## What does W mean for LED lights?

Now that it’s clear that wattage measure energy rather than light, the lower number of watts used in LED bulbs is a good thing. You can see that, just like you’ve heard, LED lighting is a more energy efficient way to shine light.

## What is 25W equivalent to in LED?

Compare wattage

Traditional bulb1 | Halogen2 | LED |
---|---|---|

25 watts | 15 watts | 2 watts |

40 watts | 25 watts | 5 watts |

60 watts | 40 watts | 7 watts |

75 watts | 45 watts | 9 watts |

**How bright is 70 LED?**

A 70 Watt LED fixture can produce 7000 Lumens or more and replace most highway and parking lot lighting fixtures to a more efficient and cost effecting light.

**How many watts is a 60w LED?**

Cost Comparison Between LEDs, CFLs, and Incandescent Light Bulbs

LED | Incandescent | |
---|---|---|

Watts per bulb (equiv. 60 watts) | 8.5 | 60 |

Cost per bulb | $5 | $1 |

KWh of electricity used over 25,000 hours | 212.5 | 1500 |

Cost of electricity (@ 0.10 per KWh) | $21.25 | $150 |

### Does wattage matter for LED?

LEDs are designed to use less energy and naturally have a lower watt rating. This means it’s useless to use watts to determine brightness. To fix the problem, bulb companies have started using lumens to rate bulbs. This gives you a more accurate indication of how much light to expect from an LED.

### Do LED lights use less wattage?

And LED bulbs, which are more energy efficient than their incandescent counterparts, can deliver the same amount of light using as little as 10 watts.

**WHAT LED bulb replaces a 100 watt bulb?**

LED equivalents to traditional incandescent light bulbs

Incandescent Light Bulb Wattage | LED Equivalent Wattage |
---|---|

100 Watt | 10 Watt |

75 Watt | 7.5 Watt |

60 Watt | 6 Watt |

50 Watt | 5 Watt |

**What LED replaces a 60W bulb?**

For example, a 60-watt incandescent light bulb gives approximately 800 lumens; therefore, to replace a 60-watt incandescent bulb with a LED bulb of the same brightness, one should purchase a LED bulb that also gives 800 lumens. A 60-watt incandescent light bulb can be replaced with a 10-watt LED.

## What is a 70 watt LED equivalent to?

Sodium lights can be high pressure sodium (HPS) or low pressure sodium (LPS)….LED equivalents to sodium lighting.

Sodium Light Bulb Wattage | LED Equivalent Wattage |
---|---|

150 Watt | 60 Watt |

70 Watt | 30 Watt |

## How much watt LED bulb is required for a room?

Since we’ve conflated watts and lumens, it’s easier to talk about bulbs in terms of watts. So if a 100-watt incandescent produces 1,500 lumens, and a 10-watt LED does the same, the 10-Watt LED may advertise “100-watt equivalent” on its label….Key Terms.

Room | Foot Candles Needed |
---|---|

Bedroom | 10-20 |

Hallway | 5-10 |

Bathroom | 70-80 |
