Residential lighting technologies

  1. 1. September 21, 2011RESIDENTIAL LIGHTINGTECHNOLOGIESAnne Thorson, Environmental Lights
  2. 2. Agenda• Advantages of LED Lighting• Standards and Regulations• Selecting LED Lighting for your Home – Kitchens, Closets & Curio Cabinets – Hallways, Cove & Home Theaters – Ceiling Lights – Landscape LED & Solar Lighting – Christmas Lights• Events & Sponsorships• LED Lighting Supplier www.EnvironmentalLights.com
  3. 3. Environmental Lights• Founded in 2006 by Greg & Anne Thorson• Headquarters in San Diego• Mission: To Be the Best! – Best products – Best information – Best technical support – Best service www.EnvironmentalLights.com
  4. 4. Advantages ofLED Lighting
  5. 5. Advantages of LED Lighting• Long Lasting – 25x longer than incandescent bulbs• Energy-Efficient – Uses less energy per light output • Incandescent = 90% heat given off – San Diego: pay $0.31/hr at the margin• Dimmable – New technologies for smooth dimming• Color Ranges – Variations of white (warm, soft, neutral) www.EnvironmentalLights.com
  6. 6. Advantages of LED Lighting (cont.)• No Mercury – Disposal will not contaminate environment• Instant On (vs CFLs) – Immediately see full brightness• Cost Efficient – Quick payback & costs dropping• Rapidly Developing Technologies – Haitz’s Law www.EnvironmentalLights.com
  7. 7. Haitz’s Law• Prediction about the steady improvement of LEDs over time• The cost per lumen (unit of useful light emitted) falls by a factor of 10• The amount of light generated per LED increases by a factor of 20 www.EnvironmentalLights.com
  8. 8. Evolution of Lighting• Light Emitting Diode • Compact Fluorescent • Incandescent Lights (LED) (CFL)• 85% energy savings • 70% energy savings • 10% energy (90% heat) – 5 watts – 13 watts – 60 watts• 25x longer than • 10x longer than • Dimmable incandescent incandescent• Dimmable• One of todays most energy-efficient and rapidly developing technologies. www.EnvironmentalLights.com
  9. 9. Standards & Regulations
  10. 10. CALiPER Testing Program• Established by the Department of Energy (DOE)• Provide accurate and comparable data on LED products from approved laboratories and testing facilities www.EnvironmentalLights.com
  11. 11. Title 24: CA Energy Efficiency• Part of the California Code of Regulations – Energy Efficiency Standards for Residential and Nonresidential Buildings• Established in 1978 in response to a legislative mandate to reduce Californias energy consumption – Saved more than $56 billion in electricity and natural gas costs• Standards are updated periodically to incorporate new energy efficiency technologies and methods www.EnvironmentalLights.com
  12. 12. Energy Star Partner• Earning the ENERGY STAR means products meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the US Environmental Protection Agency.• An ENERGY STAR qualified light bulb: – can save more than $40 in electricity costs over its lifetime – uses about 75% less energy than standard incandescent bulbs and lasts at least 6 times longer• If every home replaced 1 light bulb we would save enough energy to: – Light 3 million homes for a year – Save about $600 million in annual energy costs – Prevent 9 billion pounds of greenhouse gas emissions per year (equivalent to those from about 800,000 cars) www.EnvironmentalLights.com
  13. 13. Phase-out of Incandescent Bulbs• Moving to more efficient lighting is one of the lowest-cost ways for the nation to reduce electricity use and greenhouse gases.• Beginning Jan. 1, 2011, in California and Jan. 1, 2012, throughout the U.S., incandescent light bulbs will be phased out. Date Wattage January 1, 2012 100W January 1, 2013 75W January 1, 2014 60W & 40W www.EnvironmentalLights.com
  14. 14. Selecting LED Lightingfor your Home
  15. 15. Selecting LED Lights1. How compatible is it with the fixture? – Shape – Size – Socket Type – Voltage: LEDs operate on low voltage direct current www.EnvironmentalLights.com
  16. 16. www.EnvironmentalLights.com
  17. 17. Selecting LED Lights2. How bright is it? – Make sure will provide enough light for your space – Brightness measured in Lumens • Watts measure amount of energy – More Lumens = Brighter Light – Replacing incandescent with LED • 100W bulb = 1600 lumens • 75W bulb = 1100 lumens • 60W bulb = 800 lumens • 40W bulb = 450 lumens www.EnvironmentalLights.com
  18. 18. Lighting Facts Label www.EnvironmentalLights.com
  19. 19. Selecting LED Lights3. What color white is it? – Light color is measured on a temperature scale: Kelvin (K) – Low K for Warm, High K for Cool – Lower Kelvin numbers mean the light appears more yellow • Warm White (2,700 K) is primarily used in personal, friendly, or intimate settings such as a home or restaurant. – Higher Kelvin numbers mean the light is whiter/bluer • Neutral White (4,000 K) is cooler and is commonly used in offices, jewelry displays, galleries and museums. www.EnvironmentalLights.com
  20. 20. Selecting LED Lights3. What color white is it? (cont.) www.EnvironmentalLights.com
  21. 21. Selecting LED Lights4. Does it dim? – LED lights are not compatible with all dimmers – If not properly matched up, could see problems: • Pop-on / Drop-off • Flicker • Dead Travel • Damage – Careful testing on every bulb and dimmer for best results • Environmental Lights Compatibility Guide www.EnvironmentalLights.com
