The following are examples of eco-friendly lighting changes that will help you:
- Installation of microprocessor-based controllers.
- Installation of LED exit signs to replace incandescents.
- Installation of compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) in place of incandescent lamps.
- Installation of high frequency (HF) electronic ballasts in place of conventional ballasts.
- Installation of occupancy sensors, an inexpensive way to ensure that unused lights do not remain on.
- Installation of high pressure sodium (HPS) lamps for applications where color rendering is not critical. Metal halide lamps should also be considered when correct color is important.
- Replacing incandescent wall lights and exit sign lighting with CFL or LED-lit units will not only save a considerable amount of energy, it also will significantly reduce labor costs associated with changing light bulbs, since CFLs and LEDs last much longer than incandescent bulbs.
- Installation of energy-efficient fluorescent lamps in place of conventional fluorescent lamps. Replacing T12 lamps with T8 or T5 lamps are examples of florescent lighting changes.
- Installation of photocells, devices that automatically detect the natural light level in a room and adjust the intensity of the artificial light accordingly.
- If the HVAC system is being upgraded or replaced, the lighting system, too, should be reviewed and the loads attributed to lighting recalculated. When the air conditioning system is optimized, the air conditioning loads will be calculated based on existing lighting systems. If a condo plans to upgrade the lighting, it is best to do so at the time of the HVAC retrofit since the lighting and HVAC systems have a large effect on each other
