Janiyah Berger Lighting, 2018-09-20 06:15:51. The proper name for color temperature is The Correlated Color Temperature (CCT). The CCT is described in degrees Kelvin (starting at absolute zero). It is backwards in a way, because when a color of a light source has a high temperature associated with it, it is considered to be a cool color, and if it has a low temperature it is a warm color. Lighting sources with a CCT rating below 3200 K are usually considered "warm", while those with a CCT above 4000 K are usually considered "cool" in appearance. Using a light with a high Correlated Color Temperature will give a greater perception of brightness in the space than lower ones. When calculating a color temperature (CCT) we take the light we are looking at, and compare it to a Blackbody standard base line color model that has radiant power at all wavelengths of light, and where our color falls according to the base model will tell us what our color temperature is. Even at a given Correlated Color Temperature, color can vary. To avoid such variation, the EPA recommends you purchase bulbs from the same manufacturer at the same time. The color temperature rating is listed on the product packaging.

As most rooms are used for many different purposes, there are likely to be times when more light is needed for practical reasons, such as the children getting their homework done, but then more ambient lighting is desired for relaxing in the evening.

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.

With enhanced features, these products are more useful than ever. These bright lights are not just for big parties and special occasions. You can also use them at home to have a more controlled ambience in certain areas of the house. It is just a matter of choosing the right type of lighting to achieve the effect you are looking for. Indoor fairy lights and curtain lights highlight the festivity by adding a little drama to the overall design and decoration of the chosen location. Since these are mostly battery-powered lighting units, it is quite easy to place them from one area to another.

The wire is attached to a transformer that is designed to be installed outside and plugged into an exterior GFCI outlet. The transformer, or power pack as it is also called, reduces the landscape lighting from 120 volts to 12 volts, making the run of lamps and the wire safe for dogs, children and the occasional errant lawnmower or gardener digging with a shovel. There is not shock if for any reason, the landscape wire is exposed, cut or compromised.

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.
Sylvie Mcneil Lighting, 2018-09-21 18:21:48. The main objectives for choosing outdoor lighting are to make the House More Secure. Most houses have outside areas where the main objective is to ensure security. Security lights are in a class of their own, and their overall appearance and mode of operation shouldn't be allowed to prejudice your choice. They are not always as elegant as you might like, and the light from them is usually very bright and harsh and should never be used to implement lighting effects.

This low-level lighting is less intrusive than would be floodlights or pole lights, yet provides enough lighting for people to find their footing on the steps in even the darkest evening. It is similar in function to the aisle lights in movie theaters, which provides the light for moviegoers to find their way to their seats in the darkened room.

This type of kitchen fixture is a perfect choice for those who prefer unobtrusive to decorative lighting. Recessed lighting can provide task, accent, or general kitchen lighting. This type of kitchen light comes in mini track systems, slender strips, surface mounted, or small recessed disks known as pucks. Under cabinet fixtures are typically installed under wall cabinets to supply task lighting by illuminating work surfaces and counters without projecting shadows. They can also be installed inside cabinets that have glass fronts.
Braylee Woodward Lighting, 2018-09-21 18:45:08. The commode - This area is definitely an area for task lighting. There should be enough light in this area to be able to comfortably see what you are doing without a lot of glare. The light shouldn't be so low that it is hard for your eyes to see what you are doing. This light should be a comfortable reading light. This light could be supplied by recessed lighting above the toilet, a small chandelier, or maybe a decorative spotlight over the area. The idea is to bring elegance and style to the bathroom while giving enough light to accomplish your duties and possibly some reading to pass the time.
Ailani French Lighting, 2018-09-21 17:10:11. When looking for the right kitchen lighting, first decide what kind of atmosphere you want your kitchen to have.

Here are some ideas for the types of kitchen lighting you should look at when starting your search.

These lamps only offer around a 30% energy saving over incandescents and typically last 2,000-5,000 hours but they do have some advantages over LED and CFLs which are worth considering. In some cases truly retrofit LED can be hard to find and difficulties with the fitting and size of the lamp can occur. The nature of a CFL means its appearance differs from that of an incandescent. Halogen energy savers are however available in a range of shapes including spot bulbs, GLS, candle, aluminium reflector and golf ball making them an easy retrofit replacement for many traditional incandescents and an option worth thinking about particularly if you require decorative on show lighting. For those wishing to retain the traditional shape of their lighting long term, a G9 halogen adaptor is a great way to do so. A G9 halogen capsule is fitted in to the adaptor base (available as SBC, BC, SES, ES) which is in turn screwed into a decorative cover. Once the halogen capsule has expired, the bulb can be unscrewed and only the capsule needs replacing - meaning your decorative lighting remains the same. Another advantage of halogen energy savers is that unlike some LED and CFL they are fully dimmable. Furthermore halogens and CFLs emit light evenly whereas LEDs emit light directionally so make sure to check the beam angle before purchasing to ensure you get the right light output.
