ABSTRACT
The article offers several considerations in buying new bulbs. The life span of a light emitting diode (LED) bulb and price must be looked at. It states that the color of the light produced by LED is measured on a scale called color temperature. It suggests that if one wants to light an area with a warmer light, a color temperature of 2700K or less must be used.
