This is a very helpful chart, as I struggled somewhat with determining the wattage/lumens and associated brightness when I moved from incandescent to CFL's. I have now moved to LED's (it's worth the initial cost/investment). Newer LED's are available that have a glow that is yellow like an incandescent that we are all used to and are nice. I am also finding some LED's that can be dimmed and slowly seeing a greater range of smaller fittings. Some older fan kits have trouble with the very small LED bulbs. Still LED's are so much nicer than CFL's, safer, cool bulbs, lower power usage and actually do last longer than CFL's and incandescent bulbs.
