Using high power LED (Light Emitting Diode) as a replacement for tungsten filament lamps and halogen lamps.
Led lights can be used for household solid lamps, including floodlights, spotlights and track lighting, colored and color changing lights, and can be used for residential lighting, commercial lighting,accent lighting,reading lights, display lighting, desk lamps, business lighting, security lamps, walkway lighting, illuminant lighting, hotels, restaurants, bars and night clubs.
Benefits of Led lights:
1)LEDs are better energy efficiency over incandescent bulbs and most halogen bulbs,saving energy 80% to 90%
2)LEDs have a very long operating life(up to 100,000 hours)
3)Cool light output(no UV or heat energy)
4)Narrow, medium and wide angle lenses
6)Any combination of lighting colors are available,eg. Warm White Color, Daylight white or Cool White,Natural white,Amber,Orange,Pink,Red,Cyan,Blue,Royal Blue, Green.
Things you should consider when looking for and selecting a LED light bulb:-
2)Check the size of bulb.Not all LED lights bulbs are the same size as your existing halogen light bulbs,so check the dimensions of the bulb before you buy as it might not fit in your light fitting.
3)When you buy LED bulbs,you must match the base sizes.Most common household fixtures have pin or Edison,also known as screw-in,bases.
4)Check the lumens and the beam angle.The lumen output of the bulb is a measure of its brightness.The higher the figure,the brighter the LED bulb.Some LED bulbs give a false impression of brightness as they have a very narrow beam,resulting in a bright light but that is only very narrow in size.Read More
Open the box that the light came in and examine the contents.There should be a package with instructions and mounting hardware included,a fixture and a globe.
Firstly,shut the power off at the fuse panel to the circuit.Use a tester to be sure the power is off at the box.
To prepare electrical connection,use razor knife and cut 6inches of outer sheath coating off of NM wire.Trim off,remove the paper inner wrapping.Strip about 3/4″ of the conductor insulation from the wires.
Install the mounting bracket by fastening it to the box using two 8-32 screws.Install the green ground screw into the bracket.Thread the longer 8-32 screws into the bracket to hold the main body of fixture tightly.
Next connect the ground wire from the feeder wire and the ground wire from the fixture to the bracket ground screw.Tie the white wires together using a wire nut.Now,connect the two black wires together using a wire nut.Gently push the excess wire back into the box alongside the bracket.
Now press the fixture up towards the box and align the screw holes.The screws should come out of the holes provided.Twist the fixture to secure the screws in the hole slots.Tighten the screws,but not over tighten.Be sure that there are no wires hanging out of the side of the fixture base.
Install the light bulbs.Don’t exceed the maximum wattage for the bulbs for safety sake!
Take the globe provided and install it on the fixture.This may be attached by using clips provided in the package,or by using screws on the outside of the fixture.
Now turn the circuit back on and test the fixture by turning the switch on!Read More
There are many ways one can show their creativity within a home,especially when it comes to lighting.Lighting fixtures do not have to only be standard fixtures,but can be arranged within a room to appear to be eye-pleasing works of art,rather than just functional lights.All it takes is a little creativity on your part.
Globe lights displayed within a hallway can appear to the eye as floating bubbles or spheres.
Wall mount fixtures can make a straight staircase appear to be aglow with stars. Not only are these beautiful,they enhance your stairway too.
Instead of using chandeliers over a rectangular dining room table,try using multiple pendants to create the feel of a large chandelier.
Using two drum shade pendants is another eye-catching chandelier alternative.
Florescent styles are also very versatile.They can accent a breakfast nook or small bar or even bring design and flair to an unused corner of your interior.
Color can be amazing when used in the right location.For instance,highlighting a wall, using cove lighting in a bar area or theater,or placing halo lighting around art sculptures or bookshelves can pack just the right punch of color.
Mix and match fixtures that work well together.Each area has a different feel and thus needs its own unique lighting.You do not need to be concerned with everything matching within an open space;similarity in shape,color or finish can be enough to tie different fixtures together.
Instead of the ancient style switches,trendy and stylish switchboards and switches have hit the market and are in great demand nowadays.You can match your switchboards with the colour of the paint of the rooms and contrast the switches accordingly.Read More

Lighting is area of household decoration that is very rarely given the consideration that it deserves. Lighting can have a profound effect on the appearance of a home and on the atmosphere within a home. This is because the impact of lighting is twofold. Firstly, the light itself has an effect upon the appearance of the home, whether it is switched on or off. It is as much a part of a room as the curtain rails or the carpets. Secondly, the effect produced by the light when it is switched on can impact greatly upon the atmosphere of the room, potentially creating a cosy and warm feeling to the home.

Commercial and largely available pellet mills are usually used in the manufacturing of wood pellets or træpiller (Danish term for woods pellets). Nowadays, one sees mall pellet mills that are easily available and not expensive for an individual to buy for daily use. Pellet stoves are a big attraction for people as they learn to make their own pellets at home.
The raw material required in making these pellets include unused wood, cardboard, magazine covers, any sort of waste paper, etc. You need to make sure that all these materials are broken down to finer particles than sawdust, for being able to work efficiently. One can use a chipper or hammer mill as well to achieve the finer result.
Three simple and easy steps involved to make wood pellets are: Drying, Conditioning and Pelletizing.
1 First Step– You need to ensure that all your material is dry in order to hold the ten to twenty percent of the moisture. You may use a commercial dryer or air dry the material for the same.
2 Second Step –In order to ensure the moisture content and for it to be consistent at the given percentage, one might need to add some water too if the material is too dry. Binding agents like corn starch, corn flour, or vegetable oil can be added to the pellet to act like an adhesive and to hold the pellets together
3 Final Step – One must condition the material properly and mix it well. The two main components of the mill is a roller that presses the medium through the second component which is a die with holes of the size of a pellet. Once the squeezed pellets are out, they start cooling off and sticking to each other to form pellets.

