Light Bulb Buying Guide

Lighting a room can be a challenging aspect of decoration and design. The light bulb market has gone through enormous changes since traditional incandescent bulbs were removed from the market and replaced with energy-saving bulbs. LED is today's most energy-efficient and rapidly-evolving lighting technologies. Quality LED light bulbs last significantly longer, are more reliable, and offer form-factor and output comparable to any of the older technology based light bulbs.

Factors to Consider before Buying Light Bulb

Light Bulb Shape and Base

Light bulbs come in many shapes. The most common is the “teardrop” shape of the common light bulb. Lesser common but more aesthetically pleasing shapes include “bullet”, “candle” (commonly used in chandeliers), and “globular” (commonly used in vanity). Light shapes are denoted with a letter-number combination. The first letter indicates the bulb's shape (A represents the “teardrop” series”); the number is the size of the bulb's base/screw size.

Color Temperature

The color temperature of a light bulb describes how the light appears. Color temperature ranges from 2700K – 6000K. 2700-2800K is the yellow light of a conventional incandescent bulb, whereas 5000K-6000K is white. In general, lower numbers are yellow and higher numbers are white.

Watts and Lumens

Watts measure the amount of energy required to light the bulb, whereas lumens measure the amount of light produced. The more lumens produced by a light bulb, the brighter the light.

Conclusion

Even before the arrival of all the newer technologies, choosing the “correct” light bulb was never easy. The arrival of LED bulbs, Smart bulbs, and new fancy shaped bulbs has made things even more complicated. Given the current price points and the durability of LED lights, you are unlikely to regret your decision to upgrade. We hope the above buying guide helps you with your decision making.
