I swear I think I have been changing out light bulbs in our house since the day we moved in 16 years ago. First CFLs then a whole range of LEDs.
We always were big on lighting, I LOVE bright homes. The home we just sold had a front door foyer and great room with 16 foot ceilings and windows all the way up. Never even put curtains on them, but did have them 3m night vision tinted.
Anyway just giving that background so others may understand. I always buy the brightest bulb I can which is pretty much a 100 watt equivalent.
About two years ago, maybe more, for me and our house we found the holy grail. Really nice bright bulbs with realistic indoor color temperature, not to blue, not to yellow just right for us and nice and bright. I buy them when Costco puts them on sale and stock up on them. In fact I already know any bulbs in our new home, IF they can be changed out will get changed out to these if it helps anyone.
Im posting right from the manufacturers website. Everyone will know the company and they also make cheaper bulbs but these are their higher end ones and would expect them to have good service life.
In the couple years we had them, there has been no noticeable color shift and no early failures.
Explore a broad selection of energy-efficient bulbs from LEDs to CFLs and a large selection of traditional Incandescent and Halogen bulbs.
Keep in mind the above link is for the 3000k color temperature which you will see printed at the top of the box, this is the color temperature we like and that is what my comment is based on. The manufacturer also sells in the same exact box a 5000k color temperature and the only difference is 5000k is printed in that small band on top of the box. I say that because our personal preference is 3000k we dont like 5000k.
These 3000k are not as yellow as other brands, really pleasant, again, for us.
Not easy to find but worth the effort. Other than Costco, Amazon does but have to be careful between 5000k and 3000k there is a third party seller right now selling 4 packs for $11. I am sure there are others but it does take some searching.
Amazon Feit 100w equal. LED
