Edison lamps provide good colour rendering
An Edison lamp can make it seem much warmer in a home than it actually is. The filament bulbs
used have a much warmer, more yellow tone than LED lights
, which tend to make objects appear too washed out or stark. A squirrel cage filament, on the other hand, can provide a softer tone within the home that makes it look more inviting, and creates a warm glow around everything that it falls on.
Filament bulbs are cheap to produce
One reason people keep coming back to the filament bulb to provide the lighting in their homes and offices is that they are much cheaper than LED bulbs
in the stores. This is because they are much cheaper for manufacturers to produce. One of the main reasons for the drop in costs between Edison lamps and other kinds of bulbs is the materials that are used in the production. Filament bulbs lack the use of mercury, toxic alloys and semiconductors that not only increase the production cost of bulbs, but also makes it more difficult to dispose of. A squirrel cage bulb is a lot easier to recycle than other kinds of bulbs, as plants are still not prepared for the handling of such toxic substances.
The Edison Light Bulb Provides Options
If you've ever been interested in lights that can strobe or be dimmed, then filament bulbs are definitely the choice you want to go with. This leaves customers with options in terms of creating an atmosphere that is pleasing and controlling how much light they want in a room at a given time.
