LED Light Bulbs are known to be up to 80% more efficient than traditional light bulbs such as fluorescent or incandescent. In addition to efficiency, they can last 10x longer than many other bulbs, delivering over 10,000 hours and/or over 10 years of lighting. This longevity will save you not only the cost and hassle of frequent bulb replacement but will also save you on your energy bill.
Our choice picks for the best-LED light bulbs are listed below. Depending on your needs, these bulbs will work perfectly in almost any room in your home including the bedroom, living room, family room or dining room. And since they are available in a variety of lighting temperatures, these lights can easily go from inside the home to an enclosed outdoor space.
Besides being energy-efficient and money-saving, the beauty of LED light bulbs is that they emit a clean, beautiful light output. This means the colors will remain true and natural throughout the lifetime of the bulb.
1. Philips LED Non-Dimmable A19 Frosted Light Bulb
These bulbs fit standard medium base fixtures and have the look and feel of classic bulbs. With these bulbs, you get a bright, yet warm light with exceptional clarity and a high color rendering index which is ideal for project lighting and brightening large spaces.
Pros: The long life of these bulbs reduces the hassle and expense of frequent bulb changes.
Cons: If you like the look and feel of a dimmer, these might not be the best bulbs as they do not work with dimming switches.
2. AmazonBasics LED Light Bulb Pack
These standard bulbs from AmazonBasics make an excellent buy if you’re looking for a long-lasting LED light to replace your old incandecent bulbs. These can last up to 15 years if you use them for an average of three hours per day. We also like that the listing offers a good array of wattages and pack sizes.
Pros: Can last up to 15 years depending on use.
Cons: Cannot change colors.
3. Great Eagle A19 LED Light Bulb Pack
These bulbs come in a “daylight” color, which is a bit softer and less harsh than many LED lights. Our biggest issue with most LEDs is that the white is very surgical and almost too clean. These fix that issue by acting softer and less like an operating room. The bulbs come in warm white, soft white, cool white, and daylight.
Pros: Lasts 10,000 hours over a span of around nine years. UL-listed.
Cons: The lighting tone may be different from some of the light bulbs already used in your home.
