Updating globe lights
Energy Earth has created this light bulb buying guide to help you make an educated decision when it comes to updating the bulbs in your home.We hope our color temperature chart and light bulb brightness chart help you to choose your next LED or CFL bulb.
The lumens scale indicates the brightness of a bulb and should be used when selecting your new LED or CFL bulbs.But I only got to that point after coming up with a bunch of convoluted pole options (hmm, that sounded wrong), and even attempting and failing at one of them (again, sounding wrong).My failure was not so much with the pole itself but with my method of attachment whereby I hung over the rail, split my wood not one not two but three times, and stripped all my screws in the process (is it just me, or are these words sounding really awkward? But let’s not dwell on those low moments (or strip club talk) any longer.CFLs and LEDs are available in warm colors to match the yellowish light of incandescent bulbs, but you can also choose cooler colors with whiter or bluer light.A lower kelvin number mean the light appears more yellow; higher kelvin numbers mean the light is whiter or bluer.
Light color, or color temperature, is measured using the Kelvin scale.
