Choosing the right type of light for your home can be difficult to start because there are many varieties, shapes, sizes, and colors. However if you’re trying to determine if an LED light is right for your home, there are certain factors you need to consider. Here are some tips and advice on how to determine if LED lights are right for you and your home.
You will pay more up front for bulbs – When it comes to the money you’ll save on using LED lights in your home, the cost of bulbs will be pricey. Of course, saving money on them is great at first but you will pay more up front for a bulb than you would a standard light.
They’re measured differently – Standard light bulbs’ energy amount is measured by wattage, while LED bulbs are measured in lumens. Lumens are actually the correct measurement of how much light is being produced by the LED bulb, which is contrary to popular belief of wattage – which is actually the energy amount.
LED bulbs can only be used in certain fixtures – It’s important to recognize that even though LED lights are cooler in temperature as opposed to regular light bulbs, they still will produce heat. Since LED bulbs are more costly up front, do your research before purchasing them on where they will be going and if the bulb is properly ventilated.
