If you're looking for the classic design of a traditional light bulb without the environmentally damaging and energy-wasting disadvantages, then these LED filament bulbs are perfect for you. These bulbs can replicate the classic look of the filament bulb while keeping the power consumption to that of a LED, which is much lower than a traditional incandescent. Another benefit of LED filament bulbs is that they are accessible in a plethora of colours, including all white temperatures and light colours, giving you more options when lighting your home or business. Using LED technology wound into the filament shape of an Edison bulb, you have a decorative but modern light bulb, perfect for any setting.Dimmable Bayonet Cap Cool White E27
The biggest difference between LED light bulbs and LED filament bulbs is the design, with LED filament light bulbs designed to replicate the look of a traditional or 'Edison' bulb. Performance doesn't change across standard LED bulbs and LED filament lighting, both offering up to 90% energy consumption savings and dramatically reduced running and replacement costs when compared to old filament bulbs. LED filament bulbs are typically used in more decorative fixtures in comparison to standard LED lights which are for more practical uses.
LED filament bulbs are typically brighter than their incandescent equivalent because they use energy more efficiently and don't waste energy creating heat. Some LED filament bulbs are dimmable, meaning the lumen output can be controlled by the user. This makes LED vintage bulbs more versatile as they are bright enough to be used in a practical fitting but can be dimmed to suit a decorative piece. Overall, LED filament bulbs can be as bright as any standard LED bulb and can have a lumen output of up to 1500lm.
In short, no. While every bulb must generate some heat, LED bulbs are particularly good at dissipating the heat through a heat sink at the bottom of the bulb, keeping it cool and functional. This dramatically reduces energy consumption by using the energy to generate light instead of heating a filament, making it more energy-efficient and lowering running costs. Because the diodes in an LED filament bulbs are spaced out, even more so than standard LED bulbs, they produce almost no heat compared to other light bulbs.
