To replace a 100-watt incandescent bulb, look for a bulb that gives you about 1600 lumens. If you want something dimmer, go for less lumens; if you prefer brighter light, look for more lumens. Replace a 75W bulb with an LED bulb that gives you about 1100 lumens.
Also, what is 1000 lumens in Watts?
Lumens to watts table
|Lumens||Incandescent light bulb (watts)||Fluorescent / LED (watts)|
|900 lm||60 W||15 W|
|1125 lm||75 W||18.75 W|
|1500 lm||100 W||25 W|
|2250 lm||150 W||37.5 W|
What is the equivalent wattage for LED bulbs?
(The point, after all, is that they draw less energy.) For example, an LED bulb with comparable brightness to a 60W incandescent is only 8 to 12 watts. But don't bother doing the math -- there isn't a uniform way to covert incandescent watts to LED watts. Instead, a different form of measurement should be used: lumens.
How many lumens is a standard 60 watt bulb?
Replace a 75W bulb with an energy-saving bulb that gives you about 1100 lumens. Replace a 60W bulb with an energy-saving bulb that gives you about 800 lumens. Replace a 40W bulb with an energy-saving bulb that gives you about 450 lumens.
