    • What are the Recommended Lighting Levels for Residential and Office Spaces? level lightning

      Lighting for an area in the work place or home should be sufficient so that a person can move around safely, use the facilities and be able to work while not having any sides effects such as straining eyes. Getting the right light for an area can be difficult as there aren’t always clear guidelines on recommended light levels. Additionally, it can be difficult to measure and understand how much light is needed. Light intensity is measured in Lux, this can be used as a guide to how much light in lumens is needed to adequately light an office space or residential space. One lux is equal to one lumen per square meter.

  3. Wattage and Brightness

    Wattage and Brightness

    Wattage is often confused with brightness. With traditional lightbulbs, we relied on wattage to indicate brightness. However, with LEDs, wattage does not measure brightness, but it does measure power consumption. LED bulbs emit the same amount of light as traditional light bulbs but at a lower wattage. When selecting LED bulbs, look at light output, which is measured in lumens – it’s indicated on the packaging. For your convenience, the equivalent wattage of traditional bulbs is also shown, because many consumers are still familiar with this – but you need to disregard it in terms of the brightness of the product. As a guideline, a 35W conventional will have an output of 280-300lm and a 50W will be 380-400lm.

    Please see chart below for a basic guide fo choosing the right LED bulb to replace your existing bulb type.

    Colour Temperature

    The first LED bulbs on the market produced a very blue daylight; many people think that’s still the case. However, this is no longer blue as LED can range in colour temperature. Kelvins are used to measure light colour. Scientific tests have proven the colour of light can impact upon energy levels and productivity. For example, to relax at home you would choose a warm light in rooms such as your bedroom. A warm white light, however, may not work in your kitchen or bathroom, as these rooms usually have white fittings, such as sinks or cabinets, which would look give it a yellow tint in warm light.

    We would recommend a white (3,000K) or cool white (4,000K) light for those areas. LED technology has evolved significantly within the last decade. Today, most LED lights are available in a variety of white colours – everything from very warm white (2,000K) through to daylight (6,500K). You can choose an LED light that shi
