LED lamps provide an ideal replacement for the older compact fluorescent and incandescent lighting lamps.
Not only do LED lamps provide better efficiency levels, but they also provide a longer life.
However it is necessary to be able to equate the light output of the different forms of light. A watts to lumens chart is very useful. Comparing the different light outputs for a given power level enables the most suitable light.
|Light Output (Lumens)||Typical Incandescent Power||Typical CFL Power||Typical LED Power|
|450||40||9 - 13||4 - 5|
|800||60||13 - 15||6 - 8|
|1100||75||18 - 25||9 - 13|
|1600||100||23 - 30||16 - 20|
|2600||150||30 -35||25 - 28|
