design choices can meet lighting needs and save energy
Convenient and effective artificial lighting is one of the important
advances of the 20thcentury. Artificial lighting allows us to
work and play inside and outside our homes independent of the
time of day, and also often serves aesthetic purposes. Artificial
lighting Is generally employed for three types of uses:
Ambient lighting—Provides general illumination
indoors for daily activities and outdoors for safety and security.
Task lighting—Facilitates particular tasks that
require more light than is needed for general illumination, such
as under-counter lights in kitchens, table lamps, or bathroom
Accent lighting—Draws attention to special
features or enhances the aesthetic qualities ofan indoor or outdoor
environment. Recent technological improvements allow homeowners
to substantially reduce the energy they use for lighting without
loss of amenity.
