% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Because of the wide range of collection and energy efficiency, most of the people are now shifting to the LED lightings. But, when you are thinking to replace the older CFL bulbs with LEDs, should consider several facts.

Some people buy LEDs without knowing the essential facts. As a result, they become depressed about the lighting. On the other hand, people who know correctly how to select the right bulb are happy with their light fixture. Well, you don’t have to tense, here I am going to describe the essential facts that you must consider before ordering an LED bulb.

1. Purchase from Online

The first thing I can recommend for an LED bulb is, you should purchase it from online. Though different manufacturers sell their bulbs in the local shops, but online is more efficient. There are different platforms where you can buy led spots online. The advantage is, here you can know the customer feedback for the particular product. So, it will be easy for you to pick the right product.

2. Think About the Lumen

In the traditional bulbs, we need to consider the wattage if that bulb to identify how the lighting will be. But, there is a basic difference of those lights with LED. LED lights need to purchase based on their Lumen. Lumen is the unit of light efficiency. This indicates how much lighting you are going to achieve with the product. If the Lumen is high, it means, you will get a brighter light.

3. Color of the Light

When you search for LED bulbs, will find an extensive collection with a variety of colors. Yes, you will get almost every color for an LED bulb. But, when you are ordering, make sure that the color is suitable for your home or office. Especially, you should match the color with the interior design.

4. Purchase Non-dimmable LEDs

This is an important point when choosing an LED bulb. In traditional bulbs, when you dim the light, it reduces the current flow in the light. But LED bulbs are not the same. Here you can’t control the lighting by reducing the current flow. It can be damaged if you use a dimmer. So, it is recommended to purchase non-dimmable LEDs.

5. Price

Don’t be confused about an LED bulb because of the high price. This is a one-time cost. They sustain longer than the traditional lights. So, extra money is not a big issue.
