The use of LED bulbs has risen in India over the last few years. This is due to their low energy consumption, long life and economical prices. The main problem that people face when buying these bulbs is not knowing which one would be best for them. With so many options available on the market, it can be hard to choose from all the different product features without getting confused by technical jargon. That’s why we’ve put together the best 5 best LED bulbs available in India – as well as some tips on how to make your purchase with confidence!
What are LED bulbs?
The LEDs are a type of bulb that uses light emitting diodes to emit illumination. The LED bulbs have been around for more than four decades now but people only started taking serious interest in them when they became affordable and efficient enough to replace incandescent lights which were the dominant lighting solutions until then. They come in different types, shapes, sizes and wattages.
How do LED bulbs work?
LEDs create light in a different way than incandescent or fluorescent lights. They emit individual beams of light which are then diffused to cover the whole area, rather than using a filament-based approach where heating up wire filaments gives off light that is spread around by glass and metallic reflectors
What are some benefits of LED bulbs?
LEDs last about ten times as long as other types of lighting solutions like CFLs and they use little power in comparison with other traditional forms of illumination. The efficiency means you can save on your electricity bill while also reducing carbon footprint – not just for yourself but for people who live near you too!
Why should you switch to LEDs from CFLs and incandescent bulbs?
Unlike CFLs and incandescent bulbs, LEDs are more efficient, and so are better for the environment. They also provide a brighter light with little heat output that is easier on your eyes. LEDs use about 80% less energy than incandescent bulbs and last much longer too – there’s no need to buy replacement bulbs or frequent trips to replace them. Without much recycling or e-waste, LEDs also impact the environment less.
Incandescent bulbs are not only more expensive but can also emit high levels of UV rays that may be harmful to your skin and eyes in the long run. LEDs don’t have this problem, and they’re even available in soft light or warm tone colours to suit every mood! CFLs produce significant amounts of heat as well as a buzzing sound, which is distracting for some people – especially when using CFLs at night time.
How much money can you save with LED bulbs?
The cost savings with LEDs are significant. An incandescent bulb will use 100 watts while a LED bulb uses only 12-14 watt, meaning that one can save up to 80% in energy costs with LEDs over time! If there are other people living at your home or if you’re running an office out of your house, this could add up very quickly.
Moreover, the longer life span of LEDs means even better savings for you. LEDs also last much longer than CFLs or incandescent bulbs; after 50,000 hours (about 17 years!) they still work as well as the first day they were turned on. This is perfect if you need lights all around your property and want them to be durable too!
How to choose the right LED bulb for your needs?
There’s an important question you should ask yourself before making this decision: what color temperature do I want? Warm LEDs give off more yellowish white light while cool lights have a bluish tint that can be used in spaces where natural daylighting is minimal. You may choose one based on personal preference but it will depend greatly on how you plan to use it as well.
The LED bulbs also come with B22 and E27 bases. Pick the correct base to fit properly in your home. While there are adapters to fix the problem, it isn’t an ideal solution. As these aren’t RGB bulbs, pick between the warm white or cool white light colours.
How do I choose LED wattage?
The bulb with more watts can lit brightly. However, we can’t compare a 60W incandescent bulb with 60W LED bulb. The LEDs can generate more light per watt than incandescent bulbs. To compare LED and incandescent bulbs, we need to know the lumens.
Lumen is a measure of light output in all directions from a source (which will be an LED bulb). We can use that as our base unit before comparing watts. A 60W equivalent LED would have 123 lumen while an incandescent has just 18-22 lumens.
We hope you’ve found the perfect LED bulb for your needs. Also have a look at our other posts about smart LED bulbs and LED tube lights to see if something else might work better. Let us know if you need any help choosing or getting more information about one of these products! Have a great day!
