Lumens vs. Watts: Watts the big idea?

Led has taken over phasing out the old school incandescent bulbs. Instead of how many watts for my room, its how many lumens. As Canadians we had to change from lbs to kgs, inches to cm, now it’s watts to lumens!

Lumens tell you how much light a bulb emits, so brighter the lumens the brighter light. Watts is measured in how much energy the bulb consumes.
