Many times I need to provide and then design lighting systems and I've found that ( Lumen output ) is the key to a better system.. Only until several years ago have I recently incorporated the Lumen output into any design, I was always use to having an engineered drawing to follow.

I'm big on the Halogena brand which always seems to be the best value, the lamps are usually around $10.00 but to get 1200 lumens out of a 70w bulb is awesome ..

I've considered LED and aside from the quadrupled price, I'm still not sold on the Lumen output,granted they operate for less money but I don't want to loose the brightness, although I noticed the other day at a gas station these overhead LED 12 x 12's each containing about 20 little LED outputs ... those suckers were very bright. I'm guessing 10k Lumens per fixture.

Is LED in your opinions the better Illumination Product.

Anyone claiming to know everything about Electrical, is wrong.
