  • Things to know while choosing LED Bulbs

    1. Shop for lumens, not watts - Watt is not a measure of brightness of led.
    2. Select light colour you want - Choose from a range of colours (warmer yellow-white, colour of incandescent bulbs, whiter white or blueish white.)
    3. Choose the right bulb for dimmers - some bulbs fail to respond to a dimmer switch.
