What are the different lighting choices available? There are many energy-saving light bulbs available, such as compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), light emitting diodes (LEDs), etc. Although they cost more than the traditional incandescent bulbs, however, save a lot of money because they use less energy. One can easily find these in almost every hardware and home improvement store and can be fixed by taking help of a professional electrician.
CFL vs LED light bulbs: which is better? Compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) are a version of the long tube fluorescent lights. They use less electricity than the traditional light bulbs. Moreover, an ENERGY STAR-rated CFL uses about one-fourth of the energy and lasts longer than a traditional incandescent that puts out the same amount of light. It contains mercury, which is a toxic heavy metal, which is harmful to both health and the environment.
Other Important factors: It is recommended to get a professional home energy audit with the help of a professional electrician. This helps one to pinpoint areas where the home is losing energy and what all improvements are required to save money in the long run. The professional recommends making upgrades in a home energy audit, which can save up to 10%-30% of the annual utility bill.
In cove lighting the fixtures are hidden and what counts is the way the light is spread on the ceiling or the walls. It can provide form and function. The aluminum casing of low profile works as a cove and the optics offer unplanned uniform lighting for corridor and office application. If there is a recess or cove present then asymmetric lighting solution with adjustable aiming can be used.
How a LED works? The LED is an electronic light source that works by the effect of the electroluminescence. When a semi-conductor diode is turned on, the electrons recombine with the holes, and the energy is discharged as light.
