Choosing the light bulb with the right fitting

Different bulbs have different bubs and to avoid making the mistakes of getting the incompatible bulbs is to know which fitting your bulb has. If you’re not sure, it’s better to bring the old light bulb to the shop so you’ll be able to compare it or have someone help in getting the same light bulb. However, if you’re still not able to do any of the stated tips above, you can search online for the different kind of fitting so you’ll know which one to get from the store.

Don’t be intimidated by LED lights

LED lights gained its popularity due to its cost- efficiency. However, most people skip this choice as it costs higher than the normal CFL (compact fluorescent lamp) lights. If you want to save more money in the long run, you could opt for LED lights as it only costs £1.71 in a year to operate. It uses 90% less of energy and can last up to 25 years.

Choose the right brightness and colour

This depends on where you’re going to put the light bulb. If it’s intended for your kitchen lights, it’s better to choose bulbs with higher lumens; the higher the lumens the brighter the light is.

Also, you can choose the color temperature of your bulbs which is measured with Kelvin, the higher the number, the ‘hotter’ the light is. For example, a midday sun measures 5,000K while a candlelight is merely 1,500K. You can choose how low or high these measurements to get the exact colour of your light bulbs.
