What is a Lumen?

The light output of a bulb is measured in lumens. A typical 60w incandescent bulb delivers about 850 lumens. Lumens become important when you are trying to replace existing halogen and incandescent bulbs with energy saving ones. It is necessary to know the amount of lumens energy saving LED (or CFL) bulb delivers (usually indicated on the packaging) in order to choose the correct replacement for your incandescent.
