What’s the Difference Between Commercial and Residential Light Fixtures?
Commercial lighting is specially designed to illuminate commercial premises to accommodate various business activities, from manufacturing to sales. By utilizing different colors, designs, and intensities, commercial lighting options offer custom solutions for multiple applications.
Commercial ballasts, for instance, are used with fluorescent lights to limit current to fluorescent bulbs and prevent them from increasing uncontrollably, overheating and burning out. A ballast is matched specifically to the light bulb it operates. Compared to residential fluorescents, these commercial fluorescents produce more substantial magnetic interference and more heat, making proper installation important in protecting against fire hazards and interference with electronics.

4 Common Types of Light Bulbs
The most commonly used commercial lighting, fluorescents and compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs), use 1/5 to 1/3 as much electricity as an incandescent. They also last ten times longer and have comparable lumen ratings. A CFL can be used in place of an incandescent in standard light sockets for energy savings. All fluorescents contain mercury and should be disposed of properly.
Light-emitting diodes used in LED lighting are typically more efficient and longer-lasting than any other light bulb, using 75 percent less energy than an incandescent and lasting 35 to 50 times longer.
Older technology makes incandescent bulbs less efficient than other choices and best utilized for task lighting requiring high brightness levels. In 2012, the Department of Energy required these bulbs to produce the same amount of light using less wattage. There are many types, including general service/standard, reflectorized, and xenon.
Twice as efficient as an incandescent, they produce a very bright white light and are commonly used in outdoor applications such as security and stadium lighting.
