lighting needs cannot be met with a typical light bulb. Decorative
lighting is only one example of the need for a special type of light.
Other lighting needs that require specialty lights include greenhouses,
light therapy and aquariums. There are special bulbs and fixtures
for these types of lighting needs. They generally produce lights
with higher or lower frequencies as well as higher or lower temperatures.
Specialty lights can be purchased at specialty lighting stores or
stores that specialize in your specific need.
Aquariums require a special type of bulb or lamp to give them light.
The lights used in an aquarium are designed for the unique environment
that is stored inside. They should give off a light that highlights
the natural beauty and colors of aquatic life. If something other
than aquatic life, a snake for example, is contained in the aquarium,
the light should give off the appropriate heat. You should use one
lamp for every 24 square inches in the tank.
Grow lights are another type of specialty light. They are high
output fluorescent lights designed to be used in greenhouses. There
are various types of lights for this purpose. 6500 degree cool lights
are ideal for plant growth or seedlings. 3000 degree warm lights
are the perfect choice for fruit and flowering purposes. There are
also mix lamps which offer a full spectrum effect. The best lights
for greenhouses should be lightweight and easy to hang. They should
also have a low heat factor which will allow you to hang them closer
to the plant canopy. This will raise the light factor and give you
the most benefit for each light.
Light therapy lamps are designed to be of service to those who
are afflicted with Seasonal Affective Disorder. This ailment is
also referred to as the winter blues, winter depression or seasonal
depression. People who suffer from this malady need the nutrients
produced form the rays of the sun in order to maintain balance in
their emotional health. These are full spectrum lights and vary
widely in quality and price. Some of them require the user to sit
within 2 feet of the lamp for 30 minutes to 2 hours at a time. Others
require that the user merely be in the same room. There are also
models that are designed to be ultra quiet. High end models can
cost hundreds of dollars.
Lights are a major part of our life. We use them everyday for general
and decorative purposes as well as special uses. Specialty lights
are designed for specific uses and can be purchased from lighting
specialists. You can also find specialty holiday lights at these
lighting stores. They include icicle, net and globe lights among
