Before switching to green, energy-efficient lighting started to gain traction, selecting a light bulbs was fairly simple. If you were not getting enough light from your 40-watt or 60-watt bulb, the solution was simple, just go up to a higher-wattage bulb. Voila more light. It was really that simple!
Many consumers today incorrectly assume that all LED lights and bulbs are exactly the same. Most are entirely focused on the style or wattage of the product, while overlooking the major role color temperature provides. Unlike previous incandescent bulbs and fixtures, LED versions offer a wide range of color temperatures. Selecting the correct color temperature will determine the mood of a living space, or even affect the productivity of a work space.
In today's real estate market, selling a home can sometimes prove to be quite difficult. Did you know by choosing to upgrade lighting fixtures to help sell your house actually does work? Aside from adding a new paint job, freshening up your landscaping or upgrading your bathrooms or kitchens, up-to-date lighting fixtures are extremely important to home buyers.
When shopping for LED lights and bulbs you will frequently see three key specifications mentioned, Lumens, Kelvins and Watts. So, it is very common for shoppers to become confused about the differences between these terms.
Just like food products have a "Nutrition Facts" label, you may have noticed light bulbs and fixtures now have a Lighting Facts label. The goal, is to provide consumers with a better understanding of what they are buying in an attempt to make shopping for lighting easier in an age of incandescent, CFL and LED lighting options.
