Landscape Lighting Lumens

Posted by happs (My Page) on

I have 12V landscaping lights in my backyard and when I went to the hardware store to get a replacement, all they had available were 25W Par36 bulbs vs the 50W I've been using. The 50W have a lumens rating of 640 whereas the 25W have a lumens of 270. Will I be able to notice the difference in my backyard at night? I also noticed on the package that the 25W bulbs only last 1.8yrs whereas the 50W ones I've been using last about 4 years---same brand.

RE: Landscape Lighting Lumens

The lumen output tells the brightness. 270lm from 640lm, too much gap between the two.
The LED ones are hot nowadays, why not take consider of one of them. Much less watt, but still enough lumen.
Just a suggestion, go below and check.
