Integral LED retrofit Candle bulbs produce the same amount of light as equivalent filament and halogen bulbs while using only 15% of the energy. Therefore, instead of using 25-40W of power, a Candle LED bulb will only use only 3-7W. LED bulbs last more than 12 times longer too, so you save even more. The savings start as soon as you install them.
Just like filament and halogen Candle bulbs, there are a few important decisions to make to ensure you purchase the right bulb. LED Candles are available in two base types; bayonet (B22) and small Edison screw (SES / E14). Please check your light fitting. The next step is to choose between a frosted/opal or clear finish for your Candle bulb. Ask yourself: will my lamp be exposed or hidden (inside a lampshade)? What would look best in my light fitting? The choice is yours.
LED bulbs use far less energy (Watts) than a halogen or filament bulb, so using wattage to gauge light output no longer applies. Lumens are now used instead. The higher the lumen rating, the brighter the bulb. Until measurement by Lumens becomes mainstream, LED bulbs can be compared to halogen and filament bulbs using equivalent wattages e.g. 6.5W (LED) = 40W.
Warm or Cool white? Confusingly, colour temperature (measured in Kelvins (K)) does not describe the actual temperature of a bulb, but the colour it produces, and counter-intuitively; the higher the colour temperature, the "cooler" an LED bulb will appear.
There are no rules - if you like the slightly yellow light of traditional incandescent/halogen lighting then warm white is the right choice, especially for living rooms, dining rooms and bedrooms. If you prefer a more modern look, then a slightly blue, cool white bulb may be preferable in a hallway or study.
LED bulbs are available in dimmable (with compatible dimmers) and non-dimmable versions. For best performance, use with a compatible LED-ready dimmer switch.
LED bulbs are instant on; there is no warm-up time like with many compact florescent bulbs (CFL). CFLs contain a small amount of mercury, whereas LED bulbs are mercury-free, so are safer and better for the environment.
Integral is a European technology company established in 1989. Integral has become known for delivering high-quality products to the market that offer great value. The LED range has been carefully developed and rigorously benchmarked at Integral's in-house light laboratory. Technical support is also provided.
Integral LED lamps have been awarded several prestigious accolades including Which? Best Buy (Spotlights) and "Recommended" by Lux magazine.
Not all LED bulbs are the same. Integral LED products are designed to perform. Integral only uses high-quality components from industry-leading suppliers. LEDs last longer when they operate at cooler temperatures, so Integral LED bulbs feature advanced thermal management to keep them cool. For a professional, even light distribution, Integral products have anti-glare refractors or Fresnel optics. The packaging clearly states all the relevant technical details and Integral LED products meet all applicable European electrical and safety regulations.
With LED lighting not only are you using less electricity, which means less resources are used in energy generation, you will also use fewer bulbs which saves on manufacturing, transport and disposal. All this adds up to less waste and a lower carbon footprint, which is great news for the environment.
Integral LED is a member of Recolight which means customers have access to free recycling via nationwide collection points.
havent tried it yet as only bought one and thought i was buying a pack of three. Have to order two more as it will look odd in my light fittingPublished 8 months ago by Miss Kay
They give a nice glow of warm light. Much nicer than the cold clear light. Very good for mood lighting.Published 15 months ago by denis
A good light bulb, with no problems. Eco friendly; great energy savings and cheap to run!
What more can I say.
So great light bulbs, not goiung warm if you kept on during the day, safe for kids room as well as saving enegyPublished 18 months ago by Mohammed Mulla
