Brighten Up Your Workplace with Anew Lighting From TCP

Mar 8, 2024

Now is a great time to refresh your company’s lighting with TCP Lighting. This year brings even more motivation than in past years, as incandescent bulbs have been banned from manufacture by the federal government. Effective August of last year, this ban is focused on upping energy efficiency and lowering utility costs for homeowners and businesses.

What it means for you as a contractor or building manager is this: You need to find incandescent bulb alternatives that fit your existing fixtures and emit clear, even illumination.

Enter Anew Lighting, the latest innovation from TCP. This cutting-edge light bulb duplicates the soft, warm, cozy light we all loved from incandescent bulbs – with the added energy efficiency of LED technology. Other LEDs couldn’t quite match that incandescent spectrum, but Anew brings the full spectrum of natural sunlight without blue light spikes.

Anew: The Incandescent Light Bulb Alternative

TCP has been an industry leader for over 30 years and saw the incandescent bulb ban coming long before the legislation passed. Our engineers worked hard to make sure we had an incandescent light bulb replacement ready to go. This way business owners and contractors can comply with the new law as quickly and easily as possible.

Our Anew LED light bulbs are an incandescent light bulb alternative. They deliver energy efficiency and the full spectrum of daylight. They do this while avoiding the sometimes stress-inducing blue light spikes other LEDs emit. All that brilliance is housed in the familiar A19 shape with an E26 base, similar to incandescent light bulbs. This allows for easy retrofitting and updating.

Benefits of TCP Anew Lighting

The benefits of switching to LED lighting include saving money on your utility bills. However, this new line of bulbs from TCP brings even more value to your business. These TCP light bulbs deliver:


Anew light bulbs use a fraction of the energy used by incandescent bulbs to produce the same light output, making them easier on our planet’s natural resources. This energy efficiency is just one of the ways TCP continues to be green in our products and business practices.

Truer Colors

If your company relies on any kind of color-coding system to organize your day-to-day operations, you understand the importance of high-CRI light bulbs. Our Anew line features a Color Rendering Index of 98 out of a possible score of 100. This equals that of unclouded daylight. That means colors appear as true to themselves as possible, thus making color differentiation easier and clearer for your team.

Long Lifespan

One of the most useful aspects of Anew bulbs is their incredibly long lifespan. Previously, old-fashioned bulbs needed to be replaced nearly every month because they only had a lifespan of about 1,000 hours. Depending on your company’s day-to-day usage, these LED bulbs are rated to emit clear, even illumination for up to 10,000 hours.

Federal Compliance

The legislation that passed last August requires all general service light bulbs to emit a minimum of 45 lumens (aka units of brightness) per watt of energy consumed. Incandescents couldn’t even come close to that benchmark. TCP Anew light bulbs fall well within the government’s guidelines by delivering an average of 75 to 100 lumens per watt – which makes them over 7.5 times more efficient at converting energy into light, as compared to incandescent bulbs.

Full Visible Light Spectrum Without Blue Light Spikes

Humans need exposure to the full spectrum of light to stay healthy. That includes blue light, which most of us get too much of due to our digital devices. Earlier LED bulbs produced a spike of blue light wavelengths, which are invisible to the naked eye but can cause health problems like headaches and disrupted sleep patterns for some people. Our engineers upped the health benefits of Anew Lighting by eliminating those blue light spikes but retaining the full spectrum of clear, vivid daylight.

Perfect Dimming

You may recall how some earlier versions of LED bulbs had a dimming problem where they’d flicker or hum when the brightness was turned down. However, the Anew line ushers in a bright new era of perfectly dimming LED light bulbs! They smoothly dim without flickering or humming annoyingly. This allows for perfectly customized illumination in every situation.

Less Heat

One of the main reasons for the banning of incandescent light bulbs was the amount of heat they put out, which made them a potential fire hazard. Plus, this heat output could put additional strain on HVAC systems to maintain a steady indoor temperature. The cutting-edge LED technology we’ve put into our Anew lighting keeps them cool and safe while delivering the same – or higher – illumination level as their predecessors. This means they can be utilized in closets and other small spaces with no worries, and they won’t cause the need to crank up the air conditioning.

How Incandescent Light Bulb Replacement Supports Your Team

The productivity of your team depends on a lot of factors. You might not think that switching to TCP light bulbs could impact day-to-day work in a meaningful way – but a poorly lit workplace can easily lend itself to accidents and errors. When you understand the psychology of productivity with lighting, you may begin to see how the high-CRI light of Anew bulbs can elevate your team’s efficiency, as well as their mental and physical health.

For example, team members working the night shift in call centers or other 24-hour businesses need as much light as possible. For the highest efficiency and benefits, this light should mimic daylight with the full spectrum of wavelengths. This light should also avoid spikes in blue light that can cause health problems. Choosing Anew as your incandescent light bulb replacement ensures that all your workers can see clearly, avoid accidents and stay healthy. That translates to fewer illness call-offs, higher production rates and a healthier bottom line.
