When you are making the switch to LED bulbs, you should make sure that you know the wattage of your current bulbs. Watt used to be equal to visible light; however, this isn’t the same when you’re moving to LED bulbs. When you choose your LED bulb, you should choose based on the number of lumens. And the number of lumens is how much light is produced.
