Frequently Asked Questions
Fully dimmable means that a bulb is fully compatible with all dimmer types. We test our bulbs’ compatibility with 40 of the most common dimmers you’ll find out on the market in our headquarters, and we only mark it with our seal of approval until each bulb has gone through our exhaustive quality control testing.
Yes, all Kibün bulbs use LED technology, which has a much higher efficacy than traditional incandescent bulbs. There’s much lower energy consumption in LED bulbs for the same light output as their traditional incandescent counterparts.
Our Kibün bulbs will last between 10,000-25,000 hours depending on the type of bulb. A standard incandescent bulb will last around 2,000 hours on average. If you use each bulb for an average of three hours a day, they’ll last between 9.1-22.8 years.
The California Energy Commission has two sets of energy efficiency standards that impact lighting. Title 24 covers energy efficiency standards for all buildings (both in new construction and existing structures) while Title 20 sets minimum appliance efficiency standards. What that means for you is that the state requires all light bulbs sold in California to meet the minimum standards to avoid wasteful energy consumption.

Kibün is a Korean word used to describe one’s feeling and mood. “Kibün” is more than happy or sad, it defines a person’s spirit and state of mind. Light has a critical impact on our mood and state of mind (there’s a reason why we tend to be happier on a sunny day), and the right light in your space can round out your spirit and state of mind in your space. We’re excited to be in your corner and help you shape your kibün through lighting that works for you in every way.

The Kibün name is a nod to our heritage rooted in our parent company, Bulbrite. For over 50 years, it has played a pivotal role in the lighting industry. From our beginnings of founder Andrew Choi walking down the Bowery in New York City to lighting stores with bulbs and bagels in hand to thousands of points of sale across our industry, we’ve always believed that light is so essential, so fundamental because it impacts every moment of our lives.
