- Transformer compatibility.
- Potential color shift over lamp life.
- Performance standardization has not yet been streamlined.
- Overheating can cause reduced lamp life.
What size LED light do I need?
Multiply your room square footage by the footcandle requirement. For example, a 100-square foot living room, which needs 20 footcandles, will need 2,000 lumens. A 100-square foot dining room, which needs 40 footcandles, will need 4,000 lumens 2 (see PDF and complete footcandle index).
Are LED bulbs worth it?
