LED light bulbs are hard to beat for energy efficiency, and the newest generation are matching the performance of traditional incandescent bulbs by offering warmer and brighter light than earlier designs. We recently profiled Cree’s TrueWhite LED light bulb, and now Philips has joined the pack with its AmbientLED model (the first on the market […]
Recent media reports have questioned the safety of some LED light bulbs, citing concerns about hazardous materials contained inside some lights. But these concerns are largely overblown, and LEDs remain one of the cleanest and safest lighting technologies on the market.
Cree, Inc., already an industry leader in LED technology, has raised the bar even further with its new TrueWhite bulb. The TrueWhite uses just a fraction of the electricity consumed by an incandescent or fluorescent bulb; it casts an exceptionally bright, warm light; and it’s even compatible with dimmable fixtures.
Let’s face it – incandescent light bulbs provide nice light, but they’re energy-efficiency dinosaurs. Compact fluorescents (CFLs) are better, but they contain toxic chemicals like mercury. So for long-lasting lights that use just a tiny fraction of the electricity (and can pay for themselves many times over), make the switch to LED light bulbs.
