When I decided to do energy audit of my house the first thing I did was to check unit consumption pattern for complete year, I will cover complete details of energy audit findings in my next post.
Here I would jump to my decision to replace all the bulbs and tube lights at home by LED ones and my research on selection of the same
I have researched the most trusted brands since the market is flooded with numerous cheap options on LED lights !!
The one which I have gone for is first in the list … rest all follows as result of my research on various websites and reviews on LED lights …. and technical specifications you will find on many websites I would focus here on user experience rather than specifications of LED tube lights …
Also another important factor while selection of LED tube lights is the Warranty and Support available, for brands like Wipro, Philips or the one you will select .. ensure that product warranty support is available near your house, you may buy from internet but check with local stores for the prices and support availability please.
Most of the designs are stylish, sleek and surely adds the aesthetic value of your house 🙂
Selecting LED tubelights for home use in India
Wipro Garnet 4 feet 20-Watt LED Batten (Cool Day Light)
- Typically the light is seen as white and not yellow, but if you wish to get yellow shade, buy Warm white colored tube light
- When the LED goes off you need to replace the complete set, not like normal tubelight you can get only a tube, however since the life is preety high ~30,000 hours you need not worry about it. Also the product is with 2 years of warranty.

Philips 31082 Slimline 18-Watt LED Wall Lamp
Philips LED tubelights are costlier than most of the brand competition and that is how increases the expectations …After checking on websites for the reviews, most of the people said to have high price to the output ratio, so I dropped idea of going with Philips LED tubelight in-spite of this is my favorite brand for years 🙁

SYSKA LED T5 Slim Tube Light – 16 W 1200mm Mordena Series (Linkable)
Here they have indicated it to be linkable, meaning can be chain linked to next tubelight …this will help in case you have large hall and wish to fit multiple tubelights …
This is good upcoming company, however I did not find highly appreciable reviews about the tubelights by Syska LED ..
