Lighting. Wednesday , September 19th , 2018 - 17:46:48 PM
Induction lighting was invented over 130 years ago as a potential revival to incandescent light but never really caught on. It has seen a rejuvenation over the last few years which has seen more money spent on product development. Induction lighting is best at lighting large spaces and the more powerful units are more efficient. The technology is similar to fluorescent except it uses electro-magnetic coils to excite the gas rather than a filament. Removing this weakness from the light mean that life expectancy is 100,000 hours (that's getting on for 12 years of continuous operation).
When you start developing your "project plan" for garden lighting, one of the first things you should consider is the type of lighting you will need in your various outdoor spaces. Task lighting is mostly functional. It's the most concentrated type of lighting. You need to install this type in areas where you want to read or carry out any form of detailed work (e.g. needlework and other craft hobbies). You may also want to install task lighting on your deck or in a work space or private area somewhere else in your garden.
Light quality and colour can dramatically change the appearance of a room so it is important to get this right. You wouldn't, for example, want bright white lighting in a bedroom, instead a soft warm white ambiance would be more suitable. When choosing a light bulb you first need to decide which colour temperature you require. Colour temperature is a measure of how warm or cool a colour appears. It is measured in Kelvin; the standard measurement for lighting output in addition to lumen output. Colour temperature is derived from the colour of light produced when carbon is heated. The Kelvin Scale ranges from extra warm white at 2,700k giving a warm yellow glow, to white at 3,500k, cool white at 4,000k and daylight colour at 6,500k which produces a white blue colour. LED, CFL and halogen energy savers are all available in a range of colour. Complaints have been made in the past about LED giving off a cool blue light but with the improvement in technology, as long as you buy a good quality LED this should not be a problem. It is then important to look at the colour rendering index (CRI) which shows to what extent the light will make an object appear its true colour. An incandescent bulb is rated at 100% because its light contains a full spectrum of colour. CFLs do not contain the full colour spectrum but a good quality triphosphor fluorescent rated between 80-90% will be sufficient for everyday use. Higher rated CFLs can be obtained but are usually only used by designers or artists and are less efficient. It is advisable not to buy a light bulb which scores below 80% on the CRI scale. Energy saving light bulbs have received a bad press at times because of the light they produce, but this has tended to be because many poor grade CFLs either brought from supermarkets or given out for free by energy companies have come onto the market.
