New LED bulbs blend energy efficiency and warm lighting
In addition to price, one of the barriers to adopting LED lights in the home has been the color of the light. Some early LEDs produced different hues of light, from yellowish to crisp white. While the LED lights saved energy, they didn't always show off a home in a good light.
For homeowners looking for energy-efficient lighting as well as light that will flatter their home, GE has launched a new line of LED bulbs that offer a full spectrum of light.
Ideal for enhancing décor and architectural accent features in the kitchen, dining and living room, GE reveal lighting technology filters out dull yellow rays and delivers crisp, white light. Making reds appear redder and whites whiter, this color enhanced, full spectrum of light illuminates bold design elements—such as an exposed brick wall and high-impact fabrics.
So often we just take the color of light for granted—you flip the switch, and you get light. But GE reveal transforms a room and dramatically reveals finishes and furnishings in a way that traditional lighting cannot,” said Mary Beth Gotti, GE's residential lighting design expert and manager of the GE Lighting Institute. “GE reveal LED lighting brings energy savings and a fresh new look to a room, enhancing colors and removing the yellowish haze that we don’t even realize is there until it’s gone.”
GE reveal LED lighting appeals to the energy-efficient lighting consumer looking to make a design statement. The GE reveal LED bulb uses 80 percent less energy than the traditional incandescent and lasts 13.7 years based on three hours of operation per day. The LED bulb also has the familiar size and shape of an incandescent bulb and offers dimming controls to create an ambiance for entertaining or simple everyday living.
GE reveal LED lighting is now available in 40- and 60-watt replacements for general purpose use, such as table and floor lamps, as well as the BR-30 indoor floodlight for track and recessed lighting in the kitchen, bathroom, dining and living room.
