How to Buy LED Light Fixtures for Your Home
There's a lot of talk surrounding LED these days, but one thing is for certain: it's smart, sensible and stylish to choose LED light fixtures for your home. A leading trade group, the American Lighting Association, points to their reliability, energy efficiency, and environmental friendliness in comparison to incandescent lighting. And with this new technology, a whole new range of designs is available.
When purchasing LED lighting fixtures, there are three key criteria you'll want to consider:
- Color Temperature: This is the measurement of the color of the light. Consumers who want to replicate the "warm" look of incandescent bulbs will want to buy LEDs in the 2700-3000K range, while higher numbers provide a "cooler" light. For LED and color temperature explained in depth, visit our Advice & Tips.
- Watts: The measurement of electricity needed to power the light, LED wattage can be as little as 1/5 that of an incandescent bulb. That adds up to a lot of savings on your next electrical bill!
- Lumens: This is the output or brightness of the LED array. Consumers will note that for the watts used, LED lighting provides more lumens than incandescent, halogen or CFL bulbs.
