Several different types of light fixtures are used in the kitchen to provide adequate light to all areas of the room, including task lighting, room lighting, and ambient lighting. Watch this video to find out more.
Since LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) generate little heat and use much less energy than traditional bulbs, they’re the “green” choice for holiday lighting. LEDs are much more durable than regular bulbs and last up to 50 times longer. The cool light of LEDs means they won’t dry out your Christmas tree like incandescent bulbs, which reduces the chance of fire.
The new Philips LED flood light for indoor recessed and track lighting applications is energy efficient and produces a soft white light. The bulbs last up to 15 years and are guaranteed not to hum. Philips LED lights are available at The Home Depot.
Unlike standard incandescent bulbs, LED lights (Light Emitting Diodes) don’t have a filament that will burn out, so they last a very long time. In fact, you could burn an average LED eighteen hours a day for almost 8 years before it would stop working! An LED bulb will even outlast most compact fluorescent bulbs.
Dimmer switches are a great way to enhance the atmosphere in almost any room of your home, but they’re also a great way to think green. Dimming your lights by half, increases your energy savings on that fixture 40%.
Tubular skylights are a great way to provide natural light in dark rooms, closets, and hallways. The interior of the tube contains a highly reflective surface, so sunlight is reflected into the room throughout the day. Tubular skylights are easier to install than traditional skylights and provide light during the day without using any electricity.
