Lighting your home with LEDs

LED Light Bulbs


More efficient, lasts longer, better light .

What's a LED?

A light-emitting diode (LED) is a semiconductor device that emits visible light when an electric current passes through it.

The LED bulbs require much less wattage than the CFL or Incandescent light bulbs and produce significantly less heat, which is why LED bulbs can be 75% more energy-efficient and last up to 25X longer.

Light Bulb Comparison Chart

The average Ontario home has 30 light fixtures. 

Lighting is about 10% of your energy use at home.


What you need to know when looking for LED bulbs

Lumens = Brightness

The higher the lumens the higher the light output therefore brighter. Tip - get dimmable LEDs combined with dimmer switches to be in total control.

lumens 200

60W → 800 lm

lumes 500

75W → 1,100 lm

lumens 800

100W → 1,600 lm

Kelvins = Colour

Choose the right colour temperature for the different rooms in your home.

Warm White

Inviting, comfortable, relaxing. Perfect for bedrooms, living rooms or dens.

Bright White or Cool White

Efficient and balanced. Perfect for kitchens, workspaces, and bathrooms.


Crisp, refreshing, and energetic. Perfect for reading.

Watts = Energy a bulb uses

Watt (W) is the SI unit of power, equivalent to one joule per second, corresponding to the power in an electric circuit in which the potential difference is one volt and the current one ampere.

Put simply, the higher the wattage of a light bulb the more energy it consumes.
