How to choose LED Lights

Most light bulbs that you may have noticed now are LED (Light Emitting Diode) bulbs. 

LED bulbs can last several years, more than the older CFL bulbs.

Here’s what you need to know before you choose which LED lights to purchase;

 

  • Brightness

When choosing LED lights, look for the number of Lumens as oppose to the watts.

Light appearance refers to the color temprature, measured in kelvin (K)

For warm light similar to the older incandescent bulb choose 3000k
