The Evolution of the Light Bulb

The Evolution of the Light Bulb

 

As incandescent light bulbs are banned and fluorescent light bulbs are poisonous, LED lights are the way forward.

However, prices vary greatly.

 

What to watch out for when buying LED lights:

 

Fitting:

Check first if you need a Bayonet or Edison screw base.

 

Lumens:

Lumens are the amount of light emitted per second. The more lumens, the brighter the light.

If you’re used to watts for determining the brightness of the light, consult a conversion calculator.

 

Lifetime:

The better the quality of the LED, the longer the lifespan. But also, the higher the cost.

 

Dimmable:

Dimmable LEDs cost about 40% more than non-dimmable LEDs of similar wattage. Alternatively the switch can be replaced.

 

Light colour

LED light bulbs are mainly available in ‘warm / soft white’ or ‘cool / bright white’, meaning you can choose between comfy accent and daylight task lighting.
