The lives of people in need of a large number of components that facilitate the realization of a myriad of activities, whether it be very important elements that occur in a complex way or other to the contrary are simple, however the great influence on daily activity, as occurs with the bulbs, which despite being something so simple at first glance, they offer an indispensable factor for the realization of different activities as is the lighting of different sites before certain conditions are dark, so the bulbs offer the solution to provide light quickly and easily. No doubt the bulbs are very simple elements, to which comes in daily life to perform different activities stop where artificial light is needed, given the non-presence of natural light provided by the sun during the day, but the provision of this element means as simple a process of scientific development which has not always counted.

What makes possible the application of light at certain points special thanks to the bulbs, is the result of heating a metal filament, which at a certain point becomes white hot by the passage of electric current, which has made the bulbs are also called incandescent lamps . Among the various components that make possible the proper functioning of the bulbs, are the filament, which is very thin, which is combined with the glass bulb, ie the filament is enclosed within the bulb, in which shows the empty or has the presence of an inert gas, which is directed to bringing to the heat generated by the bulb through the passage of electric current, to prevent the filament to volatilize or burn out due to the high temperatures reached. Along with the above components are introduced metal cap, which is prepared in the form of threads to be able to put in the line energy, ie acts as the electrical receptacle, as in are arranged on electrical connections. As the intensity of light that can offer different types of bulbs, is of great importance to the size that has the glass bulb, since depending on lamp power the bulb will vary in size, and that having greater intensity, higher temperature is also presented, so the need for greater cooling surface that allows the filament is not consumed by the same temperature it generates.

At present, incandescent lamps or bulbs have begun to be replaced, since the service they provide in comparison to other lighting is inefficient, since 90% of electricity using the heat and not converted into light, suggesting an unnecessary expense in the presence of halogen lamps, which generate almost no heat and energy expenditure using it mainly for the production of lighting, which is much more profitable.
