Edison lightbulbs are the perfect choice when you want modern technology paired with vintage looking bulbs. Edison bulbs have an old-time design that allows you to see the “filament” inside the bulb. In incandescent Edison lightbulbs, the visible filament heats up to produce the light. But if you’ve picked an Edison bulb with LED technology, the filament is only for show. LED technology doesn’t use a filament to create light. Most Edison lightbulbs with LED technology don’t produce as much light per watt as incandescent bulbs. But most people are buying Edison lightbulbs for style instead of maximum brightness. Edison lightbulbs are available in many shapes, base sizes, filament shapes, and wattages. This gives you quite a few buying options.
