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.

If you think that these fluorescent bulbs will give off that same kind of light-green lighting that the fluorescent tubes give off or buzz like the conventional fluorescent tube lights do, you will be delightfully surprised. Many of these compact fluorescent bulbs also have the proper filtered glass that can make the bulb give of the same light color as your conventional 100 watt incandescent light bulb. These compact fluorescent bulbs are a very low wattage and give off much more light than an incandescent light of the same wattage. For example, a compact incandescent light of 15 to 20 watts will give off the same amount of an incandescent light of 60 to 100 watts. Furthermore, the compact fluorescent bulbs last much longer than your average incandescent bulb.

A typical incandescent bulb produces about 17 light lumens per watt at best. Most of the electrical energy fed to the bulb is radiated as heat, resulting in a very inefficient and wasteful light source. LEDs, on the other hand, produce anywhere from 60 to 100 lumens per watt. Very little energy fed into the LED is radiated as heat, resulting in a very efficient light source that can produce a lot more light than an incandescent while using far less electrical power. Considering the importance of navigation lighting and the need to conserve power on a boat, this is an extremely attractive benefit. You can use less power, yet produce a much stronger nav light signal, improving your visibility to other boats while reducing power consumption at the same time. On smaller boats, you could run a basic set of navigation lights all night and still not deplete your batteries. Increased safety and increased efficiency, all from a simply change in light sources!

Lighting is best to fine tune at night, when one can see the effect of the different types of lights as well as that of the sheer number of lights proposed. One can install different circuits of lights in the garden, each suited to a different purpose; one for entertaining, perhaps lighting up all of the outdoor patios, one that only lights up feature areas such as garden statues or a water feature, and one that uses motion sensors in order to form part of your security system. This will provide you with different functionality that can be used for different occasions.

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.

Whether the lamp is for our front yard or our back yard, it has to be up to standard because this can make or break the beauty of your outdoor space. Making the right choice is also imperative when it comes to promoting security at home. Your home will become less of a target for prowling burglars if your outdoor space is well-lit as this shows passers-by that the space is extensively used.

It is much brighter than solar or rope lighting and can be placed anywhere (lamps do not have to be exposed to the sun to illuminate.) Landscape lighting lamps are typically made of metal to withstand harsh weather although lamps are also available in more economical plastic. Wattages for landscape lamps can range from two to fifty watt bulbs. Lamp styles come in a variety of shapes and styles including small floodlights, spotlights, two and three tier lamps, bollards, lanterns, coach lights, step lights, deck lights, fence and post lights.
Ivanna Benton Lighting, 2018-09-21 04:58:18. Each lamp is attached by contacts to the wire and has a staked end which can be pushed into the ground to keep the lamp anchored and secure. Wire can be buried under two or three inches of soil or mulch. Today, a new line of LED landscape lighting lamps are available. LED's last longer, provide bright, white light and are more energy efficient. Transformers, wire and lamp heads can be purchased separately or in a kit which includes wire, transformer, contacts and lamps. Kits come in a variety of wattages and lamp styles and range in cost from $20.00 to $150.00, depending on the size of the transformer, length of wire and number of lamps.
Nadia Henderson Lighting, 2018-09-20 10:28:47. Incandescent light is a very basic type of lighting. One of their upsides is that it is cheap. It is definitely cheaper than other lighting fixtures out there. Also, its light quality is unparalleled. For outdoor spaces, this might work better in lighting up a bigger area. However, if you are after diffused lighting even in your outdoor space, using incandescent outdoor wall light and flood lights might not be the best option.
Alessandra Hogan Lighting, 2018-09-20 05:42:19. Improvements in the color rendering of standard cold white fluorescent lamps have given rise to a wide range of products such as full spectrum, deluxe warm white and cool white light bulbs. Additionally electronic ballasts now allow easy dimming while alleviating the issues of lamp flicker, making fluorescents a more attractive lighting option. With their efficient light output and low cost, they remain the most economical way of providing uniform, shadow frees lighting over an extended period of time.
Ivanna Benton Lighting, 2018-09-21 05:01:38. Mosaic lights provide another artistic lighting option. Mosaic designs are not new; they have been around since the time of the ancient Greeks and Romans. Mosaics are usually made of broken glass or pottery, which is set into plaster or cement, creating a very durable and colorful material. It is then fashioned into a glass ball that fits over the light bulb and attached to a stake. You can create a virtually unlimited number of designs and colors with mosaic lights. If you can't find a mosaic light that fits your design scheme, you can have a local artisan create a custom design for your solar fixture.
Cali Montgomery Lighting, 2018-09-21 02:56:10. Another important aspect when planning the illumination of a house are the switches. Try to place them near the doors and easily to reach in order to turn on or turn off the lights in comfort. In the living room, install a switch for each lamp or group of them and dimmable lights. Know that it takes about 20 watts of light per square meter of space. Several table lamps or floor lamps, spread around the room, give a softer effect than a single central lamp.
