Making the most of your LED Purchase
If you’re planning to shift to new, power-friendly bulbs such as LED lights, there are a few things to keep in mind to make the most of your purchase. Purchasing the right LED light can be tricky, especially since they don’t work the same way as common bulbs like incandescent.
Here are a few tips and things to remember when purchasing new LED lights.
Think Lumens, not Watts Compared to incandescent bulbs, LED light bulbs use a fraction of power to produce a certain brightness. This is why many consumers get very confused about buying an LED. This is why you should think of lumens when you buy them. Lumens are the unit of luminous flux, which isthe measure of the total amount of visible light being emitted by a light source. A common 100 watt incandescent can produce a 2600 lm. For a LED light, this is equivalent to an LED that uses 25 to 28 watts. Ask for a conversion chart to make your purchase easier.
Count how many you Need Count how many bulbs you’re planning to change before you run to the store and buy it. You can actually save a lot by buying in bulk so if you’re shifting to LEDs, make the most of your purchase. Some brands even sell them in packs of three or more, which cost less compared to buying them individually. You can also check online stores which offer discounts and specials on lighting products.
Where will you use them? Different spaces need different types of bulbs. If you’re getting bulbs for outdoor use, make sure you choose the type that’s outdoor friendly. The bulb’s tone can also make a big difference. Warm tones give the space a more relaxing look while cool tones make the space look brighter, which is great if spaces where you’ll be working and reading.
