Fixtures - LED Bulbs (lamps)


Replacing your existing incandescent or halogen bulbs with durable LED bulbs offers numerous benefits. You enjoy an even better light performance and benefit from very low energy consumption. LEDs are available in all hues of white light. Warm white to daylight. When purchasing fixtures for a new install, or replacing old ones, I recommend buying LED replacements from the beginning. We just throw the halogens away.
For a professional job, you use an appropriate fixture and bulb of adequate brightness, with a beam angle that best fits the result you are looking for. All the different fixtures that come with halogen bulbs, can be upgraded with LED bulbs. The bottom line is; 7 - 7 watt LED bulbs = 49 watts. 7 - 50 watt halogens = 350 watts. A 7 watt LED can out perform a 50 watt halogen. And the LEDs put out better light.


Color temperature in lighting describes how the color of the light appears from a lamp, measured in kelvins (K).
Imagine a scale from 1000K (very red) to 10,000K (very blue) (actual scale is wider). The higher up the scale you go, the closer the light resembles blue daylight.
Color temperature does not describe the actual temperature of the lamp itself but the color it produces. The higher the color temperature the “cooler” a lamp will look.
A light bulb’s (lamp’s) color temperature lets us know what the look and feel of the light produced will be.
