Coopersburg, PA — Lighting control manufacturer Lutron Electronics is helping people make informed, eco-conscious decisions about home lighting controls — and is showing them how to do it with style.
A new, eight-minute, “Save Energy Beautifully” video educates viewers on the energy-saving benefits of Lutron lighting controls and shading solutions while demonstrating how to use them throughout the home.
“It’s a purchase you feel good about,” said Andy Wakefield, director of Lutron’s home systems business unit. “Lutron dimmers save energy and make bulbs last longer, and at the same time, look great on the wall and create ambiance.”
Lutron products are available in more than 25 colors and finishes.
Though all Lutron products save energy, the video features Lutron’s Eco-Dim collection of dimmers, the HomeWorks whole-home lighting control system and Sivoia QED shading solutions, all of which offer numerous energy-saving benefits at a variety of price points.
Designed for homeowners, architects, system designers and installers, the video can be downloaded and viewed free of charge from the Lutron website: www.lutron.com/greenhomevideo/green_expo_build.htm
Did you know?*
Installing one dimmer in every US home in place of a standard light switch would:
Save $230 million in electricity per year
Reduce CO2 by 4.3 billion pounds per year
Be equivalent to taking 370,000 cars off the road
A 1,500-hour incandescent bulb will last nearly ten years when dimmed 33% and used three hours per day. That’s longer than the average American keeps a home.
Dimming your lights 25% saves 20% in energy.
Incandescent bulbs last 20 times longer if dimmed by 50%.
