40W-Eq Soft White LED Bulb
If this is your first time shopping for LEDs, we recommend this Energy Star certified LED Bulb. It emits a warm, mild glow and can replace any 40W bulb in most fixtures. It is fully dimmable and we recommend it for semi-directional lighting like down lighting, desk lamps, hanging fixtures, accent lighting, and closet lighting.
The high quality LED turns on instantly and has no hum or flicker unlike many CFLs. This A19 is dimmable, will last for about 23 years, and produces the same white light as a 40W incandescent bulb. It lasts 16 times longer than incandescent bulbs and uses 80% less power, making it a great way to reduce your electricity bill and your carbon impact.

Feit Electric has been in the lighting business for over 30 years and makes top of the line, affordable LEDs. They manufacture in China (like most lighting manufacturers) but design and test the bulbs in the US. Their lamps give a warm, bright light which is comparable to traditional incandescent light bulbs. As with all LEDs, these lights use about 90% less energy than incandescent and about 50% less energy than CFLs. Using these bulbs is an easy way to immediately reduce your carbon footprint.
All of our LED light bulbs receive the ‘Energy Efficiency’ icon because they use less energy than other lighting options. LEDs use 80-90% less energy than incandescent light bulbs to make the same amount of light. Including the extra energy it takes to manufacture and dispose of the technologically sophisticated LED lamps, these lamps have a carbon footprint that is about 75% smaller than their incandescent equivalents.
LED bulbs use only 1/10 of the power required by incandescent bulbs. Since lighting accounts for 11-20% of most people’s electric bill, you can expect significant savings if you replace most of your incandescent or halogen bulbs with LEDs.
*Energy savings are based on using one bulb for its 25,000 or 40,000 hr rated life at 11¢/kWh. Lifetime estimates assume usage of 3 hrs/day. Comparisons are based on an incandescent bulb lifetime of 1,500 hrs.
