Where to Buy Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan Light Bulbs
First step: FIND your HAMPTON BAY ceiling fan bulb size
The first step in finding the correct light bulb for your Hampton Bay ceiling fan is to measure the base of the bulb you are replacing. After the correct size is determined you can follow the light bulb recommendations below.
Second Step: Pick the correct sized lights
We recommend that you check your owner's manual or manufacturer specifications when purchasing new light bulbs. Many Hampton Bay ceiling fan light kits have a 60W or 40W max output, so the recommendations below do not exceed those specifications. Base size is also important so make sure you have measured your current light bulb base to make sure it's the correct size (use the chart above).

Make the upgrade to LED
Most Hampton Bay ceiling fans include 14 watt CFL bulbs in their light kits. However, CFL bulbs are an older design that may no longer be readily available in stores when the time comes to replace or upgrade.
