Questions & Answers
how many lumens is the sylvania 40 watt incandescent ceiling fan bulb
Asked by Mark July 9, 2019
THD website says 310, but the bulb itself says 350.
can it be used in an oven
Asked by cj September 5, 2018
NO-they are not certified for ovens, they are not appliance bulbs. You need to buy special appliance bulbs for that that can stand the heat in ovens and the cold in refrigerators.
These are fantastic little light bulbs. I know LED and Compact Florescent are all the rage, but nothing beats a nice incandescent light bulb in a lamp with a shade. These are tiny and at 310 lumens I was worried about them being bright enough, they are 40 Watt and I was replacing a 60 watt equivalent CLF, but to my delight they gave matching brightness to the CFL's. And with a much softer and natural color too. see the attached picture, they really look great behind a shade.
Standard base soft white bulb with a compact profile perfectly suited for ceiling fans and decorative light fixtures where a smaller bulb is required. The light is bright, well balanced, leaning toward amber tones making it very gentle on the eyes. Not sure yet about it lasting twice as long but am hopeful. I really like this bulb color especially over the new LED versions.
40-Watt Double Life A15 Incandescent Light Bulb (2-Pack) review: This is a useful set of lightbulbs that can be used in most appliances and lamps. It advertises as double life so I hope this lasts a long time as we are used to LED lights that do last a long time. These are 40 watts which provide a soft glow, quite a bit more easy on the eye than 60 watt. There ya go!
These use a standard base and are the same shape as a traditional bulb but are smaller in length and diameter. We used them in two places. In our kitchen ceiling fans they aren't as noticeable and look nicer. See the pictures below to get an idea of the difference. Since they don't have the warm up time of a CFL, they give better immediate light. We also used them in a similarly shaded, 4 light guest bath fixture. There seems to be less glare, a warmer tone and 4-40 W bulbs is plenty of light.
Very bright and wonderful. Had been without a light in my refrigerator months due to the virus. So good to be able st see in there without pulling everything out. Thank you Home Depot for being willing to ship this to me when other stores would not.
