What is Energy Efficient Lighting?
Lighting efficiency is known as efficacy and is measured in lumens per watt. A lumen measures light output from a lamp. All lamps are rated in lumens. The distribution of light on a horizontal surface is called its illumination. Illumination is measured in footcandles. A footcandle of illumination is a lumen of light distributed over one square foot of area. The amount of light required, measured in footcandles, varies according to the difficulty of a visual task. Ideal illumination is the minimum footcandles necessary to comfortably perform a task at the maximum practical rate of speed without eyestrain. Three categories of lighting by function are: - Ambient lighting - Task lighting - Accent lighting Matching new replacement lamps to existing fixtures and ballasts can be tricky.
