The End of a Lighting Era

incandescent will no longer be sold in CIn 2018 California said goodbye to the incandescent light bulb. Thomas Edison gave the first public demonstration of his incandescent light bulb in December 1879, we’ve continued to use this technology for almost 140 years. However, as more efficient light bulbs have emerged states are moving toward energy saving options.

Why the change?

Congress passed the Energy Bill of 2007 which was signed into law by George Bush. The law completely phases out the incandescent bulb by 2020 in the United States. California is the only state that phased out incandescent in 2018, two years early.

What happens to all the incandescent bulbs?

Retailers will sell all remaining inventory on the shelves. Incandescent bulbs will not be manufactured. Manufacturers had 11 years to expand their offering to more energy efficient lighting products.

How will this impact consumers?

There are 250 million incandescent light bulbs in use in California according to the Natural Resources Defense Council. When consumers replace the quarter of a million incandescents with LED light bulbs, consumers will save roughly $1 billion on electricity.

What will replace traditional light bulbs?

There are two alternatives are LED and CFL (compact fluorescent) bulbs. CFL lights contain Mercury which is a hazardous material and takes time to warm up to full brightness. LED light bulbs contain no mercury, turn on within a second and are shatter resistant. They are safe for your entire family and recyclable. You can learn more about comparing the different lighting options here.

Viribright’s full line of LED light bulbs will make the switch easy. Our light bulbs are UL listed, which have been tested to meet all the safety requirements. We offer a dimmable option on a lot of our LED bulbs. All Viribright products have a 3-year, easy replacement warranty.

Comparing LED vs CFL vs Incandescent Light Bulbs

3 minute read – The Ultimate Guide by VIRIBRIGHT (Charts, Tables, and more)

Over the years, advances in technology have brought about innovations in how to light our homes and commercial buildings. In the beginning, all we had was the standard, incandescent light bulb. Now we have compact fluorescent lamps (CFL) and light emitting diodes or LED for short. We are going to tackle the question… which light bulb type reigns supreme? There are many variables, so let’s dig in!

Quick Menu – click below

Viribright comparison between candle light, incandescent bulbs, CLF and LED light bulbs. Shows the lifespan difference as well as efficiency and color rendering

LED VS CFL Brightness

Are LED lights brighter than or equal to Compact Fluorescent (CFL) bulbs? The trick is to understand the technology. In short, LED and CFL as technologies do not have a difference in brightness intrinsically. Brightness is determined by lumens. Lumens is best described as the measurement of light. A single CFL and LED bulb might have the same lumen (brightness) output but vary greatly in the amount energy needed to generate that level of brightness.

Many LED bulbs in the past were not omnidirectional which gave the upper hand to CFL in various scenarios. For example, in a floor lamp, a CFL would perform better because of the light coverage was, at the time, much broader. In most recessed lighting (ceiling), however, the LED would have greater efficacy. Fast forward to new LED generations, and we see the little light-emitting diodes surpassing CFLs in overall energy consumption, color and even becoming more competitively priced in the marketplace.

Lumen & Wattage Comparison

The chart below illustrates the amount of brightness in lumens you can expect from different wattages of light bulbs. LED bulbs require much less wattage than CFL or Incandescent light bulbs, which is why LEDs are more energy-efficient and longer lasting than their competitors.

How to understand this table – look at the lumens (brightness) in the far left column, then compare how many watts of power each light bulb type requires to produce that level of brightness. The lower the wattage needed, the better.

Lumens (Brightness) LED Watts (Viribright)  CFL Watts Incandescent Watts 
400 – 500 6 – 7W 8 – 12W 40W
650 – 850 7 – 10W 13 – 18W 60W
1000 – 1400 12 – 13W 18 – 22W 75W
1450-1700+ 14 – 20W 23 – 30W 100W
2700+ 25 – 28W 30 – 55W 150W

Power consumption Image

To compare different light bulbs, you need to know about lumens. Lumens, not watts, tell you how bright a light bulb is, no matter the type of bulb. The more lumens, the brighter the light. Labels on the front of light bulb packages now state a bulb’s brightness in lumens, instead of the bulb’s energy usage in watts. When shopping for your next light bulb, simply find the lumen output you’re looking for (the bigger the brighter) and choose the bulb with the lowest wattage (the lower the better).

Are CFL or LEDs more cost-effective?

To examine the cost comparison, let’s take a look at a standard 60-watt replacement incandescent bulb in this example. The energy consumption to use a bulb like this would cost about $90 over the course of 10 years. For an LED, running over the course of 10 years the actual cost would be only $18 to operate. Take a look at the table below for a breakdown.

