Becky Travaglini, who lives outside Pittsburgh, says the bulb was already in its socket when they bought the house in 1980.

"We moved in October 1980, we bought the house and the light bulb was in the house when we moved in," she told Inside Edition. "It’s the same light bulb and it still works."

She alerted Inside Edition about her light bulb, after seeing Thursday's story about another Pennsylvania family who had an alarm clock stuck in their wall that continued beeping nightly for 13 years.

Recently, the alarm clock was removed from the wall. Inside were two Rayovac batteries.
