$ .99 for BR30

really good deal, hard to find stock, but end up walking into MACKENZIE location and grabbed 12 soft white and 12 daywhite for the garage , they get them daily, but those fly off the shelve and almost always shows out on stock online.

Yes, I bought some Philips 60w dimmable bulbs from HomeDepot for .99 each.

Does anyone carry LED quartz bulb replacements? (300w type J / 118mm)

A lot of places are running out of stock of the cheaper bulbs. One co-op sold an entire pallet of the fifty cent bulbs, and the other I went to was nearly out. Bought myself 24 bulbs, which will last me a long time.

Still may buy some "nicer" ones for my main floor, but maybe not. Would need to be daylight and not warm white.

Thanks for the heads up on Philips homedepot clearance.

99 cents for a 3000K 5 watt dimmable PAR20 with clear plastic and it got some weight to it too.

I prefer Luminus 3000k bright white PAR20 vs the Philips bright white personally.

Found something new out about the efficiency program while purchasing LEDs from Costco and HD today. Went and cleaned HD out of their $0.99 PAR20 50W 3000k bulbs today, and then grabbed some A19 60W 3000k dimmables ($1.75/bulb) and A21 100W 3000k dimmables ($4.66/bulb). Costco blew HD out of the water on the A19 prices for equivalent bulbs.

On my HD receipt, the bulbs showed up as $0.99 and I paid tax on the post-rebate amount only.

At Costco, my bulbs came to $223.74, so i was expecting $11.19 in tax.... yet I was charged $17.69.... the difference being the GST on the $130 rebate. I asked about it and they told me as much as they disagree with it, it is how the program is structured.

"How is GST applied to price of a product in the program?
Under the Government of Canada rules, the GST is applied to the pre-rebate price and not the cost of the product after the rebate has been applied."

Poor HD is going to be in for a shock when they figure this one out....

So that's what, 30 cents a bulb out of a $6 bulb that probably costs $3? HD will do fine.

I don't know how POS are set regionally or nationally. Ontario Hydro had these rebates forever now, you thought they would learn from that already.

I signed up the first day it was possible and have yet to be contacted. Their website relays that a call would be received in early April, so I decided to get in on the discounts on bulbs that are available until June 11, as I have a feeling their term may be up by the time they get their shit together.

May be the only location that has them. Grabbed a few 3/$3boxes while there yesterday. Checked the Richmond Road location today to get more and they didn't have them.

I gave up hope on the Alberta Energy Efficiency program coming with the freebies.

Had an LED bulb die on me today. It's less than a year old, was "great value" brand from Walmart. Turned itself into a strobe light, which is pretty distracting over my breakfast table.
That's the first LED bulb I've had to replace so far. Hope the rest of them live up to the advertised longevity.

I'd say you get what you pay for. None of my Philips failed, except for one which was dropped from the ceiling to concrete floor during basement renos.

The Feit's were certainly disappointing when it comes to reliability though at that kind of failure rate, but again, they were way cheaper than the Philips at the time. Actually at $13 a pop 6 years ago, they were probably the cheapest ones you can get.

Ive had about 4 of my 50+ cree bulbs fail, they have a 10yr replacement warranty and just ship you a new one.

Sadly the longevity claim is for the led itself, not the driver circuit or anything else involved (solder joints, etc)

Of the 4 cree failures two were the bulb glass came unglues from the base, and 1 was completely shot, 1 flickered annoyingly

I have had one cree that was dead when I installed it (Twisted the housing off of the connector somehow) but all my philips have been fine for years now. Even the slim style which attract all of the bugs and then they die on top and then it is disgusting when you clean the lights. Did buy a bunch of the costco bulbs though during the energy rebate so will see how long those last. Did cree stop selling their bulbs in Canada though? I liked those flow-through bulbs for the garage but was never able to find the 100 w at homedepot, only 60 and now it looks like they carry no cree.

Sadly, most of my original Feit's have died. Around 2/3's of them. I'm down to 2 rooms using those.

I had about 50 Feit bulbs deployed in my house. Over the span of 1 year we saw about a 1-in-3 failure rate. They would start sporadically dimming and getting brighter again or would just completely fail to light. Some started flickering really badly.
I got curious about what the failure mode was so I cracked a bunch open and you could spot black dots on the LEDs themselves with no other obvious modes of failure.
For the ones that were still working about 1 in 2 were buzzing audibly.


Because all of the Philips bulbs I installed (about 20 total) are still working (some are as old as 5 years) I decided to replace all the Feit bulbs with Philips and gave the Feit to a family member who wouldn't hear the buzzing and doesn't mind the failure rate because they're free.

Saw about a 15% failure rate in my FEITs too. Super dissappointing as i did up the basement with 20 pot cans. Havnt found a comparable 5k par38 bulb yet.. which matters because i was told the bulb i bought were new stock, and apparantly are not being manufactured anymore.

