GLS is short for General Lamp Service which is the standard light bulb shape, having changed very little in design since their invention in the early 1800s. These are what are known as a "traditional light bulb" and are commonly used in a variety of light fittings.
Our LED GLS Light bulbs are available with an E27 (screw in) or B22 (twist in) cap our LED GLS light bulbs offer more light than an LED candle or LED golf ball making them perfect for table lamps, floor lamps and also ceiling lights too.
LED GLS bulbs have the classic traditional light bulb shape with all of the design, colour temperatures, and benefits of LEDs, saving you money and energy too.
LED GLS with up to 3-year guarantee for added reassurance.
High quality LED bulbs for improved performance and reduced energy.
Please note our bulbs can not be exchanged or refunded once purchased.
LED Dimming can be a little confusing, and because there are no standards in place for LED dimming, there is no actual guarantee that a certain bulb will work with a certain dimmer. Incompatibilities between bulbs and dimmers can cause flickering, reduced dimming ranges, and can even cause damage and reduce the life span of the lamp. We recommend that you show your electrician your bulbs before purchasing an LED dimmer to ensure they are compatible.
LED bulbs don't generally dim as smoothly as "old fashioned" bulbs so your flight could be at 100% and then drop to say 70% then 50% light levels. However the benefits of LED light bulbs outweigh the negatives.
They are long life and very cost effective to run!
LED light bulbs are the most environmentally friendly and cost effective way of lighting your home, They have replaced their predecessor which was the low energy bulb, This bulb was a low slower to warm up and used more energy than an LED light bulb which also illuminates instantly.
LED light bulbs are the most energy efficient bulb on the market, they are fantastic at reducing energy costs and can last up to 10 x longer than a standard incandescent (traditional) light bulb and are much more sustainable too. Due to the life expectancy of an LED bulb being so much longer than an energy saving bulb or incandescent bulb you also save money in the cost of replacing the bulb too.
Some lights are also available as LED integrated meaning the light source is physically built into the light, so no need to add a bulb! which is even better for maintenance, often they come with an extended guarantee too.
Most lights are compatible with LED energy saving light bulbs, They are available as "Screw In" which are known as Edison Screw Cap (ES for short) or E27. Other common types are Small Edison Screw (SES for short) or E14. and also as "Twist In" which are known as Bayonet Cap (BC for short) or B22.
Other types of LED bulb include LED GU10 bulbs for spot light and recessed downlights and LED G9 bulbs which are really popular for modern lighting as the bulb is a lot smaller and more discreet.
Below is a table to give an idea of how much energy can be saved by switching to an LED energy saving light bulb.
