Let There Be Light

First, 40w bulbs in a 25w max socket is hard on the phenolic sockets and the wires.

Second, the headboard fixture CAME with 40w bulbs installed.

The fixture on the left had died, the center one flickered.


All better!

Two out of three sockets replaced with porcelain, third on order.

40w incandescent replaced with 7.5w (60w equivalent) LED.  The output is much higher, I think since the 40w GE Reveal brand are 240 lumen and the Ecosmart are rated at 500 lumen.

I've already noticed the reduced heat output.


Dimmable too!
