Interior Lighting

Lighting is the secret weapon for all aesthetics. A beautiful model could look utterly plain if he or she were lit by the wrong lighting. This idea is especially true when we talk about architecture and interior design. Interior lighting is important because of all the conflicting dynamics at play. There is a myriad of factors to consider when thinking about any form of interior lighting. Do you want some light that will illuminate the entire room? Do you want lights that are designed to draw the eye of visitors? How does the light work with the shadows it will create? How does the light work with natural [...]

Federal Pacific Panel Danger

Federal Pacific was one of the top manufacturers of circuit breaker panels from the 1950s all throughout the 1980s. Federal Pacific was responsible for millions of panels all over the United States. For years these panels seemingly worked without a hitch. Things changed when certified electricians and inspectors began to discover that the federal pacific panels were faulty. The panels did not protect homeowners and were, in fact, making them far less safe. Further reviews of the panels showed that the panels were working fine until the circuit breakers experienced a surge or a short circuit. Once that happened the panels were prone to overheating and began to [...]

LED Lighting

The modern incandescent light bulb was invented in 1880 by Thomas Edison. It has gone on to become the global standard in residential lighting. Unfortunately, incandescent light bulbs are also outdated and inefficient. These incandescent bulbs only convert about 5% of its energy into light, and they convert 90% of that same energy into heat. The fact that so much energy is wasted leads to inflated energy bills. The filament that heats up to create light in these bulbs is also notoriously finicky. These old bulbs are wasting thousands of dollars every single day. Luckily LEDs exist as the modern day solution to residential lighting. LED, or Light [...]
