How to choose the right light
A guide to changing a light bulb. Are you joking?
Actually, no. We want to spread the good news about LED bulbs – how they can save your energy bills and light your home beautifully. And we’d like to help you to choose the right bulbs for a better, brighter life at home.
1) How much light do you want?
Lumens measure light ouput and watts measure energy consumption. When comparing what 6,3W feels like in terms of light output with the old incandescent bulbs, it feels like 40W. Nowadays, we start with lumen (lm) - the light output. Our 400 lm bulbs only use 6,3W of energy. That is why we say that a 6,3W LED bulb feels like a 40W incandescent bulb. We have light sources in 90 lm, 200 lm, 400 lm, 600 lm and 1000 lm.

3) Want a warmer or a cooler light?
LED bulbs towards the red end of the spectrum provide a warm light that’s ideal for relaxing. Cooler light is ideal for working or cooking, for example.

4) Do you need clear or opal bulbs?
Clear bulbs are ideal in lamps and shades that are designed to create patterns on the wall. Use opal coloured bulbs when you want an even spread of light.
5) Do you have dimmer switches?
Most of LEDARE bulbs are dimmable – just look for the symbol on the packaging, or the product description on the product information page online.

6) Which shape do you need?
The various shapes and sizes suit different lamps and activities. Chandelier-shaped bulbs spread the light like a candle and are ideal for decorative lamps. These bulbs dissipate heat upwards, whereas globe-shaped bulbs dissipate heat and light horizontally. Choose a reflector bulb to get directed light, such as for reading. A-shaped bulbs have the familiar look of the old incandescent bulbs.
