When choosing between LED, Incandescent or Filament globes, it’s important to consider the purpose and setting for which you’re using your lights. LED globes are much lower wattage and can last for up to 40,000 hours, making them the ideal choice if you’re planning to run your lights consistently over a long period. If you’re looking for a more affordable option, we’d recommend incandescent globes. However, these have a shorter life span of around 2000 hours, so they are best suited for short term use. Carbon filament globes are very popular for their warm candlelight-like colour, which LED globes can’t quite replicate. However, they are the slightly more expensive option among the three.
