Understanding LED vintage Bulbs

As LED vintage light bulbs are getting more popular, more affordable, and better looking, there are some important factors to keep in mind. The color temperature of the light, which ranges from 2200K (more yellow than a standard incandescent bulb) to 2700K (same as the standard incandescent bulb) is one factor. The light output which is measured as lumens, or as a incandescent equivalent is another. For example, 60 watt incandescent bulb usually produces 800 Lumens, and a 40 watt bulb produces around 300 lumens. The next important factor in your LED vintage bulbs selection is the bulbs glass tint. Clear, amber, or smoke are usually the choices for this option. It makes more of a difference look-wise when the bulb is off, then when it’s on. The light fixture style and color should influence this option.
