    I was asked today by my journeyman if lighting circuits in resi kitchens need an AFCI. The lights on the circuit are only in the kitchen. I looked it up in the code book and kitchens, as far as I can tell, aren't on the list of rooms where it is required. I was wondering if anyone on here...

    Next July, many, many fluorescent lamps will be outlawed due to the new DOE ruing. Those who market T5s as something special will claim how they're more efficacious and such. So, here we have the government, imposing stiffer standards on T8s and T12s than supposedly "more" efficacious T5s...

    I decided to take a few since what I can find is just color chip comparison. CRI is calculated based on how it renders eight standard color chips, hence "Ra8". Its easier to compare on spec sheets, but they don't always tell you the true story. Different color temperatures look different...

    I found this thing online, then I also found this company spamming on other sites. To condense pages of their marketing sham, the retrofit kit is basically a daughter-board that hangs from existing fixture shell. The daughter-board has its own reflector and an integral ballast with 0.95BF...

    There are some who swear that LEDs are more efficient and superior to fluorescent for general lighting, but I firmly believe that LEDs just do not even come close to being competitive with fluorescent system for general lighting. I think LEDs have an edge in single digit wattage accent...

    We're getting a great deal of e-mails and phone calls from electricians and lighting designers here in California with questions about the new Title-24 (California's state energy code) residential lighting requirements that have changed starting January 1, 2010 and the new CF-6R-LTG-1 that...

    I am attempting to install a switch inside of a gun safe that will turn on the inside lighting when the sfe door is opened and turn off the lights when it is closed. Power is located inside the safe. So far, I have only found 30vdc switches. Are any 120V magnetic switches available? The lamp...

    I am installing recessed lights in a soffet under construction in my master bedroom. I have installed the regular HALO 6" (new install) IC cans with wire nuts. All is fine, life is good. Problem: One non-HALO eyeball 5" special fixture has the junction box on top of its non-IC can. This is a...
