A halogen lamp still hangs in different homes. Despite the fact that a halogen lamp can easily be replaced by an LED light. One reason why we do not opt for LED lighting is the amount of light and the light color. We want the same light color as the old halogen lamp. Fortunately, a lot has changed in the world of LED in recent years. LED lamps are available in different strengths and light colors. So you don’t have to choose a blue light if you want to replace a halogen lamp with an LED.
Light colors for a halogen lamp
With LED you can choose cool white, white or warm white. Would you like the same color as your old halogen lamp? Choose warm white. This corresponds to the light color of incandescent lamps. The color may differ per brand. The supplier will try to indicate which light color the lamp gives. You can decide for yourself which light color you prefer.
Power of your new LED lamp
You currently have a halogen lamp with 40 watts of power. You want to replace this for an LED light. Most LED lamps go in the lumen to give an idea of the amount of light. You can opt for a 3 Watt LED light. A 3 Watt LED lamp provides approximately as much light as your old 30 Watt halogen lamp. Do you now have a 50-watt halogen lamp? Try a 5 or 6 Watt LED lamp. You soon notice that the number of light matches.
Consult with an LED expert
The seller of LED lamps is, of course, an expert in the field of these lamps. Of course, the salesperson can give you extensive advice on which lamps you need to replace old halogen lamps. Thanks to their advice you never buy the wrong lamp. Buying the wrong lamp is very unfortunate because you have been using LED for at least 10 years. Always choose the right LED lamp, so that you can enjoy it for years to come.
