How to select led light bulbs
An led lamp is a light emitting diode which can save you energy and money.
Led lamps have an average life expectancy 15000 hours!
When buying an led lamp you need to look at these specifications.
Color temperature (white lamps) a low number in kelvin means warm light, just like an candle.
Numbers above 5000 kelvin mean cold white, just like the light in an hospital.
Lumens, the higher the number the brighter the bulb
- 450 lumens equals a 40 watt bulb
- 1100 lumens equals a 75 watt bulb
- 1600 lumens equals a 100 watt bulb
If you buy colored led bulb then the cri index is important. The cri index is a rating from 1 to 100.
