Light Bulb Question

Electricity - Technology?

 

The bulbs are listed as "60 watt incondescent modified spectrum replacement" and that they use 28% less energy than 60 watt bulbs.  Elsewhere it says the brightness of these is 620 lumens vs 840 lumens for regular 60 watt bulbs.

 

Does this less energy mean the bulbs are actually giving off less light to see by than the old regular 60 watt bulbs?

 

Thank you.

Lumens is light output, so yes, it will be dimmer overall.
