and Lighting (cont):
have a variety of lighting fixtures in the kitchen (368SF). In the
winter, because it gets dark early, when we built the house in 2006,
we used halogen bulbs to add intense task lighting. These bulbs put
off heat, but that was beneficial to whomever is working directly
under them in winter, and that then minimizes the use of forced air
heat. A few years later, after we monitored the overall energy use,
we decided to switch out some of the halogen bulbs for LED. LED provides
the same amount of lumens without the heat.
We try to remember to turn off lights in rooms not being used.
two 13 watt compact fluorescents over the sink with the tangy lemon
color of the wall puts out ample light in the evening. In the summertime,
these compact fluorescent fixtures provide plenty of task lighting
with the natural sunlight.
For the remainder of the house we use compact fluorescent bulbs in
ceiling, desk and floor lamps.
Fans are installed in most every room for energy efficiency. In
summer, the breeze allows us to use less A/C, and in the winter
the fans distribute the heat back through the room.
Craftmade Energy Star® Ceiling fans were recommended by cousin,TJ
Tindall at the Light Gallery in Princeton, New Jersey for their
quality of performance, energy efficiency and quiet operation. The
reason we didn't buy locally for this product is that we wanted
to support our family member and these fans have been tried and
tested effectively in the N.E.
