Basic Lighting Questions

Collapsible content

What does LED stand for?

LED stands for Light Emitting Diode.

How do LEDs differ from incandescent bulbs?

LEDs are more energy-efficient, have a longer lifespan, and use a semiconductor to produce light, whereas incandescent bulbs use a filament that glows when heated.

Can LED bulbs be used in any light fixture?

Generally, yes, but it's important to check the bulb's size, shape, and wattage compatibility with the fixture.

Do LED bulbs get hot?

LEDs generate heat, but much less than incandescent bulbs. They are cool to the touch because the heat is efficiently dissipated through a heat sink.

Performance and Efficiency light bulb questions

Collapsible content

How long do LED bulbs last?

LED bulbs should last up to 25,000 to 50,000 hours, significantly longer than incandescent and CFL bulbs. Unfortunately most major brand, box store LEDs are only manufactured to last 8,000 to 10,000 hours.

Are LED bulbs energy-efficient?

Yes, LEDs use up to 80% less energy than incandescent bulbs, making them highly energy-efficient.

Do LED lights save money?

Yes, due to their energy efficiency and long lifespan, LEDs can save a significant amount of money on electricity bills and replacement costs over time.

Color and Lighting quality questions

Collapsible content

What is Color Rendering Index (CRI)?

CRI measures a light source's ability to show object colors realistically or naturally compared to a familiar reference source, like sunlight. The scale goes from 0 to 100, with higher values indicating better color rendering.

Can LEDs be dimmed?

Many LEDs are dimmable, but it's important to check the product specifications. Using a compatible dimmer switch is also crucial.

What does color temperature mean?

Color temperature is measured in Kelvins (K) and indicates the hue of a light source. Lower temperatures (2200K - 3500K) produce a warm, yellowish light, while higher temperatures (4000K - 6500K) produce a cooler, white, bluish light.

Safety and Environmental Impact questions about light bulbs

Collapsible content

Are LED bulbs safe?

Yes, LEDs are considered safe. They contain no mercury (unlike CFLs) and emit very little heat, reducing the risk of combustion or burns.

Are LED lights environmentally friendly?

Yes, LEDs use less energy and last longer than traditional bulbs, reducing energy consumption and the need for frequent replacements.

Can LED bulbs be used outdoors?

Yes, but look for LEDs specifically rated for outdoor use, which are designed to withstand weather conditions.

Technical Questions about Light Bulbs 

Collapsible content

What does lumens mean in LED lighting?

Lumens measure the total amount of visible light emitted by a source. In LEDs, higher lumens indicate brighter light.

What is an LED driver?

An LED driver is an electrical device that regulates the power to an LED or a string of LEDs, ensuring optimal performance and preventing overheating.

Why do some LEDs flicker when dimmed?

Flickering can occur if the LED is not compatible with the dimmer switch. Using a dimmer switch that is specifically designed for LEDs can minimize or eliminate flickering.

How is the hour rating on a bulb determined?

For example, Lamp manufacturers will test 1000 light bulbs and when the 500th bulb burns out, that is the average life hours. Hour ratings are referred to as Average Rated Life. Some lamps will last longer, and some will burn out quicker than expected.

How do you measure the length of a lamp?

Light bulbs are measured from end to end including the base. The length of a lamp is the Maximum Overall Length or M.O.L.

What is the difference between 120 volt and 130 volts?

Standard line voltage in the United States is 120 volts, lamps are often manufactured at 130 volts to increase lamp life and to offer protection against power surges, a 130-volt lamp may last twice as long but can be 15% dimmer than a 120-volt lamp.

How do I know what wattage to use in my fixture?

Check the fixture for wattage and voltage requirements. Using the wrong lamp in a fixture could cause the bulb to burnout early and may create a fire or safety hazard.

What is an ANSI code?

An ANSI code is designation that ensures certain specifications such as wattage, voltage, shape, and base. ANSI stands for American National Standards Institute.

Miscellaneous questions about light bulbs

Can LEDs emit UV light?

Most LEDs used for lighting do not emit UV light. However, there are specific UV LEDs designed for purposes where UV light is required. 

Is it easy to switch to LED lighting from incandescent bulbs?

Yes, switching to LED lighting is usually straightforward. LED bulbs are designed to fit into standard lighting fixtures, making the transition easy.

Do LED lights attract bugs?

LEDs attract fewer bugs than incandescent bulbs because they emit less heat and UV light, which are attractive to many insects.

Can I dispose of LED bulbs in regular trash?

While LEDs do not contain hazardous materials like mercury, recycling them is the best environmental practice. Check with your local waste management services for LED recycling options.

Can I put a dimmable bulb in a non dimmable socket?

Yes, you can put a dimmable light bulb into a non-dimmable socket.

Why do I have flickering light bulbs?

It may be the dimmer switch, a bulb nearing the end of its lifespan, or the bulb is not screwed in properly. If you replaced a flickering bulb but the problem persists, investigate wiring and voltage issues.

Why did the LED bulb join Tinder?

Because it was looking for a connection that wouldn’t leave it screwed and abandoned in a dim situation!

Why did the light bulb fail at school?

Because it kept going out during the tests!
