Watts don’t tell you how bright a LED light will be

Lumens determine the brightness of a bulb, regardless of the type. The higher the lumens, the brighter the light

Led bulbs run on lesser wattage than cfl or incandescent light bulbs, making them more energy-efficient and long lasting

LEDs are mercury free unlike cfl bulbs

Lights equipped with reflectors will deliver increased directional light

Because of low power requirements of LED, the use of solar panels becomes more practical and less expensive to run

LEDs emits little to no heat, making it more efficient to run with air conditioning

LEDs are also ideal for use with portable generators for backup power during emergencies due to its low power consumption

Amber coloured LEDs do not attract flying insects as do ordinary white bulbs and ideal for use in outdoor areas such as patios and decks

– represents the quality of light and its faithfulness to render colors correctly, that is to enable us to perceive colors as we know them. The ideal CRI is 100, and some incandescent bulbs approach this level. LEDs and CFLs use different design components in trying to equal the CRI of incandescent bulbs. LED bulbs CRI ratings range from 70 to 95, and the best CFLs have ratings in the mid 80s.


– the flow of light measured in lumens. Much of an incandescent light is wasted because it’s emitted in every direction. LED on the other hand puts out directional light, sending all of the light exactly where it’s needed.


– a unit of measurement on the color temperature of the light. It defines the amount of pure white, yellow, red and blue in a light. It is measured in degrees Kelvin, denoted by a ‘K’ behind a number, e.g. 3000K


– a unit of standard measurement used to describe the amount of light contained in an area as perceived by the human eye. The more lumens, the brighter the light.

Colour Temperature/Kelvin Chart

1900kCandle light or sunlight at sunrise or sunset
2000k-2700kOften used as ascent lighting to blend in with fluorescent 2700k applications
3000k-3200kUsed as a primary light source for retail applications
3700kCoasted lamps, where a “softer” metal halide light source is desired
4000kGeneral lighting; factories; parking lots, warehouse
5000k-5500kDaylight lamps: horticulture, aquariums, hight color definition
5600kNominal sunlight (mid day during summer)
6000kStart to get a blue tint like some automotive headlights
