Technical elements to consider
Power and colour of the light
One of the key elements that will guide your decision is obviously the amount of light that will be provided by the fixture, as well as its materials and construction. At the time of incandescent bulbs, everything was simple: Review the wattage and light output and make your decision based on that. However, now incandescent bulbs are prohibited because they waste a lot of energy. Meanwhile, technological advances in LED lamps in recent years have led to the adoption of a new standard: the lumen. To get an idea of this relationship, an incandescent 60W bulb provides about 700 lumens, a 40W, 400 lumens. Today, the ratio in lumens and watts depends on the technology used; low-energy bulbs, halogens, or LEDs all have different outputs. There are also energy labels to help you choose the most economical alternative. At ' . $storeName . ', you can discover all of the possible light bulb options, but in most cases opt for LED lighting to ensure a minimum Class A fixture.
You also have probably noticed varying shades of colour for different light bulbs. These colours generally range from a very warm and yellow appearance, to some very cold, white-bluish lights, like in some car headlights for example. These colour values are measured in Kelvin. The higher the value, the colder the light will look. The conventional warm-white that is found in the majority of fixtures for the general public has a value around 2,700 Kelvin. From 6,000 Kelvin and upwards are the cool whites, which are often used in office and commercial lighting, while between 6,000 and 3,500 Kelvin is the neutral white light range. A candle with a value of approximately 1,000 Kelvin is an example of warm light.
