Light bulb sockets in general.
At BuyLightFixtures.com, we always want you to get the best possible quality lighting products available. We do that not only with our light fixtures but also with the accessories and parts that you need to repair existing ones. Light bulb sockets include all the different variations there are available. These are merely a way to make the connection safely to an electrical current that will supply any light sources. There are so many different ways to connect a lamp bulb, and the lamp base has everything to do with the connection. The lamp sockets are made for certain types of lighting, and all of these started somewhere when the original Edison light bulb was created. The most popular one is the E26 Edison screw base which has been used for incandescent lighting all the way up everything that you see today. It’s the easiest way to implement any new lighting because the base is so pervasive everywhere. People often refer to this as a regular household light bulb with a medium base, and that’s a general way people can talk about it. As long as you have a screw-in type of bulb that operates on 120 volts, you can put in a bulb almost anywhere. There are some things to keep it into consideration though. If you have anything that’s operating on a ballast whether the lamp screws in or not, you need to be aware that not everything is used in that socket. There is a simple common sense rule, but one that needs to be stated on occasion as some people think that when they see a standard socket, that they could screw almost anything into it. That’s not always the case.

E26 medium base sockets.
As stated before, this is the most popular type of light socket for incandescent lighting on the market. It uses the household base that everybody’s used two and most everybody has this in their home or business. There’s always a need for this standard socket, and it’s readily replaceable with any of the E26 bases that you see on our website. These have a rating for wattage and voltage that you will see stamped on the porcelain itself. This will tell you how many watts you can put into the socket, but you should also respect what the manufacturer of the light fixture that you have requires. Just because something has a very high wattage rating doesn’t mean you should put that in and that it would be safe. The light fixture manufacturer will determine what the maximum watch that you could use with any one of these replaceable incandescent light sockets.

E39 mogul base sockets.
This is the larger base that you’d often see used with higher wattage incandescent lamps. It’s very popular for wattages more than 200 watts. It’s often called an industrial type base, but it wasn’t necessarily used in just that application. There were many types of home lighting applications and specialized lighting that would utilize a mogul base incandescent socket. If you are changing the lamp on these, make sure that the light is cool and then you can investigate whether the socket is still suitable or not. These are always a porcelain type of socket because it has to take a very high amount of heat most of the time. With the advent of some of the better lighting options, we see less and less of this type of socket. But many people still use these, and for specific applications, the incandescent high wattage type of light fixture is always preferred.

Halogen bulb sockets.
Halogen light bulb sockets are an incandescent type that becomes a category unto itself although you can use the standard household base with many of the halogens. Sometimes there is the bi-pin base bulb which is a small little bulb either with or without a reflector, and that has a distinctive two pin base. Typically those also have some ceramic housing or construction because they have to withstand the very high heat of halogen lighting. And sometimes the heat is drawn out of the back of the lamp with something like an MR16 bulb. Very often those type of light sockets needs to be replaced on a regular basis. They can get worn out over time just from the heat that the halogen puts off. It could be considered a consumable item, and it’s something that has to be replaced on occasion if the fixture doesn’t have excellent heat dissipation.share Halogen lighting does have more heat associated with it and is usually harder on sockets, so it’s something to keep in mind if you have a lot of halogens in your commercial building or retail store. If you’re fighting heat all the time and it’s doing some damaging things to the light fixtures you have, you may want to consider moving over to LED which has low heat, and a lot of you have already done that. But if you haven’t, it’s a good time to consider that because the energy savings are so high, but you’ll also get the extra benefit of not having so much heat in your light fixtures and therefore causing them some damage over time. In this general category of light bulb sockets, you have a whole subcategory of something called socket adapters. These are adapter converters they can take an existing type of socket and converting it to another. It’s straightforward, and many times these can be used in some different situations where you can’t rewire a light fixture, or it’s very inconvenient to do that. Adapters make a lot of sense for people that want to get to a different kind of lighting without having to do all sorts of rewiring which can cost a lot of money and time if you can do it yourself. Not only do we have the adapters, but we also have the extenders that can move the light bulb out an inch or more in a light fixture that needs to get the light further out. There may be a situation where the construction of the light fixture is such that the actual bulb won’t fit in there unless you use an extender. So that’s a good solution for many of you who don’t want to go out and buy new light fixtures but want something that’s going to fit correctly.
