Lightning Design

Conserve Energy. Save Cost.

Besides affecting the physical and emotional well-being of the building occupants, a building's interior lighting system is both a dominant consumer of electrical energy and a major source of internal heat. In commercial buildings it normally accounts for more than 30% of the total electrical energy consumed. Yet much of this expense can be avoided.

Specifying a high quality energy efficient lighting system that utilizes both natural and electric sources as well as lighting controls can provide a comfortable yet visually interesting environment for the occupants of a space which enhances lighting quality, reducing environmental impacts, and promoting health and work productivity.

Energy Efficient Lamps Used Today

To achieve a quality lighting environment, we carefully choose the equipment to satisfy both performance and aesthetics needs

Fluorescent
Lamps

Fluorescent Lamps are about 3 to 5 times as efficient as standard incandescent lamps and can last about 10 to 20 times longery

High-Intensity Discharge Lamps (HID)

This kind of lights are still one of the best performing and most efficient lamps for lighting large areas or great distances

Incandescent
Lamps

Incandescent lamps are still used for accent and specialty lighting, where the warm color, controlled brightness, instant-on, & dimming capabilities are needed

Energy-Efficient Ballasts

These ballasts offer a long lamp life at a reasonable cost. They have been used for years with lighting controls to provide energy savings

LED Lamps

LED lamps are the newest addition to the list of energy efficient light sources that emit visible light in a very narrow spectral band

Luminaires

A luminaire, or light fixture, is a unit consisting of various materials used as an energy efficient lighting system
