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.
Task lighting is invariably going to be needed in the home. This kind of lighting is used in the kitchen and the bathroom most often because these are the places where the majority of \"tasks\" are carried out. Whether it is chopping carrots, cooking a curry or applying makeup, good task lighting is absolutely essential. In the kitchen you need bright lights over the counter tops and over the cooker too. Often houses have large open plan kitchens or kitchens with a table in for eating from. In these cases you don't want bright task lighting on all the time. During meals or when you are simply relaxing in the room you are going to want a calmer, more atmospheric glow. The ideal solution is having bright task lighting with dimmer switches. When you need a lot of light they can be turned up high, and when you need only a little light they can be turned right down.
In the garden, lights can really make the space come alive. Having lights in the trees and lights near to a table will ensure you can eat outside all year round (subject to the temperature of course!) Another aspect of outside lighting is for security purposes. Having a light that comes on when there is motion nearby can be a very effective deterrent for anyone wishing to break into your home. Being lit up, the house can be clearly visible from all around and this makes it much less likely to be targeted by burglars. Interior lighting can also work as a good security measure. Leaving a few lights on around the home that are clearly visible from outside makes the house appear to be occupied so think about this when planning your home lighting too. With so much to think about when it comes to home lighting, it is important you make a good plan. Security lighting and all interior lighting is important to both the look and feel of the house and of course for security purposes.