LED vs CFL vs Incandescent Cost Incandescent CFL LED (Viribright)
Watts used 60W 14W 7W
Average cost per bulb $1 $2 $4 or less
Average lifespan 1,200 hours 8,000 hours 25,000 hours
Bulbs needed for 25,000 hours 21 3 1
Total purchase price of bulbs over 20 years $21 $6 $4
Cost of electricity (25,000 hours at $0.15 per kWh) $169 $52 $30
Total estimated cost over 20 years $211 $54 $34

Winner: LED (in the long run)

The above chart shows a clear-cut winner when considering the price over time with energy consumption factored in. In addition to LED’s cost savings, there are also government-backed rebates in some scenarios for Energy Star products.

Do CFL or LED bulbs last longer?

Quick Answer: LEDcomparing cfl, incandescent, and cfl light bulbs

Although LED technology for use in bulbs has not been on the market for long, the lifespan estimates for the new technology are astounding and leave CFL and incandescents with little to show for in comparison. With an astonishing lifespan of 25,000 hours, LED light bulbs are the undisputed, heavyweight champion in longevity. The next best are CFL bulbs which bring in a respectable 8,000 hours of average life expectancy. Keep in mind, most tests are based on a running time of 3 hours per day.

Energy Star – Choose A Light Guide

energy_starThe ENERGY STAR Choose A Light Guide

Usage Tips

To have the best experience possible, keep the following tips in mind:

Hold the base and not the ‘glass’ to screw in the bulb.
Read the packaging to see where each bulb should be used. Not all ENERGY STAR certified bulbs are designed to work in every socket. Most photocells and timers are not designed to work with LEDs. Check with your photocell or timer manufacturer for compatibility.

Every time you are using an ENERGY STAR certified product you are saving energy, money, and greenhouse gas emissions.

ENERGY STAR is a joint program of the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency helping us all save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices.

Light Temperature Tips: Choose Your Mood

While most LED light bulbs come in “warm” colors to match the yellowish light of incandescent bulbs, you can also choose “cooler” colors with whiter and bluish hues for reading and task lighting. Color in lighting is measured on the Kelvin scale (K) and is marked on the bulb packaging. For warmer color look for 2700K, 4000K gives a bright white light and 6000–6500K is bluer and most like daylight.

Bulb-Specific Tips: How to Choose

A-shaped bulbs combine the efficiency of the spiral bulbs, with the look and feel of the traditional incandescents. These products are great for consumers who don’t A-Line_200x200like the look of the spiral bulbs but still want efficient lighting. You can use A-shaped bulbs wherever you used to use traditional incandescent bulbs, such as clip-on lamp shades. Check the packaging for compatibility with dimmers and three-way fixtures.

Globe_200x200Globe

Globe-shaped bulbs are ideal for use where you can see the bulbs, like bathroom vanity bars and ceiling pendants. A globe bulb is basically a spiral bulb with a decorative cover.

Linear_200x200Tubed Bulbs

Basically straight versions of the the old CFL spiral bulbs, tubed bulbs work well in lamps that have slender covers such as wall sconces.

Candle_200x200Candle Bulbs

These products are ideal for use in decorative fixtures where you can see the light bulb. The sleek shape also allows you to use them in tight fitting light fixtures where a covered globe won’t fit.

Flood_200x200Indoor Reflector Bulbs

Reflector bulbs are perfect for providing directional light — think of recessed ceiling lights in kitchens or ceiling fans. Indoor reflector bulbs are much smaller then those that are designed for outdoor use. Some indoor reflector bulbs can be used with a dimmer — the packaging will tell you.

Benefits of LED Light Bulbs

Long-lasting – LED bulbs last up to 10 times as long as compact fluorescents, and far longer than typical incandescents.

Durable – since LEDs do not have a filament, they are not damaged under circumstances when a regular incandescent bulb would be broken. Because they are solid, LED bulbs hold up well to jarring and bumping.

Cool – these bulbs do not cause heat build-up; LEDs produce 3.4 btus/hour, compared to 85 for incandescent bulbs. Common incandescent bulbs get hot and contribute to heat build-up in a room. LEDs prevent this heat build-up, thereby helping to reduce air conditioning costs in the home.

Mercury-free – no mercury is used in the manufacturing of LEDs.

More efficient – LED light bulbs use only 2-17 watts of electricity (1/3rd to 1/30th of Incandescent or CFL). LED bulbs used in fixtures inside the home save electricity, remain cool and save money on replacement costs since LED bulbs last so long. Small LED flashlight bulbs will extend battery life 10 to 15 times longer than with incandescent bulbs.

Cost-effective – although LEDs are initially expensive, the cost is recouped over time and in battery savings. LED bulb use was first adopted commercially, where maintenance and replacement costs are expensive. But the cost of new LED bulbs has gone down considerably in the last few years. and are continuing to go down. Today, there are many new LED light bulbs for use in the home, and the cost is becoming less of an issue. To see a cost comparison between the different types of energy-saving light bulbs, see our Light Bulb Comparison Charts.

Light for remote areas and portable generators – because of the low power requirement for LEDs, using solar panels becomes more practical and less expensive than running an electric line or using a generator for lighting in remote or off-grid areas. LED light bulbs are also ideal for use with small portable generators which homeowners use for backup power in emergencies.
