Hey all, I'm looking to replace a bunch of ~20 year old downlights with LED downlights. This will be a full housing replacement, not just switching out to LED bulbs.
Most of the house's bulbs have been replaced with CFL other than the lounge which is on a dimmer switch. In the lounge I've got an array of 6 downlights with 100w bulbs which have the level of brightness I'm happy with. Apparently 100w bulbs sit around 1300-1600 lumens however most of the LED downlights I've seen seem to hit 900-1000 lumens at best. These are apparently 100w equivalents although I'm not convinced as I've had a poor experience with CFL 100w equivalents in the past.
Keen to hear anyone's experience of going from 100w downlights to led downlights, what the lumen output was of the LEDs they'd replaced them with, and how the brightness compared with the 100w incandescent bulbs.
Thanks in advance!
