There are so many different types of light bulbs out on the market that it can be hard to know where to start. However, more and more people are opting to change over from the old incandescent light bulbs and are choosing to use the newer energy-efficient LED bulbs instead thanks to the dramatic power savings that will help the environment and help to bring your energy bills right down without any change to your existing light fittings.
One type of LED bulb is the E14 LED bulbs. These, as with any normal bulb, come in a number of different shapes, sizes, brightness’s and indeed prices. Which one is right for you depend on where you are fitting it, how much illumination you want and how much you want to pay. However, you are likely to find E14 LED bulbs ideal for replacing any of the existing light bulbs that you currently have, meaning that you can quickly and easily reduce your lighting bill by as much as 90% without sacrificing any light or making any changes.
There are a number of different types of bulb that fall into the E14 LED bulbs category. These can include candle shaped bulbs, dimmable golf ball bulbs and even spotlights to replace the powerful halogen light bulbs. So, the first thing you need to decide on is which bulb you need in order to replace your existing incandescent bulb. Obviously if you already have a candle shape bulb, in a chandelier for example, then you will want to replace it with a similar shape. There are plenty of E14 LED bulbs which will perfectly match the incandescent varieties of bulbs. This means that you should still easily be able to find a very similar size and shape of LED bulb that you previously had, meaning that there is no need to go out and buy new light fittings or sacrifice the look or feel of your lamps and lighting that you already have in your home.
After choosing your shape, you will need to consider the amount of light that you are looking to get out of your E14 LED bulbs. In most cases, you will want to replace your existing light bulbs with LED bulbs that still produce the same level of light. To do this, you will need to look at the lumens level rather than the power level. E14 LED bulbs require far less power to produce light than incandescent bulbs which means that a 40 watt candle shape bulb of the old incandescent variety only produces the same amount of light as a good quality 3 watt E14 LED bulb. Therefore the watts can be slightly misleading as you would be hard pushed to find a 40 watt LED bulb as it would be equivalent to a 4000 watt incandescent bulb.
