What is Kelvin?

3 06 2010
COLOR TEMPERATURE

The color of the light source. By convention, yellow-red colors (like the flames of a fire) are considered warm, and blue-green colors (like light from an overcast sky) are considered cool. Color temperature is measured in Kelvin (K) temperature. Confusingly, higher Kelvin temperatures (3600–5500 K) are what we consider cool and lower color temperatures (2700–3000 K) are considered warm. Cool light is preferred for visual tasks because it produces higher contrast than warm light. Warm light is preferred for living spaces because it is more flattering to skin tones and clothing. A color temperature of 2700–3600 K is generally recommended for most indoor general and task lighting applications. (DOE)

Lighting Tips To Save Money

3 05 2010

Money-Saving Lighting Tips

  • Turn off lights when not in use
  • Place light reflecting floor lamps and hanging lamps in corners or near walls to produce better room lighting
  • Replacing incandescent bulbs with CFLs or LEDs reduces heat — your air conditioner won’t need to work as hard
  • Place ENERGY STAR qualified CFLs in fixtures you use most frequently — certain CFLs are designed to work in dimmable, three-way fixtures that are hard to reach, such as ceiling fans and outdoor light fixtures
  • CFLs and LEDs last longer and won’t need to be changed as often as an incandescent bulb
  • ENERGY STAR qualified CFLs come in a variety of sizes — today’s CFLs are designed to be smaller and thinner than earlier models
  • Replace incandescent fixtures with ENERGY STAR qualified CFL fixtures

Manufactures are now ending production of incandescents –

29 03 2010

It’s coming time to change your outdated incandescents, halogen, and T12 Linear fluorescent lamps out to the more energy smart technology.

Toshiba Corporation and Toshiba Lighting & Technology Corporation, a Toshiba group company, last week marked the end of production of general-use incandescent bulbs, a product which Toshiba was first to manufacture in Japan and that it has produced for 120 years.

Toshiba decided to focus on environmentally-friendly lighting in 2008, and since then has been advancing a transition to new lighting products, particularly LED lighting.
