How to Choose LED Light Bulbs for Home

If you issue a new LED bulbs, and you’re not sure how to choose, with us you need not worry. Below you can read how to select the right LED bulb that data are essential for selection.

For each bulb See technical specification data to help you choose the right bulb just for your specific purpose. Just click on the image or name of the bulb, roll up below and on the right to check the following parameters:

Thread / socket

This figure is very important, it comes to coincide with your luminaire. E27 is a classic great thread, E14 is a classic small thread called. Minonky, GU10 socket is to highlight, G9 socket is used in newer fixtures, MR16 and G4 are mostly slot adapted to 12V voltage and 100w. If a threaded socket or are unsure, just look at the existing bulb you want to replace, there will most likely be written.

In our online store you can find led bulbs neatly ordered according to the thread / socket.

Light color

Warm white – yellowish color of light, which is close to normal light bulbs – use mostly in homes. Lately there is a tendency for these LED light to use a little whiter than downright yellow light as conventional bulbs. The point is that too much yellow color is not good for the eyes.

Neutral white – the color of light, which is close to natural daylight.

Cool white – the color of light that is coming to light bulbs – use mostly in offices and commercial spaces. In this light, the less eyestrain than with a warm color. It is therefore appropriate to be used in rooms where long working with computers.

The color of light is measured in kelvins, the lower the number, the warmer the higher the number, the colder.

Type diodes

This information is not essential selection led bulbs, indicates the type of diode with SMD numbers mean dimension diodes used in tenths of a millimeter, and the performance of individual diodes.

Number of LEDs

Indicates the number of LEDs in the LED bulb. But be careful, simple math, the more diodes, the more light, do not apply. 27 SMD diodes measuring 5050 may turn Vid than 80 SMD LEDs in size 3528. And in some cases 60 SMD 3528 light more than 80 SMD 3528, if the 60 high-brightness (highbrightness) while those 80 standard. Not to mention the type of diode 6 power LEDs will probably be turned on for more than 30 SMD 5050. So, no matter the number of diodes, a crucial indicator of intensity of the LED lamp is a luminous flux value (below) that is converted to equivalent conventional bulb (even lower ).

power

Important information, be sure to check that – most LED bulbs are designed for 220V, but also led bulbs designed for 12V!

Performance

Indicates consumption LED bulbs in Watts. Consumption ice bulb is generally about 80% or more lower than the consumption incandescent. A simple estimate of the more watts, the more lights do not pay. It is still possible to find a half year old ice bulb with 5W power consumption, which shines less than a new 4W. LED technology is evolving rapidly, the development goes ahead, especially in the area of increasing luminosity.

Dimensions

LED bulbs dimensions pay attention to, such as some ice bodovek body is slightly longer than conventional halogen bodovek.

Service life

Significantly higher than conventional bulbs

Light scattering

This figure is quite important. Angles up to 120 degrees are relatively strongly directional, so if you buy, for example, led spotlight with a scattering of 45 °, will shine a spotlight on a certain place, it will therefore suitable for illumination of a particular subject, but disperse the light throughout the room. Bodovka with angle shine 120 ° will be ideal in a lamp or ceiling, but certainly not to the chandelier in which the bulbs are screwed up because you could enlighten the ceiling while just under a chandelier will be dark. On the other hand, if you put ice lamp light scattering to 270 ° lamps, a larger part of the light emitted by the bulb will light up screens, and only a smaller part will be directed out of the lamp.
