I think we have the answer
Lots of interesting reading about LED lights though.
Incandescent bulbs are electric space heaters that produce light.
LED's lack the light crystal lattice structure of incandescent bulbs.
Match the light to the application
Those flame LED bulbs ROCK!
Well, you mentioned both, didn't you? Does the garage door opener use an incandescent bulb too?
Still, modern LED bulbs cost a dollar and a quarter. That's a long way from ten bucks. And a 60 watt equivalent uses 9 watts and takes 85% less energy to operate it.
So it's half as loud?
The real question is whether the tone is better with LED or incandescent jewel lights, and which color???
Blue of course!
Oh my, I'm wasting fifteen cents a month.
LED Zeppelins or bust
I switched my incandescent flood lights for Cree LEDs in the backyard, skunks have nowhere to hide.
Haven’t had an incandescent bulb in years, changed almost all (maybe all, I have to check) fluoro for LED.
There is nothing to discuss
My electric bill dropped NOTICEABLY after replacing every single bulb with LED's.
I'm good with the appearance of the newer LEDs. I think they look as good as incandescent inside the house. I hate fluorescent. I have some in my new garage that will be replaced with some LED strips that I think are fantastic for the workshop.
However, I have some halogen lamps that I really like having over my woodworking bench in the garage. The give off off just enough heat that I can get under them when it's down in the 40s, and I don't need a space heater. I stocked up on enough bulbs to last me a long time. I can't even find these kind of fixtures anymore. It's disappointing that that kind of utility is becoming prohibited in toto. It's not like anyone was filling their house with these bulbs.
I agree that LEDs are better for most circumstances. So far I think they last longer. I guess the acid test will be the 3-way bulbs, which always died really quickly. I don't really know why that's the case. Probably due to noise of the cheap lamp switches. I've finally run out of 3-way incandescent bulbs, so they should be all replaced with LEDs soon.
I'm somewhat skeptical of the environmental significance of home energy savings. I went solar at my last house. It was always slightly cheaper than local power, and it required no money down, so it was a no brainer. I was producing >90% of my home electrical need and saving money to do it. However, the one thing it made clear was that I have a vastly greater carbon footprint due to transportation. Orders of magnitude here. In the end, I just didn't use much electricity at home.
I think that it's probably good and useful to get people on to more efficient lighting on the whole, at least to start, but that there are some circumstances where alternative lighting is still desirable and should be available.
shouldn't that wording be changed to indecent bulb by now?
I don't want to tread near politics again and have my post removed
I guess you all are talking household lighting but on a similar theme, I changed the headlight on one of my bikes from halogen to LED. What a difference! I can now actually see where I'm going at night. I'll be converting the other bike soon.
Has anyone tried rolling all these different types in a youtube. I'd like to see that ...
I think LEDs would be more tolerable if you run them though and old ceramic lamp base. It tends to smooth out the harshness.
I tend to prefer HPS bulbs.
Sorry, wrong board.
