LED bulb giveaway event

So we will be giving away a LED bulb this weekend (November 10th-13th) with a clothing or food item to benefit the local Veterans Shelter. This is the next generation LED bulbs with greater output, better color rendering and fully dimmable.

Let's compare LED against an equivalent incandescent light before we look at individual units.



PAR Halogen

15 Watt

3,000 Kelvin

25,000 Hour Life


Near Zero Heat







2,700 Kelvin

750 Hour Life


300 Degrees

The value proposition to LED has always been energy efficiency at now roughly 5 times that of incandescent. The bluish output of the original LEDs has been corrected to emulate the color of the halogen bulb (our whole appliance showroom is LED).

LED also does not project heat into the room like the incandescent at 300 degrees. This is a huge advantage especially with many lights over 50 watt and greater in the room. LED will also not fade artwork.

From November 10-13 with help from NSTAR, we will be giving away LED bulbs (one per household, please) and having a special on some others.

  • Bulbrite LED15PAR30WW - Equivalent to a 75PAR30. Originally $44.99, now $19.99. The 15 Watt is similar to a 75 watt halogen reflector bulb, which is the most common recessed bulb.
  • Bulbrite LED20PAR38WW - Equivalent to a 90PAR38. Originally $49.99, now $24.99. The 20 Watt LED is similar to a 90 watt halogen reflector bulb. The 90 watt is for taller ceilings.

The bulb giveaway ends November 13th at 8pm. Once again many thanks to NSTAR and the folks from Cadmus for sponsoring.

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.

My goal has always been simple: I want Yale to be the best retail experience anywhere. I have tried to create a compelling environment for customers and employees alike.
