ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENT:
There are various different motivations to improve energy efficiency. Reducing energy use reduces energy costs and may result in a financial cost saving to consumers if the energy savings offset any additional costs of implementing an energy efficient technology. Reducing energy use is also seen as a key solution to the problem of reducing emissions. According to the International Energy Agency, improved energy efficiency in buildings, industrial processes and transportation could reduce the world's energy needs in 2050 by one third, and help control global emissions of greenhouse gases

Energy efficiency and renewable energy are said to be the twin pillars of sustainable energy policy. In many countries energy efficiency is also seen to have a national security benefit because it can be used to reduce the level of energy imports from foreign countries and may slow down the rate at which domestic energy resources are depleted.

 

 SAFETY OF LAMPS:
Do not leave your lamps on when you are starting your generator:
The gen usually starts with a high rev. which most times has higher voltage than the running voltage of the gen. Lamps with lower tolerance to voltage will fail at this point. Gen sets without AVR  will always burn lamps at this point. Bigger diesel generators can also have this issue. Always allow your generator to stabilize before adding load.

 

NEON VS LED:
Neon has historically been the most common way of lighting outdoor electric signage. It has the ability to be made in many shapes, unlike incandescent and has a considerable life which lends it towards permanent installations.
While there are some situations where Neon adds a unique look to a sign, like signs that have exposed neon within their lettering, it is no longer the preferred technology for internally lighting enclosed signs or letters. Of course it will be around for a long time because many companies have invested a lot of time, capital and equipment into their ability to produce neon signs and are not able or willing to change. There are also many legacy signs in use that
will continue to need repair and maintenance, although those are being upgraded to LED’s in some cases.
While Neon may have had its day in the channel letter business, it still is an excellent, eye-catching tool for indoor and window displays. In fact we strongly suggest that all our retail
clients purchase a stock or custom neon window sign to attract a lot more attention. Now we have Neon-like LEDs which replaces the neon in open signs.

 

 ILLUMINATION:
Good lighting is that which is based on the four cornerstones of function, form, flexibility and trust. Poor light inhibits us and makes us dissatisfied with our surroundings, while pleasant lighting stimulates our senses. Detail and colors bring vividness to our surroundings, structure and provide character which makes everyday activities become both functional and appealing
