Energy Conservation in Lighting System

In this post, some of the tips for energy conservation in lighting system is given. One of the best energy-saving devices is the light switch. Turn off lights when not required.

Automatic devices

Many automatic devices can help in saving energy used in lighting. Consider employing infrared sensors, motion sensors, automatic timers, dimmers and solar cells wherever applicable, to switch on/off lighting circuits.

Reading lamp

As far as possible use task lighting, which focuses light where it's needed. A reading lamp, for example, lights only reading material rather than the whole room.

Clean tube light

Dirty tube lights and bulbs reflect less light and can absorb 50 percent of the light; dust your tube lights and lamps regularly.

Fluorescent tube lights and LEDs

Fluorescent tube lights and LEDs convert electricity to visible light up to 5 times more efficiently than ordinary bulbs and thus save about 70% of electricity for the same lighting levels. Ninety percent of the energy consumed by an ordinary bulb (incandescent lamp) is given off as heat rather than visible light. Replace your electricity-guzzling ordinary bulbs (incandescent lamps) with more efficient types LED bulbs.
