Example: If you had a traditional 60w bulb you could replace this with an 8w
LED, the brightness would be same but the energy used will be over 80% cheaper
to run. So because of technological advances you can’t compare bulbs by
wattage any more.
Wattage tells you how much energy the light is using, so a 100w is brighter
than a 60w but it also costs almost twice as much to run. LED’s that run
at 8w are as bright as a traditional 60w bulb. The lighting world is
currently switching to using Lumens to describe how bright a bulb is, this has
always been the correct measurement of brightness but most of us are not
familiar with it.
Here is a quick comparison chart
New LED’s are now coming through with a dimming function. The problem
has been that a traditional bulb such as a 60w has a lot more room to be
dimmed. A dimmer basically turns the voltage to make the light dimmer. If you think of a 60w bulb as a clocks face, as you turn the dimmer you are reducing the wattage 1 watt at a time from 60 down to 1. So the bulb is dimmed through a wide range.
LED dimming on the other hand has a much smaller wattage range just 8w before
it turns off. How ever there are now LED’s that will dim but you need to
make sure you get a compatible dimmer switch.
