent lamp-life is the significant drop in light output.
Adding whole-house surge-protection to your electrical service will protect lamps
and every digital/electronic device you own.
