How to choose an energy saving lamp

Posted By: admin on Feb 27, 2013 in Knowledge base

Energy saving lamps show in many sizes and shapes.See to it that ask the seller for recommendations and consider the following when purchasing energy saving lamps:

A. Choose the shape.
Energy saving lamps are available in different shapes to fit a range of lights and lighting fixtures. There are spiral shape,U shape,bulb shape etc.For more please refer:

B. Choose your favorite light quality.
Energy saving bulbs have a Kelvin or ‘K’ number printed on the packaging. Energy saving lamps with K numbers between 2700-3000 emit a soft bright light like conventional bulbs. Energy saving bulbs with K numbers between 3500-6000 deliver a bright light. As you go up the K number scale the light gets bluish and closer to daylight.
For example:
Approx. 5000K = Cool White (white/blue, bright light)
Approx. 2700K = Warm White (looks just like incandescent)

C. Match lumens to the incandescent being replaced.
Lumens indicate the amount of light being created. (Watts is a measure of energy use, not light strength.) Lumen output is printed on the light package or on the light product page if buying lamps online.
