Many people are now turning to LED panel lights. Because they save energy and reduce people's carbon footprint. Due to strong market demand, we offer a variety of options to meet convenience and aesthetic needs. For example, you can not only buy LED bulbs, but also LED panel lights. These can be mounted on the ceiling and illuminate the space in a wider range. LED panels can be square, rectangular and round, with different benefits for the location where you want to install the panels. Similarly, one can purchase LED luminaires that are hardwired to the surface.
A common question that comes to mind when buying LED lights is how many LED panel lights you might need. This obviously depends on the specific lighting needs of the room or the purpose you need to illuminate. For example, some people use LED panels to illuminate a room instead of adding a plan or illuminating a commercial sign.
Number of LED panel lights required
The number of LED lights required for space is primarily a matter of measuring the lumens required. Lumens are indicators that measure the brightness of LED lights. One thing you need to remember is that LED bulbs usually claim to provide the same brightness as incandescent bulbs, but they are actually darker when you use them. Experts say there is no standard on how to equal lumens to watts. Therefore, depending on the number of watts that an incandescent bulb may use, do not determine the number of LED panel lights required. Simply think about it with lumens.
According to the definition of lumens, the higher the lumen of the LED panel light, the better the brightness. Or, to put it more simply, the room will be brighter. However, when you consider other factors, it is actually not that easy. If you want to install LED panel lights in any room, you must also consider the size, use, natural lighting and color scheme. Similarly, the color of the actual LED light being installed may also affect brightness. The warm, soft white creates a pale yellow ambience, while the bright white LED ceiling lights create a daylight effect.
Here are some pieces of information that might help determine the amount of lumens you need:
Illuminated floor: 20 lumens per square foot
Desktop and work lighting: 50 lumens per square foot
Lighting on tables and other raised surfaces: 50 lumens per square foot
For example, a typical living room is 250 square feet. Simply multiply 20 by 250. Therefore, in such a room, you will need 5,000 lumens as the primary source. Now think about it, you read on the couch and need 4 square feet of reading light on each end. You will install 200 lumens on each side. For raised surfaces in a room like a dining table, measure the size of the table and multiply the area by 30.
