Lighting upgrades are efficient ways to increase the comfort of your new home as well as to reduce its energy consumption. Here are some upgrades that you might want to consider:
- Install dimmable switches – these modern switches allow you to adjust the intensity of the light delivered by your fixtures to your actual requirements. Dimmer switches can prolong the lifespan of your fixtures, they contribute to energy savings, they enhance the room’s functionality and allows for adjusting the light to the desired atmosphere;
- Install motion sensors – motion sensors turn the lights in the room on when they detect the presence of a person and they turn the lights off when there is no one in the room for a certain period;
- Layer the light – having one, central source of light in a room is not the most efficient illumination method. Try to determine the points in the room where light is required, such as the coach where you usually sit when reading a book or the desk and illuminate those areas strategically. You can combine the central fixture with illumination installed to add atmosphere, such as recessed lights and you can also add task lights for increased comfort.
