Instructions for Choosing LED bulbs

  • Look for the ENERGY STAR label since only these bulbs have met the guidelines that ensure energy-efficiency and light output.
  • Read the packaging carefully to ensure you are purchasing the right LED for the right fixture in your home.
  • The colour of the light that LEDs produce is measured in Kelvin. The box usually has a nutrition-type label on the back. For a warmer colour, choose soft white (around 2700 ​Kelvin). For a brighter, cooler colour, choose cool white (40​00 Kelvin).  
  • Be particularly careful in selecting LEDs for special purposes such as enclosed recessed fixtures, with dimmer switches, with timers or where exposed to weather and/or water.
