compliance standpoint. And that’s not going to change because the factors
driving the movement towards better energy efficiency, like skyrocketing
fossil fuel costs and codes mandating higher standards of building efficiency,
are here to stay
The fact is that lighting consumes a significant portion of the energy in a typical building and that’s why lighting controls that reduce the draw on electricity through dimming and automatic switching can reduce consumption dramatically. Not only do these controls make more efficient use of lighting, they can interact with HVAC and other building systems to extend savings. Another benefit of keeping lights lower (or even off) is that, when it’s warm outside, it reduces cooling requirements and lowers utility bills even further.
Yet there’s more to the increasing demand for lighting controls on both an individual and a public level. There is a new awareness of the importance of reducing our energy consumption not only to make us less reliant on fossil fuels but also to protect our natural resources, including the air we breathe. Then there’s the compliance side. Although codes do vary on a state and local basis, the trend throughout the country is clearly towards mandating higher and higher standards of energy efficiency for all types of buildings, including retrofits, existing building upgrades and new construction.
Lighting controls are required to meet some of these codes, while in others they may be one of several options for meeting standards. No company offers a broader range of lighting control products for optimizing energy efficiency than Leviton. Leviton offer sensors, dimming systems, timers and relay systems for creating energy-saving lighting control systems for every imaginable type application, in any environment.
