Evolution of the light bulb

Notes:

  • For many years, lighting for the home and other uses was produced by an oil lamp. The sources of fuel included a wide variety of plants such as nuts, seeds, and animal fats (butter, fish oil, shark liver, whale blubber, seals). The oil lamp was eventually replaced in the 1850s by the kerosene lamp – using fuel derived from petroleum products. This source of lighting has been used for thousands of years.
  • By the 19th century, different inventors from across the globe began researching lighting sources from electricity – from this research came the incandescent light bulb that was perfected and patented by Thomas Edison in the late 1800’s. The incandescent light bulb (improved over time) become the lighting choice for the past 100 years.
  • But incandescent bulbs take a lot of electricity to operate. Given the energy shortages during WWII and the oil crisis of the mid-1970s, the fluorescent tube and compact fluorescent lighting (CFL) became a popular lighting source to reduce energy use.
  • And now today, the fastest developing lighting technologies is the light-emitting diode (or LED). LEDs use a semiconductor to convert electricity into light. The advantage of LEDs is the low energy-use – approximately 75% less energy consumption than incandescent lighting. And LEDs are being produced in all shapes and sizes that give us the incandescent styles that we love.

The light bulb of choice

Notes:

  • The light-emitting diode (LED) is one of today’s most energy-efficient lighting technologies. Quality LED light bulbs last longer, are more durable, and offer comparable or better light quality than other types of lighting.
  • But more importantly, LED bulbs are approximately 75% more energy efficient than incandescent lighting.
  • But what about the styles and size? Earlier LEDs bulbs were limited – nothing like the decorative incandescent bulbs that we use for our chandeliers, bath vanity, and other lighting sources that added decor to kitchen, bath and living areas.
  • But no more! Advances in LEDs now come in styles and sizes that look and work exactly as our incandescent ancestors. You will be surprised by the varying types of LED bulbs that look exactly like our regular lighting.

For specialized lighting

Notes:

  • When you need specialized lighting styles such as the round bulb lighting for the bath vanity – or candelabra styled bulb lighting for the chandelier – or lighting that has a different base fitting – you will likely find LEDs available for your needs.
  • So why not jump over to LEDs given the energy savings and the longevity of the bulb? It’s a win-win lighting source for the home.
  • You can find LEDs is clear and frosted glass. And as the demand grows, the price of LEDs will become competitive with other lighting options.

Looking for the classic look

Notes:

  • Vintage and classic lighting fixtures are coming back – especially for kitchen and dining areas. You can find some neat pendant lighting fixtures that bring back the classic times.
  • So you are going to need a classic looking light bulb to fit the lighting fixture.
  • Make sure to select dimmer LEDs for kitchen and dining lights where you want to have dimming capabilities. Regular LEDs will not work with dimmer switches – you must select dimming LEDs.
  • QUESTION?
    can you put LED lights on a dimmer?

LEDs offer color and WIFI

Notes:

  • Another advantage of LEDs is the color and color shapes that can be produced. You can find any color LED that is blue, green, yellow and even black. In fact, most Christmas tree and outdoor lighting with its varying colors are LED.
  • And another advantage is that you can find programmable (smart) LEDs that can be control via WIFI or home assistants. You can control and change the lighting color, mood, and frequency with you mobile device. You can also set up timers to turn on and off different lighting elements throughout your home.
