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.
