Notification of Light Bulb Failure
« on: March 21, 2006, 08:21:49 am »
Hello,
 I was wondering if there are any notifications before a light bulb goes out? Such as an increase or decrease in wattage or an increase or decrease in temperature. Any information would be helpful. Thanks.

Only fluorescents give you a warning just as they are about to go out the ends get black and sometimes they flicker
