The lightbulb has undergone relatively few changes since it was introduced in the late 1870s. But new technology is finally here and is very affordable.
LEDs are available in an array of light “color temperatures” like warm white, soft white and bright white. (Color temperature is measured in kelvins. An LED bulb with a light color output similar to an incandescent is between 2,700 and 3,500 kelvins.)
The most exciting news is that LEDs are even more efficient than CFLs. And if you haven’t made the switch, it’s time to replace those bulbs.
