Things to Consider Before Buying LED Lights

The internet is now one of the best places to buy low energy LED Lights. However, before you buy there are a few things worth considering. Despite what everyone says, buying these Lights requires some careful consideration. It isn't difficult, but at least you will avoid the hassle of having to return your LED bulbs if the event arises. By following some simple steps not only will you buy the best LED lights every time, you will also be spending less money on your electricity bills in no first thing to check when buying theshi-tech Llghts is the fitting. Check the fitting on your existing bulb. This will be in the form of a code. For example it might be GU10, MR16 or B22. LED lights have the same fittings as conventional halogen and incandescent bulbs, so by getting this right straight away you will know what you are looking for and what questions to ask when you need to. You can identify your fitting by either checking the bulb itself or using a fitting guide, which most websites now provide. Simply compare your fittings against the high resolution images.
Next you need to check wattage when you by LED lights. Find out what wattage your existing bulbs are, either by checking the original packaging or, if you no longer have the original packaging, by looking at the bulb itself. Light bulbs will usually have the wattage printed somewhere on their surface. Once you know the wattage of your existing bulbs compare these with the 'equivalent wattage' which can be found either in the product specification or on the product images. An equivalent wattage simply describes the wattage of the halogen or incandescent bulb the LED lights are designed to replace. For example a GU10 LED (48 Cluster) uses 2.5 watts, but its equivalent wattage is 30 watts. This means the bulbs is designed to replace a 30 watt halogen.
The final thing to check is the size of the bulbs. One of the biggest problems customers have is that they get home and find that their brand new LEDs don't fit inside their recessed ceiling fittings. This is because some GU10 LED Bulbs are made to slightly larger specifications to accommodate heat sinks and drivers. Before you buy make sure you measure the size of your fittings and compare these with the sizes quoted on the website in the product specifications area.
By following the aforementioned advice you shouldn't have any trouble finding exactly which bulbs you need and swapping them over.
