- Select categories
There are many types of bulbs, such as tungsten bulbs, tungsten halogen bulbs, metal halogens, LED bulbs, xenon bulbs, energy-saving lamps, etc., most home decoration will use LED bulbs, fluorescent lamps, halogen lamps, energy-saving lamps These bulbs. LED bulb is a solid-state semiconductor device that can convert electrical energy into visible light. It is 1 kind of energy-saving lamp and is mostly used for corridor or bedroom lighting.
- Select brightness
Brightness is the rate of light energy emitted by the light source or the flow rate of light. Lumens is a unit of measurement to measure the light output rate. The light output released by an LED bulb 400 lumens is equivalent to a 35-watt incandescent bulb, but its energy consumption is only 6.3 watts. Generally speaking, if it is an led bulb, it is probably a 1-3-watt bulb for a flat space, and consumers can choose according to actual needs.
- Power consumption
The energy consumption of energy-saving lamps is much lower than that of traditional incandescent bulbs, so you can choose according to the light output (lumens) instead of the power consumption (watts). Watts are the unit of measurement to measure power consumption.
- Color temperature
In our eyes, the light emitted by most light sources is generally called white light. In fact, the white light emitted by different light sources that look to the naked eye will show different colors due to the color temperature. The bluer the light color, the higher the color temperature, and the redder the light color, the lower the color temperature. Bulbs with more red spectrum have more mild light and are ideal for relaxing or general lighting, while cool-tone lights are suitable for work or for concentrating light.