I use TCP for these specific type of applications. Take your pick of the PAR38s: https://www.tcpi.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/17W-Hight-Output-PAR38.pdf

They have three 5000k PAR38s in that particular model, Spot, Narrow flood or Flood. All at massive 1800 Lumens compared to the FIETs 750.

Lower output PAR38s are here: https://www.tcpi.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/Designer-Elite-Non-Dimmable-PAR.pdf

Spec sheets are the best way to find details on the TCP product line. I bought mine through an electrical supplied in the SE, they ordered them in for me.

My dad and I are retrofitting a whole shop tomorrow. The best way to do it is to replace the whole assembly. You can use the LED tube but you need to ditch the ballast and replace it with a computer controller.

For example - at electrician rates it costs $35 to remove and replace and $40 for parts to change the fluorescent fixture to an LED fixture.

It boils down to preference. To me beam angle, CRI and lumens need to be considered as well.

People will go as high as 5,000k in offices, bathrooms and the kitchen. Bedrooms, media rooms, etc 2,700 - 3,000k.

I hate none uniform light so I have 4,000k through the house. I find brown/earthy colours work better at 3,000k and grey/white/blue at 4,000k. 4,000k is very close to a neutral/natural white colour.

50+ par 30 short neck leds at $15 a light because I’m picky about colour, cri, lumens and beam spread.

5000K is the tits for the pantry, closets, tiny main bathroom and garage. The softer ones, elsewhere.

Assuming you need PAR30 bulbs in short neck which a lot of houses use.

This is the best deal on a dimmable philips "warm effect" I've found. https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07C3Y4GX9/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_unExCbJ7BF7HC

To update the thread - I ended up using about two dozen Lithonia WF4 (wafer style retrofit LED lights) and am really pleased with the product. Quality, ease of installation and CRI/light colour are all top notch. At $16 a light I am impressed at the quality. I sourced them locally from Gescan. I'd recommend buying about 5-10% extra as spare units to ensure you have identical replacements in the inevitable case of failure.

What's the consensus on "best" potlight in 2019? I've got to install about 16-20 in my basement, which is unfinished.

Am I better off going retrofit/slimline style? Seems like it would be easier than having to measure and pre-cut my drywall before hanging it on the ceiling.

I went with a ton of these in my basement, very happy with them, https://www.lotusledlights.com

Will be adding another 48" LED fixture in my garage this weekend and move some other fixtures around, don't think I'll need to add any more lighting in there.

On a side note, just over 80% of our fixtures/bulbs are now LED, the remaining non-LED ones probably won't be changed out for a long time as they are used so infrequently. 8 of the remaining bulbs are in the basement TV room and are incandescent, 2 are fluorescent and are in an under stairs storage area , the incandescent will go first.

Home Depot double row 4ft and 8ft LED strip fixtures. Very bright, good 4000k colour but not advertised by them. Tuscany has them and I’ve found some in Airdrie before.

There were plenty of daylights when I took the pictures but you get the idea.

Anyone have suggestions for LED replacements for these "vintage edison" type bulbs? Have clear glass fixtures in my kitchen, and was using 65W incandescent bulbs, but these fixtures are on a lot of hours, so maybe some efficiency would make sense. One burnt out today, so I need to do something. Hopefully the light quality isn't horrific.
Current style: 91214
In these fixtures:

I actually have a different set of fixtures for that location, more like these, but waaaay back when I tried to sell this place, my realtor said they looked bad, and he's a fashionable dude. I actually liked them:
91216

I could use pretty much anything in those, hmmmmm.......

Phillips makes some vintage style LED’s. They look great on, but quite stupid when off.

I gradually replaced all the bulbs in my house with dimmable Edison LEDs. I just got them from Amazon, 6 pack for about 35bucks, 2700-3000K colours. The brands on Amazon are not very consistent so I tried to order enough for each area at least so I don't have mix and match. So far so good, haven't had to replace them yet. The oldest ones have been for a couple years at least.

Life advice: Throw those old fixtures in the garbage, that's where they would look the best.

Also, just replace with normal incandescent trendy bulbs. An extra $5 per month in electricity for the aesthetically pleasing bulbs is worth it.

How often do you find yourself looking at light bulbs in your house?Only in these clear glass hanging fixtures that are a visual centerpiece of my kitchen. So that's 2 bulbs out of like 100 in the house. However, I think killer is wrong, these look "normal" when they are off, and anyway, they aren't ever off if we are using that room. Those lights run more hours than any in my house.

Have a bunch of these, and I'm really happy with them. The four "leaves" fold upwards, so send the light outwards, and have a centre section that send light downwards. Have been installing at my moms, my brothers, and frankly everywhere.

I have a similar but tri led setup - it essentially saved me from spending 1000$ on a LED garage lighting system. The output is phenom. Great for workspace where you need proper lighting and working with your hands (too much blue light for reading though).

I agree. It will be saving me a ton of money as well not having to retrofit a garage.
