FAQs

This section is the most important part of our website.  It’s where we have the chance to talk to you directly and be interactive.  We bring up topics that are factual to help you make your purchasing decisions, but we also share real world experiences to help make sense of LED lighting.  We give straight forward answers and don’t use big words to sound smart.

  • Dimmers

    • What does LED compatible mean?

      • Older dimmers were meant for use with older bulb technologies like incandescent and halogen.  LED bulbs do not dim the same way and should be clearly labeled as LED compatible dimmer or else.
      • Or else what?  Besides UL certifying older dimmers for use with incandescent and halogen bulbs for fire safety, you may experience flickering, noise, small range of dimming, and shortened life of bulb.
    • How do I know if my dimmer is LED compatible?

      • The easiest way to determine if your dimmer if LED compatible is to buy one along with your LED bulb purchase.  If your dimmer is older than a few years or you’re not sure, it probably isn’t LED compatible.
    • Shouldn’t dimmers be LED bulb compatible, the other way around?

      • We think so.  Since most LED bulbs all utilize similar design and topologies, dimmer companies should focus on building more robust dimmers that dim better with less noise.
    • I leave dimmer set to 100%, do I still have a dimmer?

      • Yes.  Even if your dimmer is set to 100% or Full, the bulb still sees and feels the dimmer.  If you leave the dimmer on 100% all the time, consider changing a standard on/off switch which will give you maximum life and eliminate noise.
    • Can I have 3-way?

      • Yes.  Please follow dimmer switch’s manufacturers installation instructions exactly.  If you are unable to and/or do not have the experience to do it, please hire an electrician.
    • My dimmer seems to work fine but I'm not sure if it's LED compatible.  Is this ok?

      • When in doubt, change it out.  A brand new dimmer will insure best performance and maximum longevity.
  • Dimmable vs. non-dimmable LED bulbs

    • What’s the difference?

      • Dimmable bulbs contain circuitry that works with dimmer switches to dim the bulb.
      • Can a dimmable bulb be used with standard on/off switch?
      • Yes, but you can save a little money by buying non-dimmable bulb instead.
  • Does dimming an LED bulb save energy?

    • Yes!  Dimmable LED bulb power consumption scales with the dimmer.  If you dim to 50%, then roughly 50% energy reduction.  The bulbs will last longer when dimmed, an added bonus.
  • How do I choose a color?

    • 100% personal preference.  As a rule of thumb, 2700K replaces incandescent bulbs, 3000K replaces halogen bulbs, and 4000K is a common fluorescent tube color.
    •  The color descriptors like warm, soft, bright, cool, sunlight, etc vary from manufacturer to manufacturer and are only used as a guide.  Great Eagle uses warm white for 2700K, bright white for 3000K, and cool white for 4000K.  Keep in mind this is color and not the brightness of the bulb.
    • As a starting point, 2700K is best described as warm, cozy, and traditional ambiance.  3000K generally is the most neutral or standard color that will fit in almost any application.  4000K is best characterized as modern, clean, and white in appearance, but not so white that it looks blue.
  • Types of bulbs?

    • BR vs PAR?

      Common question is what differences are there between PAR and BR bulbs?  The most common application of PAR bulbs used to be for recessed can lighting.  As BR bulbs have become readily available, it has almost completely replaced PAR bulbs for interior recessed housings.   Why?  PAR bulbs have a narrower beam angle.  This is great for spot lighting of a vase or picture on the wall but can be harsh and causes more shadows in general ambient lighting applications.  BR bulbs have a very wide beam angle which lends itself for wall to wall lighting and less shadows.  See diagrams below.

    • What is difference between A19 and A21, BR30 and BR40

      The A in A19 stands for Arbitrary (or standard) shape bulb.  Lamp size (maximum lamp diameter) is expressed by a number representing eighths of an inch (1⁄8” = 3.2mm). For example: an "A19" size bulb is 19-eighths of an inch or 2 3⁄8” (54mm) in diameter at its maximum dimension.  See examples below.

      The BR in BR30 and BR40 stand for Bulbous Reflector.  Using the same definition above, the BR30 is 3 3/4” maximum width and BR40 can be a maximum of 5” wide.

    • 3-way bulbs

      • 3 way bulbs are capable of operating with 3 different brightness levels.  It’s important that a lamp specifically designed for 3 way bulbs be used without a dimmer switch.
      • The 3 way bulb uses a very old base design from before 1930 and unfortunately remains the standard today.  There is an inherit reliability issue due to this.
  • Can I mix bulbs?

    If using a dimmer, do not mix bulbs.  Dimmable bulbs sharing a dimmer switch interact with each other and it’s important to have all bulbs of the same model# and brand.  If on/off switch is being used, mixing bulbs is usually not a problem.

  • Warranty

    Please see the warranty section for details.  But first contact us.  We can usually take care of you with a simple email.  See the contact us form at bottom of page.

  • Is Great Eagle UL certified?

    UL does not certify bulb manufacturers but certifies individual products.  All of Great Eagle’s LED bulbs are tested and certified by UL.

  • Life of bulb?

    • The standard guideline is the number of hours it takes the LED bulb to reach 70% of its initial lumen value.  The Federal Trade Commission uses 3 hours per day of operation as it’s guideline.  What’s more impressive than 25,000 hour or 22 years ratings is that the bulbs actually operate much longer than this but at a reduced brightness.
    • Note that the measurements are an industry standard and in general can be diminished by real world conditions such as power surges, vibration, humidity, and non-ideal power conditions.

LED bulb retrofit time is now.  Over the past 5 years, the prices of LED bulbs on average have dropped from $20 to under $5.  The brightness, reliability, light quality, and dimmability have all gone up.  As the industry has matured, the emphasis has gone from an expensive novelty to the most affordable way to save money on your power bills.  Great Eagle Lighting has led the industry in focusing on bringing production costs and component costs to the bare minimum in order to make LED lighting a reality for everyone.  The rapid decrease in pricing has slowed down and will be very minimal moving forward.  This means now is the time to convert all the bulbs to LED.

Light bulb life.  What exactly does this mean?

22.8 years vs .4 years is even better than it sounds, here’s why. For the older incandescent and halogen bulbs rated at .4 years, this means if you operate the bulb for 3 hours per day, it should last about .4 years.  For LED bulbs, most are rated at 22.8 years.  There is one big difference.  The .4 years for incandescent bulbs is when the bulbs dies.  The 22.8 years for an LED bulb is when the bulb is down to 70% of its initial brightness.  So you will get many more hours of diminished light after the specification.
