Things to know while choosing LED Bulbs

  1. Shop for lumens, not watts – Watt is not a measure of brightness of led.
  2. Select light colour you want – Choose from a range of colours (warmer yellow-white, colour of incandescent bulbs, whiter white or blueish white.)
  3. Choose the right bulb for dimmers – some bulbs fail to respond to a dimmer switch.
