Lighting should match your needs. LED technology has expanded and improved to provide commercial contractors and consumers with energy efficient light bulbs that feature long lifetime hours, safety improvements, and more. There is no need to settle for preexisting lighting or keep paying high utility bills when you can save when you switch to LED lighting bulbs.
YOU MUST READ THIS BEFORE BUYING ANY EDISON VINTAGE LED BULB.
The most misleading information given on LED vintage bulbs is the wattage equivalent. Every web site out there which sells LED vintage bulbs and all the manufacturers making those bulbs have this piece of information listed on their bulbs. What they don’t tell you is whether it is equivalent to Vintage Edison Incandescent bulb or a standard incandescent bulb. There is a big difference between the two.
CHOOSING THE CORRECT COLOR TEMPERATURE FOR YOUR LED BULBS.
Not too long ago, before LED bulbs took over we had very little choice when it came to our light bulb color temperature. It is the color of the light measured on a temperature scale referred to as Kelvin (K). A lower number means the light will appear more yellow, while the higher the number means the light will appear whiter or bluer. The color of the incandescent bulbs we were used to is around 2700K. Any number higher than this will be a whiter color and lower will be more yellow.
CRI and color temperature can make or break a space. Understanding how color and light quality affect your room or create the necessary ambiance can help you to define your light requirements, whether designing a room atmosphere or office workspace lighting.
Here are some quick things to consider about quality color rendering as you develop your ideal lighting plan.
Color choice is a powerful decision. When you examine the science of color and explore Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) you can better determine how to choose light color for each space. Color can be used to evoke certain moods, boost your work with task lighting and define a space.
Color theory involves a lot of components we could not cover in the length of one blog. Instead, we will examine warm vs. cool light to define those descriptions, explain Correlated Color Temperature (CCT), and also what type of moods you can evoke when you choose cool or warm lights in your unique lighting applications.
