Have you ever gone into a paint store and found the perfect color sample and said… WOW I just loved this color and bought gallons of that paint only to find out that once you painted your walls at home that the color is “nowhere” close to what you saw in the store? Or bought wallpaper and thought it would look amazing in your house, only to find out that after you installed it that it doesn’t look the same as when you saw it in the store?
Lighting retrofits offer many benefits for building owners, building users, and electric utilities. Among the most important are reduced electricity demand, significant energy savings, and lower building operating costs. This article provides a resource that explains the technical and financial considerations of lighting retrofits, describes the most popular retrofit possibilities,
and illustrates sound retrofit decision making.
Before artificial light took over the industrialized world during the late 19th century, humans were much more connected to and affected by the 24-hour light cycle. Our biology is structured around the light from the sun (or its absence). We call these natural cycles of the mind and body circadian rhythms.
The modernization of lighting systems has generated a significant improvement in energy efficiency. Thanks, in large part, to our industry’s innovative technologies, lighting products are now more efficient, while energy use has been reduced substantially. This article includes a few definitions of what lumens are as well as some different light source lumen intensity measurements.
LED lighting is the latest technological lighting advancement on the market right now. LEDs offer a variety of outstanding benefits because they operate differently than traditional fluorescent and incandescent bulbs. Compared to the traditional forms of lighting, LEDs are not only more durable, but they also have a prolonged lifespan and use only a fraction of the amount of energy that other light bulbs on the market use.
LED lamps offer many benefits, perhaps the biggest advantage being the cost efficiency and environmentally friendly design. As the use of LED lamps is on a rise, the use of recessed LED lighting fixtures follows. Recessed lighting isn’t a new design but is becoming increasingly popular as it allows for the easy and practical use of LED bulbs.
