LED light bulbs aren’t just getting cheaper and producing warmer light – they’re also getting brighter. The latest in Philips EnduraLED line is this 17-watt 1,100 lumen model: a 75 watt equivalent LED light bulb that means users can make the efficiency switch in bigger and brighter lamps around the house.
Now that it’s 2013, traditional 75-watt incandescent bulbs won’t be readily available anymore. And that’s fine, because LED light bulbs aren’t just for reading lamps and task lighting anymore. This Philips bulb is Energy Star certified, fully dimmable, and doesn’t emit the UV rays that can fade furniture and artwork. Its warm 2,700K color temperature is perfect for living spaces, and is virtually indistinguishable from incandescent light.
Since the bulb it replaces is an energy-hungry 75-watt incandescent, the savings on your electrical bill are pretty impressive. Used 3 hours every day, the bulb will cost just a couple dollars per year, and will last for nearly 23 years!