For a beautiful and unusual bonsai, the Cape Honeysuckle is an excellent choice. This plant is well regarded among bonsai enthusiasts for its quickly developing thick trunk, unique bark, verdant leaves, and bright and fragrant flowers. The plant is native to the southern areas of Africa, such as Swaziland, South Africa, and Mozambique. In the wild, it grows as a vining shrub, though it is often used as a hedge plant by man in areas as diverse as the United States, Asia, and Hawaii. Though usually an evergreen (as it typically grows in areas that do not reach colder temperatures), it will drop leaves and re-grow them in the spring if it subjected to a colder climate.
Cape Honeysuckle can be acquired as simply as digging one out of the wild, if it does not have too large a trunk. As the plant grows quickly, it responds well to pruning, and can be subsequently shaped in this way. Another option for wild collection, if the trunk is too large, is to collect a runner or other thick cutting to use as the base for a new plant. Small honeysuckle plants may also be acquired from nurseries, though it may be difficult to find a small enough plant, as most nurseries sell the plants for hedging purposes, where the goal is quick growth to maturity.
Though it is often lumped into the category of a “tropical” bonsai, the Cape Honeysuckle actually tends to react more like a temperate plant to bonsai techniques. However, in terms of soil, the plant will respond best to a typical tropical mix, with around 60% of the soil devoted to aggregate (i.e., crushed rock or clay pellets) and around 40% devoted to organic matter. To encourage flowering, the plant will require frequent fertilization, such as blood meal or bone meal. The plant responds best to early springtime repotting (repotting later in the year may stall its growth). It responds well to moderate amounts of root pruning.
In terms of shaping the Cape Honeysuckle bonsai, the plant is like a tropical bonsai in that its thicker branches are difficult to shape with wire. Once branches become woody, they are fairly impossible to bend without breaking. To wire branches, select those that are still green and pliable. Stems grow with compound leaves issuing from a central stem, and so to increase density, the stem can be trimmed back to just the first pair of leaves. However, as flowers develop at the end of stems, to achieve a flowering plant, it is necessary to let the stems grow.
In terms of display of the plant, there are several pertinent considerations. Because of the vibrancy of the flowers, the plants show well in glazed bonsai pots with contrasting cool colors such as green or blue. Informal styling is easiest with these plants, as they do not respond well to formal styles. Larger plants also work best because it is necessary to allow growth in order to get flowers. In terms of placement, bright sunlight is necessary, or else growth will stall.Read More
No place is worthy of attracting any eyeballs if it is devoid of adequate lighting. People put a lot of thinking while they prepare their interiors and lighting is given utmost importance which it totally deserves. However, the same concern is lost while outdoor lighting is taken into consideration. One should remember that before even having a glance, the beholder will go through your outdoors and bad lighting may spoil the first impression. This may be avoided by following the basic yet necessary tips for outdoor lighting given by the experts in this field like the Newcastle lighting centre ceiling lighting people. The first tip is to have a proper distribution of power on the lines. It sometimes happens that a certain circuit is overloaded while some other is left underutilised. The www.newcastle-lighting-centre.co.uk lighting professionals say that one should form a benchmark for circuit load, say 100 Watts of every circuit.
The next tip of the Newcastle lighting centre ceiling lighting people which should be followed while considering outdoor lighting is to have a lighting which is aesthetically appealing. It should not look as if your garden is being provided with an electrical skeleton. The purpose of lighting is to augment the beautification of your place and if it goes on to hamper it in some way or the other, then you have missed this tip. The www.newcastle-lighting-centre.co.uk experts also suggest providing minimal but apt lighting so that the natural light of the place is not engulfed by your arrangement.Read More
In the recent years, a lot of time has been devoted to the inspection of the natural energy reserves and it has been found out, to general dismay, that there aren’t a lot of the original, non-renewable energy resources left and even the remaining stocks are dwindling at an accelerated pace, given the high rate of industrialization and the process of urbanisation, which has had a debilitating effect on the energy resources of the planet.
More people are becoming aware of this shortage and measures are being taken in order to curtail excessive energy consumption.There is need for energy efficient appliances in the apartments, and heat pumps or varmepumper (as the Danish like to refer to them), are ideal examples of such devices.
The main objective of the heat pump is to transfer thermal energy from the source which has lower concentration of it, to the sink, which is at a higher concentration. This process is naturally set against the standard heat gradient and takes place in a direction which is opposite to the natural, spontaneous flow of thermal energy.
Therefore, this process is powered by external electrical energy, which is converted into mechanical energy by the machine. There are two main types of heat pumps. The first is the Geo-thermal heat pump unit, which might be composed of an open loop or a closed loop system.
The second kind is the Standard Split System, which is more energy consumptive and is employed in large-scale heating projects. The amount of energy that is released by a typical heat pump is two to three times more than the amount of energy that is consumed by it in its functioning. Hence, it shows that heat pumps are very efficient devices. For more information on them, visit klimacompagniet.dkRead More
