best way to choose the right E27/E14 LED lamp

 The benefits LED lamps are very energy efficient as they consume less energy than standard halogen or fluorescent lamps for the same light output.

They also have a very long lifespan, on average 15 to 20 times longer than halogen and incandescent bulbs.

By switching to LEDs, you can significantly reduce your energy bills by about 80% and quit the hassle of replacing your bulbs frequently!

Lamp base to choose the perfect LED alternative for your halogen bulb, you first need to check the lamp base of your actual lamp and choose the exact same one for the LED: E14 has a thin screw socket, and E27 has a larger screw socket.


Wattage
To choose the correct wattage of your E27 or E14 LED lamp, you need to divide the wattage of your actual halogen lamp by about 6 to find the equivalent LED wattage. For all Philips LEDs, the halogen and LED wattage is shown in the name of the product.

You can also choose the color temperature of your LED lamp:
827 is a very warm light used in homes
830 is a warm white light used in hotels or restaurants
840 is a cold white light used in offices or supermarkets
Most halogen lamps that you are using now have a color temperature of 827.



Dimming not every LED lamp is dimmable so you need to be a little careful if you would like to dim the light.

E27 and E14 LEDs have a voltage of 230V and can be used in your regular fixtures.

 You don't need to change your installation to use LEDs, simply replace your current halogen bulb by the LED to instantly start saving money on energy bills!
