Which LED bulb gives more brightness?
Lumens equal brightness
More lumens per watt equals to more brightness. The table below would help you choose the right LED bulb. For example, your traditional 60W bulb is equivalent to a 5W LED bulb. Similarly, your CFL ranging from 18W – 23W is equivalent to a 10W LED bulb.
How do I choose the brightest LED light bulb?
How to Pick the Right Brightness Level for your LED Bulb
- Replacing a 40W bulb: look for at least 450 lumens.
- Replacing a 60W bulb: look for at least 800 lumens.
- Replacing a 75W bulb: look for at least 1,100 lumens.
- Replacing a 100W bulb: look for at least 1,600 lumens.
How bright is a 15W LED light?
LED light bulbs for general use around the home will typically have a wattage between 5W-15W, and will emit between 300-500 lumens.
What is 18W LED equivalent to?
Lumen & Wattage Comparison
|Lumens (Brightness)||LED Watts (Viribright)||CFL Watts|
|650 – 850||7 – 10W||13 – 18W|
|1000 – 1400||12 – 13W||18 – 22W|
|1450-1700+||14 – 20W||23 – 30W|
|2700+||25 – 28W||30 – 55W|
How do I know which LED bulb to buy?
2. Determine much light you need
- If you used to buy 100 watt bulbs, look for a bulb with 1600 lumens.
- If you used to buy 75 watt bulbs, look for a bulb with 1100 lumens.
- If you used to buy 60 watt bulbs, look for a bulb with 800 lumens.
- If you used to buy 40 watt bulbs, look for a bulb with 450 lumens.
How do I choose LED lumens?
To determine the needed lumens, you will need to multiply your room square footage by your room foot-candle requirement. For example, a 100 square foot living room, which needs 10-20 foot-candles, will need 1,000-2,000 lumens. A 100 square foot dining room, which needs 30-40 foot-candles, will need 3,000-4,000 lumens.
Do I want daylight or soft white?
What is this? Paint color: If you want to enhance warm tones, such as earth tones or neutrals, go for soft white lighting. If you have cooler paint colors like blues and greens, a daylight bulb will go hand in hand with making colors pop in a room.
Which bulbs are brighter?
Lumens and Watts
More lumens equal brighter light; fewer lumens equal dimmer light. Standard 100-watt bulbs produce about 1600 lumens. Watts: The amount of energy a light bulb uses. The lower the light bulb wattage, the lower the electric bill.
