Replacing Incandescent Light Bulbs with LED Bulbs

The old 100 Watt incandescent light bulb produced between 1200 and 1600 lumens depending on voltage and who made the bulb. It all also punched light in all directions. To replace the 100 watt light bulb with a LED you will need a bulb that has atleast 1200 lumens. This LED should also be omni-directional so the light illuminates in all directions. If you are also looking for the same light color as the standard 100 watt incandescent you will need a 2700 Kelvin LED. The 3000 Kelvin will be brighter and whiter than a standard incandescent.

Use the Guide Below to replace your incandescent light bulbs with LED:

- To Replace a 250 watt incandescent use a LED with at least 3600 Lumens
- To Replace a 150 watt incandescent use a LED with at least 2800 Lumens
- To Replace a 100 watt incandescent use a LED with at least 1600 Lumens
- To Replace a 75 watt incandescent use a LED with at least 1200 Lumens
- To Replace a 60 watt incandescent use a LED with at least 800 Lumens
- To Replace a 40 watt incandescent use a LED with at least 500 Lumens

I recommend trying a few LED bulbs before investing in LED. I know many customers that are replacing 100 Watt incandescent with a 800 Lumen LED and they tell me it appears to be brighter than their old bulbs.
