What are the different lighting choices available? There are many energy-saving light bulbs available, such as compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), light emitting diodes (LEDs), etc. Although they cost more than the traditional incandescent bulbs, however, save a lot of money because they use less energy. One can easily find these in almost every hardware and home improvement store and can be fixed by taking help of a professional electrician.
Retractable cords allow you to use one light more efficiently if you need more illumination without needing to use other recessed or ambient lighting at the same time. You may also want white LED lights for brightness and to save on energy costs.
One of the more unique and visually-pleasing lighting techniques in decorative garden lighting is the use of fiber optics. Fiber optics is the science of transmitting light via optical fibers. Optical fibers are extruded cylinders of plastic or glass used to transmit light. All that is required to illuminate the optic fibers is a single light bulb; making fiber optic lighting an affordable garden lighting choice. Another great advantage of fiber optic lighting is that it uses no electrical current; therefore it is safe to place in and around water without danger of electrocution. Therefore, fiber optic lighting can be used to illuminate a garden pond, tree trunks and branches, shrubs, plant containers and even a patio deck.
Consider the size of your kitchen and then identify areas where you need task lights. If you have a kitchen island, you will definitely want pendant lights over it. The size of the pendant must be in relative to the island size.
Other Important factors: It is recommended to get a professional home energy audit with the help of a professional electrician. This helps one to pinpoint areas where the home is losing energy and what all improvements are required to save money in the long run. The professional recommends making upgrades in a home energy audit, which can save up to 10%-30% of the annual utility bill.
