GLS LED Lamps or bulbs are your traditional type of lightbulb with its classic, pear-like shape and are the most common type of bulb available today. They have been designed to look like incandescent lamps, but are now regarded to be widely used due to the increased energy savings. Since a ban on energy wasteful lamps, the GLS bulb is now the alternative for the traditional classic shape. GLS lamps are a direct replacement for conventional GLS bulbs but have all the benefits of LED lighting in a number of shapes including a golfball and candle bulb.

How do they work?

GLS LED lamps like incandescent lamps to have the same connection with either a B22 bayonet cap or an Edison E27 screw base. A typical GLS bulb uses between 4-14 watts of energy compared to the incandescent equivalents of 40 to 100 watts. Your energy consumption can be reduced up to 90% coupled with prolonged lifetime hours of nearly 25,000. These LED light bulbs are equally suited to both domestic and commercial applications.

Types of GLS LED Lamps

GLS LED lamps can come in a number of shapes and sizes, with some of the most popular bulbs being:

  • Traditional - This bulb has the same characteristics of a pear-shaped bulb.
  • Candle - A more elegant bulb such as the candle lamp, it's more decorative and they mimic the shape of a candle flame.
  • Golfball - It's slightly smaller than a traditional bulb with regards to height and width, also known as mini globe lamps.

How much power do LED’s use?

On average LED’s use 90% less power compared to incandescent bulbs. The reason for this is that LED’s are more efficient in converting energy into light.

How long do LED’s last for?

So we have mentioned how LED’s offer longer lifetimes and less maintenance needed, this is because it’s a type of solid-state lighting. It is less likely to fail completely, a well built LED GLS lamp can last up to 25,000 hours.

How can LED’s save you money?

It’s thought that around 20% of a households energy consumption comes from lighting, within commercial premises, this could be even more. The cost of switching to LED is soon outweighed with the savings made to a light source that uses a fraction of the energy.
