ENERGY EFFICIENT LIGHTING
We're proud to be able to provide products which can reduce your energy consumption while improving the effectiveness of lighting.
Alternative Approaches To Energy Efficient Lighting
i. Re-lamping of existing fixtures with energy efficient LED lamps.
ii. Replacing fixtures with specifically designed efficient fixtures.
iii. Installing a totally new lighting plan combining energy efficient fixtures and lamps with optimised switching.
Practice Energy Efficient Techniques Layering
Many environments including homes now use layering; low LUX levels over wide areas for general access and higher LUX levels in precise areas for work activities, safety and highlighting of features, artworks etc.
The use of layering with several switched and dimmable circuits in a room can achieve a high degree of energy efficiency along with greater comfort and ambience.
Optimise the use of natural light within a building, north facing windows provide light throughout the day. Efficiency can be improved by planning banks of lighting, so that only dark areas are artificially lit at certain times of the day.
Task Lighting and Spot Lighting
The recommended LUX levels in AS / NZS1680 often only apply to precise areas. Use of task lighting such as desk and floor lamps as well as spot lighting will be most efficient for these work areas.
Areas infrequently used can have sensors or timers installed to switch lights on and off.
Reflectors and Diffusers often gather dust due to warm air movement. Cleaning provides increased light levels.
