This will ensure that the lights create the desired effect and that glare which would create an uncomfortable environment for visitors can be eliminated. For example, if a pool light is installed facing the patio area, the light will no doubt become an unwelcome distraction for people trying to enjoy an evening out of the house. By the same token, you wouldn't want to use high wattage uplighters to demarcate a pathway, as people using the pathway may end up with temporary blindness every time they look down towards the path.

A successful design can modulate the quality and quantity of light to address the users' psychological and physiological needs. Indeed, lighting is one of the most powerful elements of interior design. It is the Rosetta Stone that allows our eyes to see and interpret the world around us: without which will be a built environment devoid of color, contrast, and interest.

You might also want to choose high voltage for a powerful garden up-light to illuminate a large tree or building. With high voltage lights you will need to install an armoured electrical cable that can't be damaged by gardening tools and equipment. You will also need to use appropriately insulated electrical connectors.

Floor-mounted uplighters can also be installed behind plant pots in order to create a silhouette. Downlighters will create shadows on the ground, which are created by leaves, branches and other obstructions that are in the path of the light. Backlighting creates a silhouette which is formed by the object that is placed in front of the light. Objects that have bold or distinct shapes work well when backlit.

This makes it possible to install these lights as part of the décor. You can wrap it in wreaths, put it around twigs or even use them in garlands without the risk of overheating. As LED fairy lights have smaller sizes, they can be fitted to any decoration as an added light reflection or an afterglow.

Simply replacing an incandescent bulb with an energy saving alternative can cut electricity use by up to 80%. The Energy Saving Trust believes that lighting accounts for 8% of household electricity costs in the UK which means there is great potential for substantial energy and money savings.

The question to ask is: will I recoup the cost of the lamp and more through reduced electricity use and long lamp life? If yes, then LED is the way to go, if not, there are other energy saving alternatives available.

Liliana Merritt Lighting, 2018-09-24 11:58:11. Fluorescent lighting has been around a long time and you may not think it is that efficient. Old fluorescent lighting certainly isn't T12 and T8 tubes and their drivers can be horribly wasteful, sometimes using double the amount of power they are rated at. However T5 fluorescent tubes coupled with a modern ballast is remarkably efficient, almost as efficient in fact as LED lighting. Modern warm start ballasts have also increased reliability and allowed for extending the life of the tubes which can now reach as much as 30,000 or 40,000 hours. Modern drivers also operate at high frequency, unlike their older counterparts, which mean there is no longer a noticeable flicker with fluorescent lights. Fluorescent lights do also suffer from early failures, and because they rely on a filament the more often they are turned on and off the shorter their life will be; this means turning them on and of with presence detection to reduce their use and save money on your bill could backfire when you have to frequently replace the tubes. If you do go down this route make sure the drivers feature warm start and don't set the controls to frequently turn the lights on and off.
