2700K vs. 3000K: Which is recommended for home and residential applications?
What’s the biggest seller between the 2700 & 3000? Do most prefer to use 2700 in bedrooms & living room, & 3000 in bathrooms, kitchen & laundry room? Is the 95 CRI best? Can they be used in enclosed ceiling fixtures? Running low on my old GE Reveal incandescent bulbs, plus would like to save on electricity.
We have shared a blog post link below that compares the 2700K and 3000K color temperatures for home installations, which we hope proves to be helpful.
As CRI is a measurement comparing the quality of light output to that of natural sunlight on a scale from 0-100, we can confirm that the 95 CRI offered by our products will result in a very high quality of light output.
Further, as the LED light bulbs contain internal circuitry which benefits from a moderate amount of airflow for heat dissipation, we do not recommend utilizing them in enclosed fixtures.
Are y’all working on the development of your bulbs that can be used in enclosed fixtures like in my kitchen, hallways, laundry room & closets? Right now I can only use these for a bathroom vanity, a pendant light & lamps. Which is your bestseller for residential? The 2700 or 3000?
What do you recommend for use in enclosed fixtures to avoid flicker? Incandescent or halogen rather than LED that can be used in enclosed fixtures?
We are happy to confirm that we look forward to improving our flicker-free products to allow for enclosed fixture installation down the road, though we do not have an expected availability date for such a product at this time.
We can also confirm that as many of our LED lights contain hardware and wiring that traditional halogen and incandescent bulbs do not utilize, they can malfunction when the heat being generated is not able to dissipate via a moderate amount of airflow.
Our Ultra High 95 CRI A19 5W LED Filament Bulb for Home & Residential might be a great option as they can be installed within enclosed fixtures without the need for airflow.
Our customers tend to prefer 2700K for living areas such as bedrooms, where the 3000K temperature is more commonly installed within kitchens and bathrooms. Unfortunately, we do not have any sales data on hand regarding which option is most popular overall.
That said, please feel free to take advantage of our 30-day return policy if you would like to order both options to make direct product comparisons.
