Re: Lighting Question


There are a lot of new LED’s of various configurations that have high quality color rendering. Aside from the no-UV advantage, they emit very little heat and use much less energy even than fluorescents. If you are using motion detectors, there’s another advantage – unlike fluorescents they fire immediately. In ordinary use they last about 20 years, so in this case, they will last well past your retirement!

Actually, I often recommend a relatively high light level in storerooms to make sure that dangerous conditions – drips or powdery objects or bugs – are visible without much effort.
