Which light bulb technology is right for me?

Should I make the switch to LED?

Many people are making the switch from using traditional halogen light bulbs to the more modern LED light bulbs.

Advantages of LED light bulbs:

  • Energy efficient ‐ LED light bulbs are a lot more efficient than Halogen bulbs, meaning you get more for your money and conserve more energy.
  • Longer life ‐ LED light bulbs last longer, with a life of up to 40,000 hours!
  • Smaller carbon footprint - LED light bulbs use less energy whilst emitting the same light, making them the eco-friendly option.
Advantages of Halogen Light Bulbs:

  • Much brighter ‐ halogen light bulbs give off a bright white light, making them perfect for an area that needs to be well lit.
  • Energy efficient ‐ Whilst LED light bulbs may be more energy efficient, halogen light bulbs are still more energy efficient in comparison to other incandescent light bulbs.

Watts & Lumens
What does Watt mean?

When changing a light bulb, the light fixture socket will tell you the maximum wattage you should use. If you exceed this, there is a definite danger of it overheating and becoming a safety hazard. Contrary to what you might believe, wattage is no longer a truly reliable measure of how bright a bulb is.

How to choose the right brightness of light bulb?

Brightness is measured in Lumens ‐ the higher the lumens, the brighter the light. Firstly, you should decide whether you prefer bright light or dim light. You may want a lower brightness for your bedside lamp but a brighter light for a large sized living space.
