Frequently Asked Questions
A note about the color temperatures you see on this website:
Color Temperature or CCT refers to the color produced by the bulb. These range from a dark yellow to an almost blue sunlight color. Historically, having the option to select a color temperature was virtually nonexistent. However, with today’s LED technology, we are able to produce LEDs that produce many different light colors.
Since color temperature descriptions are not standardized throughout the industry (one manufacturer’s “Daylight” color may be described as a “Cool White” by another), we generally provide the more accurate Kelvin range on our products. A difference of a few hundred Kelvin (K) is usually indistinguishable to the human eye. For product descriptions on this website we generally use the following terms:
3000K-3500K: Warm White or WW
4000K-5000K: Cool White or CW
6000K-6500K: Daylight or DX
Most of our customers prefer to use a Warm White color in bedrooms and for general home use, where a relaxing atmosphere is desired. On the other end of the spectrum, Daylight bulbs are excellent for kitchens, garages, offices, and other work areas that demand a cleaner, whiter light. If you still have questions about color temperatures, please feel free to email us and we’ll do our best to assist you in picking out the color best suited for your application.
