Lighting

 

 

Lighting and controls is a huge, constantly changing, dynamic market. The ELECTRICAL CONTRACTOR lighting editorial listed below keeps current on technological innovations from LEDs, controls, and design to innovations in efficiency by traditional lighting formats. 

Simply stated, the Sistine Chapel is a really big room with many remarkable paintings, but there are many stories behind the hall and its art.


The light-emitting diode (LED) offers energy savings, lower maintenance requirements and other advantages compared to incandescent sources. However, many LED products perform poorly with existing dimmer controls.


Lighting plays a critical role in retail spaces. It can attract customer attention; display merchandise in a compelling way; affect customer experience; and communicate brand, quality and price point. 


As energy-saving automatic lighting controls become more popular for retrofit options in existing buildings, electrical contractors may find themselves in a position of estimating energy savings to justify owner investment.
