Ambient or general, lighting is the substance. It’s typically 75% of the room’s light. It provides an area with overall illumination – a comfortable level of brightness without glare. It assures you can walk into a space without bumping into furniture. For larger rooms, ambient lighting may require a few ceiling fixtures.
LEDs are the latest and most exciting technological advancement in the lighting industry. LEDs are extremely energy efficient and consume up to 90% less power than incandescent bulbs. LEDs convert about 80%-90% of the electrical energy to light, whereas traditional Light bulbs wastes 80% of energy to heat and use only 20% to light.
Buy Lumens, Not Watts... In the past, we bought light bulbs or tube light based on how much energy, or watts, they use. Wouldn't it make more sense to buy lights based on how much light they provide. When you're shopping for light bulbs, you can choose your next light bulb for the brightness you want by comparing lumens instead of watts.
