If you're concerned that the government has outlawed your favorite lightbulbs, plunging you into a confusing world of ugly-looking lightbulbs that give off weird light, have no fear. The only thing that has been outlawed is selling lightbulbs that heat your house more than light it. The old incandescent bulbs converted only 10 percent of the electricity used into light; the rest became heat. Ever hear of an Easy-Bake Oven?
Incandescent light is still available but in a more efficient package. Look for a halogen bulb like the one lighting this chandelier. These bulbs look the same as traditional bulbs, but with the filament encased in gas, they are able to produce light like a 100-watt incandescent bulb with only 72 watts.
