LED Office Lighting: Save Energy – Save Money...

Office lighting can consume anywhere from 20 to 30% of the electricity bill. Until recently, the commonly used light sources in offices were CFLs (compact fluorescent lamps) and incandescent or filament lamps. However, owing to concerns of inefficiency and use of rare materials like mercury and tungsten, LED office lighting fixtures are now finding wide acceptance. Compared to CFLs and incandescent lamps, LED lights use less energy to give out equivalent light output. However, high purchase costs often hold buyers back from buying these devices. However we show you why LED office lighting fixtures can help pay back the invested money much faster than you would expect: LEDs pay back their cost by slashing bills LED lamps emit more lumens of light per watt of energy consumed. They also do not heat up as much as CFLs and incandescent, which give off 80% and 90% of energy as heat respectively. The extra amount of heat also means the air conditioning systems have to work more and consume more power as well. LEDs also have an operating life above 25,000 hours compared to 8000 hours for CFLs and 3000 hours for filament bulbs. So a single LED would remain in operation while multiple conventional lamps are changed during the same period. As we consider the costs over the entire life of the lamp, LED lamps pay back more both in energy costs and new purchases. They are also sturdier than other lamps and easier to install. The output and colour tone can also be changed on specific models. How LEDs work Nick Holonyak Jr. is credited with developing the first visible-spectrum LED while working in GE in 1962. LEDs use semiconductor diodes to produce light using the reverse photoelectric effect-...

Ten Things to Remember When You Buy Modern Lamps and Lights...

Getting the proper lighting done for the interior is no less a task than choosing the right furniture or selecting the proper shades for couches, bed sheets and curtains. While selecting a modern lamp or lighting fixture, some things that are to be kept in mind are of diverse nature, but probably the most important of them all is to decide the purpose of the light that is, whether the light is going to be used as an ambient light, task light or accent light. Once that is decided, one can stress upon the following rules to decide on the intricacies of combined perfection before buying the modern lamps or lights. The proper combination of floor and table lighting It is not proper to buy modern lamps in a disproportionate quantity and the increase of table lamps should always be complemented by proper floor lighting and vice versa. The equal or homogenous mix of light in any room makes it more effective than concentrating on a singular aspect. The scaling should be proper Overhead fixtures, which were even a few days back were only being discussed in the context of professional writing, has found a new application in the domestic interior design regime as well. But, the overhead lighting should always be scaled with the height and breadth of a ceiling rather than buying stuff just to fill up the space. Use canned lights properly If canned lights are to be bought they are to be bought with their purpose and potential locations clearly etched in mind as these lights run the heavy risk of being misused. Buy stuff of different colors Consumers, especially those looking to develop serenity and elegance in their décor are often afraid to buy...

Modern Light Fixtures – What’s Best For Your Home?...

Interior decoration has slowly but steadily evolved into a branch of design science which is these days independently practiced as a profession all over the world. Among the constituents of décor the most important yet most underrated is lighting. People concentrate on furniture, curtains; bed covers with more gusto than they look at the lighting fixtures. This is partially because of the ignorance and partially due to the lack of promotion or attention that these modern lighting fixtures get. In this blog, we will look into the diverse items of stylish and modern lighting designs. Chandeliers These are the most traditional and most integral component of any room’s lighting regime. The traditional flowing designs have gone through many a change over the years and the chandeliers have become more and more contemporary and sometimes fluidly abstract. Chandeliers are the center pieces which act as a fulcrum for the entire lighting paradigm of a room and depending upon the desired intensity of illumination the chandeliers have been designed with many forms and patterns. Table lamps These fixtures have the capacity of serving as both decorative and task lighting. A modern table lamp can be a regal showpiece if placed properly and can simultaneously serve as a task light if the size and style of the light is so decided. A designed environment can really become complete with proper use of table lamps as it serves both functional and ornamental purposes. Floor Lamps Floor lamps are the newest addition in the line of contemporary lighting and it serves mainly as a decorative accent lighting fixture. There are varieties of floor lamps available that can be put into use in a domestic interior format or in professional setups like gallery pathways etc....
The LED Light Bulbs and New Uses For an Old Idea

The LED Light Bulbs and New Uses For an Old Idea...

With our world become more and more interested in energy efficiency, “green” energy and responsible use of natural resources, most people have heard about LED lighting. More specifically, most people have heard that an LED light bulb is a safe and extremely power-efficient way to light a home, a store or an office. The fact is that many homes and businesses have already made the switch to LED-based lighting, because it is an incredibly easy thing to do. Many devices in your home or at your work may already work with LED’s. They are so common that many people simply don’t notice them anymore. LED lighting has become a hot topic of conversation in the last few years as its use becomes more widespread, but Light Emitting Diodes have been in use since 1962! The first incarnation of the LED light bulb, however, couldn’t have lit an entire building, or even an entire room for that matter! They could emit only very low-intensity light, and they couldn’t be any color other than red. Even when other colors became possible, it simply wasn’t possible to make an LED bright enough to use as business or residential lighting. LEDs in those days were mainly used as indicator lights on electronic devices, or as the numbers on digital clocks. Advances in technology have allowed the LED light bulb to reach its full potential, however. No longer the small glowing dots of light that told us when the power was on or whether the batteries were getting low, LED lighting can come in as many colors as designers can imagine and it can be powerful enough not only for indoor lighting, but for outdoor floodlighting as well. Fortunately the revamp in LED technology...
