Thanks man. You know how to reach me, so whenever you are ready. Compliments of the season.
So far, I have spoken about the cost benefits associated with retrofitting two different kinds of compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL’s). However, these savings are not limited to only these types of bulbs. Many people are unaware of the fact that CFL’s can be found to replace most of the commonly used incandescent bulbs. Thus, the potential savings from lighting retrofits are abundant. The two light bulbs blogged about earlier are referred to as spiral light bulbs. These have a unique shape that is intriguing to some and an eyesore to others.(Fig. 1) However, they fulfill the very basic function... Continue reading

Hence, the better lit your premises are, the more difficult it is for criminals to engage in their nefarious activities. There exists tremendous opportunity for savings on exterior lighting.

In the late 19th century the American inventor Thomas Edison introduced the incandescent light bulb and revolutionized the way people got their lighting. That was over one hundred years ago. Today, nobody should still be using these bulbs. Incandescent bulbs produce light by passing current through a filament that gets red hot and produces light. Over an average lifetime of 1000 hours, the filament gradually evaporates until its breaks or “blows”. This process is extremely inefficient as the majority of the current used goes to generating heat. In more recent times, alternatives have emerged for lighting. The most common of... Continue reading
