Replace your 45 watt bulbs with LEDs and start saving money!

About 90% of the energy that incandescent bulbs use is converted into heat. That's wasted energy, and it can drive your air conditioning bill through the roof. If you'd rather light up your home than heat it, LED technology is the answer. LEDs squeeze the most light out of every watt of electricity!

LED bulbs do generate a small amount of heat, but this bulb has design features to minimize even that minimal amount. It incorporates 20 radial cooling fins. These fins act as heat sinks and help dissipate hot air from the LED to ensure cool operating temperatures.

What's an LED?

LEDs (or Light Emitting Diodes) are a mature, well-tested technology. They've been used for several decades in the electronics industry and offer superior performance compares to other bulbs. LEDs last longer while using less power. They also produce less heat, which leads to additional power savings on air conditioning costs.

Recent technological advances have paved the way for brighter LEDs that outperform incandescent and even compact fluorescent bulbs. These LED bulbs screw into standard wall sockets and work in the traditional way. Unlike older LEDs, these bulbs offer enough lumens to light up an entire room.

Why choose LED bulbs?

LEDs use far less electricity - about 95% less than an incandescent bulb. They use even less energy than compact fluorescents! Compared with a 45W incandescent bulb, this bulb uses only 3 Watts to produce the same amount of light (240 Lumens). Also, unlike other bulbs that scatter light in every direction, LED bulbs produce directional light that isn't absorbed by the fixture or dissipated by reflectors.

If you're installing a bulb in a difficult to reach spot (such as the 2nd floor ceiling over an atrium) then you'll appreciate the reduced maintenance that LED bulbs offer. They last up to 50 times longer than incandescent lights and 5 times longer than compact fluorescents, which means fewer trips up and down the ladder. LED bulbs also wear out differently - they will gradually fade rather than abruptly going out. After 50,000 hours of operation, this bulb will still offer 70% of its initial intensity.

LEDs are perfect for galleries or studio settings. This bulb produces none of the light that can age photographs or artwork (it produces no Ultraviolet or Infrared radiation). When you want to protect valuable decorations from fading and appreciate them at the same time, choose an LED for safe, sharp light!

Please note, LED lamps are not intended for use with dimmers. Using this lamp with a dimmer could shorten its lifespan considerably, but it is designed to work with timers and/or photocells.

Why should I choose THIS LED lamp?

This bulb works great for track lighting and everyday lamp applications. It works best when installed facing down or at a specific object, but it can also be used with a reflector to scatter gentle light across a wider area. It's best for highlighting a specific area of your home or business, such as an artwork or the top shelf of a product display.

With the long life you'll get from our LEDs, you'll save approximately 50 incandescent bulbs and 5 compact fluorescent bulbs from the landfill. By choosing LEDs, you reduce pollution by avoiding the production, shipment, and disposal of all these extra bulbs. And this LED is projected to last 11 years or more!

Best of all, you can use these bulbs in any traditional lamp outlet.
