LED Edison-style filament lamps are available at 1000Bulbs.com

Customers can enjoy the amber glow of early 20th century lighting and the benefits of modern LED technology with LED Edison bulbs, now available at 1000Bulbs.com. Featuring a beautiful filament design, antique-style Edison bulbs have become increasingly popular in recent years, with many of them adorning stylish fixtures in dining spaces in restaurants or lobbies in luxury hotels. However, traditional antique light bulbs are energy-inefficient and have short lifespans, while LED Edison bulbs feature a similar design but are more efficient and long-lasting.

“LED Edison bulbs lower energy costs while preserving the look and feel of vintage lighting, which many of our customers love. They look fantastic wherever they are used, from businesses to homes,” says 1000Bulbs.com CEO Kim Pedersen.

When the Energy and Independence Security Act (EISA) was signed, many people feared that antique bulbs would no longer be available. Yet the act, which prevented the manufacturing of incandescent light bulbs from 100W down to 40W, included many exclusions. One such exclusion was for specialty light bulbs, which antique light bulbs are categorized as. As LED prices have decreased, more and more people have chosen to upgrade from incandescent to LED lighting. However, there hasn’t been a suitable replacement for antique Edison bulbs—until now.

Currently available in chandelier, traditional A-shape, and Edison-style, these LED Edison bulbs use less than 10% of the energy of their incandescent counterparts. They each offer a warm 2200K color temperature, which is further tinted by an amber-colored coating on the glass. Rated to last 15,000 life hours, you would use an average of five incandescent antique bulbs to match the lifespan of just one of these LEDs. Those still wary about switching to these LED Edison bulbs may take comfort in the fact that they are each backed by a 3-year limited warranty.
