Remodeling – Sunnyvale – Energy Efficient Lighting
What does energy efficient lighting mean for you?
Is there anything you absolutely must do?
What it means to you
Mostly it means to diminish the use of incandescent light bulbs, as they draw a lot of power (watts) relative to the amount of light they give (lumens).
Types of energy efficient lighting is:
- compact florescent
Currently, LED lighting is not the best quality, but it seems its getting better almost every month.
If you really want high quality light, you can get florescent or compact florescent bulbs designed to growing plants indoors.
They are a bit pricey (I bought two a few years ago for $18 each) but they give almost daylight quality light.
What must you do
What the various planning departments make you do is called Title 24.
The main lighting requirements of Title 24 are:
- 50% of your lighting power (watts, not lumen’s) must be from florescent fixtures that are not able to accommodate an incandescent bulb.
- Some cities allow incandescent lighting in the bathroom if you install a motion sensor switch.
