Introduction to LED A19 Bulbs
When people think of a light bulb, the first thing that comes to mind is the snow cone shaped LED A19 bulb. It has emerged as the benchmark for household lighting in bedrooms, living rooms, bathrooms, kitchens, garages, and more. When it was first introduced in the market, A19 bulbs were produced using incandescent technology. Today, they are commercially available as energy-efficient LED alternatives. These versatile bulbs deliver as much as 1,150 lumens of warm light (2700K) or cool light (5000K) while using up to 90% less energy when compared to the incandescent bulbs they replaced.
LED Light Bulbs for Household Use
High Kelvin color temperatures provide bluer and cooler light while low Kelvin color temperatures offer a more yellow and warmer light. By far the closest match to the hue of incandescents is the light emitted by LED bulbs at about 2700 Kelvin. Bulbs at around 3000 Kelvin look the same as halogen lamps. If you are used to the clean white light of clear metal halide lamps, go for a 4000 Kelvin LED A19 bulb. LEDs with a color temperature of 5000 Kelvin and higher emit near daylight white light. This particular color temperature is typically used for commercial settings.
We also have in stock colored bulbs that are often reserved for parties and events. Use 3-way bulbs if you want more evenly diffused light. Silver bowl bulbs are known for being easy on the eyes because they reduce glare. Other lighting options include LED A19 bulbs with high color rendering index (CRI), bulbs equipped with a GU24 twist and lock base, and A21 bulbs for applications requiring over 2000 Lumens.
Dimmable LED Light Bulbs
You have come to the right place if you are looking for an LED A19 with dimming feature. Dimmers offer a multitude of benefits like helping create ambiance through the adjustment of light levels, reducing power consumption, and lowering your electric bill. All our dimmable LEDs come with a mark at the top of the product page to indicate that they are "dimmable". See to it that you browse through our "Dimmer Compatibility" PDF to make sure that the bulb is compatible with your dimmer switch. Bear in mind that not all dimmers are designed to control all kinds of bulbs. If you use a bulb with a dimmer that was not tested for compatibility, you may experience lights flickering, slow start-up, limited dimming range, and inconsistent illumination. In addition, using an incompatible dimmer shortens life span for the bulb and causes a buzzing/humming sound.
GU24 Base Bulb
You may have heard about GU24 base bulbs but don’t know exactly what they are. These fixtures are available in both CFL and LED. They have a unique base which includes two pins that protrude from the bottom of the bulb. In order to install, you need to plug the pins into the corresponding holes in the socket and then twist the bulb to lock it into place.
Advantages of GU24 Bulbs
- GU24 bulbs are self ballasted which means the ballast section is already attached to the bulb and can easily be replaced.
- Standard GU24 base bulbs are interchangeable between manufacturers.
- The total length of the bulb is shorter because the ballast and the bulb are integrated into one unit.
- The wattage of the bulb can be easily changed unlike pin base bulbs that require the socket to be changed for different wattages. This offers greater flexibility.
- GU24 bulbs are great for homes since the size and shape of the socket is identical to an incandescent socket.
- The GU24 is energy efficient and lasts longer than their screw-in counterpart. The expected lifespan of 25,000 hours reduces the need for regular replacement and maintenance costs.
- These bulbs come in a variety of color temperatures - from 2700 to 4000K.
Our GU24 base bulbs come in different shapes, wattages, and Lumen outputs. You will surely find one that perfectly suits your application. For inquiries and further assistance, feel free to contact us and discuss your concerns with our friendly support staff.
