If you’re looking to make the switch from incandescent to LED lighting, now may be a good time. The Home Depot struck a deal with the Lighting Science Group Corporation and is the exclusive seller of an affordable line of ECOSMART LED products. One bulb in the product line, the A19 LED 40-watt equivalent, sells for $19.97 each.
The A19 LED uses 8.5 watts, has a brightness of 429 lumens, and has a color temperature of 3032 K. It’s dimmable and carries a five-year warranty.
Other than the A19, the new LED line also includes PAR38, PAR30, PAR20, MR16, and G25 bulbs. They’re built in the U.S.A. and expected to last 50,000 hours at 7 hours per day, 365 days a year.
The Home Depot expects to sell these energy-efficient lights in stores starting sometime in September, but they’ve been popular and difficult to keep in stock, according to the New York Times.
