The basics behind LED vs Halogen

As you can tell by the image led lightning has come a long way and is today the recommended lightning for each and every home across the globe. Halogen are pretty much a thing of the past and are very inefficient compared to the led bulb that is not only much more efficient but also more environmental friendly since it does not release any carbon oxide and does not contain any quicksilver. The led bulbs are a bit more expensive and tend to scare away most consumers that are not fully aware of its benefits.

When the first led bulbs came out they emitted a light that were closer to the color blue then white or yellow cast by traditional bulbs. Since then the led companies has gone a long way and are today offering a wide range of different color temperatures from warm white to daylight.

Kelvin temperatures

2700K: These bulbs will generate a warm glow that’s good for bedroom, as well as table and floor lamps etc.

3000K: These bulbs will generate a bright white neutral glow.

5000K: These bulbs are also known as daylight. Their light output will be higher then both 2700K and 3000K and are typically towards the bluer part of the lightning spectrum.

LED versus Halogen wattage

Its important to note that led lightning is around 6-8 times stronger then halogen light which means that a 60-80W halogen bulb could easily be replaced by a 10W led light. Make sure you use this ratio the next time your in a store shopping for new lights.
